Othello’s birthday

We found him around 5:30 in the morning, Carmen had not expelled the placenta and Othello didn’t know how to suckle so it was worrying, especially when Jillian the vet arrived and said he was what they call a “dummy foal” because he was so late.  However, she milked Carmen, tubed the baby – what a rodeo that was – and after an  hour or so Mike and I had him suckling like a vacuum.  He has been thriving ever since.
