well theres been no change on milk strips until last night when ph was still very high but calcium was between 100 and 250. she was happy as anything in her stable. This was 9pm. I went back up at 12.30 and there was WAX!! but she was very happy and quite. So I went back up at 3am... to find a bloody foal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had to have vet out this am as by 8am she still hadnt cleansed. Gave her oxytocin and got everything out. One hornm was very funny and manky with funny growth/abcess type things on it, vet said sh'd never seen anything like it before and that the foal was lucky to be alive let alone healthy!!! Cant beleive i missed it though http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Do you have no clues to the sire at all? Nice strong looking colt you have there, glad all went well for you all.

my feeling and thoughts were a a coloured cob... but looking at him he dosnt look cobby and is too fine. Am chuffed to bits and cant beleive how quickly she got on withit in the end!!!

Whizz..... wine open lol

Lovely foal - what a nice surprise! Lucky to not know what he's by & get such a beautifully marked coloured.

Have to agree milk test strips are not as reliable as watching for the other signs & ultimately a foaling alarm.

Isn't he lovely? Has a very wise expression like he's been here before!

Gosh what a lovely surprise considering you didnt know what to expect. He looks very healthy and mum is obviously doing a good job with him
