I go with the "1, 2, 3 rule", Foal should be born within an hour after water breaking (all of ours have been born within 20 minutes after water break!), foal should stand and nurse within 2 hours of birth, and by 3 hours the foal should have passed the meconium (first poop) and the mare should have dropped the afterbirth..I've never seen one so young before...is he having trouble nursing or is this just normal?
Congratulations!!!! What a cute colt. Good luck to you all!
