I think these mares enjoy the pampering so much, the hold off knowing that when the kid gets here ..it'll be all about him/her.

The last foal I dealt with was born on the farm I was managing. The owner made some HUGE mistakes which led me to having to spend HOURS catching her or haltering her, she was really bad about kicking & rearing for a while too.

My advice, handle early (let mama and baby have their bonding time of course) and handle often! Halter break it ASAP. You don't necessarily need to work on leading immediately but getting that baby used to having hands on/around it's face & ears will make your life much easier when it's bigger and you have to go through the weaning process! I ended up not only having to help halter break a weanling, but also spent hours teaching said weanling how to lead & pick up feet!

Also, avoid getting kicked. It might be little but it still hurts!

The foal we had was out of two Thoroughbreds, both off the track, and mama was as big as a house before she finally foaled! She had a cute little bay filly who was the devil for quite a while!
