I have three mares due in April between the 6-16th and they are all bagged up about 60% of the way and getting lose in the tail head, they won't be early ( I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure) I think based on her udder picture she still has a month or more to go, and updated pictures?
I had my folks stop in and check on her today...she was fine:) No baby...and FG...Her udders have filled about 4 times the size since the last photo...I will take some updated ones tmo in the daylight...every day there is a bit of yellowish wax in the morning...and again at night...when I squeeze them lightly yellowish liquid drips out...Im keeping her in at night and when we are away for any length during the day...she is happy in her stall now and actually tries to get in when she is out...I think she is growing tired of the other two trying to chase her around in the warm weather...lol they are all full of piss and vinegar...and she is just plain tired...lol my daughter's pony actually jumped on and put her front legs across her back earlier in an attempt to get her to join in on the games her and my gelding were playing....poor annie walked as fast as she could inside the barn and tried to get into her stall...poor girl is not in the mood!!! So if anything...she gets a rest in there....I know we could still have a couple weeks....Ive just heard so many stories involving maiden mares that I don't want to take a chance...especially at night out here with all the cayotes...its creepy...lol anyhow all is good so far...I will keep an eye on her and take some updated pics tmo...the show on the otherhand was great!! My daughter came home with a 3rd, 2 4th's and a 5th....so everyone was happy:):)
Thanks!! Yes she was pretty excited:) still no baby...she is getting grumpier by the day...last night she started bossing my daughter's pony...chased her right out of the barn with a big bite to her butt...usually the pony bosses her!!! There is still a yellowish liquid from her udders and I've noticed her belly is even lower...so who knows....I give up..lol from all the threads I've been keeping up with on here it seems she could stay that way for a while! Its so hard not knowing exactly when she was bread....all we know is that the stallion was in with her since march...and we bought her the second week of may....ughh...even the vet was wrong...she said she thinks she will have a feb baby..ha ha! Ill get some updated pics later when I go out to pic the paddock...it rained all night...melted alot of the snow...now down to -2 and light flurries...between Annie and this weather Im missing half my hair!!!!
Here are some updated pics from this afternoon....Miss grumpy pants has had about enough I think...LOL also threw in a couple happy pics of my daughter's pony lovin on our barn cat Simba...hope you don't mind!
I wish Sizzle would keep herself as clean as Annie does! I swear she's part pig (totally takes after her daddy that way). LOL!
Annie looks like she's progressing nicely...notice how her udder makes a perfect li'l heart? Maybe it's just the weirdo in me to notice stuff like that....go figure. And the pics of Simba and the pony are just darling! LOVE them! :)
Thanks Red Cedar!! They are all shedding something awful right now...Ive been trying to keep on top of it...but I think its a losing battle...LOL Poor Annie is moving slower and slower....this moring I went out to turn her out of her stall for the day and she was lying down....didnt even get up for her morning snack for about 5 mins...usually she is knocking me over to get to it...then she more or less played with it and took her time eating it....I also noticed she still had almost half of her hay in her stall from last night.....now I think she is just messing with me...LOL my husband is like.." she's holding her tail way up!!!!" Im like.."Ya ya...she's been doing that for a week....so what???" LOL She still eventually wondered outside to the roundbale.....so all is good:)
