Hi i'm pretty new on the forum and happy to be here. names Mandii, nice meet ya'll!
Anyways, not new to foaling but now that my mares have given me gorgeous foals. now the fillies are new first time mommies [at age 5], and this granny [me] is a worry wort and wonder if i should have the vet foal out their first baby? here's why i asked, when i first started breeding my minis at age 12 my minis were first time mommies and at the time i couldn't stay out and mare stare. the vet help foal them both and called me to take them home and spoil those babies with love hehe. now i can mare stare, but i'm worrying if i bug them too much and etc.:lol:
See if your vet can install a foal alert system, It goes into the birthing canal and goes off when the mares water breaks. It automatically calls a set phone number! We WERE going to have one installed in Ariel the day she foaled! Good luck!
