I am going to refrase(sp?) what I wrote.
She does know what to do with herself, but that night the baby would not stop moving, and she couldn't walk around to 'settle the baby down'. So, I guess what I was trying to say is that she didn't know what to do because she was in the cross ties and wanted to walk around..

Anyway, thank you. I have been lunging her regularly to keep her in shape(walk trot only).
I am hoping for a colt, but with some white on his face, I don't care about legs, socks are too hard to keep clean. I would like the baby to be Sonya's colour, but a bit darker.
I know what is going to happen though. The foal is going to be a filly, plain ol bay, with no white, and it is going to finish out to be the same height and build as Sonya.

And no, this was not planned. If I had ever decided to breed her(which I probably would'nt have, I would have bred her to something more her size, like a paint or a qh, or maybe an appy. This breeding is too much of a difference for me. A 17hh+ draft to a 14.2 hh grade pony. Weird combo. I had a.... nightmare I guess you could call it, that the foal turned out to have mommy's body and mane and tail, daddy's legs and head, and everyone was making fun of the poor baby. I have been worried that it wouldnt have the right proportions ever since.
Definatley not breeding Sonya after this baby tho.

Ooops, I forgot to put an update up last night. Here it is

*UPDATE*- We think the baby is starting to move towards the birth canal, from the way she is carrying herself, and her belly shape. She is also getting swollen in her 'area' as well. Udders are still getting bigger tho, and one had a drop on it, but that might have just been from her laying down. She is also laying down alot more than usual.
I will post some pics after I go out to see her today.

Make sure to keep us posted and post pictures when the baby is delivered. Best of luck.

Gosh I'm right with you there. I love the draft crosses but my preference (if I had had a choice in the matter rather than ended up with a preggo mare surprise) would be the other way around, a smaller lighter breed bred to a bigger draft mare. My mare is half Shire, but she's only 15.3 and she's bred to a 18.2 hh Shire stallion.

It sounds like she's getting closer though, it's so exciting and nerve wracking isn't it *lol*

Haha, I had a nightmare last night too - that Freyja popped out triplets.

Yes, very nerve racking... Every little thing she does different than normal, I think, Oh, we are going to have a baby tonight.

Wouldn't that be great if she had triplets. Not! I wonder if a mare has ever had triplets?


I wonder if Sonya and Freyja are going to have there babies around the same time? Although Freyja is a little more advanced than Sonya...
