I always heard deworming in the first day will help reduce or prevent the "foal heat" diarreah. I always do it to mine (and it does seem to work, although I've heard people say it's just coincidence).

My mare, Sonya had her foal April 25th, but I just put up a the vid on the forum.
I know I'm not technically on foal watch anymore, and I'm not trying to hijack the thread, but I thought you would all like to watch.

Still no baby, dangit! Dancer sure is getting cranky, though. She stomped at one of the cats, when she normally just ignores them - even when the young ones play with her tail. She still wuffles in my ear, though, so she's just cranky, not impossible. And she's still a cookie monster, not to mention a pig.

She's more off by herself now - she is normally right near Mystie, or Mystie is right near her, I'm not sure which it is. However, when Mystie approaches her, Dancer doesn't object. Personally, I think she's stalling - she's had more cookies in the last few days than she has in the last two months. And before someone gets the wrong idea - they aren't real cookies - they are apple flavored horse treats.

She has more of a mucus discharge, so I think she's getting closer?

No wobbly baby here, yet. I gave up checking on Dancer during the night. Told her she was taking so long she was on her own. She is still walking around squirting milk...and still pregnant. Told daughter I thought she might be faking, and all the jumps and bumps in her belly were just gas...

Somehow, I don't think Dancer takes me too seriously!

Everything is holding steady at my end too. Still no baby! Izzy's udder is getting bigger, but very, very slowly.

I am now hoping for a 4th of July baby!
