    I could be wrong but if we assume he is bay then that won't make it clear which stallion was the sire?

    The options where a bay pinto or a taffy/silver bay like Suzie wasn't it? So a bay could come from either combination.

    That was my problem with my last foal, she foaled in the evening and the vet said it wasn't necessary so by the time it was obvious that she was in pain he had to return and it was nearly midnight. He wasn't happy about coming back and I had to insist.

    Argh, I have to go and do that whole sleeping thing. Can't have me sleeping through Twinky's birth [​IMG]

    Can't wait to check in tomorrow but before I run off I will once again shamlessly plug my name suggestion:

    "In Conclusion" with the paddock name of Connor [​IMG]

    Yes I have no shame [​IMG] Night all!

    Congrats Cassie and Suzie. What a handsome little boy. I missed it too, but excited to see what happened during the night. We had a seasoned mare foal that fast this year too and they we both just fine. We have never given pain after birth before this year, but one mare had to be checked by vet next day cuz she was still uncomfy and not wanting baby to nurse. She was great after getting some pain meds. So we had pain meds on hand for the last foal to arrive.

    Cant wait to see pics of the little guy.

    Yes jenny I have seen a few but i realy don't think suzie's baby has anything wrong, some boys are just slow. The last dummy foal born here wouldn't stand and could hardely lift his head, he was put to sleep after 3 days.

    HI everyone [​IMG] LOL sorry couldn't get myself away now trying to type this throught half closed eyes LOL

    he is GORGEOUS I love him so much already n so does Suzie, they nicker at each other the whole time so MEGA cute!!!! he is slow to drink, and hasn't got the milk bar situation handled without my help but he has had quite a bit to drink now, so I am going to get some sleep for prob an hour then go back out n get him to drink again, if any of you see him drinking can you let me know please?

    Suzie has really settled down now, thankyou Renee and Karen for the help!!

    I was worried Suzie would need pain meds for a while as she did keep lying down, but him drinking ( I did express a little with the syringes I had on hand ) just to get him started she has really settled down... gave her some mash which she loved and the ivermectin... going to let them rest for a little while and will check on them again... let me know if you see anything wrong or you are concerned,

    really glad Suzie has settled as I was going to call the vet but she is doing heaps better so I am happy for now [​IMG]

    Thankyou all for watching and I'll definitley have to take a peek at the birth SO GLAD some one recorded it!! was so awesome helping her deliver him, was so quick, especially compared to cows LOL

    right off for some sleeping LOL he was shivering so I put the rug on LOL he has a little bit of room to grow into it LOL [​IMG]

    more name suggestions please!!! love Conner... anyone else??

    WOW!! What a difference a half hour can make! Just had to pop out to do my boys and I come back to see Suzie happily looking more comfortable and small son busy butting around at the milk bar. All looking very peaceful and domesticated! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Love his little rug Cassie, think you were wise to put it on with a possible cold night in front of him, especially as he is getting his first drinkies. [​IMG]

    Dont worry if he looks a bit tired when you next take a peek at them, he's had a very busy life in his first few short hours, and as long as he is taking plenty of little drinks, he will be fine!

    Again, many many congratulations my friend, I am absolutely thrilled for you. [​IMG]

    Forgot to add, that if all seems well at your next check - see if you can spot if he has passed his first poo - then I would give the clever Suzie another small feed and a load of hay, and return to your bed for a few hours sleep - that's if you can tear yourself away LOL!!

    Can you get out of work tomorrow??? I think you deserve a day with your wonderful Momma Suz and cute little CONNER at the very least!! [​IMG]
