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.
Cori wondering why the heck I'm following her around the pasture with a camera.
2 weeks old.
OO!! He is precious! I love the third picture of him.
Aww he's gorgeous. :wink:
He's a little bundle of energy now, runs all over his mom; she's a pushover when it comes to discipline.
He's cute!! boy I wish I could afford having my baby horse stay at the Virginia Tech Center. Your lucky!
Luckily, I don't have to pay for it; that's the breeder's responsibility at this point. However, she is also a good friend, so I'm glad he only had to spend 3 days there.
I hope he's doing okay, he's so gorgeous! Is he a Friesian? I love the 3rd picture, it's so cute :D
aw he's breathtaking
so curly and cute!!!
he is lovely,im sure he will make a good horse/pony when he is older.
