    Cassie, you will get many different answers to your question about letting Suz and bubs out today. Everyone is different in what they think and do and no-one is wrong!

    For my part I believe that if a mare is used to going out and having grass, then it is very important for her digestive system that she continues this, also for her mental happiness and relaxation. Your little fella's back legs will come to no harm from being outside, but to make it easier for him perhaps the best would be say 1 hour in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. If the weather is nice and the ground is dry and you see him laying down and taking frequent rests of his own accord, then he could be left a little longer in the afternoon. The more he can use and walk around on his legs the quicker they will gain strength and 'come up' and Suzie needs her grass, to have a roll and to take her normal exercise. Keeping her stabled, even for 24 hours, may well make her set off at speed tomorrow - not good for small boy on his first time out - and she may be more reluctant to be caught to come in, you know how she likes her out time. Can you put her in a field that does not have Penny and Smartie next door - she will not want them near her foal and if he wanders over near the fence, she might injure him on her rush to 'see off' the others.

    Just the way I would do it if they were mine. [​IMG]

    Sorry forgot to say that if the day is bright and there is not a cold wind, then I would take his rug off for the short time he's outside. Give him the freedom to move around properly without something tight round his shoulders. While they are out, pop in to clean the stable and pile loads of straw in there, so that when he comes in and sinks to the floor for a good sleep, he will be warm and snuggly in the straw - save your rug for the nights when it is colder. (of course the temperature/rugging thing will be up to you as you are the one there!)

    Plus of course we can get pictures - loads of them - of him scampering about outside! [​IMG] [​IMG]

I might try n let them out for a little bit before going to work... It's overcast here so it might be gonna rain... My youngest bro likes the name Riley [​IMG]
