Thanks, and good luck
with your mare. The waiting is always the hard part and then it happens so quickly. When Lady looked close this spring, I started checking on her 2-3 times a night. Of course, nothing, nothing, nothing....On April 20th (342 days in foal), checked on her at 4:30am....nothing, and figured another day. At 6:30am while making my coffee, looked out and she was laying in the hay we had set up for her. Ran out the door, and Buckshot had just been born. Of course, had to run back in for the camera, and she did pick a morning after it rained the day before. Here are the pictures...born to back out grazing in less than 2 1/2 hours. A true miracle of nature to look forward to. https://plus.google.com/photos/10075...J3Bm_qHu7CgjwE
