I think I am going to get a few hours of sleep before I go peek at her again.
Pregnant mare's sure are tricky.
My mare bagged up months before her due date. Had clear milk for weeks.
Then I got a call from my barn owner telling me that my mare had white milk dripping and she told me that she would probably foal the same day. But no.
She sure took her time, she had white milk for two weeks before dropping.
And I missed the birth, even though I went up to check the camera to her stall every 15-20 minutes for those two weeks.
08.30 PM - she was eating.
08.45 PM - she was done foaling.
