Barn Cam

While you’re checking in on Friday and her foal, we would appreciate your vote for our ranch in USA Today’s “Best Dude Ranch” contest.

Welcome to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch barn cam!

We are expecting just one foal this spring. Friday is due to foal in the next couple of weeks. We will post updates here as her time to foal draws nearer.

All four of our 2016 expecting mares foaled successfully and our four foals are growing up happy and healthy. Please enjoy the photos of our 2016 foals!

Friday, an Appaloosa mare, and daughter of the ranch matriarch mare gave birth to a little red roan colt we call The Hulk.  This little guy is as cute as they come and is working hard to keep up with his big brother and sister.

Lady, a Percheron mare due to foal the second weekend in May, had a beautiful gray filly.  We named this Percheron x Quarter Horse filly Wonder Woman and we are excited to watch this one grow.

Snip, a Quarter Horse mare that belongs to Libby foaled at 4:30 am on May 1st and is a healthy Dun colt named Dually.  Isaac and Libby are very excited about their new little horse!

This barn cam was running during the days we anxiously awaited the arrival Julie’s first foal, a long-legged sorrel colt we named Spider. The barn cam was able to capture his birth at 12:30 am on April 26.

    You may have noticed a change in horses in the pen. We are now expecting Friday to foal in a few days.

      Where do all the new mamas and their foals go after they leave the foaling pen? Is there a nursery pasture?

        Right now Julie and Spidarman are at the breeder. The other two mares and foals are out in the pasture. Check out our facebook page (Western Pleasure Guest Ranch) for a super cute video of Wonder Women experiencing her first plunge in the water.

You were all amazing, right on it too! I saw that you checked the placenta…..and helping baby to his/her feet…..showing him/here where to suckle…and the mare–WHAT A GREAT MAMA!!!! Amy Schecterson LOVES the barn-cam!

    Lady caught us off guard and delivered in broad day light. Thanks to a web cam viewer we rushed to the pen just as Lady was getting up. She delivered a beautiful BIG filly.

        Hi Sherri,
        Yes we were able to see the birth on the barn cam. although she was facing the camera so it wasn’t the best view. Mom (Janice) was there at the barn with Julie.
