Are you going to geld him ?

Good luck with him, he's gorgeous.
He's not mine, belongs to a friend. I'm not sure what she's going to do, but I'm guessing he will end up a gelding at some point.

Update: The new nurse mare from Kentucky has a lot more milk and the two of them are getting along famously. I think he's actually going home tomorrow? I need to ask Jeannine! Considering the heartbreak with his biological dam, I think this is the best outcome we could ask for: infections all cleared up, all vitals are go, and he has a new mom to nurse and teach him manners till he's weaned. I'll definitely be taking more photos of him as he grows

I'm so glad the folks at Virginia Tech saved and took such good care of him...I know I've said this before, but they really do fantastic work at that hospital and I'm so grateful they are close by! After losing the mother, Ficus is definitely going to be a forever horse for Carol.

Yup, he went home today. The nurse mare is pretty rough around the edges: thin, full of worms (was, anyway), bad feet and blind in one eye. But she sure produces a lot of milk, he gained 13 pounds after one day with her
