Sonya looked like that 2 days before she foaled. Pretty tight and not very much milk. She waxed up 5 days before she foaled, and started leaking-like you could see the milk coming out from 10 feet away- 2 hours before she started foaling. She urinated over 20 times within 10 minutes.
Good luck and I am hoping foal a foal in the next 48 hours!

I'll try to get a pic from the back tonight. End of July? Hmm.

I'm hoping the foal comes soon!

Do you know when her breeding dates are? Is she overdue? Or even close to her due date? If she is overdue I highly doubt she will make it to the end of July.
She doesn't look like she will hold out for that long to me. Maybe more like a week and a half at the latest, at least that's what it looks like to me... although mares are difficult to read.

We don't know her breeding date as we bred her a few times to make sure she took. She was bred between June and August, that's all I know. Minis usually foal at 310 days

Do you remember all the times you tried to breed her,like the days?If you do try doing the math,you might have a week to go or more.

I agree with TinRoses, doesn't look ready yet but you never know how quickly they'll change! :)

Thanks guys! We don't have much experience with this kind of thing so thanks for the input! I probably would have been camping out in the barn for the next month haha!

We bred her on the 17th of every month. 17th of July and 17th of August, also the 4th of August. I'm not sure if we bred her in June....I don't think we did.
