Pregnant Miniature mare driving family crazy...

My Miniature mare, Daisy, is at day 325 (the breeder we bought her from has been breeding for 30+ years and the latest she has ever had one of her Mini's go is 327) and she has been showing almost all of the signs of foaling within 48 hours for over a week o.O Her utter is all taught, she has the dent above her tailhead, her belly has dropped really low like the foal is getting in position, and she is very restless (and cranky too lol) . Last night we even had a "false alarm".

MY whole family is becoming extremely impatient xD The alram around her collar goes off at least 10 times know between 1 and 4 in the morning, and we constantly watch the camera like crazy D

So, is anyone else's mare playing the waiting game with you too? What's the latest you've ever had a Miniature Horse go?

Has she still not had it? I would think she would have either had it around the 24th (new moon) or around the 7th of june (full moon)

I'm waiting and waiting to for our pony all the signs are there...I'm guessing maybe if not before then on the 7th. Prior experience with other animals they will deliver as close to or on a new or full moon soooo good luck to you hope everything goes well!
