Foaling Your Mare

Mar 18, 2011 by

Now is the time to think about your mare foaling  and to decide whether to foal her at home or send her to a professional stud.

Foaling at home is an exciting time for any mare owner but can be stressful, time consuming and along with a lack of sleep not the right thing for everyone if juggling with a full time job.  At Twemlows Hall we run foaling courses to  assist owners wanting to foal mares at home with what to expect at foaling time so they know what is normal and when problems may arise and how to deal with the situation.

Twemlows Stud Farm also offers a  foaling service and has fully equipped foaling boxes with cameras and foaling alarms, as well as on site qualified staff.

If you are thinking of taking your mare for foaling to aprofessional stud, it is recommended that she arrives  three weeks before the due date. This will help her to settle into her new daily and nightly routine and environment.
