shinny nipples???????

Ok people, really needing some help here.
I know about waxing but what does this mean?
She is due on the 20th of this month
Obviously this is my first baby and I don't quite know what to expect other than a baby. Lol
For another thing...
Why hasnt she gotten as wide as I've seen other pregnant mares?

Breed of mare and stallion? Size of both?

Our mare didn't get really wide until the last month.

Her udder bagged up probably three weeks prior to foaling, she was producing clear milk up until the day of foaling, never waxed from what I could tell, never had a "bloody show" in her vulva...yet she foaled. :) They don't always show all or any of the signs the same, but from what I understand the milk color is supposed to be a big indicator. Our mare was kicking her belly (looked like colic) the week before foaling.

I had read a whole stinking book about how to help if something went wrong, what to expect, etc., but in the end, our mare surprised us and foaled in between my 10pm and 1:30am checks on a day that I didn't get any signs she was even within days of foaling!

I would say read and learn about the signs, complications, and have the vet on hand anyway. :)

Just popping in to say that your mare sounds like mine when mine was preggers.

I read, I looked up things, I asked questions... My girl NEVER exhibited ANY of the signs. She didn't even bag up when she was supposed to... no kicking, no rolling around (according to some people, a mare will roll to get the foal into the proper position). My girl got pretty large, but she never had any signs. My girl foaled when I was gone in Altoona for the night... Lol.

Hope your mares pregnancy goes well! The baby'll be a beaut!

If your mare will let you milk her a bit, I find that is the most reliable way of monitoring. Like AK said a the mare will have a clearish liquid coming out of her nipple once she starts to bad up and it won't usually turn milky until the day before of the day of foaling. All my mares have turned milkly the day of foaling.

Can some one please tell me why I can't post pics anymore?
I hit the send botton and wait(dial up) and then it goes either to a blank screen or back to the page where you pick the pic that you want to uplaod

By the way... no baby yet :(

I have the same problem, I've been uploading them to photobucket and then using the IMG Code.
    05-10-2008, 09:13 PM
Thanks but I don't know who to do all that

Photobucket, that the second time I have heard that in here
I don't have it though is there another way?
    05-10-2008, 09:40 PM
Not that I know of. Just go to and make and account. It's really easy to figure out/use.
    05-10-2008, 09:42 PM
Ok thanks but another question is what is IMG code?
Computer illiterate lol
Probably spelled that wrong too
