Interesting thing to see, Dreamcatcher....
I noticed Lena is lower today as well. Looked like she had a little bit of edema on the underside of her belly. We are also getting closer. Her bag is starting to work its way up, looked more equal. I guess earlier today she was laying down, with her legs spread out. Dad came in and was like "I think Lena is getting ready to have the foal." I asked why and he said she was laying down with her legs spread out, her vulva was gapping open and there was a red line down the middle, though everything else around was a lighter shade. I'm happy to know she trusts us enough, to let three people stand around her while she is still laying down. She looked miserable today. Didn't eat her food and kicked at her stomach before going out to lay in the hay this morning. While dad was watching her she had got up a little bit after, but by the time we all walked out there she was still laying down. At first she was sitting up, though she slowly leaned over, stretched out her legs, and stayed there for a few seconds. Then she shook her head and got up, was moving extremely slow today, like she was stiff.
