    Rejected baby

    Thanks so much for all of your help. We are doing great she loves her bottle I have fed her every 2 hours around the clock for the first 2 and a half weeks I found a post on taking a igloo water cooler and adapting it, so I did and put it with her at night. She loves it and I get to sleep win win for me. The mare never would have a thing to do with the foal if she couldn't kick she would just try and lay on her. No more babies for her. The colt could not suck for several hours so I used a syringe to feed her, the vet came out and figured she was a dummy foal he had just read an article on a rebirth process that is suppose to help, I had nothing to loose. And it worked she started to suck within a half hour of the process. Amazing. She is a spit fire and goes every were with me including work. Trying to find her a friend besides me and the dogs. Thanks again for all your help. I will post pics
  2. My mini mare hates her baby, will not let it near her. She is 24 hours old I have been milking the mare and feeding the baby not an easy thing the mare is so not into being a mom when I milk her she will first try and kick me, and when that won't work she just lays on me. My question what is the best formula to put her on my area is very rural and the feed store only has the all milk replacer. I did have the vet come out yesterday and he gave the colt a clean bill of health we spent the entire day off and on trying to get mom to take her and it just is a no go. The colt would be in danger if left with her. No more babies for her!!
