Horse birth

This poor mare gave birth to her colt at Thanksgiving Point while we were there. We didn’t see the actual birth, but arrived at her stall about 10 minutes later. I did stick around to catch the colt’s first nursing.

All the other moms there were just HORRIFIED at the placenta falling out, and completely disgusted at her licking at it. “Oh, that’s just disturbing!!” Yeah, ok, whatever.
