    I actually haven't been . When I go to bed, I don't get back up. Haven't in awhile. But, she's probably not going to bag up. Since she started her bag, leaked milk down her legs and the vet that came out said she probably wouldn't give milk. Because at that time she was drying up. He called it something. A condition. Said that's probably why the owners sold her because she doesn't give milk. I was told she was maiden. Vet said no she's not.

    I take that back, if she is acting funny I do an extra check before bed. But if she's not and acting fine around 9 then I don't unless I'm outside smoking. Only because I worry that the baby will need to eat and I won't be there. So there's about 5-6 hours she's alone. But, my son didn't sleep for a week either so that has wore me out. I still don't sleep good because I had to move him in with me in case he starts having his colon spasms and let me tell you he is not a still sleeper. He kicks my head and everything. So that's my last week and half of no sleep was my baby. And he is my top priority.

    Its hard with so much going on...Im praying she bags up when babe is born so you don't have to deal with that stress...and if the previous owners were lying to you...shame on them...that is an awful thing to do to someone...thank god Sunshine is in your care now:):)

    No change. She's been very stand offish today. Doesn't want near the other mare or me. Didn't want me to touch her at all.

    Still no baby, going by what the vet said saying but, saying he was a couple of weeks off and that the pre o was off by almost 2 months and my what if bred date of April 30th. She would be at 357 today. She's doing lots of stomping, kicking at her belly, biting sides, tail swishing. I covered her in spray and I don't see bugs. But there could be some I'm not seeing.

    ETA I spoke with the vet, I told him there is still no distress. So we are going the hold of the visit out. I think the best thing to do is just wait. Still movement from the foal. So we are just going to cool off and wait it out a little while.

    I am seriously beginning to think our mares have secret phone conversations at night discussing how NOT to foal. "OK if you dance and pivot from side to side you can keep the foal in" I think they also discuss how they enjoy their evil plans of stressing us the hell out. That's it my mare is totally grounded. All privileges are being taken no more phone calls for her!

    Yep, I have flipped out more than I ever thought I would. It's always something. Like oh here she comes start breathing funny lay down and act like your in pain and moan a little. Or hmm if I hold my tail up and a little to the side all day can I keep my owner up checking on me. Oh the joys of not knowing when mares are bred.

    It's a freaking nightmare. I'v been thinking "six weeks out" for a good three months just because the previous owner said she was due between jan and feb...and also because I don't know what the hell I am doing...UGH. I wouldn't trade my mare for the world but the next time I buy a horse if "there is a slim possibility she's bred" is in the ad I'm running in the other direction.
