Foaling—What to expect with your foaling mare

Below is a timetable of what to expect when your mare foals. If anything does not occur in the time frame below CALL OUR OFFICE IMMEDIATELY!

  1. The mare will break water first—she is now in labor. The foal should be on the ground within ½ hour.
  2. The foal should stand within 1 hr of being born.
  3. The foal should nurse within 2 hours of being born.
  4. The mare should pass the placenta in one piece within 4 hours.

Once the foal is born, if everything has gone according to the above plan, call our office to arrange an appointment to check the mare and foal.

They will need to be checked approximately 24 hours after foaling to check that the foal got the proper immunities from the colostrum and that the placenta was passed whole and without tears. Save the placenta in a cool area (away from dogs and coyotes) for the examination by a Veterinarian.
