Presenting Fiero and Gacela

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 1 april 2015 23:40

My two new little new lifes are killing me softly. One because he is adorable and just the perfect mini-golden Donoso and my heart skips a beat when I see him. And the other because she was born premature and is now in intesive care in hospital and it's a critical situation for her. Gacela was born at 21.20 and I was there to deliver her, I got the feeling very quickly she was weak so I gave her milk and massaged her to dry. I felt she would definitely be too weak to stand up so I called vet, he gave her 0,5l milk in tube and stitched up the cord as she was bleeding alot. Only 3,5 hours old we carried her into the trailer and drive her and mummy Picara 1 hour up the road. She had convulsions and was very weak not able to stand or even sit up. I arrived home at 6am in the morning and at 10am I got first update that she was still here and not worse. She is now in the best hands and her situation is alittle more stable as she has no infections and seem to respond to the treatment. She is always with one person by her side and I was sent pictures and told that she is able to hold herself up lying at times. And with the help of the people supporting her she could actually maintain herself standing alittle. These are very good news but she needs time and there is alot of develoment still necessary for her recovery. I gave her the name Gacela, she is very big foal with incredibly long legs, let's hope we will see her run on the fields using them next to her brother. She is the grulla type buckskin, just beautiful.

So today I had to have a quiet day, I sat down in flowering field with Fiero that comes running when he sees me, the new alfalfa arrived, went home and rested until it was time to go back to give everyone dinner. Finally I took D for a ride under the moon and listening to the frog-serenade. It was a good day.
Here my new little heartbreakers;

Grattis till finingarna! :)
Fiero är verkligen vacker med ett finmejslat huvud. Men varför skulle han inte vara det, med sådan föräldrar? ;)
Håller alla tummar för lilla Gacela. Hoppas hon är en fighting spirit! Hur förtidigt kom hon? Vilken färg blir hon, svart, mörkbrun?
Glad Påsk till er alla.

I really hope your filly finds her strength and starts to improve; she looks like she's a fighter hanging in there.

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
