Once again, hello...I am new here. I have already posted in this catagory, but have another question some of you may be able to help me with.
Unfortunatley we are moving. Not far, about 12 miles from our present place, but the move will happen in early spring...sometime in March.
My mares are all pregnant. They have been at this place for many years and I hate having to move them at all...but especially when they are all going into their last trimester. Two of them should be Ok, as they aren't due until April, but my first mare to foal is due the very end of March.
Has anyone here had to move mares to a strange place just before foaling? The trailer I'll use for the actual move is very nice, they can all get in there together and the trip will only take about 20 minutes...what I am concerned with is the first mare to foal...has anyone had to move a mare to a new place about 3 weeks before she was due to foal?
Will my mare get so upset at being in a new place that it'll be a problem?
Please, I need some advice and words of wisdom here...I am very upset at having to move at the wrong time.
Can anyone offer something in the way of experience with this?
Thanks soooooo much!!

Hello Again,
We foal mares for clients and they have to be trailered to our place which is about the same distance. We haven't had any problems. We try to get them here at least 3 weeks before the foal is "due" to ensure proper immunities and they stay for a month with the foal until time to be bred back. I think your mares will be grand as your not moving far. A long haul trip might be more of a concern.

And to add to wht terri has said - They are all going together - which will make it alot easier - I moved my mare at about 6mths (so alot before she was due compared to your own) but she is now in a pasture on her own - Not ideal, and I was also quite upset at the prospect. She was not overly stressed about the move - She tends to be quite a loner anyhow for a herd animal! It will help that all your mares are in familiar company, that will go in your favour. Godd luck at the new place! : )

Hello,
I moved my mare Annie to our home last year when she was in foal. We didn't know if she was going to have the foal in March or April. We moved her about 2 1/2 hours away. The vet said he taught she would be fine,so we moved her here. Annie did fine. Annie had her foal April 12, 2005, we moved her here about First of March. You can see Annie on www.photobucket.com/albums/e329/MBhorses
I would ask your vet about the move,see what he thinks as well. Are your mares used to beening haul?
THANKS MELISSA
