  1. This is Bee-bop. I rescued his dam in October not knowing she was pregnant. He was a lovely April Fool's day surprise. 😉 I am a hunter/jumper/pony hunter person and know very little about this wonderful little world of minis. 32071957_2557218387835662_2361266143374606336_n.mp4

    Feral Rescue in Foal

    Cayuse - When our new barn was finished, we moved the ponies in and it stressed mama out significantly. She had a drastic drop in milk supply and Bee-bop got severely dehydrated and had a severe case of colic with impaction. There were lots of late night vet visits over a period of 4 days. My vet just happened to notice some cloudiness (he had a flashlight) in one of her eyes and did several simple vision tests and she failed all of them. Her hearing is perfect! Bee-bop is thriving and happy as a clam. Now that he lives on our property he is friendly and potentially over socialized. ;-) * Photo of him this morning with my girls (post body clip) and one from last week.

    Update on Georgia (mom): she has substantial blindness in both eyes. Her right side is much worse than her left. We will do more testing in a few days. It is so helpful to know why she acts the way she does. All of her quirks make sense now!

    We have an adorable little colt that was born on Easter/April Fools. Georgia is an amazing mother and had a very easy/uneventful birth. We are calling him Beebop.

    Her shape has changed tremendously during the last week. She is not wide, so assuming baby has gotten into position.

    She is progressing some. Lots of tail rubbing, swishing tail, biting at her sides, and kicking out behind. I will try to post some pictures this evening. Thanks for checking in on us.

    This is from last week. She has dropped quite a bit since then. I will upload a side shot from today in a bit.

    What fabulous suggestions LRMiniatureShetlands. I love your soft approach and cannot wait to put them into practice. We believe our girl is a grand-daughter of Boones Little Buckaroo and has been nothing more than a baby maker her whole life. :-(

    Feral Rescue in Foal

    Thanks for all of your input. Georgia isn't mean at all, just terrified of humans and appears to not have ever been handled. I do spend time with her sitting in her stall almost every day. When I am not able to, the barn manager does. She is located 45 minutes away from me and I have a 2 year old and 4 year old human babies. :-) We bought a new house with land and are in the process of building her a barn. I think once she is at home with constant attention from us, she will start to come around. The vet came out and tranquilized her a few months ago to get her up to date on vaccines, etc. She was able to palpate her and feel the foal. She just started taking treats from me within the last few weeks. I will continue to work with her and hope that in the event she needs help, she will trust me enough to do so... The real question is do I trust myself enough??? :-)
