    She doesn't need to be put in a stall to foal, if your going to use a foaling stall you should put the mare in there at least 3 weeks prior to foaling she she can built an immunity to the area, I don't think you mare has 3 weeks left. You have a grassy pasture to foal in, if it's clean and dry she should be fine.

    I agree with the three weeks in a perfect picture.

    But, trust me...when the apple is ripe...it will drop.

    In a stall or, not.

    ^^I know and I think that apple is very ripe and ready to drop at any time. My opinion the OP's goat shed would be to small and could cause other issues with the birth. It appears that the mare is a mustang at least has the mustang looking brand, they are a hardy lot and hopeful all will go smoothly.

    No way would a goat stall work!!!!

    The OP is now a breeder....with all of the responsibilities.

    I don't think this was a planned breeding. I thought the owner got the horse already in foal.

    Foal
    No this was not a planned breeding and yes I was very unprepared. But I talked to the original owner today and she said she thought that she breed in the beginning of may last year... and she told me that this is not her first foal and she is a very good mother... any that she has always foaled on her own in a small pasture... so I think that I will wrap her tail and get a hold of the vet and have them on call... And besides that I guess all I can do it wait...

    The person you bought the mare from is not a responsible person.

    I would not believe much she said.

    Foal
    The person I got the horse from is my aunt and I didnt buy her I rescued her because they had to many horses and the land that they had the horses on was taken away from them when the man that owned the land passed away so it was an emergency case that I why I have her and why I am so unprepared for this....
