I found this article on foaling while researching a response to someone else and thought it had some useful information. There is a picture of a red bag presentation at the bottom. I know that is a fear of many on this board.

Jonathan,
Thank you so much for the post with the pics. I have never had a red bag delivery, but it is one of my fears and it's nice to actually get to see a pic of exactly what you will see when this occurs.

Does the foal and/or mare usually make it or does it just depend on how quickly the baby is delivered?

Most of ours will make it. The key is to catch it early.

Johnathan, I wasn't able to see the first link, (page not found-error) but the second one came up. Thanks very much. Now I will know it if I see it-heaven forbid.

I was curious about something though. Since mares do not want to have our eyeballs glued to them when they deliver, how does that affect deliveries when you guys are there watching 24/7? Do you think any of them delay it at all, and finally just can't wait anymore, or what?

We have have 102 on the ground and all but one suprises was assisted. **See foaling suprises thread for my feeling on that subject!** I don't think ours really care if we are watching. We are in and out of the stalls picking and watering off all night in the foaling barn. The five closest are right outside the observation room where I can see them and they can see me. They have been conditioned since the day they arrive that we are always around. They are checked outsidein the field at night(spotting and walking through), stalls picked in every barn. I think when its their time they will go no matter who is around.

They must have moved the picture, so I removed the second link.
