My appy dun had a beautiful colt this morning, but I could have lost both. My equipage went off and when I got to the birthing barn, I found Penny straining and one leg out. I reached in and found the colt's nose was up under the pelvis. By the grace of God I was able to push the foal back in & reach under this nose and reposition his head. Thank goodness for small hands. One leg was still back, but between Penny and me we got him out. He has the longest legs and a wonderful blanket. He is now up and doing fine.
Congratulations on your beautiful new boy!!! I'm so happy everything turned out good for him and your mare
Congratulations on a lovely boy - I agree, our equipage systems pays for itself over and over again each year.

Here he is at 4 hours, not quite unfolded yet. When I entered the stall he trotted right over to me. We really bonded with that difficult birth.

He's really beautiful, congratulations!!

He is gorgeous!! "CONGRATULATIONS!" on a beautiful little man and thank goodness you were able to help get him out safely!

He is just adorable - love the dried off picture - really shows that little spotted appy butt!!

Bet Penny is one proud Momma!!

Hugs to you, to Pappa Sligo, to Momma Penny and a special hug for that precious baby - I can't wait to get there to see him in person!!
