2012 Expected Foals

Saturday is the last day of 2011, and the last day of December. We all know foaling season is right around the corner. I looked and looked, pretty far back on the threads for a 2012 foaling thread, and couldn't seem to find one.

I was thinking, with it being so close maybe we should start one? I know how excited we all are, can hardly stand around our heavily pregnant mares with out feeling their stomachs for a kick from the foal. So here is to it. What do y'all say? Start it now, or wait?

My 2 are 3 and 5 months from foaling. If others have similar EDC's, I'd be up for it.. :)

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

I'm thinking most want foals born near January 1st.. Though some might be back into May.

My one mare could go any day from now until March. Dx

Yes, a lot of the time. If you aren't concerned about yearling lunge line or futurities, it's not all that important. For me, I don't really care about futurities and I'd rather have them when it's not so darn cold!
