Woke up with flu, bad cough, so watching with 102.3 fever. Not fun!

Interesting watching your horse when they think no one is around!! They do some odd stuff!!
Hope you feel better super soon! This years flu has been an icky one!

I've always wanted to get a streaming video cam up on my girl just to watch her when I can't be there. She's not expecting and probably never will be but I am always interested in what she may be doing, lol.

Quick update.

I dound my mae just LOVES to sleep on her side, and groan. Oye.

This morning, she had a bit of liquid coming from the vulva, and kept lifting her tail. All the while lying flat out. I am thinking maybe mucas plug?

She is standing up now, sleeping like a normal horse. Lol.

She doesnt appear to be having any other symptoms of anything at moment! I will be so happy when this one is on his feet!! I am going to need to invest in Clairol. My greys are taking over!!

Are you feeling better? The other day I was running a 102.8 fever and I know it's hard to get anything accomplished. Also, how is Miss Maggie doing today?

Hi RP.

I am fairly certain I have Bronchitis. I tend to get it if someone sneezes at me wrong. Coughing fool headoff. On TMPZ. Gotta love that. Spent entire night watching in tent w monitor outside stall. Oye. About 5 p.m. She starts acting stage one. At about 4 a.m. Same. Today, kept her in, as we were sure she was getting ready. Go out to ride Wonder Pony, pic below, lol, and come back to find her, once again, flat out!! She loves sleeping that way!! I was worried, vet came. Palpated. Said foal still deep, so wasnt in stage 1. Gave her some banamine, just to make her bit more comfy. Turned her out, she finds sand, rolls, and hops up like spring chicken!

In stall now, watching monitor. She is eating, seems quite content. Friend who is large animal thinks she will go soon. She isnt happy, guess they can hurry it along.

Thought, since dont have ton pics of Maggie, you guys would enjoy seeing the below pic of daughter(29 years old daughter) pony. He is 14.2 and has his own facebook page. He thinks he is amazing, and he is. That coop is 3'3" high by about 4.5 foot across.

Beautiful horses - don't panic about the foaling - MOST horses do ti very well all by themselves. It' only when you read up on books written by vets - who, let's face it only (tend to) get called out if something major goes wrong, that we get the B'Jesus scared out of us
Hope your bronchitis clears soon. I used to get it a lot until I had a serious bout of pnuemoonia over a year ago. After that I decided I needed to look at my lifestyle and I gave up eating sugar and have not had a days illness since
(Sugar causes inflammation you see)
Worth a try

Thanks everyone for asking and support. Maggie is just five. We competed her maybe 5 times. Out of 35 horses at florida she was second by .2. Against all the big guys. It was a very hard decision to breed or not. We lucked into her, if something should happen!! Oye! When she was confirmed in foal, vet seemed suprised how big embryo was. So, concerned aboout getting it out. Couple with being ill,my daughter and I doing everything for 13 horses, cant find a groom, running grandbaby school hour each wat twice a day, feels smidge overwhelming. But wouldnt trade it for anything! Us horse nuts are a tough nut to crack!!
