Occasionally you will need match a foal with a Foster Mare. To do this in Ardex, you need to run a procedure on the foal that will link it to the new mother.

From the Main screen in Ardex;

  • Select Procedures
  • Set the desired date
  • Select the foal
  • Select the Mare - Foster Mare procedure
  • Enter a Worksheet message (if req'd)
  • Click Add

The screen will appear allowing you to select the horse that will become the Foster Mare. You are required to fill in the following three fields;

  1. The horse (mare) that will become the Foster Mare
  2. Set an Agistment Status. You may also use the pre-set Agistment charge, or enter an ad hoc rate
  3. Set the Property of the Foster Mare + Foal

Once the procedure has been recorded, you will see confirmation in the lower portion of the Procedures screen. Note the Fostering remark in the Comments field;

Notes:

  • If the horse you select is not a foal, you will receive a warning and the procedure will not complete
  • Your organisation may have renamed some procedures. The procedure name above is indicative only
