    Aww, that's a crying shame, I'm so sorry she got hurt. I hope people read this post and understand what trying to interfere to much does! I'm very happy both her and the foal are ok - Rumour was an ENORMOUS newborn! She very likely may have needed help anyway, but always always pull with the contractions!

    Yes Rumour was HUGE! She couldn't even walk under Sonya when she was a newborn because she was so tall. I am thinking she may have helped a little bit with the ripping because she was so big.

    And yes, always pull with contractions, or else you will have to pay extra on the vet fees!

    In the video I am pretty sure you can tell when she rips. When he is pulling the wrong way, and she gets up. That could have been when..

    But now they are both healthy and happy girls! I am very glad that everything else when fine. No complications with Sonya's pregnancy, and Rumour is perfectly healthy, and hasn't gotten into too much trouble yet. She has only casted herself once, but we fixed her right away and she got up and ran away, so no damage done!

    Rumor is absolutely darling, you're very lucky :) I'm so glad they're both happy and healthy.
    Just a few notes... so others don't think it's OK -- this video had me cringing in a few places. The stall is really tiny; mares need room to be able to stretch their necks out and still have room to deliver the foal. Especially for maidens, it's really nice for them to have quiet around them when they're delivering - she doesn't feel safe, so she doesn't lay down for long. Delivering standing is hard on the mare and foal, and as MM said, always pull with contractions only if the mare needs it.

    Enjoy your new filly!!

    Cute foal.
    That was a little uncalled for, imho. It looks like the video was pasted together at one point, so the mare may have been unproductively pushing for longer than the video shows. That filly was huge, and momma was getting no where; the person who aided, didn't 'jump right in there', but waited, and helped only when it seemed like the mare was getting tired, and not getting anywhere. The guy who helped was not pulling unless the mare was pushing, atleast to what I can tell...

    I was cringing as well...that stall was not big enough to be a birthing stall IMO. I really didn't agree with how much help was offered so soon - that mare was doing fine as far as I could tell. We're not talking about her fending off wild animals here...she was birthing. There was not NEAR enough bedding for a regular horse in that stall either, let alone a birthing mare...she darn near fell a couple minutes into the video. Last thing that bugged me was that the 2 men were nice enough to assist in the birthing, but then dropped the foal on it's head as soon as it was out...

    Cute foal and all, glad nothing went seriously wrong...

    Foal
    I don't know , I had a problem with the noise, and the size of stall, Im so glad it all turned out for the best, I try to keep a quiet calm environment , things tend to be alot easier on mare. Im sorry he felt he needed to pull the way he did, that was horrible..and in such an odd direction.

    He is adorable....Im sorry your mare tore, and glad..things are going well now:)
