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.
