Lucky suckers to have foals already. :(

Geez, all ya'll are so lucky that your mares are foaling. I don't think that Bessie is ever going to foal. She is as big as a house and there are still no signs that she is planning to pop out a kid any time soon. Her bags are just about half full and she has not started to wax or drip either one. I am starting to get a bit concerned because she is so big.

? Arrgghh, will she ever foal? I am so anxious I can't hardly stand it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

she looks like she has some draft in her, so maybe that is why she is so big. But I am right there with you on the waiting game, but then since I have only known for a week, I guess I shouldn't complain.

smrobs, go take a look at my horses - look at Velvet, the only real full body shots I have of her are when she was about a week from having her first foal. One is a full sideways, the other is from the front ... believe me, your little girl can still get MUCH bigger. ;) If I had been on it like everyone here, I should have taken pics the day before she foaled - she got much bigger than she looked in those pics. They say they look bigger faster when they've had a foal already... can't imagine how she'd look after number 2.
