    So the colt i've been waiting for was born on wednesday afternoon. Sadly the breeder was not there to witness, nor help assist in foaling. So when the baby was finally born, the placenta(sp?) didn't break and the baby died:( he was a dark palomino colt with a full back blanket. Choosen name: Razzle. Comments?

    Maybe he was born dead??? If he was, that could explain why mum didn't bother cleaning him off...

    Usually the placenta comes off rather easily. Was the mare being fed fescue hay. Most foals and calves I have seen born break thier face out of the placenta before they are all the way out. Like a previous poster said, I wonder if the foal was still born. It really doesn't matter much now but it is sometimes helpful to know the next time.
