Leave her to it I say. Good on you for getting the vet but by the sounds of it she is just getting herself ready :) Freya had no milk until she dropped the foal so don't panic.

My mother has come up for a 2 week visit from Texas. My focus will be more on our time together and less on the stress of waiting.......So I will post pix/info of progression as they occur....no more craziness!!! Lol.

Shadow is waddling more and eating less of her hay at a time. Her milk vein is large and she is has foamy sweat near her udders and flanks. It has been in the 90s these past few days, so not sure if the temp is what's making her uncomfortable. I can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend and no foal! Maybe the Labor will kick in before the weekend is over! :)

365 days in foal tomorrow.....Sept. 6th.........(according to her previous owner's calculations). I can't see a lot of movement. When I look, I don't know whether its Shadows guttural movements or the foal....especially at her flanks. Definitely no kicking. Will post pix this weekend.

I feel like I AM the one who is pregnant! I gave birth to my son over 9 years ago, and can honestly say it was a lot easier on me than waiting for this foal!
