Planning for Poppy's Foal

Friday, April 20, 2018

PoppyThe vet visited Burgundy recently and caretaker Ali Shepard ’04 confirms that everything seems to be on track with our miniature horse Poppy and the delivery of her foal, which we’re expecting in the next few weeks. Signs like milk production and a change in Poppy’s belly shape will let Ali know that the delivery date is approaching.

Ali has set up the stall in the barn as a birthing stall, and plans to be in the barn with Poppy during the birth. The vet will come shortly after for a check of mother and foal. Poppy and her foal will likely stay in the stall for a short while before integrating back into the herd.
