Standing for the first time

Amelia Stratman, left, a senior from Fairview Heights studying equine science, and horseback riding instructor Anne Corbin help Lillie, the second foal born during March, stand up Thursday morning at the SIUC Equine Center. Lillie’s mother, Lotus, watched her newborn while she rested after 30 minutes of labor. “ Being able to be a part of the foal watch is an amazing thing to do,” Stratman said. Equine students foal watch, or look after pregnant mares, during all-night shifts each spring.
