PostSubject: Foalie pics   May 29th 2008, 10:14 am

Ok here are some more pics taken when they went out today.
My little one is on the mend but in pics has wet bum as i had to bath his back end and legs.
Ive also posted a pic of his mum Zana with her bald face and swollen glands.

Also pics of his half sister(same sire) who was born the night before.Not bad as i saw both foals come into this world,just aswell to as i had to break open the sac on my little fello.

We cant make out if the filly is Red Dun or Dunalino,what you reckon?

Bless her heart, she has HOG JAWs pig Sure hope she does better soon.
I dont think your baby is all that small, Compare his length of leg to this Dams. Not far off on the knees compared to his Dams, And he has all that Chrome!

PS I like your mare better then the Grulla!

I love them both. The colt really doesnt look that small, maybe your just use to having really tall ones. He looks average to me.
I couldnt even begin to guess what color the filly is. Looks like the same as mine whatever color that is.
Poor momma her jaw looks so sore. Now has it gone down some since she foaled at all? I do like your mare.

So cute both of them. cheering He doesn't look that small to me either. My friends down the road had one last year that was so tiny she was no bigger then a dog.. She looked like you could pick her up and put her in your lap.. She is half arab/QH.. riding

Your LOL guy looks like he is doing fine and mums looks to be relieved it's all over and she can get back to normal.. ily

Zanas face hasnt settled down as yet but i reckon it will take a while.She is such a good mare i love her to bits.

My little widget has taken a bad turn and vet back out again,he on antibiotics and some paste for his belly,he has gone from being bound up to overly severe diahorrea.
Poor little guy is having a rough start.Just aswell zana a good mum and lets you get on with it.She trusts me so im lucky.
Im so proud of my Zana.The day she had her foal she didnt want me to leave her,she went nuts when i went to muck out her stable and left her in field,i had to sit with her for hours just so she would graze.Knew something was up.

My friends grulla mare is over foal proud,what do you guys do with mares like that.She will attack you even if you look over her stable door.When i managed to put her out for my friend it was a milatray operation to round her up again.

For starts Leave a break away halter on her. Second A whip or about a 3 foot section of Hose outside her stall door, Its not that your going to beat her, Its the fact she has to remember who, is who. Being proud if fine, I even let mine lay their ears back, BUT that is all. Just a bit of punishment to show her, who is who. Usually one or two smacks and They are like OH YOUR SERIOUS! Have someone hold her while, someone rubs and loves on the foal. She has to get over it period.

Now about your little guy. What is the vet saying? Milk to rich. There is Bowel Sponge, Good Old Pepto, of Carcoal mix. Whats he having you use? Bless his heart! He'll get is all figured out. You know he's more than likely getting handled more now, since he is sick, then if he hadn't been. Remember Popeye was So very sick. And now I call him SNIP SNIP! Little Devil!

I certainly hope he's feeling better. I had one where the antibiotics were giving him the diarrea. Hope thats not the case, but your vet would already have thought of that.

Good ole plain yogurt with live cultures works wonders to get the gut in order.. I have put it in a syringe and given it to them. They like it too.. icecream

I had a mare that was going to kill anyone who got near her with her foal. I had to trick her and let her out of her stall and lock the foal in for the vet to check it out. Strange thing happened when I moved her out of the big barn to the lean too's we have that are open to the outside. She calmed down and could have cared less.. OH, the black colt she had chewed her long black tail off too... lol!

Very cute! Congrats! And the filly looks to me to be a red dun... Does she have a dorsal? what is daddy's color?

And as to the diarrhea... I do what Blue Jay does... But I do mix it with pepto bismol. My filly had a bout of diarrhea this year, but about 3-4 days of Pepto and plain yogurt, twice if not three times a day, cleaned it right up Smile

With grouchy overly foal proud mares... I do things simmilar to what T-J said to do. However none of my own personal mares have ever done this... foal proud yes, but have always welcomed my help in raising their babies lol! But many outside mare's I've helped with have been that way... I would prefer it over rejecting it though! Just keep in mind she's doing her job at protecting her baby from what she feels is a "threat"... take it slow, and prove people are not a threat. Very Happy

He's having a real tough start, isn't he. Poor guy. Does your Vet think it has anything to do with her facial hair loss and swelling? Or just a coincidence?

He had his Ig tested and thats great,higher than normal,vet said Zana has some top notch colostrum.

His white blood cell count higher than normal,vet said he either fighting infection or getting one.Also his kidney levels are very high.Got to keep real close eye on him.Vet also said it could be where he was straining so much the first 24 hours to go to the loo.Not alot they can tell at mo.He back out to do more blood on Monday to see how the levels are.
Funny thing is he is runny around and not deydrated,you would not think anything is wrong with him other than his really wet back end and legs,its mustard tap water coming out.

Widgets bottom jaw is longer than his top,is this normal in foals.My others not been like this,hence the reason why vet said he undershot.

good to hear he passed his IgG Test. Not so good on high white blood count and kidneys.

And I think what you mean by "undershot" is that like we people can have, over bites, under bites, and cross bites?

And if that is what it is... No, not very normal at all... but really depends on how much of an "under bite" he has. Most babies I see, if anything have a little over bite. Hopefully this will not effect his suckling, or his future grazing abilities Smile Let us know how things go!

Poor little dude hasnt much going for him then.

Will see if he can pull through these problems then go from there.Really dont know what to think about his jaw.Thought maybe its cause he suckling but obviously not.Really dont know what to think at this stage.

maybe Urinary tract infection or dehydration if his jaw isn't quite right maybe the vet will give him some fluids and get him going better will be interesting to see how his renal function tests are Monday fingers crossed for good results and maybe just and acute reaction related to the trauma of birth.

Depends on how far the lower jaw sticks out from the upper.. If it's barely noticable likely not a problem. If it's a lot could be. AS far as kidney functions if that is just a little off not usually a problem. What is his potassuim level? Does he look blooted? scratch
