Hi all - As you can see under My Star finally foaled - Rascal was born 10 days ago. He was very small but did everything right during those first few hours. He got up right away, nursed, peed and pooped. He seems to be growing - Star is a very attentive mother. He had recently started eating small amounts of hay and may be drinking water. Here is the problem - His urine stream is not particularly strong. Once or twice he has sprayed (maybe did not let down penis?) My friend (he is currently at her barn) feels that he is having problems. I called her vet - who called her back not me and he feels Rascal should be looked at. I am going to call another vet today but hoped you all could give some insight. My previous baby 15 yrs ago was a filly so I am not sure what to expect from this colt. Other than I need to get him home and start handling him daily. Sorry for the long post - Thank you for your help.

Cheryl, it will take a few weeks for it to increase in strength. I know my colt's pee seemed to just pour out for quite a while, without the "force" we normally associate with male horses. But if in doubt, and it will make you feel better, at least give your vet a call.

Hi Paige - You were right - I spent last night with him and observed him urinate 3 times - each stream was firm with no strain. His penis looks normal and he lets down when he goes. I think he is going to be just fine. He is very shy and fiesty and seems to be growing so I am going to pass on the vet for now. Thanks for your input.
