    Thanks! That's what I figured. I will take some pictures today for you! Most of the ones I have are of her sleeping.

    Shedding Yet?

    My mare who was pregnant at the time started shedding in December! I also have two other geldings that are shedding heavily now. I'm in MI.

    I also thought I'd mention that I noticed tonight baby was only latching on for 10 seconds max, then nudging and pushing her udders before trying to latch on again. Also saw her nibbling on hay and drinking water so I thought that was a good sign! She is very sweet, I was giving her scratches today and she loved it.

    Here is the picture! I still can't hand express any and she's still doing the same thing but she's still super energetic and is urinating clear so I assume she must be getting something! My vet comes out tomorrow, I will mention it to her .

    Thats reassuring mad max, thank you! My filly had to have a feeding tube for 24 hours, too. That and the plasma transfusions she got made her full of life! She is very active now.

    Okay thank you! I will take a picture today. I'm not super concerned because she is very active, I've been watching her run around all morning.

    Hi all, quick question. I noticed Hope last night trying to nurse for about an hour and a half straight. She just kept switching side and doing it again. She didn't seem like she was getting any, so I went in and made sure she was latching on, and she was. Then I looked at the mare's bag and it seemed almost flat, and I couldn't hand express any out. Is that normal? She's doing the same thing this morning. Doesn't seem lethargic so I assume she must be getting something, it just seemed odd to me.

    She is much stronger after the feeding tube and plasma transfusions. She was running around and bucking on her stall. She has finally started to nurse and they took her feeding tube off this morning and are going to monitor her closely.

    Here are some photos. Angel is a really patient, loving mom. She is doing great, had to be sedated earlier while they were working on her filly, but other than that she has had no problems. We have named the filly Hope.

    Sorry forgot to update. Had to take filly up to the state universitys clinic as she still was unable to latch on and was getting weaker by this morning. I stayed up all night with her and syringe fed her. She got put on antibiotics and a feeding tube, and now she is feeling a little stronger. She also is getting plasma transfusions. She is feeling better but not out of the woods yet.

    You were spot on MMM! She foaled last night at 11:30pm. It is a chestnut pinto filly! Very pretty! I will post pictures later. Foal was coming out sideways but I fixed that and it was otherwise an easy birth. She had a lot of trouble finding the milk bar, had to get vet out and eventually got colostrum in her. She is a little undercooked for me and the vet's liking. We will be doing a IgG test on her at about 18 hours and hopefully good results.

    Wow, thanks! I saw her laying down on the camera a little while ago, she hasn't laid down practically since she was bred!

    Milk was white tonight, looked like cow's milk. She's at 298 today. Included belly pictures and an udder pic . Looks like her teats are almost pointing straight down.
