Foaling Fees

Foaling Services and Fees 2019

Pool House Equine Clinic is able to offer an on-site foaling service. For a fixed fee your mare will stay with us for the final stages of her pregnancy and will be monitored by our stud team 24 hours a day. Your mare will stay in one of our dedicated foaling stables equipped with CCTV cameras. This enables us to monitor the mare through the night without physically disturbing her. In addition to CCTV monitoring, mares are also fitted with a stitch in foaling alarm which notifies the team at the onset of second stage labour ensuring that we will always be present to assist the birth as required.
