On April 13, we shared a video of Three Chimneys' Chris Baker discussing Repeta's placenta and things to look for during a post-foaling placenta examination, including its weight, color, and structural soundness.
We received this video from Old Tavern Farm yesterday, in which Elena and Axel, children of the farm's veterinarians Dr. Scott Ahlschwede & Dr. Patricia Flores Ahlschwede of Rood & Riddle Saratoga, conduct their own post-foaling exam of Floripa's placenta. A big thanks to Elena and Axel for sharing their knowledge with us and helping us understand the many things a placenta has to tell us about mare and foal health.
