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.
