She's acting very strange today. She is out grazing and she will almost sprint to the stall. I'm not sure what that's about. Me and my son have been out back playing all day so I've been just watching her out in the field and she is just not acting herself. But, she's still grazing some and not rolling or nothing.

Maybe all the watching is making her paranoid.....

Let's have the baby, I look everyday at the thread hoping, oops... now I am being paranoid it will happen when I am not reading the threads everyday

She's still acting strange. I haven't been able to look at her backend. She's stomping and kicking so much that I haven't even tried for pictures.

Dang! I have just read this whole, and was totally expecting there to be a foal in this page. Nope,I guess this mare's going to keep us on our toes! Can't wait till this foal is born :)

So I went out earlier when it was getting dark and she has this hard knot, its not soft like the other ones. And it is far back to where when she walks she touches it with her leg. It is on both sides, and it feels like her bones are there then there is this ridge and it sticks out. I don't know if its the baby or what. I am not sure if you can see it in the photo or not. I know its there so I can. It is where it is a v at the back, but her whole belly isn't a V shape its just back there. I wonder if this is why she was acting so strange and stomping and almost sprinting around today. Do I need this looked at? Or is it normal? I hate to call my vet out right now if it is normal.

I Believe what you are seeing is the bottom of her rib cage. Baby appears to have dropped substantially since the last set of photos and is likely pushing down making her ribs stick out oddly. She definitely has more of the triangular shape to her belly that goes with a mare that is getting close to foaling. It may not be too much longer now.... Or could be a while! Mares can be tricky for sure!

Ok! Thank you! Yes, her belly does have a triangle shape to it today, but the point is at the bottom of that photo so I didn't think the baby had dropped. But, from her udder to that point looks stretched and it looks tight and feels very hard. But, I didn't push real hard. Its nots as dropped as I have seen.

Dear Little Baby....

We are ready for your big reveal as this has been taking a while and frazzling many of nerves (including your human mommie). We don't know how much more of his we can handle.... That's all!!

Thank you,

Your Admirer

No baby this morning. She is peaceful this morning. I'm drinking my coffee and watching her. I'll get pictures after the kids get off to school.

I was gone all weekend, peaked in on the Texas thread, but didn't get here yesterday, just knew there would be a baby by now! That belly looks like that baby is making ready to come out! Good luck!
