Foaling Mare and NewbornUploader: Gogis 4 month ago Subscribe 10
The estrous cycle is divided into two periods, estrus and diestrus. Therefore, a mare may have ovulated from the right ovary, but the pregnancy may be detected within the uterine body or left uterine horn. Wrap the mare's tail with a clean wrap when you observe the first stage of labor. The cervix of a diestrus or pregnant mate will be "whitish" in color and lack the moist appearance. If you notice hoof soles up, the foal may be backwards or upside down, and you should call your veterinarian immediately.
