Did Mom have any problems foaling? Was she carried over long? Did labor last a long time? Any signs the umbilical cord wrapped the foals neck? Red bag birth? Any excessive bleeding from the umbilical cord? Any way she could have been exposed to tetanus, as in not doctoring the cord stump?
We checked her last night at around 9:30 she was showing NO signs at all. Checked her this morning at 7 and the baby was up nursing but still some what wet. So don't know anything about what happened in between time. She is not doing well at all. has no use of her legs, and know her head is doing the same thing. Vet will be out in the AM when they open. Her gums are very pink tho. I read up on dummy foals, that almost sounds like her.

none of my colts feet had the foal slippers that bad..
they had some but came off very quick.

the premie i had though, they looked like that a lot. he would *try* to stand, kinda seemed like a dummy foal.
he was very small, 40 pounds, if you tried to stand him up his legs would cross/buckle and he'd fall. suckle reflex was intact. but legs were definitely not finished developing [the bones/joints.]

Don't know if this one was born early/late on time though. if it was on time then, I have no idea o.O

I've never seen hoof slippers so that picture near broke my heart. I hope it's natural (though the pics on that blog... it looks like an alien thing) and she's okay!

If you google it, there are many articles, but basically, they treat syptomatically and can be successful, depending on the severity.
