We are out in the barn again with a very angry mare. She is pawing, up and down, threw her grain bucket and refusing to eat. She gets up, stands all stretched out, paces and then down again. She has a small amount of wax on one nipple but still has clearish milk. I have truly never seen this mare paw or act the least bit angry. Judging by her actions we are going to have a foal in the next 24 hours maximum, again tho, going by her bag we got awhile yet. Who knows, she is bound amd determined to turn me into a zombie by the end of this.
Poor Rem. Wishing her all the best and may she get some comfort and relief as soon as she pushes baby out to share with us. 10:42pm here...less than two hours... Five hours abouts for a 3:33-ish delivery lol.
Tonight is the last night that I will have help, then its back to me ( and I am sure I am catching an evil chest cold) a sick toddler and a totally non-horsey six year old, so highly doubt it will be tonight. On the other hand we do have a wintee storm warning in effect. I came in to get some much needed shut eye and when I left she was anxious but calmer. Will keep you guys posted as much as I can!
