Hi all,

I've been hearing of quite a few occurrences of 'Red bag' deliveries lately.

Can anyone explain to me the procedure for dealing with this problem? I have a mare due in the next couple of weeks and I'm trying to be prepared, just in case!

Thanks in advance!

It's always a great idea to be prepared!! If you see the velvety red bag before you see the foal, you are working against the clock! you must cut thru the red bag and reach in to find, situate, and deliver that baby asap!! The fact that the placenta is already detached means that foal is no longer receiving oxygen from mom....and they can't breathe while inside! Here's an entire thread from just a few days ago about it, along with a video! (score! LOL)

Wow, thanks so much for the info. I was looking for a thread on this topic before I asked and I couldn't find one!

Much appreciated!

trt, welcome! Glad you logged on. Have I seen your name up before? Thought I had, but not sure.

Diana is a great resource, as are many on this board. I wish you the best on a normal and healthy delivery. What kind of horse do you own? Have you posted a foal watch thread yet?
