I didn't ask her... I'm not sure if it goes to her phone, or her computer, or both, but I know she's been in the barn not to the computer yet (but messages may go to her phone, too, not sure).
She said Wild Thunder foaled standing up and it is neat to see the pictures of that!!!!!!!! We think one of our mares here may have. She got up and down and we ran back to the barn and by the time we got there (less than one minute), the foal was out and we suspect she never laid out but had him standing, too!
And... Looks like Wild Thunder's baby is already nursing by itself
Wild Thunder did this last year, but finally DID lay down.......not this year
It's a perlino pinto filly, Wild Thunder must be a gentic smokey black (her dam is buckskin so she carries dilute, but I never had her tested) Bandito the fillies sire is a buckskin pinto. She could possibly be palomino, but at this time eyes are SKY blue, and pink skin all over.
OK, sorry about the quad and all the words on it, I'll see about fixing that on next trip to the barn, it's new and I don't know how to use it
as lightning got two of my switcher boxes
onto what Jill said about the possiblity of another one.......
On Channel 2 (top right) is a mare that is owned by some friends of mine, she's lived here for two years, as they are showing modern shetlands now, and no nice mini stallion to bred her to, so she boards and breds and foaled out last year here as well......She's a heck of a hard keeper of a mare, and while she doesn't look big, she's got a little baby belly for her normal weight.
Reason she is up in that foaling stall, is she was up in a stall across the aisle as I put her in to eat at night away from the other mares, after Wild Thunder foaled, after placenta passed, cord cut, hay down ext.......I went out to get the fork, walked by Tori's stall and hear water (like peeing sound)........turned on the lights in her stall and she was laying down and yes fluid had come out of her; I could have SWORE whitish like anomitic fluid, but it's early am as well and maybe she's just being silly and pee'd laying down, I don't know. I switched her across the ailse to the foaling/camera stalls and thought ya she'll get down and do something but nothing.......She's not dilated enough for me to go in and check; but nothing when I look inside; and she's not contracting at all, cares more about eating hay.......so While I want the cam to stay on Wild Thunder to watch her with cramps, I want it on Tori as well to see if something happens at all....so we wait.
AHHH darnit! I have never seen a birth so was upset when it ended before she was born
Can someone explain to me what Erica is doing? I don't know anything about this process and am interested in learning. Is she pulling or just guiding? Maybe we can start an educational thread at some point on the birthing process with pictures and videos
