So, not sure if it will be tonight or not. But, her bag is getting bigger. She has started rubbing her back end on boards of the stall wall. So what am I going to name the baby?!?! Throw some names my way. Mother is sorrel/chestnut. Daddy is possible dark bay Arabian.

I say wait till it hits the ground. A creatures personality says a thousand words in only seconds!!! Makes it much easier to name them!!!

My father in law checked her this morning, weather is better today still a little cold but not a mess. So he let her out for a bit. Nothing happened, of course. Me and my husband went out every two hours in turns so we got to sleep longer. Because he works thirds so tonight will be my last night with him til next weekend. Her stomach is not a v at all this morning. I'm going to to let her graze a bit then go and groom her in the field if she will let me today.

Just went and checked on Sunshine, she isn't as moody as she was. Her bag has went down, but there is a little amount of wax. Her back end is not that relaxed to me anyway. Here is a few pictures.

From those boobie shots, she doesn't look close to me. It may just be the way she does things, but she looks like she has nothing. Although pictures can be receiving...

Agreed. She looks nowhere near foaling. It's hard when you don't know the breeding date. Even though she is maiden, I would only be checking on her morning and night at this point.

Nope, I don't think she is either that's pretty much how they look. They was so big the day before yesterday milk was leaking. She was almost text book foaling yesterday! Then today not a sign in sight. AHHHHH!! I am going to end up going crazy!

Gah! I hope she foals soon

I'm like thanks for the heart attack! Yep she's having fun with me now. I can hear her and the other mare now.... Is that her can you hear her, quick quick lay out like your in labor. Ha ha ha! :(

Is it normal for a mare to go from "so full she's leaking milk" to (above pic) within 48 hrs?
