New Schedule, New Friends!

Bird Town
May 22nd, 2018

Bird Town and her filly are on a new schedule and it looks like they're making new friends.  Her new schedule:  out all night; in at 7a and back out at 2p.  And below is a photo of her new friend Cho Cho Cat!

All Is Well...

Late last night, the broodmare manager at Gainesway noticed Bird Town seemed to be uncomfortable and just wasn’t acting like the Bird Town they know.

As a precautionary measure, the decision was made to take her to the clinic to be examined by a veterinarian.

As it turned out, Bird Town had a mild case of colic which was treated immediately and she was brought back to the barn within hours.

Colic is very common in horses.   In layman’s terms, colic is pain in a horse’s stomach. If not treated quickly and correctly, colic can lead to serious illness and can possibly be fatal. 

For 80% of colic there is no known root cause and colic symptoms may vary.

Thanks to a very caring and attentive barn staff, Bird Town is back in her stall watching over her beautiful filly.

Bird Town Cover Up!

We've seen this so many times on the Foal Patrol live feed, we had to share it with Foal Patrol fans who might have missed it...Bird Town loves to cover up her filly with hay in the stall.  Maybe she's hiding her?  Maybe she's just having fun?  Maybe she knows she's entertaining us?  Some horse experts say mares will instinctively hide their foals in an effort to keep them from predators.  So cute....
