What stall size is better for a birthing stall.
A 10'x10', 12'x12' or a 14'x14'.

Out of the 3 choices, the 14 X 14 would be the best choice....to give mom and baby room to move around.

Thanks I had a feeling that was the best choice I just wasn't sure what one was the best becuase I have heard if there to big the foal could get hurt.

Heya Dee....for most mares, the more room the better. Lessens the likelyhood that they will foal directly on/next to a wall (although they ALWAYS seem to do so anyway). This also gives the mare and/or foal enough room to lay down...so nobody gets stepped on.
However, I have seen mares foal out in 12 x 12 stalls without issue. My foaling stall is 12X22...cleaning it with those two in it is a real chore.

I have a problem we are just starting this business thing and we built our small barn last year and the stalls are only 10X10 and there not going anywhere. Would it be best to let them foal in the pasture?

Daniel, can you take down a ceter wall to make a double stall for the mare and foal?

our mares all foal on clean pasture. The only complaint we have with the set up is that we end up walking most of 10 acres to check them all @ night.

Well it's only a 3 stall barn and the last stall is full of hay and we have 2 pregnant mares(one we know of and the other getting checked tomorrow). So would 10X10 do or should we let them foal in the pasture?

Thanks for the replys though

Daniel I don't know much about the stall size but, I think a 10'x10' would be okay as long as you don't keep the mare and foal in the barn stall to long. Foaling out in the pasture would be okay but, the bad thing about that is you might not be able to monitor the mare as close. It would be a little bit better if you had the mare inside to foal but, if you feel better about the mare foaling outside in a pasture that's okay just have a building they can go in if the weather gets bad.
