That’s good. Hope it’s just a belly ache from the fresh spring grass.

Oh, I hope it's not too serious and Bird Town recovers soon! Glad they were on it quickly.

Oh no! There's been too much heartache watching these mares and foals this season. The filly who was born the same night as La Verdad's filly died, then Via Veneto died and now her foal has a big bandage wrapped around her neck. The California Chrome x Colerful Bride filly lost an eye. And now this with Bird Town. I hope with all my heart that she's ok. Please be ok, Birdy. Sigh.

Bird Town and her foal are back in their stall!

so glad whatever ailed her appears to have passed and she is no longer in distress! it's amazing how attached you can become to them from afar.

edited to add photo from the May 15th blog post of bird town covering up her foal https://foalpatrol.com/horses/bird-town/blog (there's a second photo but it's too large to load easily)

Awww, that photo of Bird Town covering up her foal is about the most heartwarming thing I've seen in way too long. She is such a wonderful mare, and I'm glad she's back in her stall doing ok.

Oh thank goodness, I was helping wrangle kids & ponies at a horse show this morning & was afraid I'd come home to news I didn't want to see. Sooooo glad she's okay and they're back home. <3

American Pharoah-Momentary Magic filly. This one’s value has definitely gone up since her dam is a half sister to the dam of Justify.

From the Foal Patrol blog for Bird Town, regarding last night:

All Is Well...
May 20th, 2018
Late last night, the brood mare manager at Gainesway noticed Bird Town seemed to be uncomfortable and just wasn’t acting like the Bird Town they know.

As a precautionary measure, the decision was made to take her to the clinic to be examined by a veterinarian.

As it turned out, Bird Town had a mild case of colic which was treated immediately and she was brought back to the barn within hours.

Colic is very common in horses. In layman’s terms, colic is pain in a horse’s stomach. If not treated quickly and correctly, colic can lead to serious illness and can possibly be fatal.

For 80% of colic there is no known root cause and colic symptoms may vary.

Thanks to a very caring and attentive barn staff, Bird Town is back in her stall watching over her beautiful filly.
