I remember reading something about them developing gas. :) One of the signs that I read about was the mucus plug being released, which is supposed to happen between 24-48 hours before foaling. I am not really sure what this is supposed to look like though :)?? That is so nice that your vet is close...if all else fails, you can just call when her water breaks. :)

When you have time and energy after the foaling, I would love a description of what sort of things happened around the actual foaling. It was helpful for me to just read about the signs you are seeing now :).

Ha ha, I will do my best to provide you with a second by second, detailed by detailed description. Knowing Meg I'll probably miss the whole thing!

You haven't got long to go have you? :)

A little over 3 weeks if she does not go over. I am thinking that the weather should be pretty nice by then though. :) She is finally starting to look really big - but does not yet look too uncomfortable. The time is passing painfully slow for me though!! I suppose it gives me more time to browse through my reading and take some key notes.

Do you have a little foaling kit going? If so, what do you have in it? My main book suggests one, but if the vet is coming, is it necessary?

I've not really got a foal kit together. I do have a HUGE first aid kit, and my vet has ordered some milk in, just in case things go horribly wrong.
I've got my purple spray to hand too. For spraying the umbilical cord. But I haven't anything else. :)

Based on what little genetic information I have from the two horses your colour odds are as follows...

Bay tobiano-32.81%
Bay-32.81%
Black tobiano-10.94%
Black-10.94%
Chestnut tobiano-6.25%
Chestnut-6.25%

But, I saw that she's had a foal before. If you give me the colour of that foal and the foal's sire, then I can make the colour predictions more acurate.

Hope this helps some!

Thanks for those Pempikl!

I'm not sure what she was bred to before or what her foal was like, it was way before I got her.

Ah well, all that means is that I can't be more specific. But those are going to be your colour choices, so baby will be one of those. I guess it's the just the odds that will be changed. Either way, hopefully the baby will make an appearance here soon, and we'll be able to stop guessing.
