Knowing when a mare will foal is a great way to help prepare. There are several new technologies available but not many are as low-tech and simple to use as these little babies. The FullBucket pH Foaling Indicator Strips (FIS) provide a very clever way of determining how close your mare is to foaling.
EACH PACKET CONTAINS 18 STRIPS - MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ONE FOALING
Directions for Use:
Retrieve a small amount of milk from the mare in question. (Enough to wet the pH strip paper – usually a few drops) Tear off a small portion of paper (1 to 2 inches) and apply the milk directly to the paper.
The paper will instantly change color. Compare the color on the paper to the color chart provided with the kit. (Instructions are also located on the kit pouch.)
Now you know.
