Yes, they were great. Mom foaled on a early Sunday morning just after a storm. We went out into the pasture and there was baby. She was already dry. We were able to walk right up to mom and baby, grab them and lead them up into the barn. We had no idea what we were doing so thankfully Lytsie (the mare) did everything for us. We had the vet out and all was good.
Our biggest indication was the udders. She had a 10 month old on her side that was obviously still nursing because Lytsie was still producing milk. When we bought Lytsie, her udder never went away. It got a little smaller, but she had it the entire time since we purchased her.
And then the belly kept getting wider and wider and wider.
