Udder today, milk was very sticky, looks about the same color as the third picture on the foaling link (thank you for that btw!) I tested her and 4 out of 5 of the squares changed color.

are you using the spa strips? I never did have luck with those suckers.. would show they were ready for a week before foaling! LOL

They don't always point. But I've never had a mare foal whose ninnies were still pointing in towards each other. They always point down or out prior to foaling :)

Lol no, not the spa strips. Not too sure how you use those ones I've read so many different methods. We've only had one other mare foal before but I was only 9 so I don't remember too much from that one lol.

I just researched again and think I have a better understanding, it's 1:6 ratio correct? 1cc of milk to 6cc of distilled water for the spa strips? We were using a kit that our vet had recommended, predict-a-foal from Jeffers. Are spa strips the ones that test pH too? Lol I've gotten myself confused with all the different terminology. :P

IAMRanch miniature horses. Driving bloodlines for sale.

The spa strips are just a bit cheaper is all. This site says they are harder to read.. but personally I didn't see the calcium and PH change at all the last week prior to foaling.
