    I know it has been mentioned already, but bedding can be a huge issue for clumsy foals. Straw on rubber mats is very slippery, in fact almost anything on mats is slippery. A bit of sand on the mats really improves traction.

    Can he stand if you "help" him some? It sounds like he is getting stronger and usually they will learn fairly quickly how to compensate for their weakness.

    oppsie--major jingles for your sweet boy!! It sounds like you're doing everything you possibly can (and lucky for him that you initially got there when you did!), let's hope that the collective "COTH well-wishing team" will help him rally and stand on his own. At least things seem to be going in the right direction!

    Please keep us posted...

    One more thing.....Once he is 24 hours old, if he is still good and strong, healthy and "normal", you may have to let him get somewhat hungry to motivate him to try a little harder to figure out this getting up thing I have found foals can get pretty fond of having their meals hand delivered. Letting them get a bit hungry tends to get them on their feet. Then, once he is up he may be reluctant to lay back down so you will have to monitor that as well. Ahh, the joys of foaling

    Jingling for your boy too! Hopefully it will just be a few days and he will be hopping up on his own. My mare also foaled last night and I got a lovely chestnut filly. Trying to catch up on some sleep today.

    Jingles and prayers for your little guy. I know he'll make it and be just fine! I had to help one get up for about 3 days and last year he was a Zone Pregreen Champion. Keeping yours in my thoughts....

    I had one years ago that couldn't get up on his own for a few weeks. He wiggled around on the ground so much that he gave himself wounds on his hocks that had to be treated and pressure bandaged. We found out three years later when he was coming up sore after a strong work in race training that he had a healed pelvic fracture that he must have gotten being born. If I had one who lingered for more than a week or so I would xray the pelvis just in case.

    I think the poor woman most likely has a lot more on her mind right now than COTH & pictures.

    Thanks for all the jingles. I think at this point it is no longer in my hands but in D-Days and whatever higher powers that be.

    All day he seemed to be improving. Was working hard at standing, has the reflex and understanding to walk, just can't coordinate it. iGg was ZILTCH. The vets tubed him with plasma, we gave him several bottles of plasma and still it is ZILTCH.

    We ended up doing a transfusion tonight and will see what the morning brings. He is on heavy duty antibiotics to help prevent sepsis. He now ha pressure sores on both sides of his hips which are being medicated. He is DESPIRATE to get up and I see the scratch marks all over the stall floor where he has drug himself in attempts to pull up.

    We strpped the stall today and placed a deep bedding of shavings and then straw on top of that. Nice and dry, less slippery. He is getting a lot of shavings in his mouth. Before I give him his bottle, I have to clean out his mouth.

    He is now 30 hours old. We will see what the morning brings. I have 2-3 feedings to do till then. I am scared to think that I will have to do it, but perhaps D-Day wasn't meant to be
