For further questions or advice on foaling please contact your veterinarian.
February is here and foaling season has begun. If you have never bred horses, we’ve compiled some basic information to educate you on the foaling process! Here are some interesting facts:
1. Normal gestation for mares is 305 to 395 days, with an average of 340 days. The factors that can influence the length of gestation include the age of the mare, the time of year, genetics of the foal, stress, infection and nutrition. Light breeds tend to have longer gestation periods than draft breeds.
2. A mare in early labor resembles a colicky horse as she may get up and down, sweat and paw. The difference is that she will grab bites to eat, whereas a colicky horse is generally not interested in food.
3. A mare in active labor should take a maximum of 30 minutes to deliver a foal after her water breaks.
4. After birth, the mare may lay on the ground for 10 to 20 minutes. This is nature’s way of making sure the foal gets its full blood supply. As much as 25 to 35 percent of the foal’s blood is in the placenta at birth.
5. The mare’s first milk (colostrum) contains ingredients crucial to the foal’s health and survival. A foal that nurses soon after birth is more lively and strong than one that delays nursing.

Ariat Ladies Brossard Zip Paddock Boots
Once I bought a pair of Ariat’s waterproof, full grain leather insulated boots I never turned back. Not only are they sharp looking, but the 200 grams of Thinsulate insulation keep me warm through the entire winter. They’ve been through thick and thin over the span of several years, and still clean up well. These winter paddock boots feature a neoprene lined suede collar, gusseted tongue, rounded toe and Duratread outsole.
TuffRider Snow Rider Zip Paddock Boots
These paddock boots are comfortable and practical, featuring Dupont Comfortmax Classic insulation. They contain a footbed lined with PU waterproof membrane and have ultra grippy outsoles to prevent slipping on icy terrain. They are perfect for riding and for barn work!
Ariat Ladies Brossard Tall Boots
A tall boot version of the Brossard Paddock, these tall boots feature waterproof full grain leather with suede and neoprene uppers. They contain the same 200 grams Thinsulate insulation, with moisture wicking lining. They also have a full-length back zipper for convenience!
TuffRider Snow Rider Tall Boots
Also an extension of the TuffRider Snow Rider Paddock, they feature the same Dupont Comfortmax Classic insulation. They have a stretch-calf gusset and neoprene ankle flex and the upper lining is a durable mesh with PUFoam and tricot. Waterproof with a grippy sole.

Previously we shared our favorite winter tops for this season’s outerwear. Today we bring you Schneiders’ favorite winter gloves! (I don’t know about you, but I used to always complain about my hands being cold in the wintertime!)
Mountain Horse Avoriaz Gloves
These gloves are my favorite. They are durable, and the inside hand and between the fingers is reinforced. They feature a warm knitted cuff, with an adjustable wrist strap with snap to keep out the cold and snow. “Mountain Horse” is embroidered on the index fingers, and the top of the hand features a slim reflective strip. Whether you’re doing barn work or riding, these gloves will serve you well.
Ovation Micro-Fibre Gloves
If your looking for an economical glove similar in style to the Avoriaz gloves, check out Ovation’s Micro-Fibre Gloves. They feature a Micro-Fiber exterior with Thinsulate lining, suede palm and finger grips. Schneiders carries both Ladies and Childrens sizes.
This week Schneiders is going to help you dress for cold weather from head to toe! Proper outerwear makes the difference between a pleasant season and a miserable winter. Consider the following so you can enjoy the snow and your horses this year!
Today we’re featuring the best winter tops from several of our favorite retailers.
Ariat Taft Jacket
This jacket has a poly blend shell that is wind and water resistant, contains polyfill insulation and features diamond quilting and ribbed cuffs at the wrists. It features a front zipper closure with traditional pockets and chest pockets. It is offered in blue or gunmetal, in sizes small through xx-large. Style on while beating the cold!
Mountain Horse Regal Down Vest
This vest is one of my personal favorites. The quilted pattern with duck down fill is classy looking and effective when the temperature drops. It has a front zipper closure with an extra-tall collar to block out the wind. Mountain Horse spared no expense when it came to details – this vest features an intricately embroidered crest that traditionalists would die for, and “Mountain Horse” is embroidered across the back of the tall collar. Four color choices, Snow White, Royal Red, Sassy Orange and Carbon Black, ensure that you can coordinate with any wardrobe!
Goode Rider Ideal ¼ Zip Shirt
This close fitting cotton/lycra knit love sleeve shirt is a perfect layering piece for winter. It has an anti-pill finish with a zip-front mock neck. We love the streamlined silhouette, and I personally love the snaffle bit zipper detail. It is offered in White, Winter White (off-white), Olive, Chocolate and Black in sizes small through x-large. It is certainly the “ideal” shirt whether you are riding or out around town.
