    Did the vet give you any idea how imminent she was to foal? Or possibly suggest using Domperidone to help her lactate? Or did he feel it's too late? I've had fair success with Domperidone prior to foaling for a mare who wasn't producing milk, her mother also didn't latate a lot so I was on guard for it. Domperidone isn't cheap but it's worth every dime, IF you have time for it.

    He is supose to be standing by incase I need him back. Yes, he is supose to bring someout in the morning if no foal. He said it would take up to three days for it to fill milk. He said appears to be in labor, but her back end isn't as relaxed as it should be. But he said with her being madien that didn't mean anything. He said some mare that have had foal go from nothing to in labor in a matter of hours.

    Praying everything goes okay and that you will have time to give her the meds before she foals. I'm on pins and needles here for ya!

    OK! I'm not sure what kind of regimen they are doing now with Domperidone but I gave a shot/day for 10 days prior to foaling. That particular mare never got a lot of milk but got enough for the first couple of months and then I started adding Foal Lac pellets to her grain, she and the foal both ate them, and it got us through 4 months that way. After that, we tried one more time to see if she would improve and she didn't, so we retired her from being a broodie.

    The vet said you can see results in as few as three days. Sometimes longer. So I being hopeful she will hold out awhile.

    So, I have found a few things out today. She hates lights period. No flash from camera, not flash lights, that is one of the reasons that I keep thinking she is contracting I believe. When I shine the light even on her behind she tenses up, starts pants, and is dancing around. She is open a little more in the backend, also her bag is a little bigger tonight. But, when we look at her with a flash light she acts funny and I believe this is why we thought she may be in active labor. So, Vet included we was mislead I believe. I feel so stupid!!!!
