My mare foaled about 40 minutes ago. The bag broke and I felt for legs and head- found the two legs. Then the head with a third leg were presented and I tried to push it back in before it got too far- I would like to think that helped, but I don't know- we got the baby out and all is ok. The baby was kind of stuck. I am still shaking. The placenta came out right away, too. Thank goodness for my Equipage and my husband! Without both, we may have had a different outcome.

Baby is trying to nurse but hasn't figured it out yet.

It is a colt- the Ring Test was right again! Go figure! lol

Actaully, while the process was going on, my mind kept racing through different posts here on LB- I think all of you saved our foal, too
Thank you.

I'm so glad you got him out.

It really does help when you're in that situation, to go back through others' similar problems while you're waiting for the vet, because every minute counts when a baby's stuck.

CONGRATULATIONS and kudos for keeping cool and saving both your mare and foal!

Congratulations.

We also had the head and one leg "presentation".

Couldn't push the baby back till Mama stood up and then the foal was easier to repostion.

Luckily I was able to feel the other front leg bent back and put my finger behind the bent knee and "flicked: the leg forward.

Very scary stuff.
