Foal watch 2009. :)

This is a thread for any expectant godmothers or godfathers out there. You don't have to post here but I thought it would be easier just to have one thread to check for new foals rather than several. I will start off with Bessie. She is my 7 year old Belgian rescue who is in foal to a QH stud. She is so darn big I think she might pop before she has the foal.

Here is a picture from when she first came home.


Here is from 3 days ago


And I will have to get my most current pix up here in a minute. I don't have them on the computer yet. Tonight, she is pretty much bagged up and there are small spots of wax on each teat. Her vulva is huge (not just cause she is a drafty either. And tonight, it looks kinda like her belly has dropped and her butt has been soft ever since she came here.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Okay, here are tonights pix. I would have had them up earlier but she decided she wanted the grass from the other side of the fence and walked through it. LOL. Silly girl.







I bet her opening is as long as my hand. And that is saying something, I have big hands. :)


The spots of wax are so small that they don't show up in the pic. They are there though.



I just feel so sorry for her, that can't be comfortable to be that darn big. :/

Do you leave her in pasture or stall her?

Do you have a cam to watch her?

Those utters are big enough even I might be able to milk them.

I think I said this in another post.. She's a stunner. I can't wait to see the bub. I'll be watching this thread carefully.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thank you all. I checked on her a minute ago and she was just walking around munching on grass. She is in a pretty good sized pen so putting a camera out there isn't really possible even if I had one. :)

Thank you all. No new news this morning. She has been a bit restless and keeps walking through the darn fence. I have had to put her and the others back in 3 different times during the night. :( But no signs of a coming foal. *sigh* Se is probably waiting for me to go back to work before she has it.
