    Foal
    I have no doubt that Sage will....Shadow , on he other hand.....who knows. She is 365 days in foal (according to her her previous owners' calculations/report). If she goes much longer, I will be gravely concerned! One, b/c many late term foals ( and mares) have complications and two...it's getting cooler now that fall is around the corner. I don't want to compromise the health of the foal due to upcoming cold wintry nights and days........we have a heavy blanket, but want the baby big and strong enough to withstand the temps.

    That was our concerns too. We knew that our mare was pregnant this spring and we were worried that she would foal before it started warming up. Winter seemed to hang on forever but spring finally came around.

    She was still pregnant in August and our concerns grew again that she would foal late in the year. Hopefully this winter won't be too bad for these late foals.

    Foal
    Still nothing Falcor........I am really thinking that this is a phantom pregnancy!! She has filled up teats that can be expressed, but no bag. Her vulva is tight and I do not see movement........my husband and I are convinced that she didn't "take" the night she got out to woo he stallion like her previous owner thought. She would be 369 days preggo today. Whatever will be Shall Be......I refuse to go insane any longer! We have turned her out with her barn buddies, but are still keeping a VERY close eye on her.........she seems much happier since she was in a separate paddock for over a month! Being back o school with my new students has kept me occupied and less obsessed with watching and waiting.....but I am still watching and waiting for you, Sarah and ms Lady.......

    I had a friend whose mare had a perfectly healthy colt at 370 days this year and another who had a healthy baby at 374. As per the question above though, did the vet confirm pregnancy?

    I had the vet up in the spring to give vaccinations. While she was here, Shadow Freaked out badly when the vet inserted the needle! ( I had only had her for obout 2 months t the time....had no idea how she responded to vaccinated). I asked the vet to confirm whether or not she was pregnant, but the vet said that she would have to tranquilize her in order to take blood for the preggo test. She said she didn't have time to do it then......my husband was against the idea....he is such a softie and said that we should just let nature take its course and continue watching for signs. We had a foal born on our farm 2 years ago and were familiar with the signs and care or a pregnant mare. Just this past month I called the vet again and she insisted that she even tranquilize her to do an ultra sound. Shadow really gave her a run for her money! Again...my husband was not happy with that alternative! I plan on calliing another vet in the area if something doesn't happen by the end of this month.
    I contacted her former owner and she confirmed that she got out only one night with a stud. She sold her with the info that she may be preggo. My husband and I just planned on preparing for a foal. We bought her b/c she is really sweet and a safe mount for trails. If she is pregnant, we will keep her baby forever.
