bagging

How soon after a mare begins to bag will the baby come? Sierra is starting to bag and I want to take her to my trainers to have the baby because my place is not baby proof... I'm going to send her an e-mail tomorrow because I think I'm going to run her out there this weekend..... But I was just wondering....

Really depends on the mare. Some bag up and will hold onto that baby for another month while others bag and foal in couple days. Never hurts to be on the safe side and get her moved but I've generally found it to be a week+. Have the muscles around her tail head relaxed yet? Does she have that 'point' on her belly?

I'll take a pic tomorrow. She's not hugely bagged, it's just started filling and she's definitely not waxing. Her belly is definitely big and hard....

I just went through this for the first time so I will let you know what my mare did. ( I didnt even know she was pg)

Her teats started getting bigger about a month ago. A week ago Monday I noticed that she had bagged up. They continued to get bigger and bigger as as the week went on. Friday we took her in for an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy and I noticed a little waxing and dripping of milk. Saturday more wax. Sunday we noticed she wasnt as round as she had been (baby had moved into position) and had tons of wax and leaking. Baby was born Sunday evening. I have some pics of her bagging up if you would like to see them to compare to your mare.

HTH and good luck!!!

My mare (maiden) has been bagged up for just under three weeks now. I thought the baby was on the way last night, but nope! I have never had a mare that didn't bag up at least 2 weeks before foaling. My mares generally bag up a month before foaling.

I'm going to take my round pen and turn it into a paddock so that I can give her the stall and a paddock area that is seperate from the other horses just in case she surprises me.

I traded my pony for her about a month ago. She was VERY underweight (I could see all of her ribs, her hip bones, and her spine). My trainer picked her up in TN because she's pregnant w/ a mule and they want the baby. We don't have any further information so... My trainers best geuss was April/May time frame for a birth....
