is mare my being bolshy becauase she is on the home stretch to foaling?

Hi all

I have a question which has been puzzling me.... my mare who is due to foal in March has recently started getting bolshy and bargy when being lead from the ground. Is this due to her being ready to foal in march and generally feeling uncomfotable etc. My previous mare who was in foal seemed to get the same around this same time before she foaled and then went back to normal once the foal was born. Has anyone else experienced this kind of behaviour from their mares?

that's normal my mare is also due to foal around march some time and she is starting to get like that. She should get better after she has foaled

Thank you for your reply. Are you correcting her for this so as to keep you as the leader?

No she isn't brocken to ride yet she will be eventually fingers crossed we're doing ground work trotting when asked and building up her conferdence around people as she was quite unhandled before we got her but then the owners daughter-in-law put alot of work into her and she was kept at two different riding stables when she was getting transported up here so she has come on a long way.

Hiya. She is doing good. Getting very fat! She is stabled at the moment as the fields are solid under foot and it's very icy again. She didn't seem as bolshy yesterday when I brought her in from the field infact it was slippy under foot and I lost my footing and I was just leading her with the headcollar and she lifted her head up to steady me it was really quite sweet. How's your mare doing? Is the weather bad by you? Hope it gets a little milder before the littlies arrive!
