I figured between extreme weather changes and moon phases, she would have popped by now. On March 19 & 20, we had a snow storm roll by, on March 23, we had some sever weather pass, and on March 30 we had a full moon.
The reason why I am so frustrated is because this is a maden mare and her first foal. In the past I have been unlucky with a couple of first foals and lost them due to some complication or another reason. Weather and health were all good, but nature did not agree with us.
Two weeks ago, I could feel the baby jump and kick. Now the mare has dropped more, but all I hear is the swishin and whirling sound of liquid in the belly. Her bag seems to be developing more, and she has dropped more.
I have been around all types of livestock and raise, hogs, sheep, cattle, and horses. I am so use to a sow (hog) going within 2-3 days of her due date and a ewe (sheep) being within in a week, but horses are different. This difference I don't agree with... why can't science and nature agree for once....as to mare's being due around 340 -350 days.
I will post current pictures of the mare this afternoon, unless I get a baby between now and then.
