Babies are so fun

Catlow's colt is incorrigible!  He really likes to bite necks.

This is a healing scrape on the inside of Charlie's hind leg.  The hair growing in is pitch black!  It gives a neat reminder of what color she'll be some day!

Denny's wound just keeps healing up and getting smaller.

I really want to upload some videos, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do it.

Denny's wound healing well

Took the stitches out a few days ago.   Just a few places where the wound didn't seal up right away, but it looks great!  I did not put him on any antibiotics since I caught it and stitched it up within 30 minutes of it happening.  I'm happy with it.  He's doing well.  It's not as itchy as it was at first as it heals up.

Growth spurts

Charlie is going through a growth spurt and filling out.  She's really shot up and is quite a bit taller than Denny right now.  Denny is filling out, but hasn't started to grow up yet.  Charlie has also gotten over her fear of me.  I can touch her all over and pick up her feet and finally rub her face. 

Denny really thinks he's a little stallion.  So interesting to see the difference between colts and fillies, even at a young age. 

They are now 1 month old and super fun!

Poor Denny

Poor Denny ran through the fence and got cut up.  Mostly one superficial cut through the skin and a nick in the first fascial layer, and a bunch of raw stretched skin.  I was able to clean the cut up and stitch him up (after sedating and numbing him).  He was a good boy and feels so sorry for himself.  He is sore.  And the tissues are starting to swell.  I'll keep him on anti-inflammatories for a bit.  He'll heal okay, but I feel so bad for him.  Silly babies just panic and can't think straight.  Charlie has run through the fence a couple times too, but hasn't gotten hurt at all.

Filling out

The colt is pretty bold and really filling out.  Charlie, the filly, is filling out too, but in a petite way.  She is shy, but really coming around and likes to be petted now.  But she's jumpy and her first reaction is to panic.  Denny, the colt, doesn't have that panic reaction at all.  I can pick, pick, pick at him (not in an annoying way, but rubbing him, or asking him to pick up his feet) and eventually he'll get annoyed and try to bite.  We are working on that.
