Just tuning in... that baby belly!!! I'm surprised it isn't knocking her knees and hocks when she walks!

That is an amazing belly! I don't think I've ever seen one sinking that low to the ground. Is it just a single foal in there?

I'm hoping so! My sons's ex sorted out all her care when she was first in foal and said she was going to get her scanned - until you've mentioned it just now, I hadn't even though about twins! On her last check with the vet a few weeks ago for her booster injections, he checked her and said she's in great health. He's the vet that's seen her since my son first bought her, but there was no internal exam etc when he last came - he wasn't concerned about her size - she's never carried twins before - is there a chance she could now?

She's usually such a slight build so I think any weight gain makes a difference to her - but I'm praying twins aren't a factor in her size

Her legs do creak now when she walks - poor thing

But on the up side, my hubby's now convinced she's due anyday now - he can see a change in her over the weekend - and he's NEVER wrong

And OMG, she is sooo low. I predict 1 or 2 more days. Nothing more. It just can't go any longer, can it??
I'll take your one or two day prediction - thankyou

She is huge! I hope she foals soon-that has to be quite uncomfortable.

I pray there aren't twins. I'd call the vet out to double check it isn't twins so that if there are you're all better prepared since things could go very wrong with twins.
I wish you all the best!

Thankyou
We have my sons boss's daughter who's a vet who's coming this week to check her over - but only as a favour - she won't have any equipment with her as she's here visiting family x

Would the vet have to scan to check or would it be an internal exam?

Not quite sure, sorry. I would think it would be a scan to be exact?
