I just got my foal on Sunday! She was untouched as well, and it was quite a rodeo when she was delivered. Three days later, she let me pick out all her burdocks and brush her all over with a soft brush. I even picked up all her feet! I just hung out in the stall with her and went slow. She is loving her shur-gain foal ration and little treats. I'm just in love with her now!
GL with your little one!

i would think not becasue they dont have much body fat to keep them warm and all their energy needs to be concentrated on growing, not keeping warm

DONT. dont even attempt that!!!!! get them used to everything first and get them grooming and things like that. clippers can be a challenge for some horses. thats not one of the first things you want to introduce to them, especially if they have not been handled. plus you dont want to be clipping that much needed hair. they dont have much body fat yet.
