Dont worry about your mare not being as bigg as others! My mare was the same way. I was always like wow shes smaller and uder developed compared to others.. but over night Boom she developed a nice udder and her volva is super relaxed and her tummy droped even more! So shell do it when her bodys ready. As for not drinking idk my mare drinks like crazy haha but every mare is diffrent!!! I am so excited that somone is a walking zombie with me, checking on our mares so much hahaha
Hahaha! I can't say I'm a walking zombie YET, but I know it's coming. Since she's actually my Mom's horse, she's about 10 minutes away from me. I get an update at 2am when my mom gets home from work, at 10am when Mom wakes up, at 1pm before Mom leaves for work, and in the evening when my sister goes home. (She's also an adult, but lives with our parents)... However, as soon as we start thinking she's really close, I'll be staying at Mom's (potentially with my kids, since they don't want to miss it, either) sleeping in the barn... Then I'll officially be a walking zombie with you! lol
Don't usually drinks almost twice as much as Gus (the Tennessee Walker), but last night she barely touched any of her two buckets of water. I'm sure it's fine, but of course I've half convinced myself that any tiny change in the way she acts means she's going to have the foal. (Note that she still barely has an udder, so I'm just being paranoid.)
I'll be at the farm tomorrow, Thursday, and Saturday (my mom can't get rid of me on her days off. Poor lady! lol) and I can't wait. I may have to drive out tonight to check on her, just in case. My sister will be there, but she's not the most "in tune" with the animals, so I may have to go check on my own for peace of mind.
Your mare sounds like she's getting SO CLOSE! How often are you checking on her these days? Remind me what "Day" she is? I've read your thread (going there to check again in a minute), but I forget. Good luck!
