September 9 has been and gone uneventfully!

I went out to feed her this morning and did my usual checks/looks and I though wow her boobs have changed, they seem bigger but not full.

Then I look at the photos and they don't look that different, although the picture isnt the greatest.

She is being very happy by herself which is a surprise, she doesnt care about her herd next door at all, she just eats her hay and then sleeps in it :P

Looks like she's got a bit of a way to go yet! Can't wait for baby photos!

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Can't WAIT to seethe baby photos
Goodluck with her foaling, the Daddy is just gorgeous!

Just one question - Do you leave halters on them?
It's something that, having rescued horses whose halters have grown into their noses (and ulcerated leaving severe damage), I worry about when I see horses loose with halters on.

Sometimes yes we do leave halters on them, out of our 7 horses 2 have permanent halters, a rescue mare who is super timid and would be impossibly hard to catch otherwise, we are working on this :)

It is regularly checked to make sure it isn't tight :)

Thanks :)

I went out to feed Crystal after work today and noticed that she has weird ?swelling? Infront of her udders about 4-5cm in front of her nipples on both sides. It is easy to push in (squishy) and she isn't upset by this.

Is this just her udder developing?

Hi all,

An update and a question.

Her udders have filled out overnight and those white spots on the ends of her teats/nipples are they wax?

No that doesn't look like she's waxing to me - I'd say a wee way to go yet
