    My mare ate all of her food 2 hrs before foaling, so I don't let that be a sign. Come on Tenakee!

    One of my mares acted completely normal,including her usual appetite,right up to the point when she suddenly laid down in the middle of eating and started pushing;also when I worked at the ranch it was not unusual to have mares act completely normal up to the start of labor,so they won't necessarily act "off". From what you describe though,it sounds like her body is certainly ready!

    FALL OUT? Heck, this baby is going to half pass it's way out and go straight into a piaffe. You'll be lucky if it's riderless! LOL!
    It sure does sound like she's ready, though. If it were me, I'd be camping out. Mares don't necessarily change their behavior just prior to foaling. My mares ate right up till the time they were ready to start pushing. None of them really did any butt pressing, per se, but they did swish their tails a little more often as the contractions got stronger, and they would constantly shift from one hind foot to the other with an occasional belly kick. If you see Tenakee doing that, you can be sure she's not irritated by a fly. Also, her milk should be white by this time. You can also check to see if she's lost her mucous plug, which may be stuck to her tail hair, or will be blobbed on the ground. This is why it's really important to keep her inside now as much as possible so you can look for this telltale sign.
    Good luck!! I hope everything with this foaling goes flawlessly, and you have a beautiful, curly filly by morning!

    Checked the milk, it is clear. In the meantime I will share some of the things that I can't wait to do with Tenakee after she foals.

    1) put a normal sized saddle on her
    2) adjust her harness to fit her
    3) this 1 is a big 1 no pun intended, but be able to fit her through normal size door!

    I'm posting this is I am observing her and she just bit at her side. The baby has been moving around a lot even kicked me before. She's been real lovey recently, and is now taking a break from munching on me to stand in the arena.

    Wow this baby is taking forever. So excited to see it though.

    Well I have a picture of the previous endeavors. I'm not going to camp out just yet, but I will check on her every few hours. I will probably take night shift, and will sleep during the day and have someone else check on her if she is suspicious or there are feet or a whole baby I will be notified. It is quite a bit warmer out, so I am not as worried about immediately getting at the foal. My father seems convinced she is not going to foal yet, but I think I must remind him that she is not a dairy cow and will not bag up much more if any more at all. She bit at her sides quite a few more times while I was out by her. For those who are compelled to camp out by their computers, anyone want to start making guesses as to when she is going to foal? Boy or Girl? Anything to keep me awake, as it is hardly 8 o'clock and I am already sleepy. :)

    It's going to be a filly, I think.

    I hope so! We all know girls keep everyone waiting, and this one is taking her dear old time.

    I'm thinking little colt. But I've been wrong in the past.
