Welcome to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch foaling cam! This barn cam will be active during our 2020 foaling season. This year we have three pregnant mares. The first, Pali, is due to foal on April 28th. Rosie is due May 16th and Julie is due May 24th. The cam will run throughout our foaling season.
In the Spring of 2019, we had 2 mares due to foal. We were pleased to welcome two fillies to the ranch; a palomino and a buckskin who we named Bobbin and Button.
In the Spring of 2018, we had 5 mares in foal. All foaled out without mishap. We had two maiden mares in that bunch so we were happy that they took right to motherhood. Our five 2018 foals are healthy and growing like weeds!
We had just one foal in the spring of 2017. Friday gave birth to a beautiful black with blanket and spots stud colt. “Ned” as we call him around the barn, is a very friendly and curious little guy with lots of personality. Guests enjoy our dinners around the campfire when Ned comes out on the lawn and joins us for dinner eating grass alongside the picnic tables.
All four of our 2016 expecting mares foaled successfully and our four foals are growing up happy and healthy.
Feel free to comment or ask questions in the discussion box.
Congratulations to Pali!!
IT'S A GIRL!!! She was born right at midnight and seems to be doing great.
Oh man! I missed it! Congratulations! I've been watching all weekend and of course she sneaks it in. Can't wait to see her!
I was watching Pali up until about midnight when she turned toward the stall and walked in with her tail raised. Hoping all goes well!
Any updates on Pali? The kids and I have been anxiously checking the camera ever since we left the ranch on Sunday!
We have been watching and waiting for Pali to foal. She is several days past due at this time and Rosie is due this Saturday. Hopefully, we have some camera action soon.
Hi Janice & Danielle: I've been watching Pali in anticipation of the new foal. Any imminent signs that she's ready?? She's sure looks quite large and the foal is very low in the belly. Hoping for a successful birth!
I can’t believe it- I follow y’all on Instagram and just saw your post about the live cam link, I followed it here and guess what!!!! I clicked on just in time to watch her foal ? Thanks so much! The baby’s an adorable wiggly one ♥️ And I hope all goes well!!!!
What a nice site this morning. Happy day! I missed it again but enjoyed watching Juile get ready.
Congratulations! What time was the baby born? Looks like I must missed it. It's 6am here.
Baby was born around 3:00. It went pretty fast. Next in the foaling pen is Julie one of our draft mares. Her due date was yesterday, so it could be anytime. We will move her sometime this afternoon.
Thanks, I'll be watching.
Julie had me excited this morning when I got up - she was lying down, thought something was going to happen. Maybe tonight. Probably while I'm sleeping. LOL
Are we close? Or dd I miss i?
Who is in the pen today?
What is that white thing on the ground? It looks like a dead chicken.
Or did she have her foal?
Ohhh, I see the baby now in the corner of the screen. 🙂
It was probably the afterbirth.
Yes, I finally figured it out. Lol I am enjoying this Barn Cam.
Wow this is the latest technology on the cam. I realy want this type of cam. This barn cam is so good. We can say the future is so nice for the cam facility. NIce post also I must say.
We have a little filly born at 11:25 April 30th. We can't wait to watch her grow.
Yay, she is so cute. I see you Janice!! It's 9am my time. I'm at work watching. 🙂
That baby is tired.
Oh wow! how fun! Sorry I missed it. Can't wait to see a picture of her!
Pali is at 341 days gestation today. Most mares foal from 330 - 345 days. I really thought we were going to do it last night, so maybe tonight.
Is she the light colored one in the front pen?
yes Linda she is.
All of our mares have foaled for the 2016 year. We have 3 colts and 1 filly who are happy, healthy and growing like weeds!
Friday delivered a super cute stud colt Tuesday afternoon.
Your 4 babies are getting big! So adorable and healthy! Miss you all and am looking forward to East Side Quilt Retreat 2017!!
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.
OMG, my sister-in-law, Dyan Graham-Schecterson, sent me the link to Barn Cam. While working from home today, I logged in JUST IN TIME to see the foal being born!!! 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!
Just a dog getting a midday snack. lol I wonder how many times my dogs visit the corral without my knowledge and try to give me kisses?
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.
Yay, thank you!
still no foal from Lady. The cam had some slight glitches, but should now be up and running again.
Any update on Lady? I keep getting an Error message on the Barn cam.
The new mare in the foaling pen is Lady. She is due to foal the second weekend in May.
Congratulations! He is so cute!!!
Beautiful baby! Snip and Ranger did amazing! Congratulations on your lil one! What a dandy !
Snips baby arrived at 4:30 am on May 1st!!!
Well Snip is still making us wait. We keep seeing more signs of the closeness of the arrival. Keep watching!
Snip looks really bothered and restless today. (Friday) Soon I think.:)
Yes you are right, we are watching her real close tonight.
You may have noticed that there is a new resident in the foaling pen! Snip has now taken up residence in the foaling pen. She is due to foal any day now.
So beautiful. Miss these moments
Miss you too.
Congratulations to all! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome job Julie!! He is soooooo handsome! "Seam Ripper" is a good name. LOL
We know why she was restless. Finally a beautiful stud colt born at 12:30!
Were you able to see the birth? Were you there?
Sherri Gittel, AKA quilter
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.
Congratulations Julie and WPGR!
Julie seems to be really restless this evening.
Great picture quality! I don't see Julie, but I'm sure she's close by.
Hey girl! I see you are still tricking us.LOL Our quilters will be watching you from afar. I miss your morning snuggles.
except she is Inside again!!!!! lmao !!
Moved it indoor temporarily. Hope that makes Sammy happier 🙂
Danielle says I should call you Sami instead of Sammy. I moved the view back outside. Trying to follow her while I'm watching.
We are back up and running with a new camera! We hope you enjoy the better picture and hopefully we will be able to see what Julie is up to at night.
