As soon as you're properly miserable.....she'll drop.

LOL! That's why I made my hubby build me to big foaling stalls and hook up cameras so I can watch from inside the house. Since I do foal watch in Feb most years, I got tired of being frozen and wet from running back and forth to the barn. Not even thinking about what it would be like to pasture foal at that time of year!

I can assure you this will not happen again! The high today 90, but it looks like we will be watching her closer tonight. The kicker to all of this... We were assured she was not bred back.... Really!!!!

That is like assuming, lol.... I am just at the point where I laugh about it all and am like "she will have it whenever"... trying not to worry too much or stress.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse."

I think if I ever go through this little adventure that is what I am going to do.

Being able to log in on my computer or smart phone would be one heck of a lot easier me thinks.

The full moon and rain didn't change a thing last night. She is still as big as a house! I feel so sorry for her every morning when she walks across the field for breakfast. She just waddles along. I'm trying to upload a picture from this morning but having problems with photobucket.

Being an OB/Gyn nurse I saw hundreds if not thousands of pregnant women in my nursing career. I came to realize some women carried pregnancy well, they liked it, they were happy and they really did glow. I unfortunately was not one of those women. I never understood what was so great about gaining weight, swollen feet, heart burn, being unable to breath and being kicked and punched from the inside. I've decided Sage is like me she is not a happy pregnant mare. I was looking at some pictures and she is looking pretty rough...lol

A few months ago, she had good color and her face was pink.



And after pregnancy hormones kicked in, honestly she reminds me of a drug addict. Just a mess.



See how dark her face is and around her eyes. I have never owned a pally so it may just be a pally thing, but it just makes me feel really bad for her. She had beautiful dapples at the beginning of spring but they are long gone! I'll see if I can find a picture of those.
Hopefully soon this thread will be of the new foal and not of how worn out she looks!

Not the best picture, but here are her dapples!
