I had a mare reject a foal once, it was her first one. This is what we did.

My lovely vet who spent the first week almost living at my house helping me get through this.

He sedated my mare and we were able to push the foal under her and help him get some sucking action going, he also milk her to get some of her colostrom for the foal. Then every hour we followed the same process for the first 24 hrs, then we took it down to every two hours.

Eventually she stopped resisting and she ended up accepting the foal.

Good luck.

Thanks guys

Looks like we may have had a breakthrough. Silly mare has spent the day in a drugged hazed with kicking hobbles on with us pushing the foal onto her.I think she has finally realised that that's worse than toleraing her foal..Fingers crossed as she hasn't tried to kill it in the last couple of hours.

I will keep you posted.
