We have some changes today - during the night Smaile`s udder has become twice the size it was yesterday. At the start I thought that it will decrease its size until evening, but it hasn`t.! I hope that she won`t foal before time. Can that happen - can a mare foal before 320 days and still have a healthy baby.?
Here are some pictures with Smaile and her lady-parts. And my little assistant Olivia - she is excited as well .






And it looks like, that tonight will be "the night" for one of our stable mares Kadiljēra, she looks pretty ready to me. I`ll post some pictures if so. :))

They both are Latvian Warmbloods, but so is every foal, that is born here... Chever`s sire is Oldenburg, dam Hannoverian, Smaile really is a Latvian Warmblood - her sire is half Thoroughbred, half Latvian Warmblood, dam is half Trakhener, half latvian warmbl.
Whatsoever foal will be a real hothead - both parents are.

Still no baby for Kadiljēra. I hope that she`ll deliver that baby untill sunday, because I`m going away for a week but I really want to see that baby in the first day.
Smaile has no changes, guess that`s good. She`s feeling a little grumpy today though - doesn`t eat so much and just stands in a pasture alone, looking around. But that sometimes happens to her - she`s really moody.

I haven`t been home for 5 days now, starting to get really worried. My mother (totally non-horse person, but I showed her how to take care and how to check if Smailes udder is getting bigger) says that everything is ok - Smaile is eating, feeling good, no changes in tummy or udder. But still, I don`t feel good being away from her for so long. Can`t wait to get home.!!
And since I haven`t been in my stable for those 5 days - no update for Kadiljēra though I have a feeling, that foal is there.
There is also good news - Kastors ( who is the reason I`m not at home) is doing great.! We are really getting ready for competition this saturday. :))) Not a foal pictures, but here is my dear Kastors training. :))

WE ARE HOME.! Kastors was unbelievable today - such a great horse.! This was his first real competition, first 100cm and we had a clear round, just one penalty point for time - we had nowhere to rush, as these were his first serious competition. :)) He will be such a good horse in future. Hope that no one will buy him this summer - I want to compete with him more.!! Any way, I`m proud of both of us. :))))))))
In the foal area - no changes. Kadiljēra just doesn`t want to give hat foal up. Will take my camera with me tomorrow and take some pictures with her, so you can see how ready she is. Well, unless there will be foal tomorrow.
Speaking of Smaile - her udder is bigger, like really bigger. And her "hoo haa" is sooooo loosen - that means that I won`t be able to say anything by that, because her actual due date is 8th May. But I think she`ll bring that foal into this world sooner. :) But I`m sooo happy to finally see her myself, I was getting depressed being so long away from her. :(
We are at 308 days today, here are some lady-part pictures. And yesyes, I know I`m spamming, but here is some with Kastors from today`s competition. My mom isn`t the best photographer, but I`m hoping to get better pictures from official competition photographer.

Haha, but well - mares always chooses the most unexpected time to give birth, so you can never know.
Yes, I`m kind of stalking Annie`s thread - cant`t wait for that baby, he/she will be gorgeous. :)

I have great news - Kadiljēra finally decided to let go of that baby - last night she gave birth to a wonderful colt. Went to see him today - he is feisty one - was kicking and running around his stall.





And Smaile also has started to progress really quickly, though it`s only day 313 for her. Her udder is almost full. But I don`t know why it is shiny.?? Has anyone any idea.?? It is shiny for almost a week now...





Also - can a belly drop in like... an hour.? Because I can swear that, while I was mucking out her stall, her belly changed. It`s pointed down more than before. Or maybe that just is a different angle. What do you think.?

Before -

After -
