Problem with that is this was over night. Every other day the baby stuck out.

Baby may have moved into foaling position, although there is no way to tell how long they will be in position before they are born. Hours, days or even weeks :(

I'm sorry, but how can you possibly know this? Do you have special xray vision that you can visibly see where the foal is? The foal does not move in and out of position. The mare will have a contraction that moves the foal up into the birth canal. Once this happens, there is no sliding back down and out of position. When this happens, the mares sides often will go "flat" because of the shift upwards and out of the lower belly.

Sure it sounds like she could be at that point. But based on the last pictures shown, she wasn't ready. New pictures would be needed to determine that and to compare with previous pictures posted.

Because you can see it. And she's been contracting. It shoves what looks to be it's shoulder outwards. You can see it. I can't explain what I can see verses what others have observed. Call me nuts but it's stopped moving when she gets in a mood and rolls. She's rolled and layed every day. And believe me...this baby is hard to find when it don't move. I look both sides and I've pressed against it. Yes, I'm aware of no room but you can't deny seeing a baby kick the flank outwards. It's current position is towards the back of the belly not moving.

Any how, I do have a kept observation that I wont relieve yet. I'm not convinced tonight or even tomorrow.
