Magical World and colt
Magical WorldFebruary 25th, 2020
It's a boy! The first foal of Foal Patrol Season 3 was born last night. Magical World had quite the delivery but both her and her Gun Runner colt are now healthy and doing well. Three Chimneys Farm staff came together to support and assist her foaling in great form. It was touch and go for a bit but this colt is resilient and strong. We will be editing and sharing footage of the birth sometime today or tomorrow.
Due to the colt's positioning during birth, he took some time to stand and take his first steps. His legs are not presenting major issues; however, the front legs are contracted with a lax left hind leg and a wind swept or bent right hind leg. Chris Baker shared that this will normalize and self resolve with time.
Below are a couple videos of the colt standing and taking first steps as well as his effort to find his first meal of colostrum on Magical World.
They will be in this stall for the next few days with intermittent trips to their new outdoor paddock. Stay tuned for more updates!
