Red Sack Foal Delivery

The Body of the Horse
This section is all about what happens in and on the horse from nose to tail. It is divided into systems.

If you can;’t find a topic you are looking for, drop me a note in the contact section.

These photos have captions to express any thoughts I have on the picture. The idea here is for YOU to get ideas, so grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy. I have more shots and I’ll add them later as I have time.

Click on any picture to see it in full size with the captions. Please enjoy and add any questions or comments below.

I have not added content to this post yet BUT there is a video here to learn from. This video will tell you how you alone can minimize the damage by recognizing a red sack delivery and taking immediate action.

If you have never been responsible for a mare delivering her foal before then this is the one thing to learn before she is due. The equipment you need is a pair of pointed scissors or a sharp knife. That’s it. You DO NOT have time to call the vet because every minute that passes will affect the foal even to the point of its’ death.

If you want me to move this post to the top of the list, please say so in a comment below. Thanks, Doc T
