Hey I figured it out
Ok so this is my pregnant girl. She is due on the 20th of this month
Was wondering why she didnt get very big or wide I should say,
And I didnt know what it meant that her nipples were shinny
Had the guy I bought her off of tellme that she was just cleaning them
So tell me what ya'll think [/img]
Wow she is not that big at all. Is this her first foal. I wouldn't get to worked up judging from her udders she still looks a ways off (unless she is infact a maiden mare)
Here are pictures of my mare. She is not due until June1-June15 (We have to have her bred lots in order for her to catch) These pictures are a couple of weeks old. This is Kita's third baby. She was breed as a two year old (not by us) Then when she was 6 She had Tika and the one in the belly will be number three!
No this is her 3rd baby(first with me)
She has a 7 and 5 yr olds
So you see why I am concerned
Her udders are alot bigger now that pics was taken about a week ago
She is 97% foundation and the daddy is 100%
And neither one of them are very tall
Starr is 14 2 hh and the daddy is about the same
She is probably going to have me a little draft pony lol
Don't care, will love it just the same
This may sound really weird, and i'm sure youve checked, but was she confirmed in foal by a vet?
I only ask because I knew a TWH mare that a BO bought from a dealer who said she had been 'exposed' to a TWH stud. Well, the darned heiffer was growing a HUGE belly (had been wormed), udder was bagging up - so the BO decided to put her on mare care - - she fed that mare and fed that mare - and her belly got bigger and bigger. Well, 11 months went by; no baby. It wasn't till after the 12th that the BO decided to have a vet out....you guessed it; no baby.
Looking at her sacks...its normal. When she waxes up, she will drip thick colostrum and it hardens leaving a creamy white drip from the hole in the teat. This is usually (possibly longer or shorter) 24 - 48 hours before birth. You will notice it and its your sign she's ready so don't worry.
I really hope you are wrong kickshaw
It seems like I have waited for my christmas morning forever.
I agree she is not very big and I am concerned but God I pray there is a baby in there.
Here are some pics I took just this evening.
Today when igot home she(Starr) had tiny ring of blood around her ummmm vagina.
I called a couple people I know and they said not too worry that I still have a couple days
What do you all say?
