Imprinting Foals

Impressions of the welcome culture at SANTO STEFANO

The first gulp of milk (colostrum) full with valuable protecting substances milked from the mother is supplied by us immediately after cleaning and disinfecting the umbilical cord. It is important to give the colostrum during the first 2 hours of life of the foal to protect it from dangerous diseases.

Then we help the little creature to get up and to find the mother's udder. These very intimate moments where only we are present without intruding or disturbing the relation between mother and newborn are the "imprinting" that makes horses so special.
