My Mare is due anytime....Hurray!!!

Hi everyone!! This is my first time using Horse Forum and I have to say that this is really cool!!
I have a question about my mare. She is at 345 days gestation today and she has been acting kinda strange today. She was kinda of walking the fence line today and not eating much hay or grass out side. She was swishing her tail a lot and seemed agitated so I brought her in early. She kept whinning out to the other horses so I brought everyone in and everytime I would walk by her stall she would start to nicker at me. It was kinda cute but not like her. She also started to have distended nipples since yesterday morning. She has been bagged up for about four weeks now and her stomach dropped about 5-6 days ago. Her milk is extremely sticky and a cloudy clear color. Her gestation was 364 days last year but it was in April and she was a maiden mare. She gave birth to a colt too last year. She ate all of her dinner tonight but wasn't interested in her hay. Kinda interesting huh? I am so excited and I wanted to get your take on this. Have a great day everyone and I can't wait to see that baby!!! I just hope she does ok. It makes me so worried that things aren't going to go right but I pray that she does ok. Thanks everyone and I look forward to your thoughts.
