Snowflake is anywhere between 14-17 as the original owners weren't for sure either. And yeah I don't blame them for hanging on for that warmer weather around the bend!

Alright this was from today. Notice she is waxing on one teat! And look how full those teats are! Phew I am getting excited! Lol her belly has dropped some more. And I actually don't think it will drop any lower. As she had a huged drop belly when we brought her home. And now since she has gotten closer it shrank up and moved back and now it dropped lightly again. So we'll have to wait and see. She is beginning to look skinny from certain angles. Which is worrying me. She is eating just as normal as ever. Maybe it's just the baby pulling down on her making her look skinnier?
YouTube - 90lilkitty90's Channel and this video is from our walk. I was trying to get her grunting and groaning like she usually does. But of course she only does it like 3 times... but here is our walk and you can kinda see how she looks when I can get out away from her. As she likes to follow you closely

Ok last update for tonight! She has waxing on both teats! Don't know if it's a significant amount to mean anything. But she seemed VERY uncomfortable today. And while we rubbed on her sides she kicked around. Her vulva also seemed relaxed and very open.

Question! - k i'm not sure how you guys do this. But I was doing some researching. And it says we should milk mom after she has the baby. And feed the foal every 20 minutes with a bottle untill it finally stands and drinks on it's on? Should we do this? Is it really necessary? I see no use in it but if it's needed then we'll go buy a bottle to use for the foal.

I got videos on the way once youtube starts working with me. Of her labor pains/contractions/foal movement/ breathing idk what it is but it's something so i'm getting it in here. I also got videos of her vulva so i'll get those on probably in the next post

I also want to talk names! I need filly and colt names. I only have one colt name in mind which is Sparta. But i'm still open for suggestions! I'm definitely hoping for a filly though. Don't want to have to go through the whole gelding process but i'm having a feeling it's going to be a little colt. Since I bought a purple halter and light blue blanket for the foal. Which is girly. I'm sure it's going to come out a colt lol

Foal
Thanks for the updates.. I check at least twice a day to see if we well you have a baby yet.. lol . I am getting excited for you. I am not an expert or anything but I have been lucky enough to have had 5 foals born in good health. I have never had to bottle feed any of them , I never milked my mares.. Now I had a friend whose mare had twins and she did bottle feed for a week or so to help mom out , but the mare actually was able to raise both babies..

Unless there is a problem, then no you don't need to bottle feed the baby, chances are by 20 minutes it will be up already.

Looks like you are getting very close!

I was going to reply to your video posted earlier that her edema looks somewhat better.

That "skinniness" you are seeing is likely due to her topline and rump muscles relaxing and caving in in preparation for delivery-- especially in older, experienced broodmares, this can make their back and croup look downright bony. Sometimes when the baby is moving into position the mare's belly looks smaller/narrower as well.

Her teats are certainly filled out, and that wax makes me think tomorrow night.... if I had to guess!

Good luck, and an early congrats, and please post pics!

Thanks snazzy I am getting VERY excited myself! Lol I check on snowflake twice a day. And I meant to go back over there at 3 but my little mind couldn't handle it as I passed out at around 2 so i'm going to go check on her and feed her before school hoping therei s a baby there but I am thinking it will be tomorrow as well. And thanks easttowest. I notice her edema was getting much better as well. I'm still looking for those sides to sink in. But she's such a fat mare and her edema mishapens her tummy i'm thinking it maybe have already dropped but because of the edema in the back you can't really tell.
