    Default Caslick.....how far before foaling do you open them?

    When do you recommend opening them?

    Recommendations appreciated!

    Thanks

    I do mine at around 30 days before foaling.

    Definitely don't want to wait until the mare trys to foal and rips it. 30 days prior. Mares don't foal on a human timetable. May go "early", may go "late". They foal when they and the foal are ready.
