We got this mare about 3 weeks ago and was told she is bred (she's huge so it was obvious).
They didn't have an approx date or anything. I had the vet come out and she did palpitated her stomach and did an ultrasound and said it was really hard to give a solid estimate but she thought we would have a foal in a month or less. This is our first foal so I was just curious about when she might foal. I know it's up to her and baby of course. We are on night watch and 100% prepared but I've never seen foaling signs before so I'm not sure what to expect.
She is huge and her belly is pretty low. She has alot of clear colostrum (not sticky yet but man there's alot) and the past 48 hours she has really slowed down. Usually she is excited to get out of her stall and hit the pasture but today and yesterday she just relaxed in the barn almost all day.
Sound like she is going to foal soon?
How soon after tons of clear colostrum did your mare foal?
These were the best pictures I could get. She got little to no handling in her previous home so she is slowly coming around.
I couldn't get an udder picture.
This is princess our mini mare by the way :)
