ANOTHER APPY OWNER HERE!! Have a foal due 4/27-5/3! My mare is 14. She will be 15 when her foal arrives. It is her first foal. Im getting more and more nervous as the time gets closer. Her belly is getting bigger and she has started to pin her ears back at anybody that walks near her stall. What's up with that?? I was planning to take her back to the breeding farm to deliver but I heard some of our local horse vets have foaling stalls. I am afraid to let her have the baby at the place where we board.
Well, KB is grumpy and looking miserable but still, she's not due til Feb 10, so the longer she holds out the better. Dreamlet is due Feb 13, so right after KB should be a little Drumlet. Both girls are huge, both are bagging a little, but not even close to ready yet! I'm getting a little more anxious as we get closer.
Dreamcatcher, I feel your pain!! Lena is bagging up a little every day, miserable again. For a while she wasn't very miserable. She wasn't laying down as much, but now she is starting again. Posted via Mobile Device
KB who is the mellowist of horses is getting downright uncooperative. Dreamlet keeps getting told, "You're going to freeze that way if you don't watch it." because she seems to walk around with a permanent scowl on her face and her ears flat back on her neck. And of course, they are both doing the full on, pregnant mare wallow when they walk.
I had one due this year but she lost her colt :( The mare had an injury to her head and the vets think she lost due to stress. This is my only mare (I have a gelding) and I'm heartbroken but can't wait to see everyone else's foals... Wishing you all have healthy foals
I started a breeding journal for my mare mid last year and she's been "cooking" ever since.
My mare is Julep a, 16.2 1/2hh, traditional style Swedish Warmblood mare, she was AI by the vet April 20th of last year and is in foal by Registered Irish Draught, Snowford O'Donnell. She goes on watch about St Pattricks Day and my husband is working on setting up the Mare Stare feed right now! Yay!
