    Not really, unfortunately. She got to be out all day today and we walked her around so she'd get some exercise (she refuses to leave the hay, even though she just throws it on the ground and eats the good bits off the bottom!)

    She's still doing a ton of rubbing (butt and everywhere else), tons of tail swishing, lots of belly biting, and this morning she was kicking her belly a LOT. She even kicked the stall wall twice! She's peeing a ton and her stools are about half solid and half soft.

    Her udder is mostly full, but not all the way. (It appeared really full during her "look at me I'm in labor, just kidding" act Sunday, but went back down some).

    Her vulva looked loose today, but super short. We checked it outside and we think she probably really tightened up with the cold air when we lifted her tail, though! Her butt is jello and she had very little tail resistance this afternoon.

    She's also rubbing her teeth a lot, but that's just yet another "sign" she's been doing for days. Despite the mysterious foal she supposedly had that we can find no records of, we are really pretty sure we're watching a maiden horse. There's no way to tell for sure, but I truly believe it.

    Tonight the moon is 99% full and tomorrow it's full, so that means something, right?! I. Want. A. Baby. Lol

    Belly is gone from the back. (This is a huge change from a week ago, even!)

    From what I've heard, the nipples usually start to point outwards (where the foal can easily reach them) before birth, this pic makes it look like they still point in. But I think that can all change very fast.

    Good luck - maybe it will be a Valentine's baby!

    Hopefully with the full moon you'll have a Valentines baby. :)

    Sounds like she has gone "slabside" meaning the foal is in the delivery position. I wouldn't be surprised if you have a foal within the 24/48 hours.

    That's what I thought. Five days ago or so when her belly disappeared. Lol
