    Here are my two babies from 2012.

    Merlin was born on the 16th May, luckily his mare was induced and my vet was present as he was a dummy foal. After lots (and lots) of TLC and plenty of encouragement from the "Aunties" here we managed to sort him out.

    At 2 days old

    Then on the 6th of June (Matteo's B'day) Arthur was born and yet again his mum Odette did it all alone with no warning signs. [​IMG]

    Renee, both your babies are adorable. Sorry to be so uneducated but what is a dummy foal?

    No problem this thread is here to help and educate. Foals suffering from this syndrome behave abnormally for a number of reasons. One of the most common is lack of oxygen due to the premature rupturing of the umbilical cord (red bag) but it can also be due to to dystocia, septicemia or low glucose levels.

    A Dummy Foal with mild symptoms will lack the foal sucking response and may be disorientated and irritable. It may wander aimlessly around the stall, not appearing to know where it is or what it should be doing.

    One with more severe symptoms which is what my foal had is that they may have seizures or even become comatose which believe me was very frightening. In either case, treatment should be stated immediately. Waiting and expecting it to improve without treatment will probably result in the loss of the foal.

    Many Dummy Foals will return to normal within a few days of treatment which usually includes giving the foal glucose, oxygen and oral or intravenous nutrition ie. milking mum and feeding the foal.

    As you can see with my little man he turned out just fine after just 4 days of constant help with feeding and keeping him warm. The only down side is that he is a little over confident with people as we bonded so much in his first days. I tried to keep to as little contact as possible but it is hard when you are feeding them and lets face it they are just soooo cute, his mum seemed to understand and was totally fine about me milking her to feed her baby.

    I hope that helps.

    Oh Renee, I remember so well how we all crossed our fingers and held our breaths for Britt as she got closer to foaling and then when little Merlin was safely delivered, there followed the long and exhausting hours and days (and our prayers) as you fought to keep him going and to get him to survive, both for his sake and that of Britt's. You were amazing and the fact that Britt, at last, had a baby to love was entirely down to your efforts.

    Thank you for posting the pictures of Merlin and Arthur, great to see them again and you managed to include little Alby and sweet Izzy too - brilliant! [​IMG]

    I guess I'd better post my first little guy born this year on Mar. 11 at 8am. Mom finished breakfast and dropped immediately to foal. I just about missed it, but nope I caught her pushing on cam and ran out to videotape it all. By his cannon bone measurements he is gonna be a little guy (about 32 inches tall).

    Wow Amanda with a quick glance at his color I thought I must have already posted to this thread with my filly until I noticed his star! My mare and yours must have conspired to be sneaky; my mare did nearly the same thing as yours. When I left her she was quietly hoovering her dinner but when I checked on her 45 min later her dinner was all gone and baby was partway out! [​IMG]

    Here's Willow and proud mama Charm [​IMG]

    Here's MMM Designs Roll Of The Dice, barn name Dice, born on March 25 at a whopping 354 days gestation. He is a silver(smokey?) black pinto with two crystal blue eyes.

    Dam is 30" and sire is 30 1/2". His cannon length is 8 3/4", making his maturity height between 32-34".

    First pic morning after he was born and second pic is when he is 5 days old.
