What today brought
Today I put Hunny in the foaling stall for the first time so she can begin to get used to it. I had to back her into the barn which is a tad irritating, but no biggie. I left her in the stall for only a few hours, and she was fine. Hooves were also trimmed today!
Other updates: she has runny stools now, her butt is sinking in, her tail is relaxed, she is laying down a lot, and is still kicking, stomping, and coughing. Spoke to a lady at the stable today who used to work for a big breeder in Texas. She personally welcomed well over 100 foals into this world, so of course I listened to what she said. She puts Hunny at 1-3 weeks as well, and said that the day she starts waxing is the day I need to watch her like a hawk.
Since there are only 2 foaling stalls, and the weather kinda sucks right now, those of us with pregnant mares are having to rotate nights with our horses. This is going to be fun isn't it?
On a different note, something happened today that I never expected to happen. I got excited to see this baby. I blame the super cute baby that is only 24 hrs old. She is just such a doll!
Ok here are photos of Hunny from today!
