Horse Trivia #10
More foals are born between April 15 and May 15 than at any other time.
Mares usually foal at night.
Foaling mares don’t like being watched. They will stop foaling and wait till a person leaves.
A mare may give birth in as little as 15 minutes, but usually no longer than an hour.
If a mare is still straining after an hour has passed, something is seriously wrong.
If you have to help pull a foal out, NEVER pull up! Always pull down, toward the mares feet.
