Mare Due Soon?
I have a TB mare who is due soon to foal. I don't have her exact due dates but I roughly estimate that she's due the week of June20-25th(judging by when she was sent to the stallion and when she came home). The stallion owners never gave me the breeding dates and won't return any emails I send them, so I can't find out for sure. Anyways that aside I am conveniently going away for 10days on a trip in the time when I am sure my mare will foal so my brother is going to be the one looking after her through foaling. Currently she is nice and big and her udder has been developing, only clear liquid comes out so far. She is checked over twice daily. Can anyone else give some pointers to help out with what he should look for as she gets nearer to foaling? (he's never done this with horses before, only helped with cows a bit..I'm sure everything will be fine but I want him to have as much info as possible)
