Foal
Yes Gabby looks alot closer to me to, but usually when Im pretty sure of somthing like that they will prove me wrong and Aria will foal first...lol, still nothing this morning, we are in Northern MN and it has been wonderful weather the last few days in the 50's got out of bed this morning and its pouring rain. When youve got 3 feet of snow melting already and its starts pouring its not a good thing! If this keeps up I need a paddle boat to get out to them its just YUCK! Right now! That probably means someones going to foal :)

I didn't know you could use regular spa strips! Do you have to do anything special?
Oh, and I know how you feel! Its super wet and muddy here. My mare is still 30 days till her due date so I don't want to stall her yet, but every chance she gets she gets filthy! She especially likes to wallow in the mud after being brushed :)

I think Minnesota's early spring weather is a reason why my oldest sister bred her mare for a slightly later foal. She is in Duluth and her mare is due at the very end of April, it shouldn't be as bad of a mud hole then. Not that you can ever predict Minnesota weather, Valleyfair has very short lines on days with predicted rain and/or thunderstorms.

Nothing really special, you can buy the 6 way strips at our local hardware store, your only looking at the ph level and the hardness, (which is calcium) buy a gallon of distilled water, and mix your mild a 3:1 ratio, if you have 1cc of milk use 3 cc's distilled water. Dip your test strip and wait the time on the box to read the faster it changes the better. When they are ready hardness will be at 400ppm or higher but ph is the one that really helps and that will start at the highest and when your within about 12 to 24 hours it will drop way out like off the chart low 6.4 or lower. Works like a charm for me and I don't lose sleep anymore, the worst I've had is last yr one mare held out 3 days after she tested ready...but I say if nothing else it tells you when they wont foal, Im glad I still only lost 3 nights of sleep instead of 3 weeks!

We usually have babies the end of April but we show and this way I don't lose them for the whole yr. And march is a happy medium since my stalls arent heated just heat lamps to have them in Jan. I don't believe in a broodmare so our babies come out of our show string, all our mares have to get a good show record going before we breed and we show daddy too soo mud it is I guess....lol
