    Also, that's really cute that she hangs out outside your window. You can definitely tell who she trusts and wants to be close to. Or maybe it's just cooler or more sheltered there, but I like to think it's the first option. :)

    Every morning I am waking up to the sounds of hooves clacking and scraping on the concrete below the window. That side is sunny, no shade at all in the morning, so it can't be because its cooler. I do hope it is because she trusts us and knows we love her. We just fenced off the entire property, and they can go wherever they like on it. We figured they would stay down by the trees where the grass is thick and there is shade. Nope, they hang out either by the front porch or on the driveway close to the house. I keep thinking she is waxing up a bit, but then it is gone by morning. With no dates, just an estimate of "some time in summer" I am resigned to not knowing when. Just wish I was a more patient person!

    Pregnant mares force those of us who lack patience to acquire that virtue. She will foal when she foals. I doubt she knows when the blessed event will happen but as others have stated the longer it takes the more condition she gains. Shalom

    Technically it's not summer yet, but it is so hard being patient! Hope your foaling goes smoothly. Is she getting soft/jiggly at the tailhead area yet?

    Yes she has a total jello butt! And the guy who helped us rescue her from the hoarder said it would be another month, about a month ago. She is big as a house, and waddling all over the place. We are going to try to feel movement today if she doesn't kick us for touching her belly. Her udder is filling up, I noticed!

    And still growing...

    Big as a house, but sweet as can be. She seems like she is about to pop. We chuckle at her pregnant lady waddle, but she sure can move when it comes dinner time. I can't imagine how she could get any bigger! We have started discussing names for the foal, which is lots of fun.

    and yet still waiting....

    She is starting to sort of separate herself from the herd, standing quietly alone in the shade while the others eat. Her udder is filling up and her belly is getting even bigger, if that is even possible. She has started laying down a lot, loves to lounge in the pile of hay that has fallen around the bottom of the big round bale. I will try to get some better pics of her udder, this was just a quick one this morning. On the hot days she has been taking a dip in the pond, splashing around to cool off and loves to have me spray her down with the hose. She even turns so I can spray her butt, and clenches her butt muscles when the cold water hits it, which cracks us all up. She seems really uncomfortable, so I am glad it cooled off some here. I am not a patient person, the waiting is driving me crazy.

    I did not read through all the posts but have skimmed through. She's looking good! She's lucky you found her and took her in. Can't wait to see a baby!!

    I was hoping for a 4th of July baby so I could name it Revolution, but alas, no deal! She has become verrrry loving, rubbing her head on me whenever she can. She also wants her butt scratched all the time, and if there is no post or tree available, will turn towards me so I can give it a good scratching for her. Trying not to read too many awful horror stories about what can go wrong when the time comes! Pics are from last night.
