I know Shadow misses her stall in the barn, but it is just not big enough for foaling. My husband enclosed a paddock area with our run -in shed. She has plenty of clean ground and shelter. I visit with her throughout the day. She loves going in our yard to graze. There are times that I left her out.....( supervised, of course) for over an hour, just for a change of scenery and to graze on fresh grass.......I don't have plush acreage. So this is always a treat for her. She never leaves our property. She is like a big puppy dog. Now I am getting worried if she has ingested toxic fescue! My husband said that it is in our yard along with rye grass and clover. I pray that she or her foals's health isn't compromised!!!!
I personally wouldn't worry about an hour or two of grazing where they may be a little fescue. Since we normally feed fescue, we separate a pregnant mare from the herd just like you did to feed only orchard, but even in the pregnant mare's pasture, there is some fescue mixed in and it has not been a problem. If it really worries you talk to your vet. Your vet can give you Equidone, which neutralizes fescue toxicity.

ahhh OK That sounds great
Don't panic, the foal will be born when he/she feels like it
It's probably very pleasant lounging around in that big hammock.

Subbing :) good luck!

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.
