Re: Pregant horses

Hi Rose,

I have a wonderful book for you filled with pictures and easy-to-understand descriptions of what to expect during your mare's pregnancy, labor, and foaling. Also, help is provided with taking initial care of the newborn foal. So, you will find this extrememly helpful -- The Complete Foaling Manual.

Happy Foaling!
