A Beautiful Buckskin Filly!!! I know these photos are a bit dark but they are what we have until tomorrow when they go outside... She is a precious little angel... This one will not be for sale... she is staying right here with us http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    A big congratulations on both of your new arrivals! They are simply gorgeous http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif and both definitely worth the long wait. I'd love to come and see them if my %@$# mare ever foals.

    Very sad update... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif The filly was born strong and healthy up and nursed quickly... However the dam was very colicky shortly after. Long story and day but we finally decided to let her go as she was in so much pain, and from what our vet said was a ruptured bowl which was causing internal bleeding. I am completly a mess while I am writing this. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif I felt so bad for her. We kept her going as long as we could to get the Colostrum to the foal but we could see her pain was so bad that we let her head over to the other side. She was such a great mom to all the foals we had from her and she will be greatly missed.

    Now if anyone has notes/pointers on raising an Orphan we would love any and all help... You can e-mail us at postmaster@blazingcoloursfarm.com

    Rest In Peace Joey http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    I am sorry to hear that!

    I have had two orphan foals. Both were very good about learning to drink from a bucket and it was simply a matter of giving them a fresh bucket every four hours. I had a pony live with them until they were old enough to go out with the mares (about 3 months of age).

    First of all, I am very sorry for your loss.

    Secondly, will the other mare take on 2???

    Thirdly, I'm sure Fred would be a good resource for orphan stuff.

    Most people who go around fanning the flames of crises are themselves the problem.

    Silly Mommy... I've been thinking about your number two ever since I read this. I have a mare that should be foaling any time now (I know, famous last words but she started waxing almost 2 weeks ago and started dripping milk yesterday). How tough would it be to have two foals in the stall at birth time? Has anybody ever done this? The fluid and placenta could be rubbed on the second foal as well. She did allow a second foal to nurse off of her a couple of years ago - not intentionally. Spot's filly was weaned a couple of months before my colt and we left her with Auntie Liz and Vegas. She started nursing off my mare and the mare didn't care. I don't know how big a difference it made that the mare knew the filly well. This mare LOVES being a mom. And Faiths Cremellow is only about 10 minutes away from me.

    Anyway, just a thought, can anyone shed any light on whether it's a good one or not?
