Little King Foaling DVD
Little King Farms Foaling DVD
Little King Farm has foaled out more than 2000 foals over the last 30 years. Marianne Eberth and her daughter Robin Mingione are more experienced than most vets. They are not veterinarians but they share their vast knowledge with you in this 151-minute DVD set, providing a very realistic view of what is expected from you when you are in charge of foaling your Miniature and Shetland mares.
Marianne and Robin begin with preparing for the birth. Signs of impending birth are discussed along with dos and don'ts. Stages of labor, actual delivery, and post partum care are covered in detail. Marianne discusses emergencies and the two foaling kits that they always have on hand. Foaling positions are shown and they discuss the proper way to correct problems for each position. Dystocia and red bag deliveries are explained. Causes of in utero deaths and retained placentas are also discussed. They explain colostrum and the time frames involved in absorption by the foal. No-suck foals are explained and solutions given. Robin concludes with graphic examples of foals who have been born dead and explains the reasons for their death.
