    I would def up her feed...my mare foaled 3 weeks ago and she is eating more than she did when she was pregnant with him!! She is also getting a lot more exercise chasing him around and making the others keep their distance when necessary so that combined with nursing has really increased her appetite.

    Foal
    Congratulations on your COLT!! Our mares decided to go on the same night and close to the same time as each other! My mare foaled a blue eyed filly yesterday at 9:45 pm! (foals of 2013 thread).

    More Pics

    Here are some pictures I took yesterday afternoon. I have upped her feed intake.
    My BO said Silver did not seem to know what to do after He was born said she walked away and started eating but now she is being a good mom she cleaned him and is letting him nurse. She gets upset if he wanders too far.

    They are going to stay in the barn until we get more weight on her.

    The picture of his face is blurred, he moved just as I took the picture.

    She and the foal are going to get some turn out time correct? Keeping them locked up to try and put weight on her without allowing them any real turn out isn't healthy.

    Oh yes they will get to go out in the arena. When it is not raining. Mom has to have turn out time. She does not like being in the stall all the time.

    Just keeping them in for a couple of days until we are sure she has bonded well with the little one. She wasn't sure about what to do when he was born.

    So which is it? Keeping her in to put weight on or keeping her in to bond? Sounds like if she's worrying about him and allowing him to nurse, etc, that bond is there.
