Bunny har (äntligen) fölat

Looking for the first meal.

Bunny har varit stor och rund, bäckenbanden som gele, juvret sprängfyllt och i lördags började hon läcka mjölk. Hon har aldrig sett så redo ut och hon började även skicka ett antal tjuvlarm på föllarmet jag använder. Det har hon inte haft för vana tidigare. Men – inget föl syntes till.

Så äntligen föddes Bunny och Peppers son på kvällen 18 juni. En stor kille som påminner mycket om sina helsyskon Mira och Joe. Han var snabbt på fötterna och letade mat. Han är svart utan några vita tecken, med stor sannolikhet även konstantskimmel.

A tired boy some hours after birth.Nu ikväll fick Whizzy komma in till dem i hagen och det verkar gå bra.

He just dropped down on the ground after spending a lot of time trying to find the first food, pooping etc- look how he got his legs.

Bunny has been big and round, the ligaments has been really ready to foal, the udder more than full and she started to leak milk this Saturday. She has never been so ready to foal and even made a few false alarms on the birth-alarm that I use. That isn’t usual for her. But – no foal.

So it felt like finally! when her and Peppers colt was born yesterday evening. He is a big boy that resembles his older brother and sister Mira and Joe. Fast up on his feet and looking for something to eat. He is black without no with but most probably roan.

This evening Whizzy got to join them in the pasture and it seems to work fine.

Not a day old but it was ok for both him and mum that 4 year old David petted him briefly.

It was ok to have Whizzy rather close.
