In my area, I think the best time to have a foal born is mid-late April, and mid-Junhe. I live in Ontario, so we still get heavy snowfall in April. Heck, we even had snow on the ground on Mother's Day this year! After June the flies are very bad, as well as the temperature. We get 40 degrees celcius some days, without humidity!
I think my filly was born at a good time, April 25. The flies weren't too bad, and it was warm, but not too cold or too hot. Perfect for her to just run around and be a foal without me having to worry about her overheating.
I think it depends on the area though, since climate varies everywhere.
It has to be a time frame where the foal will not get overheated when little, as well too cold. Bugs also have to be considered as you do not want the naval to get infected from flies or other bugs.
