    She is HUGE ... but doesn't look exceptionally close.. imo. Her bag hasn't slicked off, nipples are still pointing inward, and her belly is too wide, not shaped at all like a baby in position.

    These things can change fairly quickly, but I wouldn't be on high alert just yet.

    How many foals has she had?

    Go Tenny! So many people are rooting for her and she has no clue haha. Yeah, twins are bad news, lets hope it's a nice big healthy baby!

    Foal
    Okay so I'm just going to throw this out here...I have ZERO experience with pregnant mares. I've been looking at other foaling threads and with the majority of them I can barely tell the horse is pregnant. This girl is so big. Just for educational purposes...is this normal? In other words, can she safely have this baby??? I would be nervous...

    Honestly, every mare is different. I worked with a pregnant mare last year (she foaled end of May, about 2 weeks past her due date) and she was MASSIVE. Not nearly as big as Tenakee here, but she was definitely very, very large. It really depends on the individual horse, just like it does with people. She's acting normally, she's not a maiden, so I wouldn't worry much, especially since we don't know the actual due date or anything.

    That being said, I've been following this topic from the beginning and I'm so, so excited to see what the baby looks like!

    This mare is also older and had several (many?) foals. In her pictures last spring, when she was weaning her last foal, she is bigger than alot of mares I know at foaling. Some mares look pg even when they aren't..

    Foal
    Normally when a foal holds on an extra long time they are actually smaller than average, or even dysmature. It may look like the foal is huge but a lot depends on how they carry the pregnancy so it may be normal size.

    We don't know that the baby is in there an extra long time .. we don't know when she was bred. I suppose since she brought her home in March (?) .. that we should have a baby before THIS March anyway .. LOL
