while my girl bagged up she had clear fluid. And the day she foaled it was a white color so when the fluid is white you'll know she is ready!

I know people who's maiden, non-pregnant mares gave them fluid when their udders were tested, so it's not a for-sure sign of pregnancy either.

Hi just some updated photo's that I tuck this morning,
I think her belly has droped what do you all think ?
Is the greenish colour wee alright or does that say something is wrong ?
And her teats look diffrent to me do they to you ?

What do you all think this is doing my head in

Thank you

As for the pee...She could be a little dehydrated. She could just have too many hormones in her system or it might just be normal pee that you're obsessing over. Is she drinking at least one full bucket of water a day? Preferably you want them drinking a lot when they are pregnant so make sure she always has nice fresh water. Her tummy definitely looks like there's a baby lurking in there but it doesn't look ready to come out yet. And as for the teats, she's not bagging up much yet so I wouldn't get too worried yet.

I think you've got a ways to go from the size of her udder, although some mares bag up just a week to days before foaling. I have three pregnant mares and two of them have bigger bags than that and same size belly. They're due around April 14. The other mare doesn't have much of an udder going yet, big belly though, she's not due til end of April.

I've spent most my life riding horses...the rest i've just wasted.

I can't wait to see what the baby looks like!! For reference, here is my mare three days before the gave birth last year to her sixth foal. Once she gets pretty close to foaling her teats will point to the ground usually. Good luck and keep us updated!!

Hi she has a a very big bucket in her stable at night time and a bath full of water in the field both with clean fresh water and she does drink loads and also wee's loads.

Haha! Makes you want to slap one of those "Baby On Board" stickers to her butt with some WIDE LOAD tape too. She's so cute and I hope her and baby come out just fine! Keep us updated!
