    I know! I have been pretty good lately with not over analyzing anything she does. She does look pretty miserable today though. And she is having very loose stools too. Hopefully she decides to go while we are having such nice sunny days!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well for you and Flicka!!!!!
    Oh wow! I have a baby monitor set up in the stalled area and I can hear real well, and have been leaving it on all night for the last week. That's another reason I am going to end up closing her off at night. Thanks for the good foaling vibes!

    I would just put a bunch of grass hay in with her at night, so she has something to do to help keep her body temperature up. Their natural instinct when they start getting cold, is to buddy up with other horses if they have them, and eat food. I could always tell when it had gotten really cold during the night, because I would go out to feed, and my mare would go crazy until she had her food, and had started warming up. She would be pacing her stall, and would bowl you over if you went in her stall to feed her, and she's definitely not a food aggressive horse. Just make sure your mare has access to food, and if the stall is fully enclosed, she should be able to stay fairly warm. I can't wait to see what the baby looks like.

    Thanks for the ideas. We did a lot of work over this weekend and decided that over night we are going to close her off in her stall. We got it lined very heavily with good quality straw. I feed her a little extra hay at night and through the baby monitor you can hear her munching throughout most of the night. The weather got up to 60* yesterday and last night it was about 35* or so... we are finally starting to warm up a bit so her not having a blanket on is much easier. I will get some photos up in a while. She hasn't changed a whole lot physically, her bags went back down yesterday but this morning they were a bit fuller. It *almost* looks like the baby might be trying to move into position, she is looking like her tummy is dropping.

    I can't wait until she has the baby. Hopefully she does it while the weather is warmer. It sounds like she got a very good home with someone who really want to make sure she has the best life possible.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, they really mean a lot to me. She is in good hands and to be quite honest is rather spoiled rotten, but that's true of all my horses. She is still holding that baby in there away from us, but her bag is getting slightly fuller and she isn't losing as much throughout the day either... she is at 331 days today
