Our mare foaled late sat/early sunday and she is a nervous wreck. She seems so protective. Even if the foal is running in the stall around her she does a circle in the middle to keep her eye on him. And he seems very independent which makes her even more nervous. I have had to lock the other mares out of the barn because even though she and her foal are locked in a stall she gets so upset if another horse is in the barn that I am afraid she may accidentally hurt the foal. Is this normal and will she hopefully chill out??

Dorthy it is normal for mares to be very protective especially the first week or so. They usually get more relaxed after a couple weeks.

My Ruby did the same thing. She would get very upset if I got between her and the foal.

Ruby calmed down after a week. Ruby is a very good mommy, sounds like your girl is too!

My girl wasn't as nervous as yours, but she went from keeping that baby within 6 feet of her to wandering across the 1/2 acre pasture while it was sleeping in less than 3 weeks.
