Well I'm going to stalk now too my mare is also driving me crazy, she's a maiden so I'm not too sure what she may decide to do! Hope you have a baby soon! She looks ready to me, but I'm an untrained eye as well so I can't help too much, I've just been trying to educate myself

Thanks nessa! I hope you see something soon too. I have no idea if my mare has foaled before so we may be in the same boat lol!

Haha well hope everything goes well! Mine has been fairly textbook but shows some signs where she looks like she could foal now and other signs where she'd be a little longer so she's so confusing! Your mare is very pretty too

Vent time! I must say, I am getting so tired of the barn owner and his comments and opinions. He finds it humorous that I check on Dalilah so much. He says it will come when it comes and nature will take its course so if it doesn't make it, this is a risk when dealing with breeding...blah blah blah. Really?!! First, it's not the foal that I am most concerned about, it's my mare. Second, I never asked for this! It is because of his negligence that I'm dealing with this in the first place, so how dare he say it's just part of it. I didn't ASK for any part of it.

I do appreciate knowledgeable input, as I have never dealt with a mare in foal. However, he tells me what he "thinks" to be truth, not what is fact. He has had a great deal of foals, but apparently he also doesn't consider minor details or differences between mares and foaling. He tells me so much stuff that after reading and asking on here is just ridiculous.

Anyways, that's my vent! And again, thank you guys fro being such a great source of support and information, I couldn't do this without y'all!

I'm sorry! Excuse me when I say screw him! It's not his mare! He has no say when you want to check on her! Camp out if you want to!

Wow, that's ridiculous that he would say that! The ignorance of some people.

That's what I say. I don't give a crap what he thinks! I'm worried for the safety of my mare and if something should go wrong I have a better chance of catching it if I check on her.

Very true, I would feel the same. Especially if it were not my choice of having my mare bred.

Just did my midnight check. I didn't notice anything different other than she did not want me to touch anywhere near her udder. Period. When I tried to reach under and have a feel she swayed towards me to bump me. I corrected her but decided not to push the issue. I could see it and tell it was still as big and no wax, etc so no real need to feel it. I know it must be sensitive. I'll check again at 6 am and see if we have a foal!
