Being a seasoned mare she should foal just fine, but have a vet on call and the necessary items ready. ( foaling kit)
Heheheh, send a request for " child support" to the colts owner.
Hi the colt is a black gypsy cob, :( my mare is a full welsh section d, the bloke in question owned the colt at the time is saying it was everyone else fault and not his fault, says how responsible he is :( still not talking to him and never will I really want to knock his head off

Anyways tonight I felt it kick my hand after pressing on my mares belly after she had her tea and nope I go without and my two horses get everything :)

I will keep you all posted

Yep sorry Tea has Dinner not the drink tea lol

Update my mare udders are a lot bigger and her teats are facing inwards (pointing to each other) not sure if that means anything

I would wait for a few weeks no riding her and I would get the vet to check back on her then!

Hairy little beast she is! She is beginning to bag up. Will she let you wash her teets? There can be some nasty crusties between those things. Clean with warm water and baby soap, rinse well, braid her tail ( optional, but keeps it out of the way) and get ready for baby. Could be weeks, or days. Her teets should point outwards when she gets closer, but this is not a guarantee. Oh, I wish we did not live so blasted faraway ( like different continents, heheheh) I would be there to help in heart beat.

Yer she has still got her winter coat not letting it go with the weather been still cold here in the uk, I used to clean her teats ones a week but she stopped letting get to them and her mare parts a few months ago that's when I notested the changes in her temprement I am really dreading it (no one on the yard know's they all tuck the vet's no as that's it she not in foal lol what a shock they are going to get.
