Mom is willing even though shes a maiden, baby has good suck reflex but just doesnt get it and it frustrates mama to no end. We tried to milk some milk off the mom but only got a bit enough to put milk on her bag he is all over the bag but wont latch, what now. We are coming up on 3 hours. I called vet new flunky on and regular vet wont be there until 8. This vet said well you have up to 12 hours so call at 8.I get the feeling he just didnt want to come out. He wont have a job long I dont think. This is our first maiden and we have now left them alone for the moment to try to figure this out but I am nervous as so far hes very stong but I know he needs the collostrum. Any ideas? Hes not a dummy hes only looking under mom for the milk bar and he was on his feet in 10 minutes. He isnt cold at least hes not shivering but mom doesnt want his blanket on was pulling him around by it. Any suggestions welcomed. Oh and its a colt. Pictures will follow when Im sure hes going to be OK.
