REQUIREMENTS FOR PREGNANT MARES ARRIVING FOR FOALING SERVICES: Foaling mares should arrive approximately 4 to 6 weeks prior to their estimated foaling date. This allows mares to settle in mentally as well as giving her immune system time to adjust to new surroundings. This is also important so that the antibody content of the colostrum is  adjusted to benefit the new foal.

Foaling mares should receive vaccinations boosters for the abortive form of rhino on their 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th months of pregnancy. We are also recommending vaccinations for Rotavirus on the 8th, 9th and 10th months of pregnancy. This help prevent a contagious form of diarrhea which affects foals.

Pre-foaling boosters are generally given 4 to 6 weeks prior to the estimated foaling date. These usually consist of annual vaccination boosters. Check with you veterinarian on what is recommended for your area. Remember: RABIES SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN TO PREGNANT MARES !!
