Panda had a colt on Saturday 4/23/11 at 2:30pm. We were celebrating Easter down at Scott’s parent’s house with his sister, brother in law and nephews. Earlier before we left I saw that Panda was dripping milk. I just had a feeling she would be foaling very soon. Scott said she would wait…so we went ahead with our plans.
Luckily I had been watching the webcam closely and also a viewer texted me saying “BABY NOW!” and we dashed to the truck and headed home as fast as the speed limit would allow us. Scotty didn’t even grab his shoes we left in such a hurry. I was driving and went straight to the barn and saw that the foal was out but that the sack was still partially on him. I went and removed it and then stood back. This foal was so strong that he jumped up and was standing within 20 minutes! Woohoo!
