    Hi everybody!! I was going over my calendar and getting vaccines together and it hit me that I am 50days away from the first 2021 foal being born. So its more than time to get a thread started for the crazy 2021 foaling season. It should be a really fun one. My business is finally getting some...

    Hello. I have mentioned before my 5-year-old mare. Since she looks like she is in her late-term gestation period, she will probably foal. I live with my family, as I said. There are seven of us. I have three sisters and my dad, mom, and grandma. Anyways, the thing is that only me and then...

    Hey! As I am starting to get ready for foaling season at my barn, I`ve been lurking around this forum reading all the old foaling threads (and also noticing there are no new ones for this spring? Fellow backyard breeders, where are you?!). So I figured that I need to make a thread for my two...

    I have just found this interesting video on Simon Constable Equine Vets youtube channel. It looks at the issues around foaling and shows the birth of an Arab colt.

    Hi! I'd like some help as to what to do with my mare. She is a 14 year-old pottok having her first foal. She spent a month with a stallion (had two heats) and came back 17th of july. She has had all the signs. Filling of the teats, waxing, all her muscles of the pelvic area are relaxed. She...

    Hi there So to make the story short, back in June I got a new mare for free. A friend of mine was going to get a filly in some stables over 3 hours drive away. The filly wasn't comfortable with traveling alone and 6 hours would be too long to take her own mare there and back in a day. So I got...

    So... we rescued a horse... and it turns out she's pregnant. And it's winter... most likely will be a very cold one. AND I have no clue when exactly she was bred or to what stallion. When we first got her, she was a ribby rail; no muscle in the chest, a ewe neck, and extremely thin...

    I own a 21 year old Tobiano paint mare, who is about 14.2 to 15 hands tall. I am wondering what I should do before I breed her? I have never bred a horse before, and I have owned her for almost 2 years now. I am looking to breed her to a warmblood, so the baby can be used for eventing. I have...

    Its a shame with all the horses out there that a horse ends up at a rescue, then is adopted out, only to find out shes in her last stage of pregnancy. That is what happened with this horse, she is a boarders horse and we were very surprised to find out she is in foal. I know a lot of u enjoy...
