Not yet, she's still got a bit to go yet, she's bagging up more and her bellies dropped even more and got more pointy, not getting so active in the nights either so I think she's getting there slowly

No not at all, it's hard work keepin track of all the days to figure out when they are due and it helps if you know when they were covered so if you know that day then you generally add on 11 months to find a rough idea as to when they will foal, don't forget every mare is different so some go earlier than their expected due date and some go later, I know alot of breeders give an extra 2 weeks to their due date to compensate for later foals, maiden mares generally tend to go either earlier or later and once they've had their first foal they tend to go around that same time if in goal again, just keep a regular check on her, my mare still has the symptoms but I now know its because the foal was quite active and was making it uncomfortable for for and now I know that it's the foal moving inside her, it want be too long for my mare now, hopefully the goals going to be a crackIng looking cob and hopefully and exceptional mover wish I could be picky on the colour but whatever comes out I'm not entirely bothered

Unfortunately I don't know when she was covered, I wasnt even told there was a possibility that she could indeed be in foal, however the deed has been done :( but while I am a little apprehensive I am too a litttle excited :) its the waiting and not knowing that's niggling me.
Thanks for letting me hang on your thread
Cheers :)

That is to bad that some horse owners are so irresponsible.

Sons....I feel for you. I had a neighbors stallion jumping in the pastures with my herd and we didn't know it til he showed up one day at one of the barns with the herd and I was like UH OHH! On 250 acres its hard to catch that. I thought I had trusted neighbors and high enough fences but guess not. When I confronted the neighbor about it he first tried to tell me it wasn't his and I told him to show me his. We went back there and sure enough his wasn't there. I told him he need to pay the vet. Fees and cost because I wasn't intending to have any mare covered this past season. He said he couldn't afford that and asked if I wanted the stallion. So I took the stallion and gelded him. 3 mares are due this summer now and 1 mare we aborted because she was still early enough and I know she is a frame carrier and he might be as well. It's lovely the lack of respect people have for others and animals! Good luck and praying for healthy foal/mare.

Hi thanks for your sympathy ladytaurean515 lol, it was the person who bought the horse before me that's goin to be gutted, she originally bought her to use for breeding as she really wanted a foal this year, if only she'd have known she was already in foal,but like I said the damage is done just hope that she copes with the birth and being a mum :)

Ripper thanks, but it wasnt the person whom I bought her off, it was the person before her, don't think she even knew she was pregnant as she bought her to use for breeding but don't think she was suited for her stallion hence why she sold her :)

Hey Everyone just to let you all now, Ffion had her foal early hours this morning, went over to do the morning run at half 7 this morning and found a healthy bay filly foal with four white socks and a star, absolutely over the moon will post pictures later on, for a maiden mare she is a brilliant mother, always checking to see where her baby is
