Miss Chapin and her Oscar Performance colt are happy and healthy at Mill Ridge Farm! Farm staff determined Miss Chapin was producing enough milk to sustain this growing little guy, so his feeding tube has been removed. Here he is enjoying the paddock with mom.

Hi Foal Patrol fans,

We apologize, Miss Chapin's birth video is not available at this time due to technical issues. We are working to correct the problem and will provide an update when we have more information. Thank you for your patience!

Miss Chapin is NI Positive

On February 26 at 2:23AM, Miss Chapin gave birth to a lovely Oscar Performance colt weighing in at 110lbs! This spunky little guy is doing great and will have the feeding tube removed as soon as the farm is confident that Miss Chapin is producing enough milk to sustain our new guy.

Miss Chapin was Neonatal Isoerthrolysis (NI) positive which means that we needed to muzzle and tube feed her colt until the Jaundice Foal Agglutination (JFA) test comes back at a desirable level or the foal’s gut closes. This usually happens within 36-48 hours. Attached is an article written by Mill Ridge's very own Dr. Jackie Snyder that gives a more in depth description of Neonatal Isoerthrolysis. Stay tuned for more foal updates as mom and baby begin to venture outside!
