My foal was born at 11:30 today and all seemed really well. He nursed, and started having bowel movements. Now there seems to be stringy stuff coming from his rectum. It seems stuck there along with a small amount of stool. Is this normal. I've never seen it before. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Just found this website and its great! Thanks.
Hi just a thought but some foals are born with a high worm dosage? Could it be worms??
