Most mares foal at night

Most mares foal at night, which is thought to be a survival adaptation, since the foal should be ready to run by their mom by daylight. Although the modern stables try to establish the most nurturing and calm environment, especially during foaling season, there is no beating mother nature! Foaling alarms and installed cameras can help you stay alert, but the safest option is always the regular checks and attentive care! Noticing the tiniest signs of foaling and knowing your mare can help cutting down on your sleepless nights. 🥱
