This mare needs to pop already! I have been stalking this thread for so long now!!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Just don't check her for the next few nights, she will have a baby one of these mornings...I am seriously tired of waiting for her to foal, can only imagine how you feel.

I know it! Shuffling out there a night used to be exciting, now it feels like a chore. She doesn't even give me false hope!

And as long as you aren't big as a house while pregnant, I'd still ride. Baby Myst grow slow to bake for two years!

and I also recently read that baby elephants are 260 lbs average at birth. I give kudos to elephant cows to be able to do that haha

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

I got to experience the pregnant for 2 years thing... my kids were 14 months apart. I had storybook pregnancies, though, so I loved every minute of it! :)

I'll tell you, the most unfair pregnancy comparison I can think of is the MI Black Bear! The sow's in a state of sleep, cozy in her den, and she hardly realises she's in labor. Her (usually two) cubs only weigh 9 0z. At birth! Then they crawl up and suckle as needed while she remains in her state of sleep. Now granted, my two boys were only 7lbs 6 0z, and 7lbs 1 0z, but still..... :)

Yep, it's true! Haha Probably predestined that way so labor/birth doesn't wake her and expend too much energy - in N MI, they have their cubs in Jan - Feb, so during that time the cubs can nurse and sleep. Spring doesn't arrive until around May here, (no matter what the calender says), and then she'll emerge with her (now strong) young.... :)

well that is actually pretty darn cool. That way her and her babies are safe during their period of vulnerability

They sleep through their labor and the fussy crying phase? Bear mamas sound pretty darn lucky to me!
