    I think people often forget what it was like the first time their horse was having a foal. I'm sure he meant well, but has been through this so many times that he's forgotten how stressful it can be the first time around. I'd feel the same way as you, especially since it wasn't your choice to have a foal! However, your mare is gorgeous and looks to be in fine fettle, so whatever he thinks, you're doing a wonderful job with her.

    I'm here doing this afternoon's check. Very pronounced movement in tail head, softer and jelly like in rectal area more so than before. No waxing yet. Also, I'm concerned that the milk vein has gone down. It was very round and stuck out now it it flatter. Udder has not changed. Is this normal?

    This is NOT going to be what you want to hear ... (don't shoot the messenger -- mainly 'cause I'll shoot back!)

    I like to see the nipples a little more "filled out" and elongated. Hers still look pretty "pinched". I also like to see the belly appear a little more "pointed" from the side view.

    The hoo haa???? What can you say about the hoo haa .. ? LOL

    Gahhhhh Nooo! LOL. Well, it is what it is I guess. I know she will have it when the time is right. Having not done this before everything seems like it's ready ya know, because I have nothing to compare it with. You can look at pictures all day but it doesn't compare to actually seeing and feeling it.

    And seriously....if that hoo haa gets any more "relaxed" that baby is going to fall right out!

    So, the movement in the tail head is due to the foal being up there and moving around. So what does that mean? Is that what causes the hormones to start releasing to start the process with the baby in position and "working" at the cervix?
