Today she finally has a full handful of bag to her! She has been really cranky and and fidgety, and doesn't like to be bothered as much, though she still loves being brushed and eating everything in sight. No imminent signs, that brat. She must know I won't let her in the from yard once she foals, and doesn't want to give it up!

It is stinking hot today! That trough usually lasts 2-3 days but it was half gone (or half full) from this morning when I topped it off!

She is still eating up a storm. Bag is the same size as yesterday, no change in lady parts color, and she was actually less cranky than she has been the past few days.

Makes me wonder if I should spend all day walking her like pregnant ladies do, haha!

Where is she going to be foaling at?

I've got a smaller paddock for her when she seems more imminent so she won't have to worry about nosey mares bothering her.

Of course, this is assuming all goes according to plan, and mares hate to follow a plan, haha.

I actually got a drop of milk out of her today! Maybe half a drop. Not much but it seemed to be pale yellow in color. Lady parts are still pink, and she is clearly still eating. I even got some movement from baby today. Come on out, baby!

If she is getting close enough id stick her in the paddock right now and just have horses next to and around her if you are worried about privacy. I know with my mare the vet was off a few weeks with the due date and I came out to the stable one day and the foal was just there. My mare wouldnt let her suck because the other horses were bothering her and she was trying to protect the foal.

I put her in the paddock on Tuesday because I wasn't going to be home all day. She wasn't very happy about that, judging by the churned up dirt, it looked like she was pacing for a while. She can see the other horses and touch noses, and there is a goat and some chickens that have a pen right next to it. So I'm just trying to keep her stress to a minimum, but he goes in the paddock at night and the other mares hover right outside it with her, and she is fine.

Got a few drops of milk from her now, it is foggy white with a slight yellow and salty. While I was out there I thought I'd take another picture of the belly. Forgive the ribs, they seem to come and go as baby shifts around in there.

Awww, bless her pregnant little self! What a good girl! Bet you're glad that baby didn't come Tuesday - had my fingers and toes crossed on that one. Now, she's good to go :)

Definitely glad she didn't have it Tuesday! But Iwould welcome a foal anytime now. She's been a doll with all the prodding and poking and pictures. She actually used to spook at the sound of a camera but now I can take pictures of lady parts and she doesn't bat an eye. I musttake too many pictures, haha.
