Lighting Programs - James W. Bailey, DVM

Lighting is one of the most productive tools used to manage broodmares. Most mares will not cycle until late March or even early May if not exposed to artificial lights. When lights are started December 1st, 80% of mares should begin cycling in early February. This ensures early breeding opportunities to get early foals.


Artificial lighting can be accomplished with outdoor lights in a small paddock or in a stall. Inexpensive hardware store timers can be used to light one or more stalls and are very effective in producing a consistent photoperiod. Your mare should have 16 hours of light.  The timers can be used to extend the amount of light in the evening.


It is important to not begin lighting mares before December 1st. Mares must stop cycling, or at least be in transition to stop cycling, before they start lights.


How much light do you need? The old saying is, "If you can read newsprint, it is adequate".


Feel free to contact us with any other questions you may have regarding lighting your mares.
