    Question hope so dont really know what im looking for

    Never bred before so only done reading and lots of research but all mares I've seen have differnt looking bags and as it is her first I am not sure what to look for. So someone that knows is opinion is really helpful and that marestar is a great idea seeing the mares waiting to foal

    Question had milk tested

    Decieded to get milk tested potassium and sodium levels accoridng to vet when they cross they usually drop with in 4 days her sodium was 119 mmol/L and her potassium was 9.4 mmol. So she not due yet not sure how long? He thinks maybe another week but having it tested in 2 days so hopefully tehy will get closer to crossing. Anyone know about the potassium and sodium

    I have NEVER heard of testing potassium and sodium. PH and calcium levels, however, will tell you when she is close.

    She looks close! Like Chey, I have never heard of testing potassium and sodium in milk as in indicator - I tested my mare and the lowering of the ph and the calcium level skyrocketing were the best indicators I had - she foaled within 24 hours of her milk change

    Question i thought calcium would have been better to test but he did potassium and sodium

    Well apparently when the potassium gets higher and sodium gets lower it crosses on a graph. When they cross then they are due to drop in 4 days? Do you think I should get the calcium done? Anyone know what number it should be before they drop. Her belly has grown like over night and dropped i'll take some pics tomorrow
