    Rivendell looks very promising! She's been up and down and is so uncomfortable.

    I have found I can only see some of the cameras on my FireFox and others using IE for my browser. I get an error message on FF when I try to run the add-on for certain cameras, but not others.

    Whipple - that is a good birth - very calm mama, and the owners not rushing in to yank the baby out the minute the legs emerge. I think most people tend to be far more invasive than needed. It's good to be there and prepared if something goes wrong, but let nature take it's course for goodness sake.

    Still watching the girls on the Briner QH cam - it's got to be soon, their twitter updates say both mares are on day 341. Any time now!
    Couldn't agree more - I find in browsing the videos on YouTube (be it foaling, calving, whelping, kidding - you name it, yes, I have a strange obsession with the birth process) 99% of the time you see INTERFERENCE and not INTERVENTION.

    People don't seem to know the difference *s* I have watched several of these mare stare births now, and with the exception (somewhat, they did pull the baby in the end) of the Treasure mare youtube clip that was posted, every single foal has been yanked. I've attended and helped with a lot of births, and have only occasionally (mainly with the minis, again) been in a situation where pulling was needed. There is no reason to pull a foal that is coming with no issues on it's own, and I don't believe it's any help to the mare to get in there and risk making things go faster than they should or are ready to. Yes, get in and help IF YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE AND KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, but again, only if it's NEEDED, not just because you are impatient.

    Thank you for letting us know. So very sad. RIP Sissy dear. We might not have known you but I'm sure you were a good girl.

    Foal
    Now I'm hooked too! I'm just upset that the weekend is over because now I won't be able to check in as often! I don't want to miss anything! I've had the Briner Quarter Horses open since Friday and just started watching Unbridled Animal Rescue, Twin Acres Ranch, and Painted Quarter Ranch but still nothing. I'm so eager to see a birth!
