Question in regards to colstrum. We had to drip the baby yesterday and the vet is coming back out today to drip him again then we are taking a blood sample on Friday to make sure all is well. When Dancer was born he dam wouldn't let her drink at first we had a heck of a time getting the baby some milk because it would even drink out of a bottle. Well we ended up having to give to drip her as a foal. Now what are the odds that this mare now with her first foal having not enough colstrum. Now I don't know whether she just didn't have enough or if she leaked alot during foaling but it seems odd that that Chance didn't get enough colstrum. Does any one know if this is genetic? Or just coincedence or possibly just first time mom deal. Has anyone had a mare get better colstrum after they have had their first foal. I am just curious because if she throws nice babies I would like to use her as a broodmare and if she will always have low colstrum then I would have to get the foals tubed in the first 12 hours to avoid this whole process and of course vet bill. I like the colt and the mare is being a very good broodmare and I would like to breed her more but not if we are going to have to invest such a large sum everytime she foals Input anyone?

Bobby,
Do you know if your mare was the first foal from her dam? I am no expert, but i dont think this would be hereditary. It sounds very much as though it may have been because she was a maiden, and if her dam was a maiden too when she was born, it may just be a coincidence. Let us know how your foal goes. Got any pics??

The mares dam was also a maiden. The foal is dueing a extremely well at one month he is 10.1 hh and weighs around 130# and is all legs. I have some pictures of a week after he was born but I need to get updated pictures put on the web. You can see them at www.geocities.com/baskmidnightshadow
