No baby yet??

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

No baby... Watching her on the tv. Keeping her tail out and away from her... Would discharge from the rectum be normal if close to foaling? The discharge occured once more while I was out there, I looked more closely and it seemed to be coming from her rectum. She doesn't seem like she is in pain when it happens, actually continues to eat.

It sounds a little like her water broke although I am no expert. Go here and scroll down to where it describes actual labor and delivery.

I'm no expert either, but it was no 2-5 gallons of fluid. It was... If I was to estimate... a third of a cup. Though it happened at least one more time while I was out there. I'm trying not to worry myself to death here, but I'm pretty sure the fluid came from her rectum, not her vulva. At first glance, it looked like it, until it occured the second time. She is acting like she normally does. Pacing around the stall with tail held up, nibbling at the hay, standing and switching legs; then repeat.

Could very well be that she is having some loose stools getting closer to the end.

ETA Think of clearing out the system in way.

If I were you I wouldn't be getting any sleep tonight unless I stared at the tv screen for so long I didn't know I was sleeping. Good luck. I'm sending positive vibes your way.

Trust me, I won't be getting any sleep until I know for sure she isn't foaling. Sucky part is my secondary school is going on a field trip to the Heritage Place (horse sale place thing) in my state. With my luck, she is going to foal and I'm going to have to miss it.

Just to calm myself down a little. Thought I'd share a picture, more for entertainment.
