I would be very interested in anyone's thoughts on this!
My girl was 10 when she foaled for the first time so not old :). Pregnancy was fine but she had a still birth unfortunately, no-one knows the cause. 2 years later she foaled my now 2 year old and needed a hand because the fillys shoulders were big and it was a tight squeeze. Do you have anyone experienced who'd be willing to help foal watch etc in case you need help?
