Sadly, its time to put her foaling thread to rest and start a new chapter on horse forum for Ellie the baby elephant
***For anyone interested in Spices foaling thread here is 61 pages of some good reading haha Spice's Pregnancy/Foal Thread***
So I'm going to start this thread on an adorable note, with pictures from her birth until now!!!
This is her at a few hours old. She was trying to suckle my fingers before her back legs where even out. I imprinted her, and after about a half hour of watching her flop all over the stall, and trying to eat the walls, we helped her stand up. Her legs where just so long she couldn't get them under her haha It her a whole 30 seconds to find and eat her first meal. From the moment she was born she adored people.
At 3 days old the little terror was trying to knock the stall walls down, so she got her first taste of freedom ( well the amount of freedom a 30 sq ft round pen provides that is)
She was such a scrawny little thing, haha and those long legs sure didn't help
Haha too soon she found out what those long legs were for. She took quite a few tumbles. Haha I should of named her Grace
After a long day of playing we were taking a snooze in the stall.
At 3 days old she was completely halter broke. At 7 days old she lead like a champ.
