Miniature horses are a man made breed and breeding the mares is a huge responsibility. They’re known to have foaling problems and it’s vital that they be monitored and watched like a hawk .They shouldn’t deliver alone.
When we were breeding minis, it didn’t take us long to figure out that we needed a better system for watching the mares. Horses have an 11 month gestation, and it can go several weeks either way. We would start watching a mare a few weeks before her due date, and sometimes they would go a few weeks past their due date, leaving us (me) sleepless and miserable. Our solution was a CCTV. We put the camera in the foaling stall, and the monitor in the house. What an improvement! It made mare stare so much easier.
Nowadays, there are webcams. People are setting up their webcams and streaming them live on the internet so that anyone can watch their mare foal. Some of them have message boards so cam watchers are able to chat while they watch.
Here are some links to miniature horse webcams. I guarantee that you’ll be fascinated, and maybe hooked on watching and waiting for that foal.
