What is Smart Foal?
That way you can see for yourself if she is agitated, resting or in early labour.
Why do you need a foal alarm anyway?
Most mares foal between 11pm and 3am. Mares are hardwired to foal at night, but we need our sleep!
Most of us have day jobs. Let’s be honest, staying up all night waiting for your mare to foal is a lot of fun… for the first night. Then the novelty of it really starts to drop. Many of us have jobs, errands to run, kids to get to school. We need to be there when the foal is born, but we also need to function!
Outsourcing makes your life easier. We all want to be there when our mare is in labour but it’s exhausting? Though you may not realise it, your time is money. If you miss work due to sleep deprivation, or can’t perform your usual daily tasks on the farm, you are loosing money. Using a foaling alarm allows your mare to be monitored around the clock and you only need to be notified when ‘something’ happens.

Why should you consider Smart Foal?
Smart Foal is the only alarm that can spot and display pain! This action is strongly linked to contractions! This feature is being rolled out in 2019!
Smart Foal is more than a foaling alarm. Smart Foal can detect more than just “lying flat”. About 80% of mares lie flat when in labour and this is what other alarms look for. Our detection method is so sensitive that we can detect around 95% of foalings.
We have a live activity monitor. By providing you with a live view and history of your mares behaviour you can learn what “normal” is. This is not just useful for birth, but our customers also use Smart Foal for monitoring colic, post-partum bleeds, after dystocia, uterine ruptures, pre/post surgery, placentitis, lethargic foals and malnourished horses who are too weak to stand after lying down.
Ongoing updates. Because of the way our system is designed we can roll out updates easily and without any effort from our users. How does this help you? We regularly update our lying down detection – making it more likely you’ll be present when your mare is in labour. While the web app currently looks for signs of “labour” we can actually move into any other activity-related field we want using all the same hardware.

All I can say is that I’m very happy with the Smart Foal alarm – works like a charm, not difficult to set up and the support is fantastic :-). Thanks to you we got a healthy little American Miniature Horse foal :).

The live feed is entertaining and addictive, like watching a camera, except with alarms to guard against missing the big event and allowing watchers to get some rest. And I couldn’t ask for a better tech team on any foal alarm.

I highly recommend smart foal to all breeders. I can look at my computer screen at all times of the night and without stepping outside I know if my mare is eating, pacing, lying down or in labour. This is the second season we have used smart foal and won’t use anything else. Safe foaling is a priority for all breeders and this is the smartest way of keeping an eye on them.
In addition to the benefits listed above, we also offer:
Market leading range
Waterproof and hoof proof transmitters
LONGEST battery life!
You will even get a reminder to recharge the battery when it gets low.
