Wanna see a foal born?

My friend's mare foaled yesterday! She has a video of the birth. Now, this was a scary birth. It was a red bag, aka Placenta Previa. What this means is the placenta detached prematurely, so now the foal is no longer getting oxygen. If the foal is not delivered QUICKLY it will have brain damage and/or suffocate and die :( You can hear the panic in their voices as they work quickly to deliver the foal!

Wow, that is absolutely incredible. I started crying when the foal started breathing and opened its eyes and looked around.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Just ...... Wow! Thanks for sharing.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who was crying from the video! I even knew the foal was just fine but I was still praying as I watched it!
