It happened during the wee hours of April 11th.
So far, I have no details except that Connie’s foal is HEALTHY!
Yes, he is small but the vet thinks it is because the unknown sire was small, not because he is malnourished.
Evidently, Connie gave all her groceries to the baby… ;)
Connie is doing fine. She birthed him all by herself and things went very smoothly.
From what I could gather, the caretakers found 8 hooves instead of 4 in her stall this morning! Everything was over and done with before breakfast arrived. Mama and baby were just fine.
But there was a whole lotta hootin’ and hollerin’ going on from the humans! The SF SPCA erupted in two-legger joy! Of course it was a colt and of course he would be named after Champ who lost his battle so recently… Yup. It is official. This lucky colt will be called, “Little Champ”!
I’m hoping to have more photos and stories very shortly. I will keep you posted.
WELCOME BABY CHAMP!
LET’S HELP FEED THIS YOUNG ONE AND ALL OF HIS LEGACY’S BUDDIES AT SOUTH FLORIDA SPCA! A JOB WELL DONE!
