I need some advise i may have to trailer the mare and foal 24 hrs post foaling to my vet for the igg test and such as he does not go out to where i live the reason i used this vet is because he is the best in the area and specializes in equine repro. I have been taking my mare to him for everything. I know i would need to remove the partitions in my trailer i have a featherlight 3 horse so there should be plenty of room for mare and foal. Should i put shavings down for bedding? Also do i tie the mare or not?

Hi Ivette,

Welcome to the board! Can't wait to see your foal! I had to move my mare home from the hospital she foaled at with her newborn and I was a nervous wreck they on the other had were fine. Just make sure you have help to get mom with baby safely ushered right behind her. As long as mom can see the baby she should be fine just nickering softly. We bedded the trailer with straw, made a nice soft bed. The foal just curled up in the straw. I did tie mom. We had about an 1 hour drive. We took mom out first and baby followed....I think you will do fine.

Awesome thank you as i was really worried about that it's about a 45 min ride so it should not be too bad and the mare is a good girl and a great mom so no worries there. She has had 2 previous foals this would be her 3rd but first with me.

Thank you i am really excited about this foal! This will hopefully be my one and only attempt at breeding and i have been lucky she took on the first try AI My plans for this foal are for dressage and trails just my main ride if you know what i mean. I currently ride a NSH so by the time this baby is ready to be trained he will be up there in age and i want to give him a good retirement when the time comes.

Here is a side shot of Jan when we went to drop of the mare. This stallion has the best disposition and soooo sweet as is the mare so i am sure this baby is going to be very good as far as temperment goes.

He wanted scratches from my hubby in this pic mind you he was surrounded by mares and all he wanted was petted.
