I recently aquired an 11 hand Welsh mare, who is in foal. From the bits and pieces of info I have obtained, I know that she is a maiden, due in two months, and bred herself to a 14.3hh Arab stallion.

I have some experience with larger mares in foal, but none whatsoever with ponies. Are they more prone to difficulties while foaling? My vet is already aware of her, and I'll have his number on speed dial! Just wondering if there was any specific red flags I should be looking for?

Thanks very much.

No. Proceed as per normal. Supplementary feed as per the bigger horses to get the minerals and macrominerals into the rapidly growing foal and don't let mare get fat (adipose tissue I mean) as fat mares more likely to experience dystocia. Don't forget to worm the dam and give tetanus shot 1 month prior to expected due date to confer passive T immunity to the foal for its first 12 weeks. Good luck, hope all goes well for her/you.
