If you’ve never had the chance to watch a foal born, tune in to one of the many farms that use MareStare and live vicariously.
According to their Website:
Mare Stare is a family — a community of cam owners and viewers who help each other share the miracle of birth. The camera owners graciously put their foaling barns on line for the world to see. In exchange, they get the watchful eyes of viewers from all over the world, who will call them as soon as their mare goes into labor.
As a reward for their vigilance, the viewers get to see the birth live. Then, they get to watch the foal stand for the first time, take the first drink of life-giving milk from its mother, and run, play, and grow stronger day by day, as many owners share the progress and development of their foals with our community.
I watched a newly born foal earlier this evening and I’ve been checking in on this one, but there are farms all over the world that participate.
