She ate her feed was quite and sleeping and then would calmly wake up and start munching hay. So I feel asleep and then woke up and looked at the tv just in time to see her go down and her water break. The only thing different that changed is the 2 tiny droplets of wax. So don't let her fool you!
I'm not sure If I want her to hurry up and have it, or to take her time so that I make sure to know everything I am supposed to know first....what happens happens I guess.
So now that you have had your first day with your BEAUTIFUL baby, anything I should know on the side of a newborn? I have my foaling kit with string, baggie for placenta, towel, and instructions in case Im not home in time (funny me writing instructions!)
You said she wouldn't let you get near it at first...did storm take care of the umbilical cord?
I know about the placenta, and of course have the vet come out the day after...I haven't gotten that far in my book, so hopefully that is why baby isn't here ;p
PS - my husband is making fun of me..."Horses have them in the wild all the time" OK, so I am a little OCD.
