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.

*Insert something witty*

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.
