    I bred one of my mares as a maiden when she was 21...I think...many she was 19...regardless it was a textbook pregnancy for her. No problems until delivery and it wasn't due to her age. It was due to foal position.

    IMO 9 is like perfect age for baby making lol

    Oooh, foal position is making me paranoid already. Do you mind me asking what went down? What you saw, what you didn't see, outcome, etc?

    The foal came out we believe either breech or had one leg bent back. We weren't there for the birth, but got out provably no less than 5-10 minutes after birth. Sugar was still on the ground and baby was next to her with her right front stretched out (proper position of right front and head) and left tucked underneath her body. What we speculate is that her hoof tore sugars uterus (almost lost her as well) and her umbilical cord was barely a 1/4 inch long so we believe she was still born or died during labor.


    Had we been there, if it wasn't breech we could have straightened that leg out.
    My dad tried rescue breathing and vet was called out but it was too late for the baby and we had to rush sugar to the vets office for surgery.

    Oh my word, I'm so sorry! That's terrible. Glad you could save Sugar though. My boarding manager in NE lost her mare due to a red bag/torn uterus birth. Baby is healthy though. Red bag and foal position are the two biggest worries for me right now because they're relatively common issues and I would have a hard time dealing with them myself. Theoretically, I know what you're "supposed to do" in that situation, but I have no personal experience dealing with difficult births to rely on.

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?

    Kind of? The guy I board with now is an extremely experienced horse person, but he's a truck driver and is gone a lot, so chances are he wouldn't be able to actually be there and watch... If he's home the night she decides to go, he would be able to get there quicker than a vet. But since I'm new to the area, I don't know too many people.

    Another thing to add to your To-Do list, make friends, especially horsey ones. Hopefully some of your new neighbors will have horses & maybe even years of experience.

    Our new house is way out in the middle of nowhere... We have very few neighbors. Most of them do the meat cattle or goats thing, but I may have one neighbor that has horses. I'll have to introduce myself. Hopefully I can find someone!

    Hope you can find someone. Most mares don't have any issues and hopefully your girl will be one of them :). If problems to occur don't discount a cattle person. They usually know how to readjust and assist with pulling. Its not too much different to a horse :).
