We are unsure, we bought her already in foal. The vet came out on the 13th of march and did a palp and said she was 10-1/2 to 11 months then. She has had waxing since Friday evening late. It is honey and thick and moldable like sap from a tree. On and off. We have had issues with her leaking milk about a month and half ago then the vet that was out said she was drying up. So we are unsure as to if she will produce milk or not. The owner said that she was 10 months when we brought her home. Feb 10th!!!!! So who knows what is going on. But, she to me is showing signs of labor yesterday and today. Pacing, panting, sweating, kicking, laying, biting, panic look in her eye, backing up to everything and scratching, nickering lots, stomping, I think this is about all. But, the lady I am switching to for trainer/lessons is coming in the morning to trim her and my other horse so she will be able to tell me something I am sure. She has been in horses for over 10 years and does it all with them. Everything, and seems to have lots of knowledge. I am kin to the other lady that has been working with my kids and horses so I am making the change to someone not family.
