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.

Buy a Foaling Monitor for Sale to Provide Your Mares with the Care They Need

Looking after horses can be a dream come true for some people, with many of the world’s youngsters having ambitions to maintain a full stable of their own when they become adults. While it’s true that raising animals can be rewarding for countless reasons, it’s important to remember that keeping horses healthy and happy can be hard work, and doing so might take up a lot of your time. Nevertheless, if you’re an animal lover and have enough time to dedicate to your animals, you could enjoy a long and indescribable bond with each of your horses.

You might even plan to breed your horses to bring new family members into your stable or sell to another aspiring horse owner, but that means you need to learn the ins and outs of maternal mare care. Horses go through various stages of pregnancy, which lasts over 11 months, and they depend on you to provide them with the care they need. Unfortunately, you can’t keep a watchful eye on your paddock 24 hours a day, which means you need a foaling monitor that lets you watch them remotely. However, it’s crucial to buy a foaling monitor that won’t let you down, whether it’s due to interference issues or being stomped upon accidentally.

Here at Smart Foal, we’ve developed an innovative new system to help you care for your pregnant mares around the clock right up until pregnancy. You’ll hear alarms and receive notifications when your mare’s activity changes and you’ll know if your horse is in distress or requires attention. The transmitter, which attaches to your horse’s halter, is highly stomp-proof thanks to being made with high-grade materials, and thanks to its Velcro strap, it will never cause any harm to your beloved animal. We’re just as passionate about ensuring mares and foals live happy lives as you are, which is why we’ve detailed some top care tips below.

How to Look After Pregnant Mares – and How Our Foaling Monitor for Sale Can Help

Whether your newborn foal will be an addition to your family or go to another owner who wishes to raise happy and healthy horses, you’ll fill with joy when your mare gives birth. Here are a few ways to ensure she remains in good health during pregnancy:

  • Diet: For the first seven or eight months, your mare may require no additional food to keep herself and her baby healthy, but she’ll need to increase her calorie intake by 20% during the run-up to giving birth.
  • Vaccinations: Your horse may need vaccinations against the Equine Herpes Virus five, seven and nine months into pregnancy to prevent a miscarriage. She will also require injections shortly before giving birth to protect the foal. Tetanus and Hendra may be an issue depending where you live. And, of course, worming your mare prior to her giving birth can protect the mare and the foal.
  • Care: It’s a good idea to monitor your mare’s activity so that you can give her immediate attention if necessary, and if you buy our foaling monitor for sale, you can do just that easily.

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.
