    Any foals due in April?

    I have a have a huge favour to ask, can anyone with mares due in April next year please post photos showing how big their mares are now as I am kind of freaking out with how big my filly is getting already.
    Thank you for your help
    Ps in Britian a filly is any female that hasn't had a foal not a yearling as she is 4.

    I need to get updated pictures first. :) Mine is due April 9th. I calculated the due date wrong. Got too excited. "May" doesn't seem to really have one showing, but she's always had a wide rib thing going.

    Mara is due on the 8th but it is her first so no idea when she will go, she is huge already looks like she is going to pop.

    May looks like that most of the time. :) I currently have her on a performance feed, but since next month is her half point, I might introduce to to the mare and foal feed because her last trimester starts in January and I don't want her to learn a need feed in the middle of the winter.

    My filly isn't fat you can feal her ribs, with her being a Shetland she isn't getting feed anything other then her grass and a miniral lick we got her, I think an elephant must have flown in just to mate her.

    Probably. Forgive me if I missed this, but do you know what she was bred to? What are the heights on both parents?

    Hmm. Has he produced large babies at birth? Meaning were any of them large at foaling?

    It could be her genes playing a part of how big she is. Or there is a big baby?
