When was the pic taken?

Here's Boo right before she foaled:






Boo is so freakin' huge in the body that she never looked as down in the belly as your mare does. But then, she didn't even really look pregnant until the last month before she foaled. Her udders though.....She was a Jerseymaid COW. I think you can see that she was loose in her tailhead area in the bottom pic.

ETA, see the sweat on her side? She was already in labor when I took that pic.

This one was just before she foaled too, you can still BARELY see the baby bump from side to side. I'm used to most of my mares looking like a pot belly pig and kind of waddling just before they drop, but not Boo.

The pictures I just posted were taken this morning.

I don't think Sages udders were as big as Boo's when she was nursing Cactus! Wow, those were big.

LOL! Boo's a Heffah! I was feeling really sorry for her, having to haul those things around.

Ok, if that was this morning, I'm going to say, "Not yet.". She'll drop and get almost flat sided and from the side it will look more like a V than a "U" when she's just about ready to go. Dadgum auto correct!

Sage had a filly last year (we have her, Cactus) the previous owner said he thought she was born 10-31-12. If that is correct and she was bred back at 9 days (the stud always stayed with the mares) 320 days would be Sept 24. The reason we have been watching her sooner is, the previous owner had many (20-30) mares and would tell you he didn't care for them and didn't pay any attention to them.

I really do think she is going to hold off until the end of September. She may be as big as a house, but she is just not quite ready.

Sigh.........gotta love these Okie farmers.....sigh..... Well, she looks like she'll go real soon anyhow! I calculate that if she got bred approx 11/09/12 then she's "due" (342 days) around 09/16/13. So she could go any day now if she's a 340-345 day mare. I'd be looking for wax on her teats and keeping a very close watch on her from now on.

I was off on my calculations 😜😜😜 Thanks!
I try to keep an open mind on her previous owner as he is a family friend, but he is the first to tell you he doesn't care for the horses, he inherited them when his father passed away. But the more time goes by the more we are finding out, he really just put them in the field to fend for themselves. No vaccines, wormer, they have never seen a farrier! It's a mess!

I'm not slammin' on him at all. There's a lot of the Okie farmers who do the same thing. They figure if the cows do ok on it, it must be good enough for the horses. Since I'm a horse lover it makes me cringe but it's their way.
