Birthguidance & KI-center



We have been happy to monitor your mare for years and then cover it with fresh semen. Stallions that are not at our station may also be used.


The arrival of a foal is something to look forward to for many people. To make this go as smoothly as possible, we offer birth support for your mare. We have three spacious stables available with cameras to keep an eye on your mare 24/7. When the mare is almost ready to give birth, an automatic Birthal Alarm System is sewn in. This will call us when the mare breaks her water.

The veterinarian will be present within 5 minutes to supervise the birth with us.

After the foal has arrived, the foal injection is given and the afterbirth is checked. The foal will also receive colostrum milk. After 24 hours of birth, the antibodies are checked and plasma is given if necessary.

In a nutshell: 

  • Automatic Birth Alarm System that is sewn into your mare
  • 24/7 camera surveillance 
  • Afterbirth check
  • Colostrum management
  • Foal injection
  • Check antibodies after 24 hours



Plasma is also sometimes called “liquid gold”. It owes this name to the enormous amount of substances it contains. We are mainly thinking of antibodies, clotting factors, albumin, and complement factors. A newborn foal has no antibodies in the blood. The first milk (colostrum or colostrum) is therefore crucial as it is very rich in these antibodies.

In a foal, the intestine is still easily accessible for antibodies during the first 12 hours and they can thus be absorbed. From the intestine they then enter the bloodstream where they can optimally fulfill their function. If, for whatever reason, a foal does not absorb sufficient antibodies, it cannot protect itself against all kinds of banal or less banal germs. A plasma transfusion can be crucial for these foals!

Foals that are already experiencing an infection and therefore already use up a large amount of their antibodies, can also benefit from a plasma transfusion.

The plasma bank is located at the Zuuthoeve in Lier, which can always be reached by telephone for an appointment to order and collect plasma.
