Good news for those foaling horses in 2011 is that they can get a call or text to their mobile phone when a mare is ready to foal.
Good news for those foaling horses in 2011 is that they can now get a call or text to their mobile phone when a mare is ready to foal.
The GSM Alarmer, from LUDA Elektronik in Sweden, is the “ultimate accessory for a foaling alarm”. HorseCam, HorseCam online and HorseAlarm already allow owners to visually check on their animals by hand held monitor up to 800 metres from the stables or online from any distance.
The GSM Alarmer completes this cost effective security package by calling or texting up to six different phone numbers when the HorseAlarm detects a mare about to foal or a potential problem with colic.
Ludvig Brost, CEO at LUDE Elektronik, said: “Until now those foaling horses fitted with HorseAlarm could not go further than 800 metres from the stable, but with a GSM Alarmer they have much greater freedom.
“Once alerted by their GSM Alarmer the horse owner can instantly view the animal online with HorseCam Online before deciding when to return to the yard.
“Alarm calls and texts are activated when the HorseAlarm is triggered by the sweating or movements of the mare. Up to eight horses can be monitored simultaneously by this easily installed and operated package that makes foaling less stressful for owners and a lot safer for their horses.”
