Is My maiden mare about to foal?

My Maiden mare is about 5 yrs old. She has been acting strange the past five days. She is pacing around her stall. She keeps lying down and then getting right back up. Her tail head and rear end have filled like jello for about two weeks now. Today when I checked on her, her vulva seemed to be a pinkish red, and very stretched. Her udders are not full at all though and I have been really worried. She seems very uncomfortable today, Pawing the ground, stomping, looking at her belly. I need someones opinion. Help.

Until she bags up, it will be really hard to tell when she's going to foal. I like the predict-a-foal kits for testing. They get within 48 hours for most of our mares. She sounds a little colicy to me, what are her heart rate, resp rate and temp?

So you know for sure she was bred on Nov 29th in the pasture, but you say she is maiden? If you know she was bred, then this would be about the right timing. Pics would help.

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.
