There is no real birth story for Gunner, because he was born when we weren't looking! His dam displayed no behavioral signs of impending foaling. She had waxed up two days prior so we were checking every hour, but we usually wait until we see that they are in stage one by their behavior before monitoring non-stop. And her behavior never changed. Pat went out and she was fine, sleeping as usual at about 1 AM, and then Pat went out an hour later and there was the foal, struggling to get up already. Even though thankfully most mares foal without complication, it's still good to be there when it's happening in case there needs to be an intervention. But alls well that ends well!
