Completely agree about live cams. They are LITERALLY life savers! :)

Hope all goes well with your foaling! I have one more due this year, she'll be 300 days on 7/11.

WeeFoal is right. Dystocias can be much more common in minis. There is not as much room in a mini mare for the foal to get positioned correctly.

Most serious breeders have TV cam coverage and foal alams/foal alerts and systems for monitoring so they can be there at foaling time.

The sac around the mini foal seems to be thicker in proportion and many times a foal cannot get out unless you break the sac.

And yes, there is so little room inside, it is quite difficult to get your hand or arm in to reposition a foal if you have to do that.
