Live foaling cam is up :)

Our live foaling cam is up and running again as we have 2 mares getting close to foaling. I think Patches will foal first so she will be on cam starting tonight. Now if I see Flirt getting closer, I may switch :)

Patches is an American Shetland pony bred to our stallion Feature. We are so excited to see this foal!

I think Patches may have another week but we go ahead and put them on cam early just to be sure we dont miss the foaling.

Please be aware that if a foaling goes wrong we will shut the cam off unless we think we can resolve it quickly. Pulling a foal is never a pretty picture and we have a lot of kids that watch our cam so feel its best to shut it off should something go awry.

If you ever think you see a mare in labor please dont hesitate to call or call collect. We watch but of course we cant watch every minute.

Also please feel free to ask questions such as "why do you..." But please dont second guess how we foal out our mares. Every farm has their own way of doing things and this is our way. We do not put straw down until after the foal is born. So please do not worry. We are there to dry the foal off and then we completely strip the stall and lay down hay/straw. This works better for us then having to strip a stall soaked with amnio fluid.

Patches will be in the stall about 7 pm ohio time. If you could send a few happy thoughts for an easy foaling and healthy foal it would sure be appreciated. Even though we have been doing this for years I still get pretty nervous

Im so glad you can watch with us Aussie! Patches is in the stall now and boy is she grouchy. I did get a milk sample. It was very sticky but not thick yet so I do believe we have a few days.

Her normal signs that she is about to foal are:

Smacking her sides angrily with her head
Kicking her belly.

Some mares will pace the stall but Patches will not

If you are having trouble viewing go to WeeFoal Home and go to the trouble shooting page to see if it helps

We are switching back and forth between patches and flirt as Im not sure which will go first!
