Just for a giggle - here's Merlot about 2 WEEKS BEFORE His Lordship arrived ....see what I mean about being a barge LOL...
She had me panicking thinking she might pop before she allowed him out!

LOL I know, actually I have a sneaking suspicion based on His Lordship's voracious appetite that he ate the other two.

Just with the whole, first foal is small, thing, whilst this is the norm, Freya must have not got the memo. If she produces anything bigger than that I'm going to seriously question her breeder about the 'no Clydesdale' in her blood line
I know I don't I have reference to go by but Panacea was well bigger than I thought and Freya really should have show
But I guess you can have horses with bucket pelvises same as humans

Whiskey's foal, Lily ( now 2 yrs old) was a BIG baby.....and it was her first. She ripped terribly! The vet had to reconstruct her coodle. Thank goodness the tear didn't rip thru her rectum! She has healed well, but has battle scars.......

This was Lady, a week before foaling this spring. She was a maiden and big as a whale, but she is a very stocky, halter body horse to begin with (14.2hh, 1100+ lbs)...

I also had a maiden mare foal this summer. She wasn't super huge but definitely a little bigger than your mare. But every mare is different! The waiting game drove me nuts! SO know what your going through! Her of some pics of her right before she foaled.. Good luck with your mare :)

I called he vet..........i wanted a consultation and / or visit to ease my mind.......She said that b/c Shadow gave her a hard time re: shots.....she would have to tranquilize her to do an ultrasound. Otherwise, to continue to look for bagging up. My husband and I do not want to tranquilize her at this point. We will just have to let nature take its course. She is back in the foaling paddock. Her teats look more full. Can express yellow/amber fluid, not still no milk.
