Getting Foals Tommorow!!
So after a long unessicary wait, I'm am finally getting my foals!! Don't worry, I am deffintly NOT new to horses, but I am to foals!
My two foals are beautiful paint colts, at 6 months old in a bad situation that I will soon be rescuing them from. But thats another story.
So. I'm driving 7 hours for these foals, and I was planning to feed them grass, I little water soaked bran-ceral for water, and I have straw on the ground so they don't step in their pee. I'm bringing an emergency kit with bandages, but I had the horrible thought one of the foals may try to lay down in my two-horse trailer. Could this happen?? Also, my trailer divider is only about 10HH high. They should be taller than that, do you think? Also, this is their first trailer ride, is there anything I should watch out for?
At home, I have foal-proofed the place they'll be staying, and my other horses will be kept away. I wasn't going to give him any foal grain, I heard that can have some bad effects. I put a basket ball and a hardy stuffed toy on a rope for them to play with, access to fresh water and shade, all that common stuff. Anything eles?
Now names: I wanted them to cordinate, and I wabted them to have show names with their barn names in them:
Rocket to the Moon & Ace of Spades (Ace & Rocket)
Pirates Treasure & 14 Karat Gold (Karat &Treasure
Black Jack & Making it Rain (Jack &Rain)
What do you think? I can't post pictures from my phone, but I will later.
Please I need tips on everything and anything foal! But what I don't need is negative comments, just help.
