Just pics of my pregnant mare...getting closer!

My poor mare has NOT been happy at all the past few weeks. Talk about cranky! Satin, the black Foxtrotter mare is gone now so at least I don't have to worry about her trying to hurt the foal.
Chanti is due around mid February to mid March, based on the fact her last heat cycle was back in late March/early April.

Just wanted to share new pics taken today. The foal seems to be staying more on one side, the right side. Chanti is very cranky about being touched on her belly and it has now been a couple months since she's been worked at all.
I am so excited to see her baby.

I do feel like I need to ask since nobody ever got an answer on your other thread.

Has this mare seen the vet yet or are you still just guesstimating that she's probably pregnant and looks healthy?

Seconding smrob's post.

Still, she doesn't look happy, hope that baby pops soon.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Wow she looks big. She was checked for twins, right? I hope she has an easy foaling and a healthy baby.

Is she showing any other signs besides her big preggo belly? Guessing at the due date i'd keep close watch...
Do you have a safe place for her to foal,foaling kit etc. best be prepared

She still has a little while to go unfortunately. I will be putting up panels down at the barn so she will have an enclosed area to foal in. The only downside to that idea is the barn always gets incredibly yucky and muddy since it is at the bottom of a hill and all the rain runs down and sits there but maybe we can get a ditch in front of the barn, just a small one to divert the water. I'll lay out straw all over and hopefully Chanti will foal in there. She has never ever been kept up in a small space like that so it might just stress her out. Since she is at my parent's house and I live about 15 minutes away it's going to be real hard to keep her in the stall when she's close but I don't plan on missing the birth.
I actually have to pick up some gentle iodine, I am out of that. I plan on being stocked up for anything I might need. I'm expecting a late February baby and I'm guessing a filly ;) I hope she has spots too! :)
