In this captivating video, we are taken on a journey to witness the magic of life as our Arabian mare, Isabella, gracefully brings her foal, Hermes, into the world. No interventions, no disturbances—just nature at its finest.
Horses in the wild, like majestic mustangs, have been giving birth unassisted for centuries. It’s a testament to the innate strength and wisdom of these magnificent creatures. As Isabella delivers her foal, the bond between mother and newborn begins to form, with the first moments together imprinting scents that will forever unite them.
At this special moment, we believe that humans should respect and honor the natural birthing process, intervening only when it is medically urgent and necessary. Isabella proved to be a remarkable mother, handling the birthing process with grace, and both she and Hermes are healthy and content.
We were fortunate to witness this awe-inspiring event, standing lovingly by the sidelines. However, we also understand that certain circumstances may require human assistance due to medical urgencies. In such cases, it is crucial to prioritize the well-being of the mare and foal.
Through this video, we aim to share our experience of allowing the mare to give birth naturally, providing an educational insight into the stages of labor. We hope it serves as a reminder that nature knows best and should be allowed to guide the process whenever possible.
Join us in celebrating the miracle of life and appreciating the beauty of a mother’s strength. Let us honor the bonds formed in those first precious moments and embrace the wisdom of nature’s design.
