Dani nobley giving up his sleep to supervise the proceedings
This way to the milk bar
a good bath
The presentation wasn't initial good but as i phoned the vet, Charles managed to locate the other foot and nose at about knee level, so embarrassingly, I was able to report to the poor man that I had just woken up that "ah hem there seems to be a foal on the monitor now"...........perhaps we should invest in one of those new things - mobile phones I believe they are called! He was very charming though and will call on his rounds to check the foal later today.
The elegant filly was up and sucking in no time at all and Diva was grateful for a small warm mash that gave her more strength to re wash her new foal. We went to bed by at least five o'clock and i must say i slept in until 7.30 but Charles got up at 5.30 to exercise Dani who reported to be "puffed up" and walking out like a racehorse - and not a car on the road.........I wonder why?!
