There has been a steady growth in foal numbers in both Britain and Ireland during the 2016 breeding year as reported in the recently published Weatherbys Return of Mares 2016.

The most significant growth has been in the number of foals registered in Ireland which by the end of September this year stood at 8,792 - up by 587 (7.15%) on 8,205 at the same time last year.

The number of foals registered in Great Britain by 30th September totaled 4,597 which is an increase of 131 (2.9%) at the same point in time in 2015.

Naturally, 2016 foals have continued to be registered since the 30th September and complete total year foal numbers will be available in the Weatherbys Return of Mares Supplement published in early February 2017.
