Lucky Timing!

The weather really helped us out yesterday, it was a little chilly but we managed to get our 10 pregnant mares down to the barn. They spend the summer months on pasture where they can just hang out and be horses. We like to get them in to the barn where we can keep a close eye on them when they get close to foaling. To get the 10 mares down from pasture we had to do some minor rearranging (like all of the other horses on the farm) to make the necessary space in the right places.

Once down to the barn each mare gets a nice stall to spend the night in with daily turnout. Night checks are a little easier when you aren't chasing the horses around in a pasture in the dark! Now all we have to do is wait, which is the toughest part of all when you get this close to foaling.
