My mini mare Charm is very likely bred(we are 99% sure) it was an accidental breeding(she is a rescue, the rescue she came from the volunteers put her in with 2 studs) We have been watching her really closely due to last time she was bred and foaling, her foal was upside-down, with it's head bent backwards and one leg bent back, it took 5 hours and I believe 4 vets to pull the foal, then she was so torn up she tried to colic and die for over a week after that. I am really worried, because if she has any scar tissue around the cervix then we could very easily loose both mare and foal. But if worse comes to worse, I have 5-6 gallons of goat milk in the freezer, a friend that would happily give me up to 5 gallons of goat milk a day or a few goats, and a vet who would do a serum transfer if colostrum is not available, I also have all of the stuff I would need to bottle raise a foal and an emergency foaling kit. I'm only hoping for a healthy foal, I don't care whether it's colt or filly, mule or mini.
Anyway I've been trying to get my mind off of the negative side of things. So, her udder is filling, but is still a clear slightly white liquid(not milk like at all), her vulva isn't relaxing yet and neither are the ligaments around her tail. But we are hoping she foals in the next week.
So when do you thing the foal will be born? Do you think it will be a Miniature Horse or a Miniature Mule? Do you think it will be a Colt or a Filly? What color/pattern?
Bomb(Mini horse possible stallion, pics taken at 2 years old, he has gotten a LOT better balanced and conformed since these were taken, just for color/pattern reference):
I don't have any pictures of the mini Jack Donkey But he was brown/bay/seal
This color(not him, but looks just like him):
I will try and update every day or two.
