Blazer

Postby wolfwoman » Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:37 pm

Most of you probably remember Blazer, the Clydesdale/QH cross colt born this past March that was forcefully rejected by his mother and survived neonatal sepsis, dehydration, dummy foal syndrome, and a grapefruit sized wound on his right hip caused by a dog attack the morning he was born (his mother would not protect him). Thanks to Hagyard Equine Medical Institute and his 7 days there, plus the excellent follow up care of our Veterinarian, he survived with no residual problems. I am pleased to say he is doing great, growing, and is a sweet boy. He is not exhibiting the negative behaviors you usually see in an orphan foal. I treat him with gentleness and kindness and he returns it in kind (this was not without some intervention and training, I might add). He is more beautiful every day. He has lost his baby coat and is a gorgeous chocolate bay like his sire, our Clydesdale stallion Ben. He had a huge umbilical hernia that was repaired successfully a month ago (and he was gelded at the same time). He has recovered fully from that surgery. I hope the rest of his life is long and uneventful, as this poor baby has had more than his share of trouble in his nearly 5 short months of life. We would never buy a horse for the money we spent on him, but we will never regret spending it to insure his health and survival. He is nearly weaned from his milk replacer. We just want to finish what we have already purchased. I plan to take some new pictures tomorrow and will post a couple. Thanks to everyone who kept him & us in your thoughts and prayers while he was going through this terrible time. Your support means so much!

Better late than never. We have been having computer problems that have now been solved.
Here are a couple of recent pics of Blazer. We found some old photographs of Ben, our Clyde stallion and Blazer's sire, and Blazer looks just ike Ben did at 5 months old. I don't have those photos in my computer yet, however.

Here is a picture of Blazer with his sire Ben. Ben has taken over "mothering" duties from me. He is really great with his colt. He even lets Blazer eat out of his feed pan!
