The foals going to be the first foal registered to my stud so im just wishing everything wil be safe, I took a couple of photos of her today to keep an eye on any changes, I took one of her teats, one of her vulva and a couple showing her side on to see the size of her belly, if you want ill try and upload them so you can see her rather than me telling you about her

Looks like she still has a ways to go, but she is a maiden, so who knows

tbh I thought the same, she should still have a week to go but then she started having them signs and then we started getting a bit worried and trying to find all the answers to our questions, can maiden mares go earlier than a mare that has had a foal before? Matthew

Yes they can go earlier or later, horses don't have a due date like people do, the foal will be born when the foal is ready. The foal dictates when it's born, the mare can delay it for a few days.

Okay, thanks for the info, Matthew

Now seeing the pics,I'd say she has a little bit to go,but being a maiden,who knows? She must have been having a round of false labor or the foal was in a really bad position before.. As for going early,or late for that matter,it's like cmarie said.My one mare,her maiden year,went two weeks over her due date,but another mare,who was pregnant with her second foal,foaled over a week early;they pick the due date,not Your mare certainly has a nice belly on her though! :)

Well not much change today other than her belly has seemed to have dropped more and gotten narrower a bit, she still looks depressed as usual do no difference there and I noticed that the foal seemed to be active earlier today, for the last week or so it's been always around the same time, suppose its getting fed up of sleeping and laying there all the time so it would rather anoy mam for a bit lol, Matthew
