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.

Thanks:)
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.
