New foals spend alot of time lying around and resting.
But,if they are rolling around and up and down like they are uncomfortable then you need to keep a close eye and possibly administer an enema if you don't see that they are passing feces normally.
Things can change very quickly with foals so be sure to keep and eye on him/her till you are satisfied they are not acting out of any discomfort.

mine did that at a day old as well, I thought too that it was playful until he started shivering, then i realized he was impacted and had the vet out to do an enema... I would watch to be sure he is passing manure and urinating ... they do lay down alot and will roll, but it its doing it alot in conjunction with alot of up and down i would have the vet out, best to be safe than sorry, like Phyllis said, things can change VERy quick!!!

He has quit rolling and learned other ways to play.. he looks so cute cause he is figureing out how to buck. He is catching onto the halter very fast and does natural sliding stops and spins while running!! I am so excited that he has turned out good. He definately got his mammas lope,He has alot of drive.He takes off before lady even knows hes gone,lol. She nickers and runs after him. He just figured out how to nickers yesterday.. And he also figured out that its fun to rear up and get lady to play with him. He is attemting to eat hay with her so I have to clean out his mouth of stuck hay. He is growing REALLY fast and already has a nice hip and chest. He is gonna be BIG! Here is a pic of him with lady I will get more today if the weather permits them to leave there stall we have hail and high winds moving in.There are also a couple pics of him at 2 days old when it was really cold out.. Oh his dorsal stipe is getting more dominant so I am thinking he may stay grullo!! YAY!!

Well everyone...
"Prince" is doing very good! He knows the fence bounderies although we have only let him out 3 times due to the fecing we have (Barbed wire +babies = not good!)only about 1/4 of the fence is barbed but its still dangerous. He is learning SO fast!! He is 9 days old today and knows how to pick up all 4 feet with no problem, lead, tie, set up(for halter), pivot, and how to give me a heart attack,lol! Tonight is his first night having access to the stall and paddock all night til now I have just left him and lady out for about 6-7 hours daily and put them in the box stall at night. I hope everything goes well tonight (my fingers are crossed) as I am over 5 miles from my barn i cant get there as fast as I would like. But anyways I will be getting more pics tomorrow this is the only new one right now.. He didnt fight at all be tied up he just learned how to untie himself,lol.. OH I am lost on what color he is.. can anyone help?? I put some other pics up from a couple days ago.. Are grey legs a sign of greying out?

Mary~He is just too darn cute! After the heartbreak on the board it is nice to be refreshed as to why we risk the heartache. I think his legs will be black when he sheds out. 5 years ago I had a colt the same bay coloring. He went bay with black legs and is now greying out but his momma is grey. Can't remember is your mare grey? or the stud? One parent must be grey for grey.

Lady is a definate grey with a little blue roan in her(she is an odd color) and also has somewhat of a dorsal stripe (very light but it is there) and daddy is a grullo. Here are pics of both of them
