Well Lacrosse gave birth to a healthy strong tall boy just after midnight! At the same time we lost our internet connection! Sorry everyone. We’ll post a video shortly with the birth though.
Reviewing notes from her last foal reminded me that she stalled at this point for a full day before finally foaling in 2008. In 2006 she foaled 6 hours after reaching 350ppm, but that was also later in the year. Based partly on the fact that she’s appearing more relaxed than normal for her, I have a feeling I’ll be in this same spot tomorrow – awaiting the birth.
As usual, Lacrosse has waited until she’s good and ready before presenting us with her last gift. Hopes are high that she’ll bookend her three gorgeous colts with fillies and leave me with a princess to which she can pass down her crown. Currently her milk Ca levels are approaching 350ppm so we expect her to foal in the wee hours of the morning.
