No problem. I spent MONTHS on foal watch only to have her not be pregnant (she either never was or aborted/reabsorbed early). It will drive you crazy! Prayers for a healthy baby soon!!!

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse."

She laid down, took a nap, rolled a bunch, jumped up and started pushing. Now she's just eating hay. I'm not even kidding. Lol

Still watching on the monitor. Expect baby pictures tomorrow. Today is officially her due date, too. A mare who plays by the rules! Lol )lots of pushing off and on, rolling, digging at ground, and belly bites.)

She was clearly in labor for 7 hours. Then the sun rose and she STOPPED. I knew they could do that, but we weren't disturbing her at all so it was still a surprise. The vet laughed at us, said she wasn't surprised, and told us to watch closely and expect a baby today or tonight. I should've known she wasn't going to play by the rules! Lol thanks for checking on her

OMG two weeks? I won't survive. Don't had us on the edge of our seats last night. Rolling, pacing, belly kicks, pawing at the ground, biting her belly, rubbing her teeth on the wall, up down, up down, peeing a TON, and two piles of really soft poo. Her tail was up and she was swishing it like crazy. This ent on for a couple hours. Right after the first liquid poo, the donkey went NUTS braying for NO REASON and she started slowing down. He did it AGAIN just when she started rolling and stuff again. And then the dogs in the other side of the barn started barking. She slowed down and STOPPED. Either she is amazing at taking labor or she is amazing at stopping labor. Tonight it is going to be like -9, so Mom is hoping she doesn't go tonight.

Did your horse seriously mimic labor that bad for two weeks? I will CRY. Lol The vet seems to think she stopped labor, but if you are saying that horses just PRETEND sometimes, I'm going to curl up and cry. Lol goin on 12 hours of sleep since Wednesday morning. She is watched 24/7 in shifts. I take a lot of shifts though because I can't sleep here. I nap in the morning.
I'll go through my pictures and post a couple in a minute!

Not the best picture, but it's a picture of the monitor we were watching. Her belly in this picture cracks me up! I love it.
