I don't suggest messing with the baby at all in the first couple of mins, let her bond with her baby. The baby should be up before 20 mins as well. If you drinks from a bottle first it might have a hard time drinking from momma.

yeah I plan on imprinting though. So what i've been told to do is wait untill the umbilical cord breaks give it time to bond to mom then imptrint before it stands. And then after it stands and gets it's first milk. That is if I manage to make it for the birth at all! She is throwing me for loops wit her signs lol

ok here is an update from today. I check her this morning on the way to school but didn't bring a camera. She had major waxing this morning! Now most of it's gone? Except for a little on that one teat. I'm assuming it'll be back. I've tried to locate some milk test strips but can't seem to find any anywhere so we are just going to pop by walmart and get some of the ph pool kits. And what ph level am I looking for? A 6.0? And for the dirty vulva lol excuse it she had just went to the bathroom. We milked her today! And she had milk! It was basically white with maybe a opaque yellowish tint. And it was kind of thick looking. So maybe we are close?

Here are my most concern questions as of right now
1. I don't have any idodine in the house but I have betadine. Will that work to dip the umbilical cord stub in once it's broken off?
2. I bought a foal blanket 2 weeks ago and it was snowing then. Today it was in the 70s and I think it gets int the low 40s at night lately. Is a blanket really necessary? I never blanket my horses but I figured since it was small and it was snowy at the time and I didn't know when it was comming it may need it.
3. What ph am I looking for on the test strips for her milk?
4. I haven't been able to feel the foal move for about 2 months now or really see it for that matter. Not necessarily because it's not moving( I don't know if it is or not) her had been to hard to really press in and feel. And now that it's softened up towards her hips. When you go to push in to feel she flies into a hissy squealing and kicking her legs so we don't really try. Is not being able to see and feel it normal? Is her belly being hard in general normal?

Now for pictures from when we fed today plus more breathing/maybe contraction videos
have another video on the way but i's taking 20 minutes to upload
