What is the ideal stall size/situation and corral for a pregnant mare due to foal, and for the few days after foaling?

Cheryl: We are almost done with our new horse barn. We made out stalls 12X12 with "swinging dividers" to each stall to open up into dougle stalls for foaling (12X24). We turn our mares and babies out the next day after foaling in one of our 10 acre fields (seperated from the other horses so they aren't being bugged) during the day, weather permitting. This field accesses all of the other horses so that if mom wants to "visit" over the fence with her buddies, she can. If she wants them to leave her alone, that works as well.

Just my thoughts to the discussion.

I also have 12x12 stalls with swinging dividers that opens up to a 12x24 foaling stall. I have a large paddock off the back of the stall that I can open a door too or I can leave mom and baby locked in the stall.

i like my foal boxes to be as large as possible. On my old farm we had the 12 x 24 foot ones, and also some big 20 x20 foot ones, which was great

Now on my new farm we have 14 x 35 foot boxes, with post and rail yards attached, these are really fantastic, especially if the foals need confining for any reason

Make them as large as you can, i find this is best
