Smart Foal is getting Smarter!

Great news!

After years of Smart Foal being used by hundreds of people across multiple countries we have incorporated feedback and feature requests to bring you:

Smart Foal HOME

On top of the current Smart Foal features:

  • Up to 600m range (depending on terrain, hills, buildings)
  • Real time webapp
  • Long battery life
  • Water proof/stomp proof

Smart Foal HOME includes:

  • Improved lying down detection. We have moved the extra sensitive detection method in the webapp into the HOME base so now the hardware alarm is just as sensitive.
  • Offline mare detection.  If your mare goes out of range, or breaks out of her paddock, the hardware alarm will “chirp” and let you know.
  • Automatic override if your internet goes down. Have the HOME base set to Auto so that you normally get alarms through the app or on your phone, but if your internet goes down the hardware alarm can detect that and turn itself on – so if your mare lies down the alarm will still activate.
  • MUTE button! Our mute button is not like any other sleep button you have seen before. Our Mute button ONLY silences the alarm for the one mare who activated it in the first place. What does this mean for you? Well if one mare lies down to have a big sleep and you hit mute the alarm will stop sounding for 15 minutes. She can get up, down and fidget as much as she wants, the alarm will stay off; BUT if another mare lies down and goes into labour the alarm will still activate!

We have built in as much redundancy as possible to make sure your mare can’t sneak the foal out. This not only makes Smart Foal the most sensitive halter mounted alarm on the market, it means that anyone without internet, or anyone who just wants the screaming alarm on it’s own, can take advantages of our advances.

We are still putting the finishing touches on this version. It will be released to the public in the next month or two.

Why You Should Buy a Foaling Alert System for Sale for Your Mare

Taking care of horses is a rewarding yet challenging endeavour. As almost all horse owners will tell you, the bond between a mare and its keeper is undeniable, and if you can gain the trust of your animal, you can enjoy a genuine friendship that could last for decades. However, horses are large animals, meaning they need plenty of exercise, lots of food and water, and just as much love and attention. Even though looking after horses can be time-consuming, most people think the payoff is more than worthwhile, but things can become even more challenging when your mares become pregnant.

Mares can go into heat several times a year, though generally only in the breeding seasons of spring and summer. Your horses may show that they’re ready to breed by lifting their tail in front of stallions or putting on a little weight, and they may even secrete urine to attract the attention of potential mates. Because a mare’s gestation period lasts around 11 months, it’s not always easy to spot the signs of pregnancy in the early stages. However, it can be even more challenging to identify when your mare is about to give birth, but a foaling alert system can lend a helping hand.

At Smart Foal, we spent two years working in the research and development industry before launching our new, revolutionary foaling alert system for sale just over a year ago. Our alert system links to an intuitive app so that you can monitor your mares’ activity without having to keep your eye on the constantly, and we’ve installed a range of safeguards to ensure nothing can interfere with or hamper the effectiveness of your system. In addition to being one of the most comprehensive solutions available, it’s also one of the most cost-effective to buy. Below, we detail some of the signs that suggest your mare is nearing labour before explaining how our new app can help.

Signs Your Mare Might Be Near Foaling

When your horse is ready to give birth, you’ll likely become overrun with a mix of emotions, from fear and anxiety to joy and excitement. However, if you want adequate time to prepare, you need to know how to identify the signs that your mare is ready to foal:

  • Distended Udder: During the final month of pregnancy, your mare’s udder will probably enlarge, which is most noticeable at night when your horse is resting. The udder may shrink during the day, but this is entirely natural.
  • Filling Teats: When the udder grows, the upper portion of your mare’s teat will stretch in a way that makes it hard to tell apart from the udder. The lower portion of your horse’s teat may stay small right up until your horse is ready to give birth.
  • Waxing: Often, your mare will leak beads of a waxy substance from her teat, which will appear anywhere between 12 hours and two weeks before your horse is ready to give birth. However, sometimes, these beads don’t always appear, so don’t be too alarmed if you don’t notice anything.
  • Sunken back end: When your mare gets closer to foaling, hormones are released that cause the muscles around the birthing channel to relax. This is most visible around the tail. When you touch the muscles either side of the tail, inside of feeling firm muscle tissue, you will feel squishy jelly-like tissue. It literally jiggles like jelly and is one of the best indicators that your mare is ready to foal.

Buy Smart Foal, the Best Foal Alarm and App for Sale

Losing a foal is terrible for any horse breeder. It’s even worse when its mare dies too. The best safeguard against such a loss is to have someone present when an expectant mare is about to deliver. Sometimes all it takes to save a foal and its mother is to be there to break the amniotic sac. Research and statistics show however that approximately 90% of mares foal between 6 pm and 6 am. That’s when you’re lying in bed after a busy day!

There’s a German saying that the foal picks the date, but the mare chooses the hour. It makes sense because at night, she’s undisturbed, and she can follow her natural instincts. A foal’s birth in the middle of the night is still no problem if you employ a full-time foaling attendant or a watchman. However, if your stables are relatively small, you do most of the work without any assistance. Then the imminent birth may turn your dreams into nightmares.

Don’t lose sleep over foaling. Buy the Smart Foal kit with App

You don’t want to lose sleep, but neither do you want to lose time, spending hours on the Internet, looking for a foaling app for sale that is at least as trustworthy and reliable as a watchman. One alarm stands out, not only because of its excellent transmitter, but also thanks to its splendid foal app: Smart Foal.

Smart Foal provides round the clock surveillance of your expectant mare and will inform you of any activity. Smart Foal’s intelligent 3D motion-sensing transmitter attaches to the mare’s halter under the chin. She won’t notice it at all. Mishaps may occur, but the device is robust enough to take a bump, and is waterproof too. As soon as the transmitter is switched on, it will send its data to your Wi-Fi-base station, which in turn will upload these to the Internet—where the Smart Foal app comes into play.

Your mare’s activities in patterns

After processing the data it receives, the Smart Foal App recognises many forms of discomfort. Is your mare calm, content and eating? You’ll know it. Is she taking a nap? The app keeps you up-to-date. If she’s rolling and pacing, the Smart foal app will warn you. There’s also no need the check the transmitter’s battery—you’ll receive a signal when its power is getting low. After a recharge, you can monitor your mare for another six weeks.

You don’t need to buy the Smart Foal App either. Access to it is included free in the Smart Foal Kit or the Bundle and Save Kit which is for sale in our online shop. The kits aren’t expensive, especially considering what they offer, but if you want, you can purchase them lay-buy. Spread the total cost over a maximum of six months. So, while you’re enjoying your well-deserved sleep, Smart Foal will keep an eye open for you.
