Someone thought it would be a good idea to post a thread about how the new foals are doing and all that and I agree, so here it is. I seem to be the New Thread Queen around here. HaHa.

Anyway, we all want to hear about the foals that we all waited for, with each other!

Well I had a palomino colt with 2 blue eyes born April 5th outta my pony mare. He is doing really good.He has been eatting his momma's grain since he was 2 weeks old, I think he wants to wean himself silly little boy. I still haven't named him, I'm not to good with names. My other mare is due on May 20th and she has started to bag up 4 days ago, can't wait hope it's a filly, then I'll have both a boy and a girl. Anyways all is well out here in California.

Well I my mare just had a big chestnut colt yesterday morning, and I've already posted pictures on here. Everybody probably knows this already, but I'm just so excited, I'm telling everyone! Lol. His name is Atticus Cash Finch. Of course I got the name Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird, and his middle name comes from his sire, Dashin' Cashin'.

Emily, nice names! Man, I'd better get on the ball. Don't have mine named yet.

I think the idea of this thread is to keep in touch for those who have foals now. How are they doing? Post pics and so on. Discuss problems, and whatnot. So you are right to use it today. And again, congrats!

I've had two so far. Normally I want fillies, but with these two mares I wanted colts, as they were in foal to an outcross stallion and I wanted a colt to run on in the hope he'd grade as a stallion.

And I got two colts!

This little chap was first - seen here at a couple of hours old. Mare foaled easily in the field at lunch-time!
http://www.irish-draught.net/bookerand.jpg

He doesn't have a PROPER name yet - we call him Buck (because he does - a lot!)

The second wasn't quite so easy! Huge colt who stuck at the shoulders - and then at the hips! Mare wouldn't lie down so I had a hell of a job getting him out.
http://www.saddle-up.org/widget.jpg

Problems weren't over then as the mare bled into the broad ligament and was very poorly (huge vet bill to come) but she's much brighter now and hopefully will make a full recovery.

Only 12 more to go!

Janet-12 to go? Wow! I can't imagine. Glad you got your colts! When is the last one "due?" And do you want fillies next? I want a filly, but feel I'm getting a colt. Probably so I won't be disappointed. LOL But healthy is good-right?

Glad your mares are healthy. Is this a usual thing for you-foaling several out each season?

Well actually, it's 13 - as I have a visiting mare coming in to foal down! Last one is not until 30 August - but she'll be 3 weeks early - she always is!

I'd be VERY happy if ALL the rest were fillies - pure-bred ID fillies are much more saleable at a better price as weanlings - unless a colt is SERIOUS stallion potential - which not many are!

But as long as foals and mares are ok - that's really all that counts. It's the most I've had. Last year it was 10 - and we ended up with 10 healthy mares and 10 healthy foals. I keep praying I can keep up THAT % score!!

It's a girl!!!! 3 am, time to go to bed. What a GOOD mom. She had her just before midnight on Friday night, while I was taking a nap in the car looking in the stall. Perfect, active filly, up in 15 minutes, nursed in 30, and walked, trotted, and tried some canter in circles for two hours. Gave the enema, and about five poops of meconium--good stuff! Huge, black I think, with two tiny white socks behind.

Now I get the weekend to enjoy it all. No name yet, but in about ten years, look for her at Grand Prix dressage!

OK, I'm up now. Gotta go back to the barn and get daylight pictures!

I missed the birth. By the time I saw her down and got in there, baby was already trying to stand. The placenta and cord were off the the side in a neat pile.

I think I got photobucket right. I tried to get the video of her trotting in a circle, but it was taking forever to load. Let's see if this works

Sora and Valeria-Big Congrats!!!! Sora, I too have spent a lot of time in my car with foal watch to be SURE I see the birth, right? But like you, I may very well miss it. From what I hear, these mares are uncanny in their ability to wait until we get that coffee/potty break! Or sneak in a few zzzzzz's from exhaustion, but you were there while she was still wet. Great pictures. She's lovely.

Valerie, glad you got to out smart your mare and see the birth! I'll bet she will be really gorgeous when her color is fully developed, not that she isn't now, of course!

I do love buckskins. I'm thinking about breeding mine to a creamello to see if I can get one.

How are your foals doing Todd? You have a colt and?? Is the second one a colt as well?

Question: Have any of you tested the colostrum, or given supplements or any of that? Just wondering, since there is so much discussion and variation in what people do.

Simple curiosity is all. I guess I'm wondering how often the colostrum is not adequate. I'll have to go research. Don't mean to dampen anyone's enthusiasm. It's just my inquisitive nature. I might have to start a new thread! LOL

Hey Marilyn--Well, not sure what color she is. In the daylight today she was a silver/grey. My vet thought she might be a grey, but that's genetically impossible. Her dad is homozygous black and mom is bay all the way. She actually has some striping on the legs. I'm pretty sure she's going to be black, but we'll see! Striped would be way cool. I'll put some dry daylight pictures on later when I've finally eaten.

CJ--I had the Foal Response, so gave ot last night after she'd drank a bunch. My vet just did the colostrum test, and she was way good. Her recommendation was to do it 100% of the time because if you have a problem, it's a little to do to save a lot. She didn't say how often colostrum is inadequate, but if you catch it right away and do a tranfusion, it's very fixable. The test for colostrum way pretty easy--take blood (ok, that part isn't easy) and put it in a little testng device and wait 8 minutes.

Sora, silver grey often goes to black....although bay is the most likely combination when breeding a bay. (to anything I think) I bet she'll be black

Cool. Black is more interesting than bay. I don't see any sign of brown, and her muzzle is black, so we'll go for black. And the stripes would be great, too. I know dressage is for plain bays, but I like the colorful ones.

It is now 1120. Stormy foaled at 1050PM MST. Big bay colt. She still hasn't cleaned. Gave 1 1/2 ml oxytocin at 1120 still hasn't cleaned. Foal up but hasn't nursed yet.

Sora, I thought if the stallion was homozygous then he can only throw that colour??
Cathy, don't worry yet, Maybelline took 7 hours to cleanse! Have you tied a wet towel or similar to it to help with the pull?

CJ,
We had a filly and a colt. The filly is the loud moussy and the colt is the bay. The colt did not get adequate colustrum from mom and needed 1 plasma and he is now fine. The vet at the reproduction clinic said this is a bad year for foals not getting enough. They normally only have 1 or 2 a year. This year they have done 5. All are well. It is so great to see so many caring folks on here taking good care of their equine family. Living with the horse is a gift. Congrats everyone on your new foals!

Glad all is well Todd. Gosh, this is a trying as well as an exciting time! Interesting that the foals needing plasma are up in number. Thank goodness for all the info. here. I had no idea about the lack if immunity in a newborn foal and all that follows if they don't get quality colostrum. I feel like I've had a semester long course in the past month! This is a fabulous site.

You are so right about horses being a gift!

No Emily, but it's okay. I'm more prepared everyday, got my survelance camera and getting some sleep, so it's all good. She was soooo tired for a few days. Today she rebound and wanted to pen the goats again ! What a goof ball! But she's healthy!

I've been reading the posts about the new foals. I'll bet all you new foal owners are all very busy with them! The little stinkers.

OR SO I THOUGHT! Roll out the red carpet-sound the trumpets-CJ has a new foal. Boy or girl? Hell, I don;t know. I thought it was a girl, cause I saw no boy parts, but when it was pooping, I didn't see any girl parts! Talk about feeling like a dummy!

But, some issues. Born about 1:AM. Still wet when I got out to the corral. It has had a lot of trouble nursing. Can't seem to latch on. Does have a sucking reflex (sucked my fingers). But after two hours, I tried to position it. It didn't like me holding it and got antsy, so now Mama is antsy. She started walking around her corral and calling baby, so I had to give it up. I had gotten a little bit of colostrum (very sticky). But that is all.

Baby is now trying to nurse again. Mare is a great mother. But it just can't quite find it.

Mom has not passed placenta yet and it has been 3.5 hrs. I don;t have anyone to help me (except one person who is asleep and afraid of my horse). But she would help me if I needed it. I just don't want to start this out badly.

I was hoping to get by until about 6:00,

YAHOO! The foal just latched onto Mom's teat. No wait, Now it's running around. My gosh, this is nerve wracking! And while Jewel was okay with me messing with the foal at first, she now doesn't trust me because I was trying to hold the foal still long enough to help it nurse and to give an enema-and it struggled and now mom is all wigged out with me. I'm giving them space-but very worried. Should I call the vet now???? Or will it be okay for a few more hours? Baby is tired and sleeping right now.

CJ again....call the vet and let us know...best way is to halter your mare, tie her loosely or have some one hold her and then work with the baby. Very very important if she has not passed placenta to get the vet out emergency...plus the foal has not had adequate antibodies.

As far as a filly or colt...easyiest way is to pick up the tail...no girlie lulu then its a boy...

congrats....Fingers crossed...post soon!

Hi All, sorry I've been baby admiring and had to go back to work..yuck.. CJ, I bred my bay overo mare to a cremello to get the buckskin. If you have a buckskin and breed to a cremello, you will most likely get a Palomino. I spent some time researching genetics before I picked the stallion. Even then, we still only had a 50/50 shot at the Buckskin, but we got it. No color spots though, she's solid even though mom's an Overo and has thrown color in the past.

We video taped the whole birth of our new girl. I spent 5 sleepless nights waiting, I knew she was close, plus she spent 3 nights actually looking, acting and sounding like she was in labor, actually pushing and everything. Found out from the vet that she was "positioning" the foal, getting ready to deliver. New pics coming in a day or so. She's not so ribby looking now, starting to get some milk in her and filling out.

She's a cutie! No name yet, we're working on it!

CJ congrats!!! I would get the vet out if your mare doesn't pass the palcenta soon. They say typically they should pass it in 3 hours, and don't foget to save it for the vet to inspect. Have you tied it up so she doesn't step on it? Has the foal latched on yet? Post pics as soon as you can.

ALL IS WELL NOW. Got a neighbor that is good with horses to come and help, while awaiting vet. She held baby until he calmed down. Mama was just fine with it, so I think my backing off when I did was good, but I was soooo worried.

Poor nurser though. We worked for two hours off and on trying to get baby to know where the teat is, let alone latch on. He nurses for only a mintue or so at a time, but both of them are exhausted!

I tied thin, wet towels, like tea towels, to the dangling cord from mama. Vet came out and gave oxytocin. Placenta was delivered, intact, at about 9:00 AM, so had been in for 8 hours! She had stepped on it before I got to her and broke the cord. It dangled. I forgot to ask the vet about antibiotics. She wasn't as worried about the placenta as she was the baby not nursing. I was pretty darn scared myself.

I am going to give him some seramune after he has a chance to nurse some more and rest. He passed muconeum (sp.?) fine. Now has actual stool. I didn't give an enema.

Mom was exhausted, but was eating when I came into the house, about 10:30 AM.

Thank-you ALL for your support and concerns! I am so relieved it is over-that chapter any way.

CJ - Congratulations !!!! I know you are exhausted - rest and get pictures up!!

BTW - I haven't been able to post for the past week - just way too many things happening - but I've got a pretty little filly born Saturday morning. I am afraid that she will fit in the same category as little Moose does....the dummy foal group! She did the same thing regarding nursing...and still does. She doesn't seem to know instinctively where the teats are..she starts bopping mom with her nose just anywhere on her body, like teats should just be sticking out of mom everywhere!!

She has trouble latching on to them, then once she does if it happens to pop out of her mouth (and it does!) she gets frustrated and starts the process all over again. I was worried at first but somehow she seemed to eventually get enough after trying again and again!

Congratulations CJ, hope everything is going well now. Maybelline was 8 hours passing her placenta, the vet didn't seem too worried.
Hope the little guy is suckling well now and you can get a rest!

Congratulations on your filly too Cyndy, hope she gets the idea soon!!
