6 day old orphaned colt
I have had many horses years ago, and getting back into it again with my kids. I have received 2 days ago a orphaned colt he was 4 days at the time and being fed goats milk. His mother died at about 1.5 days due to prolapsed uterus. He did get colostrum, and then they switched him over to goats milk, he has been seen by there vet and she said he looks good at the time, minus a small umbilical hernia (we have been massaging at feeding and it is shrinking). I have had many orphaned animals of many species, and worked with foals with mothers, but never a orphaned foal. SO this is what I have done so far: Tetanus shot, Ecoli antibody given orally, continuing the goats milk and mixing it 50/50 with equine supplement. He came on a bottle and goat/lamb nipple and today he started on bucket feeding. He is consuming about 1 quart every 2-3hrs during the day and we do one feeding in the night (sometimes finishes all sometimes almost). He has choice hay to nibble on but not really shown interest yet. He is very active and running around jumping etc. He had a very soft stool (almost diarrhea) when he arrived, but today appeared to be firmer and more just 'soft' consistency . I have Probios paste on hand, but not sure if it should be given daily or only if he appears to have diarrhea? I was going to start him on creep feed offer next week, or should he be offered sooner? I think he is doing well, but just wondering if there is anything else someone would suggest? all opinions and suggestions would be appreciated!!!!
