It started raining again so we both left, me to watch the monitor to make sure he stands and nurses and Karin to bed. Lucky Karin! He stood at 40 minutes but Ella had laid down again so I had to go back up to the barn in the rain to ask Ella to stand while he searched for the milk bar. He is so tall that it took until 11:42 pm for him to finally latch on.
He is shockingly filled out and I can't get over his tail. I think this is the longest thickest tail we have ever seen on a newborn colt.
