New Routine!

June 13th, 2018

Via Veneto18 and Rosie are enjoying their new routine spending very little time in the stall.  They are out in the paddock all night and come into the stall at around 6:30am for a couple hours.  All is well!

Just Curious!

June 6th, 2018

Here is a quick update on "Baby VV" from Double Diamond Farm:

Around the barn one of her nicknames is "Lightning" because she is Always zipping around in her paddock.

She is eating grain with her mother and she’s grazing out in the field on grass and she does eat hay.

Even though foals have teeth they will still continue to nurse off their mothers until they are weaned around four or five months.

She loves to be scratched.

The Big Snuggle...

May 20th, 2018

Rosie and Via Veneto18 seem to spend a lot of time grooming each other while they're in the stall.  When we at Foal Patrol see it on the livestream, we like to think of it as snugglingsmiley.  Equine specialists will tell you that one of the most common social behaviors of horses is mutual grooming.  Some studies have revealed that grooming reaffirms the bond between horses, reduces social tension within the group and in some cases "feel good" hormones are increased in horses that undergo mutual grooming sessions.  In case you've missed it on the livestream, here's a screen capture of a recent snuggling / grooming session!
