Welcome to the waiting game! There are (at least) 3 of us that have been waiting for that inevitable "any day now"... My mare is a veteran and has not bagged up yet, so she is not playing by the rules. All we can hope for are strong, healthy foals.

Welcome to our little group, I see you have already met Falcor. I believe our mares have all gotten together and decided to hold tight to their foals as long as possiable to make us go crazy. I hope our mares have not reached out to yours 😳😳😳!!! My hope is as soon as one of us has that first healthy foal, the rest will follow!!

They ALWAYS drop them when you start wondering if they really are preggo. When your least expecting it, or sometimes when you go to the store or something, when come back you'll have a baby. Lol, be sure to post pics when she does drop!

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

She is still sticking out at the sides but her rear is like jello. Very soft and spongy.

sounds like it could be soon. You can check to see if her vulva is relaxing . And from the one pic, it looks like she may have foaled previously, comparable to my maiden mares, and the mares that have foaled. Hope she has no problems and that baby pops right out . A mule would be too cute !

Wow. Can't be too long with an udder like that!

Welcome! Wow! I would say your mare looks pretty close! But I have been thinking the same thing about my maiden! MsLady, Falcor and I have been on a long roller coaster ride, waiting for our mares to foal. I certainly hope your wait is easier! Can't wait to see pix of your little mule/horsie!

I got home from work this AM, I work until 2:30 AM. Went to turn the hydrant on to water the horses. I heard a big crack, knowing that sound of a solid double barrel kick. I became real concerned because we have a 4 month old filly out with our mares. At 3:00 in the morning, there isn't much light to see what was causing the commotion and I couldn't find the filly. She was hiding behind the hay bale. All the rest of the horses were huddled in one area with their heads to the ground. I finally got a glimpse of what was there. A BABY!!!

I ran to get the wife up to help herd the horses into another area so momma and baby could have that area to themselves. Then I was able to get a few pics. I'll get more today when I get up (if I can get some sleep).





Edit: Its a mule! He must have been just born as I got off work.
