Foaling Complications

Postby Sarah6762 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 3:06 am

Mare is a draft cross. My mare's maiden foaling (I was not aware she was bred at the time until foaling) had sever complications, twins and the first twin was breech. I assume it is due to the fact there were twins. In any event, now 7 years later we are 2 weeks away from foaling and I am a nervous wreck. I have read that draft breeds have higher rates of complications. What is is likelihood of another foaling disaster. I have been studying diligently how to re position foals in every scenario and just can't sleep I am so worried. She is HUGE in her barrel and I just want to do all I can to keep her and the foal safe. She was ultra sounded to make sure there is no twin. Has anyone had to re position a foal?

There's really no way to predict if you will have a problem or not. The majority of foalings go ahead without complications, but as you (unfortunately) know, when things go wrong, they go wrong quite fast.

Have a talk to your veterinarian, and have them aware of the fact that your mare is getting into the "foaling zone" (remember, there is no such thing as a due date in the equine!!), and if you have specific concerns, perhaps have them come and look at the mare ahead of time.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes!! :)
