JENNETS TEAT PHOTOS CLOSE TO FOALING

(RETURN TO JENNETS ) (RETURN TO FOALS )

Since meeting my friend, Dayle Haworth of Half Ass Acres in America, I also now always photograph our jennies teats & bags close to foaling.

lt is a great tool to help gauge their actual foaling day. We hand serve, but mother nature doesn't always read 'The Text Book of Foaling '. Jennies can foal anywhere from a month pre their due date, to a month over. We have observed jennies foaling 3 weeks either side of their due date at Poplargrove Stud.

We also have foaling alarms on our Jennies when they are close to foaling. With experience, you can usually tell which night/s to be on foal watch, stay home & be alert. Teat changes, behavior, white milk, there so many indictors.

BUT... they can always fool you. Even the most experienced breeder can find themselves with an unexpected foal standing next to it's dam one morning. Hence the alarms are great...

We have cameras in our stables but we do not tend to stable the jennets until post birth. We have found our girls prefer to foal outside with their friends close by. The more relaxed the jenny is, the happier the event for her.

These teat & bag photos, along with health & foaling records of our jennies are a great reference for future foaling !

We have included these photos in the hope that they may help you with your jennies birthing process!

Ma Bell very bagged up. Half way down her tummy and bag tight as a drum. l think tonight if not today. Went last stage so fast....
4 pm. A lot of tail swishing and standing alone going on. Does not like me feeling her teats. l would think by her teats another day or two maybe, but she bagged this far up so fast. Tonight would not surprise me...
Feeding time her teats were not hard enough. But last night - l would have thought not for a good week or more .. so ?

My notes from 8/5/14 'Teats not doing much. Seems to be on track for a couple of weeks away yet.'

Then the 9th 'Juliets teats getting harder'

28/1/14 - just starting to ever so faintly bag up on her tummy glands RHS

1/3/14 Got a little bag, only very small, biggish tummy glands. All going well. She's been setting the foal alarm off laying down a bit the past three nights.
