[QUOTE=texasgal;2342377]Her face marking is almost the mirror image of my mare:

Yes, they really look similar in a way. Your mare is really pretty. :))

So... It`s 1.30 AM, I`m exhausted, but Smaile looks... Well she could be just laughing at me and pretending to be this ready... But her udder has filled fully - it`s hot and hard. Her vulva is really swollen and inside of it is bright red (I hope that it doesn`t just look that way in flash-light). And she looks funny. She is breathing hard ( it is not that unusual for her, since she has some respiratory problems, but the air is fine tonight, it`s rather chilly, so she shouldn`t breathe like that). I think she is starting to sweat. And it is full moon - last year all the mares in my riding stable foaled at a full moon.
Maybe I`m just getting delusional because of my lack of sleep and because I want that foal on the ground sooo much.
Anyway, my foaling kit is ready, I`m making myself an espresso, so keep your fingers crossed for us.!!!!

Sorry it took so long to update...
No baby here - she settled down at around 5AM. I feel so foolish. And I`m exhausted, just want this all to be over - I`ve waited more than 2 years for this foal, it feels like the wait will never end.
Can`t imagine how hard it is for those of you, who are on the foal watch for weeks and months....

Smaile is very calm tonight, don`t think that she could foal. Though this would be a great night to do that, since I`m soo excited about Kristaps results at FEI World Cup Finals and don`t think that I can sleep tonight. Maybe Smaile will foal at Sunday - receiving a foal would be the best way to celebrate his success. :))
Keep your fingers crossed not only for Smaile, but also for Kristaps.!!! :)))))

Not a lot of changes here. Except that Smaile is veeeery uncomfortable today - swishing her tail, kicking her belly though there is no bugs yet.
Her butt muscles (well, the place they used to be) is looking extra creepy - they are moving like a jello when she walks. Her tail is loose. Last two days she is trying to hide her hoo haa from me - every time I lift her tail to take a look, she tightens it as well as she can.
And her udder is.. It is hard and her nipples are full, but it increases its size in the day, but becomes super-huge in the evening ( it takes like a half hour after putting her in foaling pen to fill). And her milk veins are huuuuge.
Here are pictures from this afternoon. :)
