Low Tech mare milker

On the advice of our vet daughter,Martha, we modified a 60cc dosing syringe to function as a mare milker. Simply cut the pointed end off the syringe and reverse the plunger.
Put the flanged end over the mares teat and pull back on the plunger. The milk flows into the syringe.

Use that beer bottle you emptied while waiting for the mare to foal with a lamb's nipple to feed the foal that critical first milk.

Flo's foal is three days old and was turned out for the first time today. Waskilina will go out side tomorrow.

Waltzlina has Donatelli colt

Waltzalina Jet Set/ Haarlem three year year old gave us a tall,fine boned colt yesterday evening. That was the second foal of the day. Both her and Florentina are first time mothers but are handeling mother hood like pros.

We say her start to foal on the foal monotor and were there for the birth. Foals get going in life very quickly and this one was no exception.

The Sandreo/Floristan (still no names for either) is filling out. He has the sleep-nurse thing well under control.

First Foal Ever Arrives at New Perth Farms

New Perth Farms had its first foal on Wednesday, April 26th ... Florentina had a beautiful colt last night by Sandreo ... During the night we were watching on our newly installed "Foal Cam" an agitated Waltzalina, two weeks over due but to our surprize this morning it was Florintina who foaled overnight thus explaining the agitation of Waltzalina ... all's well that ends well!
