Our 8YO maiden mare is dripping milk quite heavily, is "slab-sided" and a few hours ago became aggressive (not her normal temperment) towards us when we check on her.

Do mares foal during day? Oldtimers usually say mares foal predominately at night. Thanks for any advise.

I had three babies this year and ALL of them were in the daytime. One at 10 am, one at 12 noon, and one at 2 am...I was told that mares almost always go at night..I guess my mares are abnormal! HEHE

Both of my maiden mares foaled between 8 and 9 am this year.

Out of 13 foals over the years, I've probably had an equal number of foals born during the day as I have during the night.

Deb,

My 16 yo maiden foaled at 1:00 in the afternoon just over a week ago and everything went well, except she got colic pretty bad. The vet had to tube her with fluid and I gave her banamine for 2 days. Other than that we are fine now. My mare was not aggressive until after foaling.

Thanks for all the response. Mom had the baby at 11:19 pm (and we were there to witness) . Both are doing well. Foal didn't want to nurse so had to tube him hours 10 - 30. Now doing great!!! Passed foal examine great. Now we know what human parents go through - whew - this is hard work!! Great experience though and we are happy we did it. The baby is a QH palamino stud colt and our vet asked if we thought we would show him as he looks to have good promise

My maiden mare foaled on the 28th at 11:25am. What a nice suprise for memorial day. I too was expecting a night foaling. Guess she felt differently!
