Trust me, I know all about the sleepless nights - Freyja, my mare, showed signs very, very early, and I had months, literally months, of sleepless nights. You can read about my experience, as well as seeing progress pictures all the way up until 2 hours before she foaled around page 18 or so, on this thread here:

I was lucky with my mare last year when she foaled as i said in my first post she foal on day 326 and when i got up there at 8pm she had waxed up and by 7am the next morning I had a perfect little filly, only one sleepless night, so she is making up for it this time lol.

All the sleepless nights will be worth it though in the end :)

Is the "v" belly a good sign?

Dancer kept us guessing for two weeks! Her udder would get huge, then subside. The day before she foaled, her milk was still pretty clear and sticky - only slightly cloudy. We figured it would be another week or so. Then the storms rolled in Monday morning and Rain arrived with them!

I was going to ask if there are any storms in the forecast. They seem to like to make their appearances in the middle of a good storm.

im hoping that's what my mare will do instead of dragging on and on. Did her milk change once she had had the foal? We have had nothing but dry weather here for weeks, so maybe she is waiting for a storm.

Your horse is gorgeous on the picture, is it a grulla?
