    Foal
    While both foals at my riding stable are growing day by day, Smaile finally has decided that she`s ready and starting to show some signs. Her muscles around tail are suuuuper jelly-like, her belly looks smaller ( yesyes, huge anyway, but smaller, then before). And she`s bagging up again - her udder gets fuller every day. I`m thinking that she could do it at 25th April, because of the full moon.
    Here are pictures from today (day 323 for Smaile).

    Do you think it is time to start night checks or she doesn`t look that close.?? I can`t decide on this. In any case, I want to be there when the foal is born, I do.

    Yes, her teats were the only thing stopping me from night checking. But yes, I needed someone to say that I don`t need to start checking her - otherwise I would have started to so before a month or two.
    Yess, they are. I can also see her ribs and spine... Not the best look for her now..

    Foal
    I found something priceless - Smailes foaling records. There aren`t dates of her breeding, only when she foaled though. But I did some calculating. She has had a foal on 03/12/2006 and the next foal was born on 02/21/2007 and the third one on 02/21/2008 ( how precise is that.? ) . So I figured that after Kaliostro (foal in 2006) she was bred at her foaling heat, which is ~ 9 days after foaling. That means she was bred around 03/21 and knowing her long, long heats, last day of breeding was ~ 03/25 or even after that. So in the end I figured, that her gestination length could be around 333days.
    These are only guesses, but well... it`s better then nothing. Because her previous owner just did not remember how long Smaile`s pregnancies were - she has around 100 horses and 20 or more foals each year... She just can not remember what happened before 5 or more years. :)

    Foal
    Smaile is at day 326 today. Her udder didn`t change from how it was in the last posted pictures, until today. It could be a bit fuller, but at the moment it looks quite big even from far. Her butt muscles are still a jello, but today also her tail is very loose and floppy, I can`t feel any resistance when touching or moving it.
    Tomorrow is full moon so... who knows.

    I would start night checks now, she may or may not fill her udder more before foaling ;)

    Yes, I figured.... Her udder has also gotten bigger during this day... Smaile is looking alarmed and funny, walking with her tail up. Though she is eating, but since this is her 5th foal she might be used to this... Also I saw foal kicking today really, really hard- I could even hear it.
    But this is just not the best time for foaling - I`m sick and tonight I should get a good night sleep, because I have exam in Social Psychology tomorrow... Guess I`ll be sitting out and reading books all night.

    Foal
    Smaile is still restless. This morning I saw her standing like she wanted to pee, but she just walked away, when saw me. I didn`t sleep tonight almost at all so I don`t even wan`t to know what`s my result in the exam.
    Here are pictures with Smaile this afternoon... :)

    Her face marking is almost the mirror image of my mare:
