I bred a older mare for the first time last year and she developed wheezing while about 5 months pregnant and as she got closer she got worst after she delivered she was fine no more symptoms. She gave me some long nights towards the end of the pregnancy, sometimes she sounded like she having an asthma attack, but she wasn't in distress her gums stayed nice and pink, she never went off her feed, no nasal discharge, didn't cough often though. I thought maybe dusty hay but none of the other horses were having a problem, and watering her hay didn't make a difference, what I think it could have been is extra pressure on the diaphragm from the foal, she was a very obese older maiden mare, I wouldn't have bred her had I known she was 18 instead of 13 like I was told when I bought her then when I got the papers she was 18, needless to say I was upset about that, but that's another story.

Well no to much to report this morning, I think they are crossing their legs..lol they both look like if they sneeze they might pop, bags are full and tight still both testing mid range for PH, weather has turned nice here, in the 60s all week and 70s this weekend so they are probably holding out for pouring rain or a snowstorm. Gabby is till having a little bit of a tough time breathing, thinking I might just have the vet out to have him check her over see what he thinks. Im thinking the bottom lineis he's going to tell me she's in the last week of pregnancy most likely and so its just going to be a little harder on her especially since she looks like she's having 3!

Sitting here watching the girls. I have my foaling pen and stalls set up on the back side of my house with windows on the stalls and everything lit up so I get to sit in my rocker and watch out the window. My grey mare is acting very agitated tonight doing the helicopter with her tail kicking her belly and overall uneasy. Looks like I'll be here watching her for a bit. Will update if something happens!
