Happy day!

It’s hard to believe this colt turns 4 months today. Described by the crew as rambunctious, rowdy, and getting bigger every day, we’re not sure how much longer we can keep calling this colt “Baby Bunny.” Your Foal Patrol fans hope you enjoy your special day at Gainesway (and they will probably always call you "Baby Bunny," whatever your age)!

Some promised new photos of Spanish Bunny and Baby Bunny are here! We captured these right before high temperatures settled in for a few days in Kentucky.

This active colt is most content when turned out and moving freely. He still shares a field with his favorite pasture buddy, Money Huntress 22, and the pair are growing more independent from their dams with each day.  

Baby Bunny update

In follow up to some of your questions, Spanish Bunny has a small umbilical hernia. A small percentage of foals have umbilical hernias that can range in size.

Spanish Bunny 22's umbilical hernia will be addressed by banding, a straightforward process, commonly performed by equine veterinarians for small umbilical hernias. This process involves making sure the intestines are pushed back into the abdomen and then putting several tight rubber bands around the loose skin outside of the hernia. The banding causes the loose skin to die off and heal and the gut wall to heal and close. 

Baby Bunny is quickly approaching 4 months old. He is getting big and doing well with his mom and pasture buddies at Gainesway. 

Foal Patrol thanks Dr. Luke Fallon and Dr. Jeremy Shaba of Hagyard Equine Medical Institute for assisting with a summary of the banding process.
