    Just as expectant parents prepare a safe and comfortable nursery for their human baby, broodmare owners should prepare a safe turnout for their mares and foals. Nursery paddocks needn’t be elaborate, but they do need to be baby-safe. Babies of all species are curious, innocent, and can easily get themselves into terrible predicaments. Foals are no different.
