Nursing On Her Own
Our weaker twin, Topaz is now able to get up without any help and is nursing on her own. We still have to make sure that the mare continues to produce enough milk for two foals. She has always been a good milker, so we are hopeful that we won't have a problem there. We also have to make sure that Topaz passes all of her meconium (first tarry poop). Sapphire has already accomplished this feat on her own with no assistance. Topaz may require an enema.
