Yes she does. This is the same vet who didnt want to come out to my aunt's to help foal a mare and declared out old mare went through her midlife and out pops two colts later.

Nothing active yet. She's stopped eating. She wouldn't touch her hay or grass. Just slowly munched on grain. I'll be up watching. I've been told by a few breeders she positioning the foal and watch her closely.

From me looking at the pictures, I'd say not yet. I don't see any waxing and she's not dripping any milk. Also, her rump area does not look to have softened, But that's just my guess from a few photos....

Comparing her to Chilly, I don't think your girl is ready yet.

Chilly did not wax the night before foaling, nor did she drip milk. But I knew when she lost her mucus plug and her temperature dropped.

Can you list what signs May is showing that makes you think she's in labor?
- pacing
- sweating
- biting sides constantly
- muscle cramping along the belly
- water breaking
- completely off food
- restlessness
- frequent urination
- excessive pooping

Here is what I was told....

Kept getting up and down for a few hours
Had a full bag (at the time)
Jelly tail set
Grunting and groaning
Laying flat
The inside of her volva was a bluish color/dark red?
Breathing a little loud
They said her volva and anus was being push ouwards when she was grunting on the ground

Heres what I noticed......
Jelly tailhead, volva
Volva was a little open and loos before we took pictures
Nearly filled udder
Laying down letting people approach her which she never lets you while on the ground
Very quiet
Seemed warm, but not sweeting (36 degrees today)
Very loving
Pins ears if you touch her belly but doesnt kick
Pees in small amounts
Poops very lightly and seemed a little loose
Ate a couple poops from pasture-odd
Drank of lot of water
Ate only her grain, no hay or grass, very slow eating and she's a pig
Just standing around

Just what I have. I havent checked her for a while yet. Either way I will be checking on her at least once tonight.

I think I'm going to call it false labor. I just seen her back to stuffing herself.
