Vaulcluse and filly have clear bill of health
VaulcluseMarch 25th, 2020
Vaulcluse and filly are having a great first morning together. They were both checked out by a veternarian and given the all clear. The filly received plasma via IV which will help to protect her immunity in the early days. The vet then took a sample of blood to make sure she is healthy inside as well as out. Like human babies, the foals cannot communicate if anything doesn’t feel right, so we have to look at their blood work to stay on top of things. If something is wrong, they can go down hill in a hurry, so we always take every precaution to stay one step ahead.
After a physical examination, the foal was found to have a slightly contracted hind ankle, so she will be getting a bandage on it later this morning.
The farm staff hopes Vaulcluse'20 will be able to nurse from her mom by this afternoon. Stay tuned!
