My neighbor came over to ask me all kinds of questions about horses giving birth. I have had 2 of our mares give birth in our barn a few years back and could answer most of her questions. I had the advantage of someone staying home when their due dates were close so I didn’t have to worry. She is worried about what might happen if she was on call for work that day. She and her boyfriend both work as nurses at a local hospital and most of the time she has a decent schedule but occasionally she is “on-call”.
Her mare is due this coming May so I told her to relax and I am just a phone call away, if she needs me.
