Whew! It has been a crazy week. I finally made it back home and was relieved to get back to Angie, even though I knew she was fine and others had been checking on her. She is at 330 days today! Her belly hasn't dropped yet, and her udders are staying consistent. She is slackening up a little in the hindquarters, but still not very much.

I gave her a good grooming as soon as I got back, and she has the nicest, smoothest coat of any of the horses here. They are all still shedding out their winter coats. It is impossible to brush anyone else without inhaling on ingesting a pound of hair. Recently, though, has has gotten less personable. Not really crabby or anything, but noticeable.

I have been testing her milk, but so far she has held steady at over 8.0 pH and under 100 for calcium. I am testing about every other day, and watching for signs that she is getting closer and I should start testing every day.

Here are some pictures I took yesterday.

I didn't bother to post an udder picture, because they are exactly the same. The milk was easier to express, however. It is cloudy and watery.

I found two new pictures of Whiskey today and I just thought I'd share. He is such a pretty boy, and he has so much Fire Water Flit in him! This baby will definitely have a bright future ahead of it.

While looking at all the photos you have of your beautiful mare, I noticed that our mare about the same size, well once I got past her beauty lol. I am wondering if you could take a look at the photos I have on my profile in the album titled "Is Chickasaw going to foal soon?" and let me know what you think. I am new to the horse business (only about a year expience) and no expience with foaling mares. I am so excited to finally meet the foal and hope that I won't be out of state when she foals. I would really appreciate it. Thank you and good luck with your mare!!!

Thanks DaiziMae! I looked at your album and your mare is very pretty as well. Unfortunately it is really hard to say when she will foal from looking at pictures. Ang is at 331 days. Hope everything goes well with your mare, I'm sure she will have a pretty baby! I know what you mean about worrying while out of state, I am going to be gone again the 20th, 21st, and the 22nd. Angie is due the 20th! I guarantee you I will be bald by the time I get back, even though I know she is in good hands. Maybe she will be nice and foal before I leave!

She is a cute mare! I can't wait to see her foal! All the mares seem to enjoy making their owners desparate going late this year, so hopefully you won't miss the birth!

By the way, I am curious as to why her vulva looks the way it does, that is not a normal look as far as I know. Did she have some sort of trouble back in the day?

I have to leave on the 16th and go all the way to NV and won't get back home until the 25th at the latest. I know what you are talking about with the bald thing lol. I wish my mare would foal out before I leave too.

I'm not sure. I know she didn't have trouble with her first foal; could be just the way it is. Also, she likes to tighten it up when I try to take a picture, so that could contribute to it. Anyway, in case anyone was wondering, this will be her last foal. Hopefully then we will be able to ride her again! It would be great if she could be ridden again, she is such a great horse.

New pictures from today. We took her out and brushed her nice, so I decided to snap some photos while we were somewhere other then her pen. She always stands in the same area, so it was nice to get some photos with a different background. She is doing well at day 335. I am keeping an eye on her as she creeps closer and closer to her due date. Still no change in her vulva, udders are maybe a little fuller but not much, are consistently firm, liquid can be expressed easily. She eats like she will never eat again; when I put her back after grooming her she attacked her hay like she hadn't eaten in a week. Belly has just gotten bigger, when she lays down it is sometimes harder for her to breath, since there is less room in there!

This is my happy face...

This is my cranky pregnant momma wants to eat not get her picture taken face.

Just visited Angie and she has a tiny but of wax! I tried to get pictures but they aren't that great because I was using my phone. I will post them when I get home. Maybe she is planning on giving up the hostage early?
