First of all welcome! I would keep an eye on her especially tonight or even then next week if that because it's possible. It's been a few years since we've foaled a mare. Has her behavior changed any (no apitite, pacing,ect.)

Look for her udders to "wax over". Shell get this sticky waxy stuff on them and that usually is right before a mare foals. We look for it, and once we see it we usually figure shell foal that night or the next....but not always.

It could...itl also look like her tummy dropped. Itll go from being a big round belly to being really "heavy" near her hind quarters...that means the foals getting positioned for the birth canal and they usually foal within 1-2 days after that.

I don't know a whole lot about mini's foaling, not sure how they differ from actual horses in foaling. Though I kinda laughed at your post. They usually do.. unless you have a stubborn mare like mine, whose foal is in position for two days now. :sigh: Normally mares wait until no one is around to foal, so she'll probably go when you're gone, just to inspite of you.
