This is an interesting story out of Kentucky... this belgian colt was born with an extra digit. It was surgically removed and the colt is recovering well. We have occasionally seen calves with extra limbs but not foals. ... See MoreSee Less

"Little" mister is out to stretch his legs this morning. He stopped at the scales on the way out and is 133.5 lbs!! Our vet techs are testing his IgG, which we expect to be well above the recommended limit.

We have several other mares ready to foal any time so be on the lookout for foals playing in the paddocks if you are driving by.

At 6 hours old this foal is strong and feisty. He was up and nursing in less than an hour.

The mare's colostrum was excellent (we check on a colostrometer). If a mare doesn't have any/ has poor colostrum we have a small bank of frozen which can be substituted if needed. Colostrum (the thick antibody rich first milk) gives the foal the necessary immunity to carry them through the first 3-4 months while their own immune system gets up and producing antibodies. Foals can absorb the antibodies from colostrum for only 12-16 hours. A foal who doesn't receive adequate colostrum is very susceptible to infections. Even a slight infection can have catastrophic results in these foals.
