    Udder development?

    Losing this baby was so awful! Don’t blame you at all for not wanting to breed again. It’s heartbreaking to watch the little thing grow for almost a year and then lose it! Thank you for the prayers. Pickles and I appreciate it!

    Udder development?

    Unfortunately my sweet Honey passed away Saturday . I am completely devastated. Poor Pickles has been so sad. I was not prepared to face anything happening to our foal. Thank you for asking. Hope your sweet baby is doing well!

    Udder development?

    We took our new foal to the vet yesterday and he confirmed that she is a dummy foal. Last 24 hrs have been tiring and stressful! Milking and feeding every two hours. Anyone try the Madigan Squeeze on a dummy foal?

    Udder development?

    We have a baby!!!!! Born this morning around 7am. Think it’s a filly. She hasn’t nursed yet. Still wobbly and seems very sleepy. Milked Pickles a bit and bottle fed the first milk. Should I be concerned?

    Unfortunately no my “Pickles” has her own timeframe and I have not a clue! She’s been dripping milk for a week and a half so I thought for sure it would be soon. But still hanging on!

    Udder development?

    Oh my gosh yes! I’ve thought the same thing. If our vet did not confirm her pregnancy sometimes I think I’m crazy!

    I can completely relate! We bought a pregnant mare in October and the owner wasn’t sure how far a long. The mare that was with our mare and supposedly got bred at the same time foaled May 25th. Here we are August 17th with no baby yet! We think it’s just any day now. Your mare sounds like mine...

    Pregnant Mare Question

    Thank you! I had actually forgotten about eliminating grass from her diet! We switched to a low sugar feed and costal hay. Will take off grass completely and will try the yoga mat to ease her discomfort.

    Pregnant Mare Question

    Okay thank you for your response. I’ll check to see what would be the best option for her She is kept in a dry lot with an open barn for shelter. We feed her Nutrena Safe Choice and costal hay. Turn her out to graze pasture grass for a short while in the evenings

    Pregnant Mare Question

    My little mare is heavily pregnant and her feet seem to be sore. Farrier has trimmed her hooves which has helped but it seems it’s uncomfortable for her to walk. We have suspected that she foundered before we brought her last October. Vet has checked her out and ran bloodwork that came back...
