This is an example of a perfect foal birth.  This is Way Cool foaling out her grulla filly starting at 8:15 April 24th, 2011.

Early morning 4/24 she had wax on her nipples.  We had a pretty good idea it would be that night.  About 8:15pm, she started pacing and kicking at her stomach.  8:35 her water broker.

Two hoofs (souls down) can be seen inside the bag.
Note: If a "red bubble" is seen its an emergency.
Cut with knife and pull foal out ASAP. No time to call Vet.
