Thread: We have a foal coming... in a month eeeek!

  1. #1

    Default We have a foal coming... in a month eeeek!

    We've ended up with a BOGOF! The vet has been and said that the yards pet Shetland is due in less than a month.
    Only problem is no one know anything about foaling... so any tips are greatly appreciated!

    She's currently stabled in a massive barn all to herself so she's got plenty of room if she foals during the night but thats pretty much all we've got so far!

    Keep looking for relaxed vulva and wax on teats/running milk. The relaxed vulva is hugely noticeable!! And that's usually 6-12 hrs before birth. Do you have a place to sleep at the yard? Do it in shifts?

    Good luck! I hope she doesn't drag it out for you, it's not a lot of fun. Best one I had was D's mum when she was having Wildebeast... grand total of 3hrs 40mins on foal watch. And she woke me up when it was time. Good girl that
