    Dont worry too much, she's actually not late, maer foal in response to foal readiness instead of numbers on the calender. And the old saying she's late its a stud colt is actually a wives tale! :) The only thing that holds true is that foalings that occur between January thru May usually go longer 340 or more than foalings that happen in the warmer months June - August. It actually has to do with the length of sunlight in a day just like heat cycles. My mares are bred for earlier babies and they usually go to about day 350 and one to 360 and I've had all fillies! :) Good luck with your baby! Both of mine are at day 347 today, starting to get frustarated cause Im so close but yet so far away:) lol

    ^^^Oh I know she usual goes between 350 and 360, she had always had colts with this stud. At least your mares are all bagged up and have transitioned already, Toppa hasn't yet, she's still as wide as she is tall.

    SD so did the baby deliver with that tidal wave that you had?? Lol..

    She was an effective plug, once she came out, there was a big gush of fluid that went all over the place. Quote from the midwife, "now I need a shower" -she was looking at her clothes and arms because she was covered LOL! Yeah, that last child of mine was a chunk too. 9 lbs 15 oz, only 19" long at two weeks and one day before her due date. She wasn't my biggest baby either, but I had always measured right on for the previous pregnancies.

    Your daughter was short and round like Toppa

    Still no foal not that I was expecting one yet, no real changes.

    Still no foal only changes is she is all posty legged now, and the foal has transitioned a bit, so it won't be long now I hope.

    Any updates? She should be done baking that baby by now
        03-21-2012, 12:32 PM
    Still baking but today my gelding is "standing guard" on her so maybe soon, he attends all the foals being born, he keeps the dogs and coyotes away.

    Any updates?

    Nothing yet her udders are full with no dimpling, not quite as round as tall any more but still out on the sides, she has alot of ventral edema, and is being quite the bi@#$ at the moment. Foal movement has slowed down. Hoping she will go this week.
