Could she be having some sort of post-foaling cramps? That would possibly make her flinch.


That's what I thought when I was watching it, especially since no one intervened. It didn't seem to be directed toward her foal.

I was watching them early this morning before they went out. No issues, getting on just fine. Maria acting like an old pro.

Hard to know what to expect with a maiden mare, but glad all is well with Maria and the baby.

Such good news. I just popped over to Foal Patrol and got a good look at the baby for the first time. She's stout for a filly, with a big butt end, lol. Mom seems much, much more comfortable than she did last night. I guess folks were right that SCM was probably cramping during those first hours after foaling.

More than likely. Sometimes they will give a shot to help them- guess they felt it wasnt bad enough to warrant that.

He's a good-looking colt. I love his wide blaze. Will be such fun for you at work when you get there.
