Lol they do look related :)

My mare loved having her udder rubbed and cleaned then one day she was acting a little "distant" and when I went to touch her udder she stopped eating, looked back at me and moved back. All new behavior for her.

She ended up foaling 2 hours later.

Not predicting that for your mare though. Sometimes they just mess with you lol.

Ya it was strange, she had never acted that way befor!? And im out with her now and unfortunetly still no foal.... :/ Last night and this morning she ate her food like a pig, acted like I havnt fed her in weeks or somthing?! I think her *girly part back there* has maybe slackened? I can't tell for sure cus when ever I go to look she clenches.... It seems alot more wrinkley when she clenches now though... Maybe im just going crazy?! Lol :) Other than that no changes...

My girl NEVER stopped eating...ever lol. Even a few hours before foaling, she had her face shoved in hay.

I'll take a stab and guess you'll have a colt on....hmmm, July 29th...yeah, I'll go with that (you hear that Gypsy? You have 10 days!)

by the look of her udders, I would say she has 2-4 weeks left, but she could be the type of mare that fills up completely a few hours before birth. She is huge too! Can't wait to see the little one, whose the baby daddy?

I too would think about two weeks except her milk is pretty white, her udders are warm and her calcium is decently high and her ph starting to-very slowly-drop :) silly mares always making things unpredictable! And she is bred to a black, gaited Paso Fino stallion! :) I will try and get a couple pics of him! He is only 3 so is not fully filled out ect...but very pretty just the same! And he is already 15 hands! :)

I think the goo would just be discharge? Unless she passed the mucus plug, which would be impossible to know, does her side seem smooth straight to the hip? Or is she sunk in, in front of the hips?

The biggest thing I look for is, a full udder, a very relaxed, almost falling open vulva, a V shaped Belly, and sunk in sides, as well as wax. I would say if she is showing any combination of 3 of the signs, then I myself would be doing nightly checks.

Yes she is sunk in alot infront of the hips, its hard to see in these pics though! And her belly is pretty v shaped, and her vulva seems really relaxed but when ever I try to look closer or take a pick she clenches it so its hard to tell for sure....and im not an expert. ;) Btw Thank you every one for your replys they are very helpful!

More pics

Here are a couple of her vulva when she just lifts her tail, and dosnt know im taking a pic! And one pic of how she is still holding her tail up all the time. Does she look relaxed back there to you guys? Also I checked her udders again and they havnt gotten bigger but I noticed what looks like little crystaly looking dots on her udder, but I don't know if that's what it is or not.. Thanks! Ill update again after I do the milk test at 6:30!!

Subbing, cute mare!

Also, the speckling sounds like it could be "salting" and I think it means that a mare could be getting closer to foaling. Not like hours away close, but a few weeks or days. I'm no expert though so take what I say with a bucket of salt! Hope someone who knows more can tell you for sure what it is.
