    Poor Sage she is moving so slow these past few days. This morning her belly looked so big, she remained me of the old toys " Weebles wobble but they don't fall down"! DH said I was being mean and to remember what it was like being pregnant...lol. She just looked miserable, sad thing is she has at least 2 more months to go! The soonest she should foal is September 24, that is 320 days. My uncle, professional trainer, saw her for the first time in a few months and couldn't believe she had 2 months to go. I just realized I didn't get any pictures of her lately, I'll get some tomorrow.

    Went to feed the horses tonight and as usual they were across the pasture, poor Sage was taking forever to get over to us. The temp tonight was 89 degrees with the heat index around 98, but today it was 99 with heat index 110. Sage was breathing pretty heavy and I noticed her biting her stomach, normally biting her stomach wouldn't bother me, she usually has flies she is trying to get rid of, but tonight there were none. Her bag is full but no waxing. I don't know if its the heat or labor. She should not go into labor until the end of September.

    FYI-We live in rural OK, the large animal vet will not come out because she is not halter broke.

    Checked on Sage this morning, she was breathing better, I really think its the heat. We went ahead and feed her a little this morning, she did not stay around for any grooming or pampering. After she ate she went straight to the woods. That's where they go when it's hot. That was a little odd for her, she usually stays around until we leave. I'll check on her again tonight, this is when I wish we lived on the land with our horses not 10 miles away, but I'm still grateful for what we have 😊

    Thank you, I think it is beautiful, but I am kinda biased...lol
    I finally remembered to take some updated pictures of Sage this morning. She is really sunburned on her nose, I tried to put medicine on it yesterday but was unsuccessful! If it has any odor to it whatsoever she has nothing to do with it!! She has blisters all on her nose. If anyone has any suggestions I'm open!

    Ouch, poor girl. Can you try to put some simple triple antibiotic on it for now while it's still sort of raw? I don't think that should have much smell to it.

    Going forward, she'll need some daily protection from the sun. Waterproof sunscreen is what we use on all our light colored horses at the barn (palominos, greys, paints). There is a smell to it, so that may be disagreeable to her at first, but I think it's something to work on as she's going to continue to burn without it.

    I think you said she wasn't halter broke yet, so this suggestion may not be helpful, but it seems like another thing to help her would be a fly mask with a nose to keep the sun off that sensitive skin (here's a basic one that also seems to have UV protection). As someone who has never halter broken a horse, I can't say how tough it will be to get her to a place where she would accept it, but it does seem like a priority to protect her.
