Thanks NdAppy. I got some distilled water yesterday, so we are good on that end. Hopefully I will be able to try it out this week just to make sure I got it down when I still know what values to be expecting. So the ratio is 1:3? I wasn't sure and I obviously haven't done this milk testing before, so I really appreciate your input!

That's great, because that is the exact same box of test strips that I bought! Good website with lots of information; I was surprised to see one I hadn't seen before.

I recently got a CCTV surveillance system to put up for my mare.Haven't set it up yet,but it seems to be a good system;I've heard that alot of people who do the MARE STARE thing use CCTV cams..

Here are some new pictures from today. Angie was taking a break from eating her hay and decided to sleep on it instead. It was so cute I had to share!








When she saw me coming she rolled over on her side and showed of the big belly. She really needed to work to get up; rolling on to her back before throwing herself to her feet. Poor girl, I hope she doesn't get too much bigger!

Good news! I think I am definitely going to be able to get Miss Angie up on a camera, at least for me in the barn. After spending a ton of time looking online for a cheap CCTV I suddenly remembered that we have an old fish camera that we would use while ice-fishing hole to look at the fish. It has a wire that connects to a little TV and everything! I think it will work perfectly if we mount it in her stall and run the wire through the wall to the tack area. Nothing like a little improvisation!

The only thing I am worried about is this: the way we have it set up, her stall is connected to a little run. The stall is not separated by a wall, just a doorway. What do you think her chances are of foaling inside? She spends a lot of time in her stall and that is where she chooses to go to sleep at night, but I an worried I will set up the camera inside and she will go foal outside! While that would be fine, it would make it harder for me. Do you think she will choose to foal in her stall?

Depends. Last year my mom had a mare that kindly went into the shelter with all the fresh straw instead of dropping the filly in the dirty paddock. I know of another mare that chose to drop a baby in the muckiest part of the pasture (right outside the barn) instead of in the fluffy, clean stall that was open to the pasture. So, how lucky do you feel?

Haha,good idea with the fish cam,after all,whatever works,right? lol.I'm in the same quandary! I also have an outside pen that is connected to the inside pen/stall.Both my other broodmares always foaled outside,every time.I didn't have a camera then,so not a big deal,but now that I do,it would be a bummer to not be able to get it on tape,so to speak!
