A new baby at our house...and it nickers!
Look at that fifth photo down, and how big he is compared to his mom. Ouch!!
She didn't want to get up for a good 45 minutes afterwards. She started cramping, but luckily the neighbors, who raise paints, had IV Banamine on hand. Not long after she had a dose, she was on her feet and we were able to take her and the baby up to barn because--despite that pretty sunshine--it was c-c-cold, and the foal was shaking.
In the last photo, he's gotten himself dead-ended in a corner and has no idea how to go in reverse. :)
Isn't he colorful? What do you think would be a good name?
if you are seeing this on Facebook, I'd already posted a few photos there. This is coming from my All Creatures Great and Small blog, at http://roxannerustand/blogspot.com. Come on over and say Howdy!
