After 2 years of saving and 2 years of waiting, my colt was finally born this year. He came out healthy, but with a detached placenta. As a result, he lost his suck reflex. So he spent the first few days of life at the Virginia Tech vet school, learning that his mom was not a big black monster and that she provides the milk, not the water bucket in the corner.
Anyway, just a few pictures. He's about 3 weeks old now.
They pumped him full of antibiotics at the hospital to keep him from catching any bugs and put a feeding tube in his nose for the first couple of days.
Teaching him to make the jump from bottle to mare.
First leading lesson.
