Effects of weather on mare going into labor?
Does anyone know if weather has an effect on a mare going into labor?
Ive heard numerous people before say that when there is a big storm coming, they worry about their mares going into labor. I've read numerous facebook posts saying something along the lines of "well a huge snow storm is coming so i predict she will foal in the middle of it..."
Is there any truth to this?
I googled this somewhat and found that mares will sometimes delay labor is weather is bad or carry the foal longer if it is a colder time of year but nothing that directly answers my question...
I know you see a lot more colic episodes during weather changes due to pressure, but wasn't sure if this had an affect on labor?
