    Cool Colt home now...new video...

    My (maiden) Calido I mare...bred to All the Gold is at 333 days. Every little bite of the belly...rub of the tail...I think this is it. I am not able to consistantly express fluid...a few days ago I got pee colored, salty secretions...now nothing. What do you think?

    I'd start keeping a close eye on her. My maiden didn't have much in the way of milk. She foaled at 332 days. Is she waxing at all? Tail head relaxed. Off her feed?

    If you know her well, you will probably know when she's about to foal.

    Keep trying to express a few drops of mild and watch for the color and taste change. My mares milk changed 12 hours before foaling. It got thicker and sweeter. Of course, I didn't let anyone in my household in on the fact that I was tasting the milk. LOL

    She is a very pretty mare.

    Tx for compliment of the mare...she is a sweet heart...

    Our colt came at 4:20 this morning. I was sleeping in the aisle of the barn so saw the whole thing. Everything went great.

    However, he tried but failed to stand after 2 hours. I called the vet. He said he needed to come out and see him.

    My groom and I picked him up...after about 10 minutes of support from us he was able to stand and walk around on his own...did nurse.

    When the vet got there...he was by now 4 hours old. Vet thought he was still weak and should be more active. Also, Mom is a maiden mare and didn't have much milk. Therefore, vet wanted him to go to the clinic.

    We loaded up Mom and colt and took them down there. They sedated him...drew blood cultures, gave antibiotics and IV fluids.

    The CBC looked fine, the placenta looked good, eyes are bright, mucus membranes pink. The vet thinks it is a mild case of fetal maladjustment syndrome. Thinks with supplemental fluid, milk and a transfusion of plasma he will be OK...

    Please ... jingles our way...

    He is a deep smokey grey. I am hoping he will dapple out like his mom.
