    Totally off topic but WOW what a cutie! I can see why you love her so! She is a beautiful girl and even if she is bred to the ugliest horse/donkey on the planet, that baby is going to be a STUNNER!

    Corinowalk~ Thanks so much! I love her and she really is a doll... When I got her she was in pretty bad shape and a friend of mine said, "Oh my, that mare is ugly", and really she wasnt, she was just poor and furry and wormy... her eyes are so kind though, and something just pulls me in... I can't wait to see her baby, whatever it is, Im hoping it looks and acts like her. She is really a sweet mare and she has come SO FAR since I got her in February... she would barely lead and she would definitely run to the other end of the pasture when you went to catch her. Now, she leads perfect, you can't hardly get her away from you, she picks up all her feet, and even though she isnt broke to ride yet, I don't think its going to be too big of a task with her newly found gentle laid back disposition. She still doesnt let anyone else but me pick up her tail or touch her belly much :) But I don't mind if she's partial to me.. she will be with me forever as far as Im concerned... and probably her (more than likely) long eared baby as well!

    Wow, she is a looker. From what I can see, her conformation is very solid and she will look like a million bucks after she drops that foal and puts on some more muscle and weight. I am not terribly experienced with foaling mares (I've only had one and she teased me for weeks as well) but I believe that you may have a little bit to go yet. From what I understand, their belly will change shape when they are getting close and there will be more of a point at the bottom and she won't be quite so wide. I hope everything goes well and she and baby are both healthy. After it is born, we demand pix of course.

    Smrobs~ Thanks! And I will definitely be posting pics, and maybe even some videos of the birth if I can!
    Trust me, by the time this is over you guys will be SICK of looking at pics of my Dusty!
    You know whats terrible? I've taken more pics of my mare in the last month than I have of my own kids in the last year! LOL... I will work on that :)

    Just from the pics and her recent behavior... do you think its safe for me to try and get some sleep tonight? She's not really eating much tonight, but she has finished her feed and alfalfa... she's just not interested in her hay AT ALL. But, some nights she's not... and she's rubbing her tail on the fence alot also, mostly standing up against it constantly unless she walks off to pee or pace a little... Im so tired... but Im scared to leave her. What do you guys think?

    Umm well I wish you had Marestare so I could help out but maybe you could set your alarm at a certain time of the night to check on her maybe twice through the night. Just to be on the safe side.

    Thecowgirlranda~ that's a very nice gesture, but unfortunately I don't have marestare... I wish I did! I just went in to clean up her stall AGAIN, and I was going to pet her belly, and the heiffer acted like she was going to bite me! She has never bitten or kicked, only threatened when I was feeling her udders... but tonight she's moody... I can relate I guess...
    As for the alarm clock... well, I hate to admit it, but when Im exhausted like Ihave been the past few weeks, alarms do me no good... I think I get up, walk across the room, and turn it off in my sleep... I never remember doing it the next morning though :) Now, if a kid coughs, IM UP... but since the boys arent here this weekend my maternal clock has gone to OFF :)
