It has a wire that connects to a little TV and everything! I think it will work perfectly if we mount it in her stall and run the wire through the wall to the tack area. Nothing like a little improvisation!
The only thing I am worried about is this: the way we have it set up, her stall is connected to a little run. The stall is not separated by a wall, just a doorway. What do you think her chances are of foaling inside? She spends a lot of time in her stall and that is where she chooses to go to sleep at night, but I an worried I will set up the camera inside and she will go foal outside! While that would be fine, it would make it harder for me. Do you think she will choose to foal in her stall?
Haha,good idea with the fish cam,after all,whatever works,right? Lol.I'm in the same quandary! I also have an outside pen that is connected to the inside pen/stall.Both my other broodmares always foaled outside,every time.I didn't have a camera then,so not a big deal,but now that I do,it would be a bummer to not be able to get it on tape,so to speak!
