    Its supposed to rain all day today off and on and get worse around 6pm. My question is... Should I let her out of her foaling pen today? She wants out to graze, but her udders are more full than usual and the other horses are a bit fresh since a cold front came through... Does she "need" the exercise? Or would it be best to leave her... even though she's going to be mad?

    I let my mare out full run of the pasture all day, and only put her in her foaling stall at night, all the way up until the evening she foaled. They are much, much better off getting out to move around as much as possible. Exercise is VERY important, especially with the impending labor and birth.

    Maybe a good walk/trot and if she can a run would get things moving around in there and get her to go into labor... I know when we are waiting for labor they say walk alot.....

    Alace~ I let her out right after posting and she did run along the fence line for a minute... lol... she looked like a bouncy ball
    Hopefully that gets things moving, and I was thinking the same thing.... a Mothers Day baby... We are having a small storm here at 7ish, supposed to last only an hour at the most, then at 11pm its supposed to thunderstorm until 2am... so, chances are good if its true they foal in storms... if not, my birthday is May 15th... so maybe she will go for one or the other

    I think She must somehow know she has like 100 people waiting to see this little stinker... that's why she's holdin it in forever :) I can't wait either... I think its even MORE interesting since we have NO idea what she's bred to.
    I had a very weird dream last night... I definitely know I've been consuming too much of my life with my mare now :)

    So, last night (in my dream), she had a black and white (mostly black with a white tear drop and a few white splashes on back) filly, only thing was... I saw her starting to foal out my window, and by the time I got out there, there were several people I didnt know, one older gentleman helping pull the baby, because it was AS BIG AS DUSTY... LOL. Then all of a sudden, it sprang to its feet, ran out of the pen, and ran away with a herd of wild horses that were in my pasture... and Dusty acted like she could care less... just went on eating :) WEIRD DREAM... I got up this morning a little panicked :)

    Ah ha hahahaha - you've reached the stage of weird-dreams-induced-by-sleep-deprivation! I'm well familiar with that one. At one point I dreamed my mare gave birth to a shih tzu.

    C'mon mama, let's go!
