Silver Colors delivered a colt at Gainesway Farm early this morning, Sunday, April 28th. With the delivery being three weeks early, the farm staff had some concerns during the birth. In order to ensure everyone was healthy and safe, they turned off the cameras last night. Mom and foal needed some time to recover, but they are both doing pretty well now.
Neil Howard, General Manager at Gainesway shared that following the foaling, the colt was found to have a couple broken ribs. They will restrict the foal's turnout to the stall for the next two weeks to allow the ribs to heal. The colt will be checked and examined later on to confirm the ribs are healing well.
Silver Colors19 is settling in well to life at the farm and the Gainesway farm staff will continue to keep a close eye on him. Here is a image of him nursing!
