Needing Help!!

Need Help! I'm not real sure about having a mare foal but I think that my horse holly bug is getting really close.... she looks to me like she has dropped and I can get some cloudy looking liquid from her teats... her tail head is still firm though. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you have her tail wrapped and is she in a safe well bedded area??

Do I need to? Do you think that she is that close to foaling?

Foal
Thats my problem I don't know when she is going to foal the told me that it would be in spring.. but besides that I have no idea... I know that some people say that there tail head will get soft and their bag will feel and they will drop... and she has dropped alot and I can get some cloudy fluid out of her teats but her tail head is not soft... so my question is does anyone have any idea about how long it might be? And would pictures help?

Pictures would help, but I would also recommend getting a vet at the ready, if you don't already have one... they would be able to tell you what to watch for and when to call for help if foaling problems arise...

Good luck, and here's hoping for a happy healthy mom and baby.

Ok..first off...has a vet.not checked her at all during her pregnancy? Second off when you say tail head what part are you looking at? Third pictures would help a little bit..but still not an exact!

Foal
This is holly bug

Ok this is pictures of holly I got pictures of her belly and her teats... when I said tail head I mean where the tail connects to her butt.... yes when we first got her we had a vet run coggins on her and gave her shots he said that he wasnt sure how far along she is without sedating her and she was already really stressed out... but he said that he thought she would foal in spring also... so here are some pictures....

She's appears to be close, she is loosening around the tail head see how it dips in. Her teats appear to be full of milk. I couldn't give you a date but it will be soon.

There were actually a series of shots that she should have had througout her pregnancy, but regardless now I would definitely contact a vet and let them know you have a soonly arriving foal, just in case something goes wrong (see Penny's thread posted today)...

Your mare should definitely have access to a warm, deeply bedded (with Straw, not shavings) stall and make sure her run is baby proof. When the baby is born, the vet will need to come out to make sure the baby and momma are good and to examine the placenta to make sure it all came out, etc...
