What an adorable mare. How exciting for you,. I can't wait to see what comes out of this match up. I just finished this book I learned a couple new things and refreshed my memory on a lot of old things I highly recommend it for first timers. 'Veterinary Guide to Horse Breeding'

It covers just about all the basics on breeding to foaling. What you are going to need, what to watch for, things that can go wrong how to make an educated guess on what is wrong. Just really good knowledge to have. I found it to be a rather easy read as well. Thought for sure I would have to be reading hand in hand with my dictionary but that wasn't the case. It always helps my panic factor to be prepared. Looking forward to your updates.

She is a very beautiful mare!! My mare is a maiden due to foal also. Will be checking in on you often! I took some photos today of her backend and stuff and a few through my thread. But, I have only had 4 foals before this an am in no way close to knowing what I am doing, and its been awhile. My husband has raised about 8. Can't wait to see the new baby!

I'm hoping the spring weather finally hitting will speed up the process. But then again I don't wanna be too impatient lol. No bagging today but her belly is definitely protruding from both sides. I took a pic from behind but she's got that huge bootie so you can't even see her belly lol. When I checked her teats there was a white powdery substance on them...no clue. But one thing for sure is she could care less that her bubbies are being messed with so I'm taking that as a sign that shell be a wonderful mommy.
