I'll give the vet a ring tomorrow - she may have had a scan (son isn't sure but the vets visits were usually done during the day whilst he was at work) but the vet'll be able to confirm/advise. Thanks xx

She's quite restless tonight - no change in body/boobies, but she's lifting her legs whilst eating and just seems generally uncomfortable.

She hasn't had a scan (not with his practice anyway - and I can't see her being seen by anyone else as he's a specialist breeding equine vet - she and the stallion had all their swabs etc done with him so I can't see any reason why she'd have a scan with someone else).

He said he didn't think she was unduly big when he came out but he's in our area on Friday and will give me a ring and call in and see her. I mentioned the scan and he said we can sort that when he visits - so i'm thinking he has a mobile unit - (if they do them).

She has no history of twins but I don't know if that is a guarantee that she won't foal twins now.

Hi! I recently joined and just checked out this post. There is nothing that can make someone more anxious is when their horse is about to foal and your waiting on her to. We recently had a mini horse to foal, but it seemed to take forever! It is such as exciting, beautiful and rewarding thing. I hope all goes well with your darling horse. Just from reading a few pages I have become quite anxious as well to see how it all turns out. Please keep us posted. :)

Thankyou for your kind words. I think being a complete novice at this, is making me worry. The fact that she looks so big (and is usually such a slight frame) is making me worry. The fact that we have a gestation period of between 320 - 400+ days is definitely making me worry lol .
Fox is such a sweet horse (when she wants to be and definitely when you have food), she really means the world to us (all of us - ranging from 12 - 72 in age) so if anything went wrong, we'd be beside ourselves! The vet and the local feedstore (all have horses - they've been a great help with nutrition etc) all know me by now and all are happy to help and alleviate my fears (and of course, everyone of this forum are like friends now - even though we're thousands of miles apart!)

I just can't wait for the day when I'm posting foal pics - come on Fox - give me a break and pop this baby out!

Tonights piccies - still no foal *sigh*

The belly looks enormous (and it is) but she's more low down than side to side...........

She'll probably foal tonight - hubby and 2 sons ill in bed with manflu!

(Foxy gets more TLC than they do )

Fingers crossed all goes well for her! I definitely support you decision on getting an ultrasound to make sure there is just one! As while they can carry to full term with two, and some mares deliver two fine, there will always be on a little smaller and weaker...
Here's hoping for just a lot of fluid! (Did you know that in human pregnancy you get about 2kg of fluid? Learnt that the other day, and I couldn't help but apply that to horse pregnancies lol) and a nice big bouncing baby but that goes without saying!
