I'm new here. I have a mare who is 24 years old. She is my best friend. She got pregnant not on purpose, but it is a great surprise. About a month ago, she started having contractions, her muscles are fallen off, her lady parts are huge, and her bag is beyond full. The contractions lasted off and on for about 8 days and now she isn't having them like she was. My dad has been around horses forever and has been in the business my entire life. He says this is normal and she'll have it when she is good and ready. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had a mare do this. She is the most stubborn, old, cranky horse, but I'm just worried about her.
Thanks so much
