Hi - I have a mare due to foal within a few weeks.. I want to move her to a breeding farm 15 mins up the road who regularly foals out mares.. Would this harm her or her baby?

I wouldnt think so.. She should be fine.. I had to take my mare to the vet after she got kicked in the belly (he is about 30mins away) and she is proceeding with her pregnancy.. She was at that time 4 weeks from her due date

I moved my mare to an Equine Hospital to foal out about 1 hour away, she was 2 weeks from her "due"date when we moved her. She was fine, delivered a healthy filly and brought both home at 3 days old.

I am doing that Kentucky Incentive Fund thing with my AQHA mares. Will ship them to the breeding farm in Kentucky (from South Carolina) approximately 1 month prior to foaling.
Absolutely no problems with this. My vet does strongly suggest the one month prior to foaling time frame as the mare will need to build up antibodies to her new surroundings (i.e., then passes them along to her foal in the colostrum) and according to my vet, one month is the minimum time frame for this to happen.

I generally always like to have my mares foal at a breeding farm with 24-hour personnel and a vet on staff. I am a wonderful mother, but a lousy nurse!

The mares always seem to get thru the foaling process just fine, I on the other hand end up being a wreck. Much better for me to let them foal with experienced personnel that don't need tranquilizers and tequila to get them thru the experience!
I am just a trainwreck at foaling time, I think I cause my poor mares more stress!

The day after, I am ready to roll as a new mom! I just don't "birth babies" too well :-)
