You can never be sure with a maiden, and mares don't always follow the rules, as we breeders know all too well, but the "average" is 6 weeks after first starting to bag up, 2 weeks after the bag stops going down during the day and stays bagged up 24/7, and within 24 hours of waxing up unless the mare gets nervous and holds on to the foal, which they can do for several days...

Sounds like she's waxing..There should be a baby within 24 hours or so,if she follows the rules,which there's no guarantee she will,lol.

Well no foal this morning -.- typical, all the signs and nothing there, my brother went over before work this morning and she was laying down, just wish she'd pop it out so that it'll save us all this stress!

Yeah it's just my luck, get up early hoping to see a lovely little foal in the stable and I get there to find her laying down looking at me as if to say ' what you doing here so early' -.- but we were thinking, shes not due to foal really for another week or two so could all these signs be down to the fact that the foal is moving around inside her, cause we noticed that she was looking rather worried and swishing her tail and kicking at her belly whenever the foal seemed to be active and it's generally in the nights he gets really active in her belly, Matthew

Sometimes mares will have a false labor about a week or so before they foal, so maybe that's what's going on, or the foal is laying on her intestines causing some pain and she trying to get it to reposition.

That's what we were thinking was a false labour, she seems really worried with herself :/

they do do that, they don't know why they hurt or what's going on.
