Have you contacted your vet at all since posting the other thread?

how can you say she is "not definately" pregnant when she is showing all the signs of labor and has waxed teats? you should have had the vet out the second there was any possibility of pregnancy

He knows when you're happy, he knows when you're comfortable, he knows when you're confident,
and he always knows when you have carrots.

Waxing comes before dripping, odd.....Um why would you think she isn't pregnant? Was she exposed some how? I'm a little baffled. Is she a new horse to you and maybe you weren't told if she was exposed? How do you not know if your horse is in foal?

well, now im just hoping you can find a vet or at least someone very experienced with foaling. i really hope you find one if she is indeed going into labor! hindsight is 20/20 eh?
