Jiminy Cricket

Jiminy Cricket is a chestnut grade Arabian colt who was foaled on April 29th, 2018. His mother, Della, came to MHARF pregnant during a December 2017 case.  Jiminy Cricket was premature and showed failure to thrive and both mare and foal were admitted to Anoka Equine Veterinary Services so he could receive i.v. fluids and plasma. Bloodwork showed infection so he was also started on antibiotics. Within 48 hours Jiminy Cricket was doing well enough to be released. He does need to stay on stall rest for 30 days–but he is proving to be a feisty and energetic colt.
