Help with Maiden Mare in Foal

I have a maiden mare in foal that I am not sure when she was bred. I know she is close and was hoping for some help in this department. The last mare I bred I had a foaling date so that helped narrow it down but this was a surprise. We live in a very rural area and have a lot of preditors so I have been waking up every couple of hours and keeping a close eye on her. Last night she was laying down breathing very heavy... tummy was rock hard... and her vuvla was very swollen. I am attaching photos I took today and would love any and all suggestions and help.

udders

Udders aren't bagged up they are droopy and have clear kind of milky color not yellowish liquid that comes out of them. Not as sticky as before but still a little salty if you taste it.

She looks a wee way away - It doesn't seem as if the muscles around her tail have relaxed and her vulva certainly hasn't.
The mares often lie down in the late stages of pregnancy and can even look (& sound) as though they are about to foal immediatly. This is simply because of the weight the foal is putting on her internals
Good luck with the foaling

As a maiden she may have forgotten to read the manual, and won't show any signs, but she doesn't look very close to me at all. Her vulva have not lengthened appreciabely, and though I can't see inside very well it still looks pink rather than deep pink to raspberry red. She looks like she has control of her tail and isn't at all sunken at the tail head. She also looks round still at the bottom of her belly and she's still rounded out to the sides rather than V'd down at the belly and almost flat sided again.

If you get a water testing kit or a foal prediction kit will help you out quite a bit. Predict-A-Foal

I like the Predict A Foal kits, I have had good accuracy with them.

... was there a pic of her vulva posted, and it got removed?? That's hilarious!!

Anyway, she doesn't look to me to be tooooooo close... but best of luck with the foaling when it happens :)
