    Owner thinks top right will go before midnight tonight (Cricket) and Emotion on top left is "thinking about it." Direct quote from owners on the mare stare forum.

    Foal
    Drapers Acres Cam 1

    This mare is on low alert right now.

    I love marestare it is very educational and is great for people to experience the miracle of foaling and it is not fairytale that is for sure. I absolutely do not agree with all the human intervention and the goings about it sometimes so to speak and 3 of the foals whose mothers I have been watching did not make it. One lethal white, one too big for mama (reoccurence), and one dummy foal. Two of those 3 in my opinion could have been avoided. Horse owners really should do all they can possibly to ensure a safe foaling for both mama and baby even if it takes some extra research and doesn't fit "their schedule" for when their mare is bred. Not to bash on the owners because I do not know the reasons they took such risks, but people should be aware that those are choices and circumstances that can and should be avoided. Otherwise I love the beauty and excitement of expecting new life :)

    Well, they went and made the message boards closed, so I can't creep anymore and see what's going on with who. Wonder why the change? Now you can't even view the boards unless you become a member.

    Still watching the Prize Package mare. She spends as much time down as up, lol.

    I'm not sure which lethal foal you are speaking of. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the owner had recently purchased the mare but accidentally misplaced the paperwork and didn't find it until after she bred the mare. Once she found the paper work and realized, she was devastated knowing it was a possibility and was heartbroken when the foal was born knowing she could have prevented it.

    Mistakes are made but we are all humans. I won't even bother to bring up religion because I'm not up for a debate. I just take comfort in the fact that while all humans make mistakes, we can also celebrate when things go right and the mares have safe deliveries and healthy foals.

    It might be because a lot of people have been disagreeing with how the owners manage their mares and things that are being said to them are flat out honest, but some are really harsh and the mod's are trying to keep it non-existent. It has been really touchy this year. I know there has been a lot of deaths, more than usual in my experience, and I don't believe in name calling, but even though they are suffering losses most of those are due to the human error and poor management and I think the owners can learn from the constructive criticism as to not keep on making the same poor choices. Not the name calling and harsh words, they don't deserve that despite their actions, but they do need to be educated on why they got the results they did so they can hopefully learn from and not repeat. A LOT of people also disagree with the human interaction and are speaking out freely against it.

    I didn't want to state which foals I am talking about because I'm not trying to bash on the owners, just that it is very unfortunate some choices that have been made and displayed on marestare and I really hope people will educate themselves on possibilities before breeding a mare especially if they witnessed those or are going to breed. No debate, just stating I believe 2 of those 3 could and should have been avoided. There were more than those 3 this year, I just mentioned 3 circumstances I watched. Everyone has the right to breed their mare to whichever stud they choose and yes people make mistakes, but it is our duty as mare owners to educate ourselves firstly before taking action so we can provide the best results for our mares and their foals. I think I know the mare you are speaking of though, the overo mare that was bred to the overo stallion? I feel for every loss I just don't agree with the decisions made, only my opinion.
