    Foal
    That would be a great idea if it was possible, but alas it is not... What I'm planning on doing is watching her closely n when she starts to wax up, I'll take time off work until she drops, that way I can be with her as much as possible....

    Won't be the first time I've fallen asleep in a pile of straw waitin on a baby... lol... Its just that last time it was a calf I was waiting for...

    Just note that not all mares wax... mine never do (although it's more uncommon to wax in minis than it is to actually wax)

    Hey Skittle have you had your vet out to look at Storm yet? Storm is a great name. My oldest boy Robbie named a cat at the barn today. The cats name was storm but Robbie said he didn't like it so I asked him what he wanted to name him and he said to name him Boots. I like that name. Robbie and Bret are excited about PT's baby because they get to help with the naming of this baby.

    No, I haven't found a vet I like... There is one local that says she'll come look at her, but she bathed my boyfriend in Rabies vaccine when we took my dogs and cat in for their shots, so there's no way I want her anywere near my horses.... Besides that, Justin will be mad if he found out I had her out here...

    Finding a good vet is the worst thing about living as far from a major city as we do... There's a few around here, but ones almost better off to not call them cause they just overcharge you to do something you could have done yourself... That's why I've figured out how to do a lot of the vet care myself...

    She was so busy b*itchin at me because my Aussie was a couple days overdue for his vaccine that she wasn't paying attention to what she was doing and put the needle back out through the skin on my beagles leg and instead of the vac goin into the dog, it shot all over my boyfriends shirt... Then the stupid twit didn't even apologize, and tried to blame me for it, while I was standing in the corner holding the cat...

    Needless to say, I was NOT pleased... My animals will go without vaccines before they go back there... Fortunatly there is a good small animal vet not far away and one that's quite a bit further away that I can get vacs for the horses from and give them myself...

    I have a few mares that I breed every year and I leave them out on mmountain pasture untill they foal. I have had mares at home to foal but horses rarely have the same problems as cattle do. You can just about bet that the closer you watch her the more likely she will foal while you are at the store getting a pop or eating dinner. Another way to tell if a horse is getting close is to look at the vulva. When it gets big and loose looking then the time is near but this varies to particularly with maiden mares.

    Yeah, I won't be dealing with that vet again. I do need to find out what shots Storm needs before she foals so I can get her up to date...

    Storm had a little bit of a runny nose and watery eyes, but they've cleared up and she's looking very good now...

    Have you gotten the book that I told you about? That book will give you the vaccines and when they need to be given to her. I will only have one mare giving birth next year my gray mare named PT.
