What kind of hay is she on? fescue (I should really say an endophyte infecting fescue) can cause issues and delayed foaling as well.

Based on my limited experience, I agree with Nancy. That udder doesn't look ready just yet, her bag will get full and usually drip milk or colostrum (my mare didn't but she's not normal 😜).

yea I agree she doen't look ready. hmm. And shes on a four way, wheat, barley, alfalfa and rye. Is that okay? my vet recommended that for my horses? everyone says oat, then people say no oats bad and then they say alfalfa is horrible and then they say rye is just as bad and so on. LOL my vet said this is fine but ive had people tell me vets don't know what there talking about when it comes to hay and feet?

I have only let her out maybe 6 short times on my pasture since she was about 4 months? I only looked out for fox tails. tomorrow ill go searching to see if any of those plants are in my pasture. if so should I call a vet ASAP? I just want mother and foal to be healthy.
