Here are a few pics I got this evening when I got home and checked on Sunshine, this is where she will be put when she foals. What do you all think? We have no lights out there yet but will by this weekend, I have taken extra shifts at work at night to buy extra things to upgrade everything I have because we have not had mares foal in a few years. The pics aren't great as I took them with my camera on my phone we will let her out with our other mare in the morning I will grab so pics then too. She came right up to me and loved on me :) wanted kisses! I love this mare!!

So true, mares are very sneaky. I was darn lucky to get to witness and assist with two live foalings, still an experience i'll never forget. Are you going to keep the foal?

Being horseless is the pits!!

From the first pics where you have the kid on the mare, she looks to still be carrying from side to side and not dropped yet. Can't tell if she's looking like she's started bagging or not yet.

What do I rely on for foaling:

(I now have my dream foaling stall, power for lights and a camera so I can watch from inside the house.)

Power for lights
Lights
Camera
Straw for bedding
5 gal bucket w/lid for placenta
Shot glass (for dipping the umbilical stump)
7% Iodine (if you can get it, I haven't been able too for the last 2 years, f'n drug addicts anyhow)
Towels
Foal Saver Blanket
Tube of Colostrum for the foal, if needed
IgG test
Predict A Foal Kit, I LOVE THIS THING! It's not a necessity, but it sure does give a good heads up.

This year, I was looking at Honey and she looked like, "Yeah, tonight's the night", but I was figuring on past midnight. I did the foaling prediction and RAN to town to finish up my last minute things I needed and when I got back she was dropping down to foal. If I hadn't done the kit, I'd have missed the whole thing because I'd have taken my time in town. Because the test changed color so fast, I KNEW that baby was coming quick.

Yes, I am planning on keeping the foal. I will have to run to the rural king in town tomorrow to see what all they have. We have cords ran for electric because we run fans during summer, just have to get some lights hooked up. You all are so great! Thanks!

Oh, and also I have heard and read mixed feelings on this but was wondering if it would be ok to just set my kids on her while I walk her to the barn for maybe 10 minutes a few times a week to get her use to them and them to her. I know after she foals we will not do this and once I see sure signs that she will foal within the next few weeks then I will stop, the lady talked like they rode her all the time so she should be fit.

I don't see why she couldn't carry little kids for a while yet. If she acted uncomfortable then I'd quit but with my mares that are broke to ride, I ride until they're in the 10th month if they don't act like it's an imposition. Granted, it's all stuff like you're talking about, just a gentle walk for a moderate amount of time, but I do ride 'em.

*Pictues*

I let Sunshine out today to meet her new friend, I think things went well. No kicking, hollering, or running. (yet) The mare she is out with has a misplaced cantle ? Sis in law said? Bone so she can't really run and kick as she may like to but, both was well mannered mares this morning. :)
