How long does it take a horse to have a baby?

Do you want to know gestation length? 11 months

Or do you want to know how long labor lasts from start to finish? No more than a couple of hours after they lay down.

Let me know if you still have questions.

Reply to Tammy Falkner's Post: I wanted to know how long gestation is in days so I would know just about when to watch a first time Mom.

Total gestation is 340 days from the day of the breeding. There is a nifty little chart here:

that will help you figure out the time table for your horse.
