I thought you guys might be interested in what happened when Galea started to deliver standing up....

First pix..I am on the phone with the vet who instructed me to provide traction for the foal between contractions...the two feet and head delivered before Galea laid down to deliver the rest of the foal...

Amazing! How awesome you were there. You are a very good multi-tasker! They scare me when they stand up during delivery to reposition, but I have never seen one start delivery and get that far standing. What an experience! I trust mom and baby are fine based on the last pic. Once again, beautiful horses!

Great pics Terry, we've had one or two that decided they wanted to deliver standing up! Looks like you did a great job

We had a mare that had 3 foals, delivered every one of them standing up, did not lay down during any part of the delivery. It's not fun trying to keep a hold of the slippery things during the entire delivery. Congratulations on a beautiful foal!!

My mare in 2007 did that also--she layed down after the foal was at least 1/2 out. Wish someone was video taping cuase here I was following her around stall behind her with my arms out going--please lay down.
So glad she did too cause the foal was about 170 pounds at birth!!
way to go glad it turned out good

Galea stood absolutely still and didn't move until the vet told me to walk out of the stall...then she laid right down. She never laid down during her labor nor did much pacing...just stood stock still when her water broke and the foal's foot came out and went back in...then nothing until I reached in and gently pulled the two feet out...I made sure to remove the sac from the filly's face....

This was my mare this morning at 3 a.m. My vet had to pull the foal out and she stood up the whole time!

Shawn, those are great photos. You could probably post them as a new thread too. Glad you shared them.

Are you new to the board? If so welcome. Tell us a little about yourself, if you would.

I have a question. If the mare is standing during delivery, is it always necessary to provide traction? I can see how that might be necessary, with the mare's anatomy as it is.

By the way Terry, I loved the picture of you with phone in hand and pulling on the legs at the same time. That sort of encapsulates the life of a horse midwife!

Brilliant pictures. And lovely colour on that foal :-)

I think I've been assisting a mare standing twice - the first was a difficult foaling, foal's nose kept slipping down - all in all, not a nice outcome, and I'm not sure had it been easier had the mare lied down, which she wouldn't do. The second was a normal foaling, the mare pretty much did the job herself, no traction really necessary - we were there really to soften the landing and crab the umbilicus, which obviously snapped straight away.
