Nah, I think it's the same as people... in spite of height some are just... more well endowed than others.

Cmarie, it hadn't occurred to me that mares might come in sizes!Tica is between 13.3 and 14 hands when I measured so she's not a big girl herself. Maybe she won't get the huge udder some mares have? That's about all I find on Google.

Height doesn't have anything to do with it, some are just smaller than others.

Oh my gosh that sounds awful! I'm pregnant now and the thought of going even a little over my due date sounds horrendous. I wonder why they hold onto their foals that long? Could it be genetic in the mare? Or just when the foal is ready to be born?

They say it depends in the fetus, strange. I went a full 42 weeks with both my boys, hope you delivery at 40 weeks!

Is there a storm coming anytime soon? Or how about a day that you most certianly can't be home?
That's too funny, FG! Would be just your luck at this point, Nightside - but I hope everything falls into place perfectly for you and Tica :)

I hope so too! I am a very petite young woman though, so based on my body size if our little girl gets to big for me I might have to be induced a little early...

Haha I was 2 weeks over my due date. Had a big girl with a ton of hair so it was worth it. She is still big for her age, strong as an ox! Over baked babies are the best!

Still nothing from Tica. She was down when I went out at 9, just to get me all excited. Yep. She did it on purpose. I'm positive now. Can't get milk from her though, and she is back to being touchy about them.being handled.

No foal! Not even any changes to report, really.
