Ok so I contacted the county extension agent and he is coming out to take a look at the pasture and give me his opinion on the fescue issue. It is a free service for county tax payers. This waiting is driving me crazy, I swear. Ellie is completely relaxed and chillin' out every day, and I'm checking her bag, watching her shape, etc, for tiny signs that she is near thinking it could be any day, and she just gets bigger and bigger. I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on whether the foal will be smaller than usual (judging by her belly, how that would be possible I do not know), since she was so starved before we got her? I figured baby would take from mom, and mom would be the one to starve, but does anyone know what we might face, simply because she was neglected for so long? Do we stand a chance at having a normal, healthy foal? She is NOT a maiden, I have been told she is a good mother, and has had at least one colt. I have heard it has been an awful year for offspring, of many, many different sorts of farm animals.
