    [color:blue] [/color] When is enough , enough. My neighbor has been on foal watch of sorts. They had a beer drinking party every night since the due date 3/23. That was the extent of the foal watching. Now that the foal was born sometime before 6 am.
    Atleast thats when they found it. They have not left that poor mare alone. Here it is more than 10 hour since the birth and they have walked away only long enough to go to the bathroom. I was always told that you do your imprinting if you choose then let the mare bond. :confused: [color:red] [/color]

    Everybody deals with their horse differently. I don't see how it's any of your business what you neighbor does with their horses. They aren't harming either horse in anyway by being there. I'd suggest you keep your nose on your side of the fence.

    You don't have to leave to let them bond, I never left with Zoey or Magnum and both times the mare bonded excellent and both babies were imprinted great. The beer is my only concern.

    I keep a very close watch on my new foals for the first day. I like to see them up nursing, pass the first manure and dip the navel. And making sure that the mare and foal bond. I've had alot of foals and they are always cute and precious, but I don't spend every minute with them. This may be their first foal and are therefore very excited about having the new addition. I was the same way. I wouldn't worry to much. The excitement of the new baby will wear off and then momma and baby will have all the time in the world to fuss over each other.
