i had a dreadful time not getting into the discussion about the birth of the foal
THEY WERE DISCUSSING LAST NIGHT ON OUR DISCUSSION BOARD.
I SAW ONLY ONE PHOTO-- AND I COULD TELL...TROUBLE FOR THAT  FOAL... MARE STANDING QUIETLY  WHILE THE  NEWBORN FOAL  ONE HOUR OLD NUZZLED AROUND TRYING TO FIND THE MILK DEPARTMENT... AND 6 PEOPLE-- WITH THINGS LIKE STETHOSCOPES STOOD AROUND...  IT WOUL D ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE PEOPLE WOUDL DECIDE  THE FOAL NEEDED HELP.... WHEN THE BEST HELP THEY COULD HAVE BEEN WAS TO GO FO COFFEE AND LEAVE THE MOTHER TO DEAL...NEXT I HEAR-- VIA THE CONVERSATIONS-- THEY HAVE DECIDED THE FOAL NEEDS TO BE TUBED AND THE MARE IS UPSET BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE FOA L ON THE GROUND...
IF THAT WAS MY FOAL- AND I WAS THERE I WOULD HAVE TOLD THEM  WHERE TO PUT THAT TUBE..  IF THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE TEACHING IN THAT VET SCHOOL  I AM TOTALLY SHOCKED.  I WAS ANGRY IT WAS PRESENTED AS HELPING THE MALNURISHED FOAL--  ONE HOUR OLD... IT WAS STANDING AND TRYING... AND A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WANTED TO SHOVE THE TUBE UP HIS NOSE... I WAS ANGRY- THAT CERTAINLY IS NOT NORMAL--IT IS HOWEVER A BILLABLE SERVICE.
I BETTER QUIT THERE...
ALL THIS BECAUSE NOEL 'S PROGRESS IS MOVING SLOWLY-  I DO THINK IT MAY BE TODAY... SHE IS DOING SOME NESTING.. NOT SPECTACULARLY  BUT SOME.. AND THE RATE AT WHICH SHE DROPPED THE LAST LITTER WE DON'T DARE LEAVE HER..

THE KITCHEN  IS FULL FO LAUGHING PEOPLE-- SO I WANT TO GO JOIN THE FUN

  1. SO GLAD YOU WEIGHED IN ON THIS CARLENE I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT HORSES SO WAS NOT SURE IF MY FRUSTRATION WITH THE TREATMENT OF THE MARE AND COLT WAS VALID. I WAS SHOUTING AT THE SCREEN TO JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE.

    THE VETS AND THEIR TREATMENT JUST SEEMED SO INTRUSIVE, BUT WHAT DO I KNOW? I'M KINDA GLAD TO KNOW THAT I WASN'T JUST BEING AN UNEDUCATED EMOTIONAL WOMYN. HAH!

    STILL, IT WAS VERY WONDERFUL TO SEE NEW LIFE COMING INTO THIS WORLD. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO TO GIVE YOUR DOGS A GOOD BIRTHING EXPERIENCE, BY LETTING THEM BE IN CHARGE.

    I KNOW DOGS ARE NOT LIKE PEOPLE, BUT I GAVE BIRTH AT HOME BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT A BUNCH OF DOCTORS AND NURSES POKING ME AND DOING SHIT THAT DIDN'T NEED TO BE DONE.

    MY (HUMAN) MIDWIVES WERE WONDERFUL AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU, (EARLENE AND ALL), LET THE MAMA DICTATE THE LEVEL OF HELP AND THE PACE OF HER WHELPING.

    LOOKING FORWARD TO NOEL'S WHELPING. :-)
