This maiden mare was having difficulty foaling yesterday. She was in second stage labor longer than she should have been, about 30 minutes, so I gave her a little help. She probably would have foaled on her own but I felt like it was time for me to step in. And yes I caught the foal before she hit the ground! Both mare and filly are doing great today.

I created the Horse Side Vet Guide Smartphone app to help you know what to do when you are faced with situations like this and don't have a vet there to help you.
