Within a couple days of being born he started having trouble walking and standing and losing strength. Him and mom were quickly pulled to a private stall to determine what was wrong with the young colt. After consulting with the Vet and diagnosing his issue, it was decided to pull the colt from mom since he wasn’t able to nurse from her sufficiently on his own. Keepers worked around the clock to feed him every 2-3 hours and work on building his strength back up and helping him to exercise.
Apollo is now back on his feet and ready to take on the world. This little guy will continue getting fed every 3-4 hours for the next couple weeks of his life and is taking over the zoo. He loves following the keepers around and learning to run and play. Now it’s not an usual occurrence around to zoo to see this little guy following his keepers around and exploring his new world.
