Static seems to be gone. She keeps acting as if she's about to go down but then just rubs her head and paces a bit...interesting...

So looks so boney from this angle. LoL. It's not flattering for the poor girl. She seems uncomfortable.

That made me laugh about the shaved legs. What an accomplishment for a pregnant woman! HaHaHa.

I think it's just the angle and the poor light. If you look at her, she is well fleshed.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

HAHA...I know...even with my huge belly, I always managed to shave! Now that I'm not pregnant...I shave only when I get itchy because I now have a baby to care for and about 5 minutes to myself to shower!

She does look a bit boney in her hips but that could maybe be because she's loosened quite a bit back there? We'll have to see what she looks like a few days after she foals. I'm sure she'll fill out quite nicely.

That's why after a few foals we started allowing our mares to foal in the paddocks...They seemed to be more comfortable and we could be close by and keep and eye on them without really disturbing them....here back a few years ago we had 2 mares foal within 30 min. Of each other it was a crazy night I must say.

Oh...for the record, the owners stated on FB that her milk tested at a 225....I'm assuming that it's a really good number since I don't own any horses currently...

I'm sure her bonyness is due to the bad angle of the camera, her being a TB and so close to foaling. Her backend is probably as loose as a goose.

She's one of the mares on their broodmare page and they are all fit and healthy in those photos.

Wyndella - my last pregnancy I had to get my hubby to trim the undercarriage. I couldn't see it, and there was no way I was going into the delivery room looking like I had trapped a small furry creature in the fold under my preggy belly lmao.
