Yes that is Cowboy on the other I started to mention it, but I knew someone would find his leg 😳!

I'll try the antibiotic ointment, your right that shouldn't have too much of a smell. We have tried many different sunscreens and of course a $20 tube (small tube) is working the best, less odor. This is what happens when I miss a day. I basically have to just trick her when she is eating and get it on her the best I can.
I'm sure a fly mask would also work, but your not going to get it on her! Your right she is not halter broke and had first human contact 4 months ago. My uncle tried to halter break her when we first got her so all of this would be easier, but it was too difficult and he was afraid she would loose the foal. We have really progressed tho, she comes to us when called, we groom her and she is getting to where she will even pick up her feet. I'll worry about a halter after the baby.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I really appreciate them!!

We have been watching Sage a little closer these last couple of days. She still has a month to go but she is so big and walking so slow. I noticed the other day she had a discharge from her vulva, this was not normal, so we just started watching her a little closer. She is keeping her distance from the others, Lady did that when she foaled. Normally her favorite thing is to have DH brush her, but today she only let me touch her and I could rub her (like a message) but could not use the brush, it was almost like it hurt. So I messaged her neck and front legs, went to her stomach and that was a no go! Again, normally that is her favorite. So I just hung out with her and talked about how great those last few weeks and days of pregnancy are...not! I'm not a happy pregnant person and I've decided she is not a happy pregnant horse! When our other mare was preg her coat was beautiful, it shined and shimmered, with beautiful dapples. Sage reminds me a herion addict, her coat is not shiny and her mane is stringy and a mess she just looks bad. I guess just like some women look good while pregnant and some don't, the same goes for

Sage, just a few days after we brought her home.

Sage, always looking for more food.

See the difference in these pictures, this is 4 months apart.

Wow are you sure about the birth date of last year's filly? She just looks so ready to pop Like my horse did a few weeks before she foaled. I'm sure each horse carries the weight differently though, just like humans.

The discharge could be the mucus plug. It'll be a reddish orangy color. When my mare lost hers...she foaled 3 days later.

Watch this girl closely.

Cactus' birthday was given to us by the last owner, but we have decided he may have been off by a month or two (ya think!), he also told us Sage was going to foal in April, so unfortunately we really can't trust what he says. He didn't care about the horses, he inherited them from his dad.
The discharge was red/yellow. And she is just huge, honestly I do feel sorry for her every time I see her. We are trying to do everything we can to make her more comfortable. Thank goodness the weather has been nice, she was sweating so bad, but it has cooled off now. We are not going to breed her back, we have figured she has had 7 foals in her 11 years.

I'm going to guess she is going to will foal within a week.

Just got back from checking on Sage, still no waxing but her vulva is defiantly relaxing. I love the anticipation of one day we will show up and a foal will be with her( I know bad things can happen, but I can't do anything about that).

4 days ago and today.
