Thank you for such a sweet warm welcome.

A little about me. I live on 2 acres in Indianapolis. I have 6 miniature horses. One stallion (will be a gelding this weekend) and 5 mares.

I was pretty excited for spring waiting for the birth of 2 foals. To my surprise I was blessed with 2 dwarfs. I went through a lot of emotions mostly real mad at myself. I have had 3 healthy foals in the past and to be honest what I believe was a dwarf last year that lived only 2 days.

On April the 15th we had a little filly. We called her Winnie. She has some issues mostly with both back legs. One is turned under enough that she is walking on her coronary band. Thankfully we did splint that one yesterday and hope to do the other one today.

This is sweet little Winnie

On Friday morning the 20th we had a colt. His name is firecracker. At least he is up on all fours. The picture was taken about an hour after he was born.

Janell has been an absolute angel. She has given me a lot of support and when I was down on myself gave me reason to smile.

I guess I am pretty scared about what the future holds for my foals. I just don't want to ever have to go through this again. I love my horses like my own children.

Hi Melanie, so tickled to see that you found the time to post and introduce yourself and your babies, and ya even posted pictures!!!!
WE LOVE pictures!!!! Laughing

Glad to hear that you were able to brace little Winnie's leg yesterday, just be VERY diligent in checking for pressure sores! And making sure you haven't wrapped too tightly!

Looking forward to helping these babies with their little legs.

Sending LOTS of extra sugars for those babies....ya have your hands full, that's for sure! Very Happy

Welcome Melanie,
You have adorable babies. Keep in touch with all the experts here. I only have one dwarf and have learned a lot about taking care of her. I have 8 other mini horses and other critters. Glad you joined us as this is a wonderful group.

I really enjoyed our visit. The phone this afternoon, Melanie! Very Happy

Glad the babies are doing well, and that little Firecracker is living up to his name! Sad What precious little treasures they are!

Looking forward to seeing more pix and videos! Very Happy

Would be nice if the little stinkers would hold still.

Maybe when they settle some I will try to get better ones.

Firecrackers mother is Buttered Muffin. Butter was attacked by a doberman when she was a foal and he tore her tail off. Now she only has a powder puff. I was told by her owner that no one wanted her but I never felt that way. She is the most beautiful mare I own.

Winnies Mom is Star Bright.

Janell suggested I massage his legs as he seemed to be walking on the tip of the front of his hooves. He is much better this evening and hardly limping at all.

My little Winnie with one splint on. We put the other one on after the video was taken.

Had them weighed today. Winnie weighs 32 lbs and Firecracker is 26 lbs. I can almost see them growing.

I really enjoyed talking to you too Janell.

I know Firecracker appreciates me massaging his little legs. He has you to thank for that.

Good luck with Winnie's little leg. if Janell is instructing you ,she is in great hands!!!

You are blessed! God send you two little angels, right to your door. My Teena was born here too. no one told me til after the fact that Appaloosa lines are rife with dwarfism. what a surprise I had that morning when i went down and there stood this little BRICK staring back at me. lol she is solid black. lol o she does have a tinsy weeny star on her forehead.. her one and only appy spot. Teena is my little bad thing! and we love her dearly! Enjoy your babies. they are lucky to have you as their mama!!

Thank you Paula and Susan for the nice comments.

I am an empty nester so I can spend all my time with the little ones.

I have been going through the messages and looking at pictures of the babies. They are all so sweet.

Hopefully I will be able to get my babies legs straight so they won't have too much trouble getting around. I took pics of their little hooves to send to Janell so we will see what she thinks.

Melanie, your little Firecracker reminds me so much of my little Peanut. Not the same color, but his walking and actions are just like Peanuts. I am trying to get some pictures posted of Peanut. He will be 12 weeks on May 5th. He is my heart.
