    I know she's not filling up much. I have never had a mare with droplets like that third picture I posted. Did your waxing completely cover nipple and move up the udder?

The second post of the picture I put on here, that white looks like it is spreading everywhere. I was afraid to clean it because I didn't want to unplug so she would leak more. But should I just clean her?

    You may want to get the vet out, palp her, give her a physical exam. That would be the best course of action for peace of mind and expert advice. The palp exam to check to see if she is indeed in foal or having a false pregnancy and a physical exam to see if there is anything else that might be a problem

    Keep us posted

    The vet saw her the 10th of Feb. Confirmed foal. The vet tech is supose to talk with him and let him know what's going on with her and he's going to call me back so I know when to expect him.

    Only one of my mares waxes and it looks like candle wax dripping off the nipple, my mare will get that crusty looking stuff sometimes when they cycle.

    The vet said she's drying up. :( That he thinks she will not produce milk.

    Sounds like you need to order colostrum and milk supplements just incase you need to bottle feed

    Has she been on fescue at all?

    You need to get colostrum and a milk supplement specifically for foals (calf supplements wont do) right away.

    That's kind of what I'm thinking. She has no bag now from the pictures.

    Definitely keep us posted, and I would suggest possibly buying some colostrum and milk replacement such as Foal First or Foalgro

    I have both on hand. Thanks y'all for being great!! She is out in the stall and isn't feeling great. She just acts like she don't feel well and is having lots of bowel movements. She is also tensing up at times. So I'm thinking maybe we will have a baby before to long, maybe not tonight but I'd say within the next day or two.
