So we had a wintry mix of a little bit of everything today, but mostly sleet. Yuck. Sizzle was keeping off to herself today and refusing to even go stand in the barn. It even took her a few minutes to decide to come in when I called her knowing full well I had feed for her...normally she's all over me when she sees me heading down there with the feed bucket.
She ate her feed, but basically wanted nothing to do with her hay. This is NOT like my big, red pig. All she wanted to do was go back out...again, if there's food in front of her, you couldn't pull her out of there with a tractor and tow rope! But not tonight.
She was really irritable as well, especially around her hoo-ha. Her udder isn't necessarily really bagged up, and she was puckering her back end up so tight it almost disappeared (once I convinced her to unclamp her tail that is) when I tried to check it, and she was just unusually crazy restless.
The baby, "Tumbleweed," was doing barrel rolls in there so I'm sure that wasn't helping anything. I'll be checking on her again here before bed, but I'm not thinking she's really close to foaling...just acting REALLY weird...and being a maiden, I'm not taking any chances!
Here's the pics from tonight, such as they are. It was really dark, so they aren't the best...

She's a mare, I'll just chalk it up to that. >:/ Cranky, unpredictable, goofy, loveable mares. LOL!
Just got back in, and she's still pacing around, but ate almost all of her hay, so I gave her a little more. Tumbleweed seems to have gone back to sleep, so I have a feeling that's a huge relief for Siz.
I still think she's got another 3 or 4 weeks just by the development of her bag, but then....yep, she is a maiden. *rolls eyes*

"Tumbleweed" is such a cute name:):):) How is she doing now?? Annie is driving me nuts...LOL I keep telling myself not to stress out about it...but then this morning when I went to turn her out...she was holding her tail so high up...I waited in the stall for 20 minutes to see if she was just going to poop or what???? she never did....but her tail relaxed and she started scrounging for more treats....geeze...I was late for work because I was worried about her being outside during the day....but came home tonight...and of course...no change...thank god:) I think I may have a mild heart failure before this is over....

They sure do make it difficult on us humans, that's for darn sure! She sounds like she's really close and was probably feeling some pressure back there which made her feel like she needed to hold up her tail. I have a feeling baby is in launch position. YAY!!
Sizzle is the same, and I really don't expect her to foal before the middle of April now. Nothing is really changing a whole lot since I posted a few days ago....watch her foal tonight just to spite me! ROFL!

Sizzle, Annie and Tica should all have a serious talking to. Maybe together...

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
