Subbing!

Is Cactus halter broke yet? Or is it just her who isn't halter broke? I would say try to get her halter broke ASAP once she has the baby!

Cactus is at my uncles, who is a trainer. I am proud to say she is halter broke and leading like she has done it her whole life. This morning I led her around the barn and his property.
I will say it is sooo much easier to halter break a foal than a yearling. I can lead Cowboy (3 1/2 months old) all over our pasture!

Really no change. She just looks miserable.

We will keep it as a trail/pleasure horse for either myself or DH. Even though I claim Cowboy he is actually my sons So DH and I will have Catus and the new foal.

DH has gone to feed the horses, I didn't feel well so I stayed home. My luck he will get out there and Sage will have had the foal.
These last couple of days she really hasn't had much to do with us, she doesn't want to be be groomed or touched. We shall see.
Tonight is a full moon, I was an OB/Gyn nurse for 15 years there were more babies born when there was a full moon than any other time, so lets see what happens tonight 😊

DH just sent me a text, no baby, no waxing.
I haven't been watching the waxing too much because we have had such a mild summer with a lot of rain, our pasture is doing great. Our grass is tall and healthy with dew on it every morning, it could knock off any wax or milk that she had on her teats. I've tried to get another picture of her vulva, but she is not moving her tail enough.


I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I really am hoping for a palomino filly (or colt), I guess sex doesn't matter so much, I'm just hoping for a palomino. The Sire is deep Sorrel and has thrown all sorrel, so we shall see. As along as the foal and Sage are healthy is really all that matters.

DH was able to get a picture of her vulva, it looks as if it is not as relaxed as it was the other day, I'm assuming this is normal?

Vulva 3 days ago compared to today.

My "veteran" broodmare extends and shrinks, and has been doing this for the last couple of weeks. Hard to get a good idea on foaling when they fool us like this!

My mom a non-horse person, was scrolling through my phone looking at pictures on Sunday, and was like " Is that all you and DH do out there, take pictures of her butt and teats"! I told her yep that's the only reason we spend 3-4 hours a day at the barn, I chase Sage to take pics of her vagina (my mom is southern lady, she can't say vagina...lol).
