Between 9:30 and 10:00 pm tonight Stacy gave foal to a beautiful bay filly. I checked at 9:30 and she was just laying there resting. At 10 pm Gerald and I went to move her into the barn because of the storms coming. There the filly was still half in the bag sitting up wondering what to do next. She was up before Mom. She did get a little help, she wanted to get moving. When Stacy got up I led her to the barn and Gerald carried the filly. He thought that she was around 80 pounds. Good thing he didn't have to go far. Stacy cleaned out by 10:30 and the baby is still trying to latch on. She is hungry
