I am currently watching my mare on camera from my house. I have someone who can get to the barn in 2 minutes but i am about 1/2 hour away. I am getting close to just sleeping at the barn but I think I am a few days away from that. Here is my question. There is always a chance that I will catch her breaking her water on the camera. Its a little unclear over the low res. camera so how can i tell if she is just peeing or breaking water? I am assuming that water breaking will be longer? any suggestions?

Passage of allantoic fluid ("water") will tend to occur in response to uterine contractions, so there will tend to be multiple series of "squirts" rather than the more prolonged and uninterrupted passage of urine during urination.

It can however sometimes be difficult to tell, especially if you are trying to watch it over a monitor - the mare may not present her back end towards the camera!

Thanks Jos
I have a pretty good position on the camera, its up high and kind of pointed down at her. Plus the audio on it is great so I think sound will be a big factor. I will keep my eyes and ears open for this!

The sound will help you immensely. Most of my mares break their water lying down, and if the mare is on straw, you'll never see it....but you will hear it,and you'll know the diff b/w it and peeing! It s a huge RUSH of water at first.
