j4646335 I think she has a little while to go yet too. :) She looks SOOOOO good though! Great job on getting her back to a healthy weight and she's so shiny! A good sign their getting close is to watch how their belly changes, before they go the baby moves back and positions in the birth canal. See where the apex (the lowest point) of her belly is? Before she births it'll be way back and look really weird - almost triangular as the baby moves toward the birth canal.

She's looking so great j4646335!

Oh, wow, just milk veins. Yes, her bag is HUGE!!! Thanks for replying, 'cause I'd never seen that before.

First off, I want to say congratulations on the new horse . I am not terribly experienced with pregnant mares so I have no guess on when she might foal but I just wanted to drop in and offer my support. She is a good looking mare and she's registered. Do you know if the stud she was out with is registered as well? If so, then the foal is registerable and that is a huge plus. Great job getting her back to healthy. I will anxiously follow this thread waiting on baby pictures.

SM Robs...
The "supposed" Sire is registered but they never sent in a breeding, being inexperienced in this area..I have no clue if I'll be able to get the baby registered.. It really dosen't matter too much to 12 yr old boy has already "staked claim" on the baby :)
The Sire is a Solid Black horse with white socks and a white blaze...
So if I come out with a'll know they were "full of it". ;)

UPDATE!! :) <3 <3 <3 We Seen the Foal moving tonight :) Very Excited!!
She was also being very clingy again today.
At first I thought she might be getting aggressive because she kept turning her butt to me.. but then she started rubbing it against the wall...So I'm thinking she was wanting me to scratch her butt :O-
Yes..I do know that's very poor behavior and I shouldn't let her "get away" with it.... She's spoiled... but I did not scratch her rear ,lol :)

hehe that sounds about right! I've seen many pregnant mares push their butt up against the wall and stand that way for hours as they nap, shifting and leaning their weight against the wall as if they were holding everything in. :P She's obviously looking to you for comfort and I wouldn't call turning her butt to you bad behaviour (as it isn't the intent behind the behaviour) as long as she doesn't continue it after the baby's born.... That being said I wouldn't reward it either as she could knock over one of your kids if she tried that with them and they didn't realize as they can put some real weight behind shifting a quarter over.

How's she doing otherwise? Is she starting to stay bagged up? Is her hind end getting that squishy/jello-y look to it?

Yes, that is very normal. A couple weeks to a few days before they foal they will start rubbing their hindquarters a lot. Kind of helps to move the foal into position. How is she doing otherwise? Showing more signs?

She hasn't had anymore "substantial" bagging, her tail head is getting squishy, most notable change is her hips and hind-end is starting to look "poor"....
Trying to find a vet to get out here today....I would really like for a DVM to have a look at her..just for my peace of mind.
