I’ve used these kits since 2011 and found them very reliable. The kits work by testing the mares milk as she gets close to foaling. Once the milk reaches the 95% reading, then foaling is normally within 12 hours…. it’s worked for me and has saved me many sleepless nights and helped me be there for my mares foaling. Last year I would probably have lost 2 foals had I not been there. None of my mares have ever suffered any detriment by taking the very small amount of milk needed to do the test (only half a ml) You can read more about using the kit at http://www.mothernatureskit.com
You can also see reports on our news page of how they’ve worked for us in the past!
The full kit contains: 25 testing strips valid for 2 years, milk collection pot, 2 x 3ml syringes, 2 test tubes and full instructions. All that’s needed in addition is distilled/deionised water, available at most large supermarkets from £1.
Post and packing to UK addresses is £3.50, for European posting £4.50.
Price: £28 plus £3.50 UK postage, plus £4.50 for Europe posting. email:email@example.com tel. 07813130179

He’s very well handled and well behaved. Can go out with anything. Likes to play etc. Easy to do, had feet trimmed regularly. Had full innocs. Healthy little pony with no vices. Ideal for show home, or for children as has been around lots. Beautifully marked with butterfly on his back!!

Faline has now found a new home.
Faline is Emma’s 2010 filly, she has been at a lovely loving home but is now reluctantly for sale due to unforeseen circumstances. She is available to a 5* home where she will get lots of attention which she has been used to – she loves being groomed and cuddled. This is what her current owners say about her: -
“Faline has lived out all year but been brought in during harsh weather – she is happy in or out. Up to date with vaccines, microchipped, freeze marked, seen dentist recently, good with farrier but barefoot, has worn bridle with no problem, been sat on but not broken. Loves going for walks and walks next to my daughters wheelchair. Is living with a filly and a gelding at the moment and we would not want her living alone as she loves company. Faline is my favourite and such a beautiful pony, we do not want to sell her to someone who just wants a companion pony that will put her in a field and leave her, we need a home where she will be near children or adults who want to spoil her as she is use to lots of interaction.”
Contact Andrea initially and I can put you in touch with Faline’s owners.
