Oh and ignore the previous owner been an idiot on Facebook. I posted tons of boobie photos and girls parts as well as tummy shots when my mare was pregnant and even though ppl got a shock seeing them on their news feed, they understand how crazy I am and how excited I was! So don't let it bother you. Just block her and move on :)

Thanks Glynnis! Its frustrating not knowing the due date and having to deal with such a large window of possible foaling time...Im thinking I will leave her up in the winter paddock where she can come right into the large run in within the barn...Im keeping it with fresh straw bedding daily and she lays down in it quite often...I can always move the other two to the back paddock...they will still be able to see her...but not bother her...Im just so worried about all of them...lol...my gelding is very in love with Annie too...thinks he is the father..lol so I know he wont be impressed with this whole separation thing...Im starting to bring her right into the closed side of the barn nightly to groom and give her treats...she follows me in circles...lol its actually allowing me to work on her ground work...even in a smaller space...she is listening very well...stands patiently while I hold her treat pan and fill it with her feed etc...then she knows she cannot rush into the pan...its pretty cute...she backs up about three steps...lowers her head as if to say "please may I have it now??"...she knows then I will place it on the ground and she can enjoy!
Thanks for all the wonderful comments!! Im so excited...if this foal is anywhere half as smart as its mother I will have hit the jackpot!!!

Yeah, that would be tough. And given that we live in the land of ice and snow, you never know what Mother Nature is going to throw your way. The plan you have sounds good. Will it still be warm if the temperature takes a sudden dip?

You are right there! And yes...its not extremely warm inside..but out of the elements and much warmer than being directly outside in the cold. If this weather keeps up...who knows...right now its 3 degrees...supposed to go up to 9 by friday and rain....Im really hoping she holds on until april...lol this back and forth is worse...it was -10 2 days ago...uggghhh

Well luckily, Ontario (at least southern Ontario) doesn't get as cold as it does here. It's been known to go down into the -20's and even -30's in Spring snow storms, though not frequently. I'm sure she will be just fine, but I'm still hoping that she holds out until April. :)

Lol yup. To digress for a moment, I still remember a massive snowstorm we had here on April 20, 2008... don't ask me why I remember the date. I lived in a cul-de-sac with room mates and the way we were situated, the snow drifted across our driveway and across the entire cul-de-sac. We parked one behind the other and the first person trying to leave got stuck, trapping us all in. Then the 2nd person got stuck... long story short, we all got stuck. The temp was in the -30's and the wind was amazing. Not fun trying to push cars out in that type of weather.

So from an Albertan perspective, a cold snap in April is not unheard of... not usual, but it happens. You tend to have much more milder springs than us though, so I'm hoping all goes well for you in that department!

I haven't posted on here in a while...things are crazy busy...on top of everything else with our horses etc...we are opening a tack shop in april....so lots to do to get ready!!! Miss Annie is progressing well...Im going to take some pics of her tonight when I go out to give her treats:) Last night I swear the foal pushed both of his feet out the side of her stomach!!! My friend and I were watching and almost fell over!!! It was so funny to see!! Im getting very excited about the foal...I am however hoping she holds on for at least another month when the weather will start being a little more cooperative!!
