    Oopsie, I think you are doing all the right things, and it sounds like he is making some progress. I've been there, and I know how stressed and exhausted you must be. Jingling for continued progress.

    It sounds like he's made significant progress and really wants to live -- don't give up on him! I'll bet in a few days he'll be romping around -- jingles and prayers from Alabama!

    Oopsie, sending many, many jingles! I'm still hopin he'll pull through. You are definitely doing all the right things.

    What about "Dedication" for a name?

    Sounds like he is getting stronger and stronger, sending LOTS of jingles. When he starts getting up on his own and nursing you can always give your mare Domperidone to increase her lactation as well as him nursing off her frequently will really help. Jingling like crazy that he is getting up unassisted soon, he seems like a fighter!

    I worked at a Standardbred breeding facility, and it was common practice to mix colostrum and a bag of plasma in a bottle for the foals first meal. Never ever had issues with low igG's and we foaled out 150 a season.

    5:30 D-day drank 11 oz of mare replacement milk standing up! DH and I are doing this together (just like we did with our human babies)... ah the memories.

    Anyway, Didn't take nearly anything to get him up this time. Getting stronger in the back end. Walked around a bit then he had to poop (first one since his enema). Will need to do another enema, poor poos were hard, I had to "assist" in the process. Temp looks good still. Talkative too.

    I am hoping that with all of the positive thoughts you all have pass his way and all of the intervention that if he gains control of his back legs (and yes, his hind tendons are a little lax, rocking back slightly on his pasterns, which is normal), but he does have the understanding of how to pick up the toe, pull leg up and reach. He is just wobbly. Each time he stands his brain connection is getting the message!

    Thanks again. I am going to nap for an hour or so, mix more replacer (says you can't let it sit for longer than 2 hours). UGH

    This is such good news!! The improvement is amazing in such a short time

    Can you milk the mare on any sort of regular basis to get her production up and also to not have to use so much replacer? Just wondering if that's an option for you.

    How about "Determination" for a name?

    http://www.fairviewhorsecenter.com/breeding.html scroll to the bottom and read how to raise orphans and you will find info on making an igloo for the foal to nurse without you having to be there......

    Didn't read the whole thread but did they rule out white muscle?
