27. Rex

"Christy Gieseke sent in this cute photo of her foal, Rex.
He was born over a month early, his head was so big he couldn't hold it up
on his own for days, that is how he got his name after the dinosaur. His hair
was so fine you would think he was pink and brown. He couldn't stand for the first
few days - his legs went in all directions and were like rubber. The odds were
against him, but to me and everybody else that meets him, we have to say,
he is a true surviver ... only the strong survive. I have to say with every feeding
I would see some improvment - that is what keeps me going. Now he is just like
a normal foal and full of personality. His mother rejected him because she
was having health problems, she is now doing much better. Rex is by my
Dutch stallion, Juss For The Taste, and out of my TB mare, Slew's Halo.
This picture was taken at three days shy of six weeks old."
