Thank you for taking the time to make this thread. I am sure it will be a life saver for many many babies and it will give lots of newbies that vital info they might just need.

Thank you Aunites.

Thank you.  We're very serious about helping these little ones get safely to the ground.  You might want to print the article out and pin it up in the stall.  Even with good neighbors, sometimes little things get forgotten in the craziness of the moment.  And all these things have worked -- here on the threads you'll see the results -- so I'm glad it helped you.  Don't be afraid, the key is to read, read and re-read again, so things are up front in your mind.  Even if something does happen -- and we don't expect it to, so don't worry -- you just want to be prepared and ready to act.  Make sure your foaling kit has lubricant in it -- even K-Y jelly will work from the drugstore -- as many times we forget to add that to the kit.

 

We're praying for uneventful births of healthy little ones, but we always want to be prepared in case our ladies need us.  :yes

I'm printing this and putting it on top of my foaling kit in a laminate pouch! If my mare is indeed pregnant, I will be the only one within 10-15 minutes drive that can help her! I want all the helpful reference material I can find, and this has been amazing!

WOW! Thank you for the FANTASTIC information! I have assisted in and observed many dystocias in my years working on a quarter horse ranch and raising my own. I have seen almost all of these and have tried explaining to my fill-in midwife (my mother who is not well versed in dystocias) what they are and how to correct them if I am not there (for whatever reason). This article puts it so succinctly and clearly that I am confident she could understand and perform the actions recommended. Thank you so very much for this FANTASTIC article!
