Broodmares | Foaling Service
For foaling, mares are ideally brought to us no later than four weeks prior to foaling, so that they can get used to everything before they go into labor.
The pregnant mare goes out on the paddock during the day and is expecting birth at night in a large foaling stall. When birth is close, this stable is equipped with a birth alarm or surveyed by a video camera. After the imprinting phase between mare and foal they go to pasture together with other mares and foals in a herd.
If necessary, we are always in close contact with a veterinarian experienced in foaling.
