If baby keeps struggling to get the little balls out, then enema might be good. But keep watching, if it all passes you can leave her alone. There are about 18" of those meconium balls.
OH! Okay well that's great... thanks for the info! Anyone have any suggestions about the shavings????

At this point, shavings are probably ok. You just don't want a horse foaling on shavings because of the chance of them getting inside the mare during the foaling process and possibly causing infection (the pieces of straw are much bigger in general than the pieces of shavings and are thus less likely to get in).

I agree about the shavings.. should be fine..think the no shaving is just when they foal, but after should be ok...

God that baby is cute! You guys are so lucky! Can you imagine that someone wanted rid of her?!?!?! What a perfect lil face! How about Dawn for a babys name...since her color seems to get darker as she goes the dawn...

Wow, she is absolutely adorable and such a leggy girl. To think, all that excitement and she waits until you aren't looking LOL. I like the name Meesha (my cat has the same name just spelled differently 'Misha', it means "teddy bear" in Russian).

I knew it was comming last night!!! Congrats on a BIG healthy filly!! She is lovely and she has that wonderful unique blaze that I also love on dusty! Does she have a dorsal stripe or anything? Or is she a chesnut?

Awww! She's just gorgeous! Congrats!

She sure has a ton of pretty white markings--beautiful!

I'd go with straw for bedding if you can. The vet I worked for never used shavings because some babies will eat them. Also, straw is less dusty for baby's lungs. :)
