Foaling in February – Prevent Hypothermia

Foaling early in the year is common, and it is essential to keep a new foal warm and dry after birth. Schneiders has several great options for your foal!

UltraFlex Foal Saver

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®
Our Foal Saver® has Tekno-Dri® lining to help finish drying the newborn foal’s coat after birth and prevent hypothermia. It has additional layers of polarfleece and fiberfill insulation for warmth and moisture transport. The outer cover is high count cotton so that you can wash it repeatedly. The expandable Velcro front and Velcro bellyband fastening allows you to expand the fit as the foal grows. It also features a comfortable stretch shoulder. It is available in four sizes to fit any breed of foal, from Miniature to Warmblood!

From a customer in Doylestown, PA -
“I have 5 of these for my foaling facility. Wash in cold water, line dry, no bleach but oxiclean is OK for manure stains. Great for weak or preemie foals, keeps their body temperature up. Take care to adjust belly velcro strap away from foal’s umbilical stump, and watch that colts do not pee inside that strap. My foal blanket wardrobe numbers in the dozens, and the UltraFlex Foal Savers are my go-to choice, with Schneider’s Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer my 2nd choice because of its stay-put, snugly adjustable nature.”
