 Foals are dropping everywhere!  Besides the most important factor in that you should be there to attend the foaling-out.  We wash the mares udder and general areas once she is standing prior to the foal nursing with warm water and mild ivory soap to insure that the first nursing attempts are within a fairly clean environment.  We collect a sample of colostrum (mares first milk) and weigh it to ascertain if the foal has a good chance of obtaining the immunity that it needs during the first hours of life. (Colostrometer)   We administer Ivomectin wormer to the mare prior to the foal nursing-it has been shown that this aids in the prevention of foal-heat scours.  No one can give me an explanation as to why but we have tried it last year and it does make a difference.  Maybe not 100% of the foals but a high number ratio of them. We administer 5 cc of penicillin to the foal, usually before he stands to nurse and coat the umbilicus with diluted iodine.  Some farms use novalsan dilution but here in Fl we have less navel issues with old-fashioned iodine..   We then observe until the foal is up and starting to suckle and then head back to the house (and sleep). It is a priority on the following morning (within 12 hours of foaling) that the blood be drawn on the foal and the IGG testing be done.  This is a test that can easily be done on-farm and will tell you if your foal has had adequate transfer of immunity from your mare through the milk.  Please advise your vet in advance to be sure they have the testing available.
