^^Right! I am hoping she foals inside, and I think that is what she did last time when she was in a similar are, so here's hopping she sticks to that strategy. Oh by the way, we are at around 312 days today, and starting to watch her a little closer. It seems to me that she has gotten a lot bigger just in the last few days. I will upload a picture tomorrow, I need to get out and take some new ones.
Yea, we are thinking she will probably go before her April 20th due date. Since she is at around 313 days today, she could conceivably foal anytime in April. As we wind down, it would be interesting to hear what people think as far as guesses for the date when she will foal and color of her foal. It will be either a sorrel or a palomino. We are getting so close!
New pictures! These are all from today. Angie has gotten her last vaccinations and she is all ready to go! Now all that we need to do is watch and wait for baby. She is 319 days. She is eating like...well, she is eating like a pregnant mare! She still looks about the same and I cannot really see belly from behind.
Not the best picture, but you get the idea...I am trying to compare pictures, to see if her vulva is elongating, but sometimes I get the feeling that she is being sneaky and tightening up whenever I lift her tail to look. I must look pretty silly, standing behind her with her tail up in the air glaring at her butt...
This horse is already making me stressed, and the barn owner is not helping! I am out of town this weekend, and I will not be back until Thursday. I knew Angie probably wouldn't foal for another few weeks, but nevertheless I gave strict orders that I was to be called right away if anything happened. Well, this morning I got a call saying Angie had had a filly! I was very surprised and more than a little upset that I had missed the birth and I wasn't going to see the baby for several days. The barn owner let me bemoan my bad luck for a little while, before informing me that it was in fact April 1st. Happy April Fools Day! I was not amused, but he had a good laugh.
Hey, it sure got me! When I saw his number on the caller ID I almost died. After getting a camera set up and being so vigilant, it would be incredibly frustrating to miss the first few days of the baby's life. After I got over my shock, I had to agree it was pretty funny!
