Hello all,

I am new to this board and i have 1 pregnant mare due in March of 09 her name is Gypsy Queen. I have some questions as this is my first time breeding a horse. She is a Morgan and is bred to a Freisian stallion. She is due between March 12-18 i am starting to prepare the foaling stall and pasture for her now before winter hits. My 1st question is should i keep her alone or with the other mares until she foals? I have 2 pony mares that she can be with as i feel she should not be in with the geldings is this ok? Also the pasture that i am setting up will be electric fencing the wider strand of Tape fencing would this be ok for the foal? I don't want to put any wire as i don't want the foal to be injured with it. The pasture would be attached to the foaling stall which is 17 1/2 x 12 she is 14 hands tall so not very big horse per say.

Welcome Ivette! I was a newbie like you last year. Is your mare a maiden? I would agree with puting her in with the 2 pony mares and not the gelding. A month before she is due, I would put her by herself in her foaling stall. Speaking from experience with using electric tape only as a means of confinement, I wouldn't suggest it! It is pretty safe, but no guarantee to keep them in if something scares them bad enough. My run off my foaling stall is non-climb horse fence with electric tape. http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa97/mollytomale-photos/Jetta%20in%20March%20 08/0330081649a.jpg I had them in this for about the first 3 weeks. Then I tried putting them in an area of just electric tape, something scared my filly, and she ran right through it. Luckily I was right there when it happened and caught up my mare right away and her filly followed back to their run off the barn. Do you have any pics of your mare and the stud she is bred to you can share with us?

She has had 2 previous foals with other people this would be her first and only with me as i am not a breeder nor pretend to be i bred her for my replacement riding/dressage horse.As far as the pasture thing this pasture is confined within my property so if the foal did break thru the fence it would still be in the property with no where to go i still feel this would be safer than wire fencing for sure. The pasture is too big to put up that type of fencing you have in that picture and it would cost a fortune to do since i am dealing with about 5 acres of just the pasture for the mare and foal. Thanks for the info.

Here is a pic or my mare and the sire.

If the rest of your property is fenced, than I think electric tape would be fine. Your mare is cute! The other two pics you posted didn't work though.

Welcome Ivette,

Post pictures of your mare we would love to see her! If your mare and the pony mares are pasture mates that is fine...You just would not want to introduce anyboy new to avoiding kicking injuries or food fights. Your set up sounds good. What type of bedding are you going to use?

Ivette I think youve done your research and have it pretty well figured out It is so nice that your area is so lg it provides a wonderful clean place for them to be. I suggest straw bedding and leaving her with her pony friends until a month- 2 wks before delivery

I thought of using straw bedding as i have read that shavings is a no no for a foal. On the pics of the stud if you copy the link and paste it in the address bar it will take you to the pictures i am not sure why they did not work when i posted them on here.

Ivette, leave her with the pony mares until you notice her separating herself from them. Usually, about a month before foaling, then tend to separate themselves from the herd....they graze a little further away, and start backing ears when others come near....i'd do it then.

Ivette your mare and her stud are gorges! I can't wait to see your baby.

Charleen, I noticed you mentioned that a pregnant mare should not be turned out with a gelding. My preg. mare is turned out with my gelding every day.Should I be worried about my guys? They have been pasture mates for 4 yrs. I do plan to have a run off my mares stall and restrict her there 1 mo to 2 weeks befor foaling.

Diane I keep all my horses together. Swan was with the boys up tell 2 months before foaling. (Only because she kept showing me signs.) They were separated for about a month with same fence. My boys loved Sky from the beginning and after I introduced them I have never had a problem. Leave them together and let them be happy.

Tahra, Thanks for the reassurance. I plan to keep Mom and baby separate for a few weeks. I expect Mom will show me when she is comfortable with the Big Guy near the baby with fencing in between. I use electric rope fencing, my horses are used to it and never challenge it. It is fairly easy to put up and take down. The perimeter of my property is also fenced. Will it be alright for the foal?

I think it should be ok. I find that baby will learn from mom alot. They will chalenge it but by the time they do they are a little older and use to runing to mom for comfort.

Diane, I also let my mare run with my gelding and other mares up until about 1 month before foaling. The mare let me know when she was comfortable letting the others get close since they are just across the fence. When she quit being agressive towards them thru the fence I put her back out. I also have electric tape up and the colt did great. He has never went thru it. I saw him walk up to it once and touch it with his nose. He got a shock and never went back. He learned quicker than the older ones

Hi Ivette...yes she is showing...the fun is soon to come!!

I have quite a few horses starting with 6 broodmares, foals, yearlings, 2 yr olds, retired horses and geldings. All are pastured. I move them around all through the year depending on what is going on. Right now the broodmares that are foaling in the spring are in a separate pasture along with a couple of weaned fillies (not with their mothers), and 2 two year olds I am feeding differently than the others. In the other field there is a mix of weanlings, retired mares, 2 year olds, one not in foal brood mare and a gelding. I look at each horse to see where they should be kept depending on their condition, sex, their temperament, and their special needs...i.e., pregnant, show horse, sale horse, thin, fat, aggressive etc. For example the more aggressive 2 year old is with the older horses who keep her in line, the more passive one is with the youngsters where she has more self esteem....

It is a big job to juggle the social order but I find the horses teach each other a lot and they tell me if they are happy with the choices I make for them. I watch them together every day and pay close attention to how they are getting along. It affects everything about the individual's health so I tweak the composition of the mini herds often.

Very interesting Terry. I do the same thing. In fact I went and purchased another youngster to be with Asia who is a 4 month old orphin. I felt my other horses were not a good match for her personality. This new yearling is perfectly matched with Asia and I'm very pleased with the order of things right now. :-)

I was thinking of doing that too. I am going to go save a baby before i wean my foal so it can have a buddy close to it's age to play-socialize with. I think this is a good thing.

Ok i need advice on this please. We are working on the foaling stall and my husband and i are being indifferent on this issue so any advise would be appreciated. All i can say is that in my opinion the wood should be on the inside of the door! he says it's fine the way it is. I will be showing him this post so please be honest and tell us what you think we need more impute from more experienced folks/breeders!

Ivette, I don't see how putting the wood on the inside would make it any different. There is no gap, and no way the baby can get caught in it.

The rake looks like more of a hazard than the wood! Just kidding! I think the wood on the inside would definitely have a more seamless feel, but it should serve its purpose either way.

Ivette we use wood on our gates and attach it to the inside of the stall. We do this in case the mare or foal gets cast and the wood is less likely to come loose and a foot get trapped. The only other issue I see is the gap at the bottom of the door. We usually place a 2X 4 or a 2 X 6 depending on the gate height to cover this gap so that if the baby lays down in front of the door its legs don't accidentally get caught under it. But yall have done a beautiful job on the stall!!

Ivette, I agree with Suzanne. We always put the wood on the inside as we have had several horses kick or get cast and push the wood off if it is on the outside of the gate or panel. Your stall looks great, excellent job!! How is Gypsy doing?

Yes, the gate would be safer with the wood on the inside. Make sure however you attach it to the gate that there are no obstacles such as bolts or nuts sticking out the foal could catch an eye on or otherwise injure itself. I did the same thing with a piece of plywood on the inside of my gate and attached it with Ubolts from the inside to the outside, then cut off the remainder of the bolt that stuck out past the nuts, which were self tapping, and then to be even more safe, we ground down the ends of the bolts so there were no rough edges. When the gate is open into the paddock, the horses have no way of injuring themselves on the bolts are facing towards the outside of the gate. (It swings outward to open up into the paddock)
Only other thing is build up the part of the stall under the gate so that the foal does not get a leg stuck under and panick and snap a bone trying to get up. You can do this with an additional piece of lumber or build up the stall bottom with additional stone dust and rubber mats.

Cam is up and running now we where having some technical difficulties but hopefully now it's all fixed. Just keep in mind i am on satellite so if the wind blows too hard the signal may be gone for a sec but it should restart automatically so be patient. It does not help we have had 25 mile an hour winds the past couple of days either lol... She is out in the pasture right now with another horse. Thanks for watching.

Hello everyone just wanted to give you all an update. Gypsy is still holding on to that baby. Not sure what she is waiting on but as long as baby is healthy it's all that matters. She is driving me with sleepless nights it's as if she knows i am watching and she is playing with my head. Silly mare.

Kathee he has that silver shade to his coat so he will be black black. The lights in the stall make him look different. His mom is black but she fades in the sun a bit not alot just some.

Thank you for the comments on him he is everything i have asked for so i am very happy with how it all turned out.
