Ugh. Still nothing. Im starting to think maybe BOTH my vets were wrong and she's actually going to hold it till her next possible due date... May 26th... Which really sucks. Do you think its even possible to mess up the due date when they're 2 months apart? Like, a 9 month old foal in the womb compared to an 11 month foal.... Wouldn't there be a big difference in size and development? Do you think my vet is right and my mare is just almost 3 weeks overdue or do you think they both messed up and she's not due for another 2 months??

God forbid I go to any heaven in which there are no horses.

don't go by what anyone says, because they all might be wrong! Our mare had only a little milk and was acting the same and all that when our vet came out to put her foaling moniter in. He was going to wait because she didn't look close at all, and what do you know, 2 weeks later my dad drives into the barn driveway and sees her laying down, in LABOR! So, just keep a close eye on her! Oh, and I can relate with your pain, I was at school when she foaled! Stupid education!
