Well, a quick update on the Lilly front, my dad texted me, saying they noticed she's shedding her mucous plug. It's -16 and snowing today with a really bitter wind, so they're going to keep her inside until it warms a little, just to be safe. All I can say is she better either have that baby tonight or tomorrow or hang on until after April 1, or else I am going to be toasting my dad with a disgusting gluten-free beer!

I hope she waits for the weekend! I want to be there! My nephews are going out for spring break tomorrow, so I'm sure they'll have plenty of updates for me over the next few days. Speaking of spring, it was -24 C with the wind chill today. My parents let Lilly out for a few hours, but are worried she might decide to foal outside, so she's been indoors now for the last couple of days. Lilly hates being inside for prolonged periods of time, but I'd rather be safe than sorry when it's this cold. I hear warmer weather is on the way. I'll believe it when I see it.

She looks like she is trying to win the baby race! Can't wait to see that baby! Josie has backslid and isn't planning on foaling this year, unfortunately!

Well, I think she still has a little bit. She doesn't have much for udders yet. I'm thinking she might be one of those who doesn't bag up until the end.

Lilly is miserable. All she does is eat and sleep. Then get up and eat some more. She hasn't really changed much since my last post. My parents say her rump is still like jelly, her vulva appears to be lengthening and her tummy is getting lower. Her udders are still pretty small (no fescue), which of course has me a little worried, although she just might be one of those mares who waits til the bitter end to develop a bag. It probably also doesn't help that I see all the mares on here who have huge udders! Here is Lilly at 338.

I would not worry AT ALL about the bag as she is a maiden. Even for an experienced mare it's not a huge deal.

Well glad she can sleep at least ! lol

Yeah, my parents say that if she's not eating, she's laying down. Seeing these pictures of her now, I almost feel bad that I put her in foal!

Thanks for the reassurance Yogiwick. I just want so badly for everything to go well that any little thing that doesn't look like it's happening starts me to thinking! And news on the udder front. My dad texted and said it is starting to even out. As you can see in the picture, one side is a lot bigger than the other. Small progress, but progress nonetheless.

Well, some pretty substantial changes for Lilly. She is less wide (still wide though) and her belly looks like it might be getting that "V" shape - although I'll let you guys decide. Lilly was craaaaaaaanky. We brought her out before Tikki, then when we let Tikki in with her, she bit her and chased her away. I was scratching her today and she made as if she was going to bite me! Well... she knows better and there was no shortage of me making her remember that! Then the rest of the day, she paced, laid down, got up, paced, chased Tikki away, then stormed away from Tikki and ate a little. Then when we brought her in, she started eating like it was the last meal she'd ever have, almost frenzy-like. She was biting and kicking at her sides and was extremely agitated about life. Her udder is finally starting to do something, so I think we're getting into the end of the homestretch. Today is day 340.
