I was wanting to know about what you all think about this. My 300 day pregnant mare went through a small opening that she made, when kicking at another mare on the other side of the fence. My mare went through were the two fences are put together. The opening was big enough for a horse who is not 300 days pregnant.I was worried about the unborn foal. The mare looks okay, but she took off some of her fur on both side of her flanks area.I was affraid she might had push to much on the flank area for the foal room he or she is in. She didn't not cut the skin, but I was hoping the baby didn't get hurt. I don't understand why she would put herself through a opening not big enough for her to go through. Do you all think the foal is okay? I have seen it moving and kicking. I hope this does not make her foal early, if she does will the foal be okay. Her udder has just now drop,but no milk in it yet. My husband thinks she and the foal will be fine.Pray the foal is okay. The stud we breed her to is now gelded. Thank you for your input on this matter. THANKS Melissa
Ya, I would venture to say that the foal is fine, especially if there is no signs of distress. The crazy things those four legged creatures will do. Most the time the pg female has alot of protection for the unborn
Annie has not foaled yet as of April 23,2006. I hope it is soon. i will let you all know. take care, melissa
