Nothing like a new baby.I raise colts and have for more years than I care to admit.Every new crop seems to be cuter than the last. You know how that goes.Anyhow, I had a stud once that stole a colt from it`s mom and starved the colt. He would not let the mare nurse the colt. Luckily we caught him in time and moved him to another pasture. Mother and baby did fine after we got him moved. On the other hand, we have had studs that pay absolutely no attention to the colts. You can just never tell. My experience has been to just keep him out and you don`t have to worry about any of those problems.

Congrats Dale Ann. I love paints. We have a black/whit/chesnut mare. She's beautiful. Anyways, on our foal I used a cob/yearling size, i've also heard you can use a halter for a mini horse and it would work. good luck, can't wait to see pictures.

Where have you been? I had a notion you had sailed to close to the edge and dropped off. Good to know you're still around.

I'm happy as all get out over your new multi-colored bi-eyed filly.

Now, keep the stallion way from the new foal. nuff said.

Good luck with it........gfp
