Thanks guys! Yes, we have been working closely with the vet to get her healthy. We wormed her, vaccinated her, and have been feeding her according to his advice. That is one consolation, the longer she goes, that means we have longer to help that foal grow healthy and strong inside her. The vet has said the same, that the foal needs the most nutrition, grows the most during the last three months, so chances are she and baby should be fine. He, too, said he has seen mares that were in worse condition foal with no problems, and ones that were well cared for lose their foal for one reason or other. I am just trying to prepare as best as I can in the time we have beforehand! And of course I am excited...and worried all at once!

Wow, that is one gorgeous horse! The hoarder probably has very good bloodlines and horses, but got screwy louey in the head. I can't wait to see this foal!

I love her dapples too. She's a very lucky girl. Is she broke to ride?

Kudo's to you for doing such a wonderful job with this mare!! She looks so much better in the short time you've had her.You are researching all you need to know about caring for a broodmare & upcoming foaling, getting the appropriate help from vet & about her nutrition.She is a lucky girl!! Be looking forward to seeing the baby. Are you able to get any udder pics to share?? Find those pics help the most

Thank you guys! From what we have heard she is from a very good bloodline of American Saddlebreds. I was told the stallion is one of the hoarder's top stallions, but there is no way to verify if it is true, without some sort of DNA test I guess. He is supposed to turn over her papers to us, and info about the upcoming foal, but again, I don't know if he will follow through and do it or not. Once I get them, if I get them, I will get you guys know what we find out. Honestly I know absolutely nothing about the bloodlines of American Saddlebreds or any other horses!!

As far as udder pics, I posted one a while ago, I will post another from about two weeks ago. I watch that closest of all, and I think she gets tired of me bending over to check. It seems her teats are filling up a bit more, but I don't see the bag filling or any wax. I will get another pic of her udder in a bit when I walk up to the barn!!

I don't think she is lucky, I think we are! She is just the sweetest horse, so affectionate and willing to please. I can't wait for us to be able to ride her! I have seen pics of her with the hoarder riding her, right before we got her, so I know she has been ridden, at the very least that once. I was told she has been worked with, but honestly, I figure everything I was told could potentially be a total lie, so we are just going to start at square one and see what she knows.

Updated photos of her udder taken just a bit ago. Plus a pic of her from the front view. Mr. Cluckles the rooster wanted to be in the pic too.

I am NO expert at this but I think I see some wax on her teats! I have been tryin to get pics of her bag so I can share with you all but its all rainy and gloomy outside and all the shots don't turn out. Plus, she keeps turning towards me, as you can see, because she thinks the camera is some sort of treat. There is definitely something on them though.
