Somewhat Deflated

November 13, 2009
Deflating Foal

Deflated foals are much easier and cheaper to post overseas. This one's about half empty.

We export horses to 16 countries, including Tasmania. Ever keen to minimise costs, we’ve pioneered the practice of foal deflation.

Though frowned on by some industry commentators, we’re confident this revolutionary system will gain ground over time.

It’s certainly popular with the kiddies.

Upon delivery, foals can be reinflated with 2-3 standard CO2 bulbs (as found in soda siphons). Alternatively, they can be left to self inflate overnight without ill effect.
