What colour is her milk? What has always been a sure thing for us is 24 hours after the milk turns white and more milk like.

It's white. It was white 48 hours ago. It was also the first time she dripped milk, and the first time it could be expressed at all. The very FIRST milk we ever saw wa white, and it is still white. She's really not followin the rules at all.

We couldn't get any milk from her udder, despite I being hard and warm to the touch for weeks. No one else seems to have this problem, but we have. Suddenly, finally she's dripping milk and it's white. PH was 6.8 that morning. That night she was still dripping a bit of white milk and PH was 6.2. Then yesterday morning her teats were waxed (white, not yellow like I thought it would be), and after removing it her milk was white with PH of 6.4.

Also, her vulva is light pink again. It was dark red. I guess that can change hours before she delivers, though?

I think you will have a foal before noon tomorrow, but she will probably make sure that you will lose one more night of sleep

Ph is 6.4, milk is white, udder is FULL (finally), hard and warm, and her teats are pointing down and have the shape of... I don't know. They're shaped like they should be for nursing!

Her vulva looked long and swollen, though not necessarily loose. She has absolutely NO tail resistance.

If I hadn't already given up, I'd think she might foal sometime in the next month or so.

Or the next hour... night... day... Kidding. Sounds like she is definitely getting ready.
