Late Foals
« on: May 21, 2012, 02:13:39 pm »
How uncommon is it for a foal to be 12 days late in the game?  I had a mare due on 5/9, and still no baby today.  Everything's okay, right?

I believe foals can be up to 6 weeks early/late, so 12 days isn't too long over a due date (late, but we've had later!).

Yes, one of my mares was a month late, unfortunately she died during birth :( but the foal survived.

Okay, thanks.  I know IRL it's pretty common, just wasn't sure about in-game.

My mare Highland Grace was due on 5/1 and just foaled yesterday on 5/20. Both mare and foal were fine, so just depends.

Plus, the vet might've been drunk when they gave you the due date. They're just as bad as the jocks some times.
