    Oh My!! I took that photo this evening! Should I run down and check on her again??? I've tried to milk her, but she is so sensitive and just won't stand for it. I have finally gotten her to the point where she will let me touch her udder. Before she was in foal I could clean it and do whatever, but not so much now!

    Here is a good site that shows udder development and what they look like at different stages.
    Foaling
    I don't know if your mare will foal tonight or next week, she looks close to me.

    No, but I just scurried around the house in a frenzy making sure I didn't forget anything in my foaling kit! My husband was laughing when I was getting annoyed with the flickering flashlight and then climbing on the chair to search the top of the fridge for extras

    LOL I'll know who it is if I see a strange person sneaking around the barn!

    Should I wrap her tail or leave it? She has free access to be in either the barn or the barn lot, so not sure how long it would stay on if it is wrapped. I used to wrap my husband's gelding's beautiful tail just to keep it from being tattered so I do a pretty fair job at it. I've heard/seen conflicting opinions on whether it matters or not.

    I haven't wrapped sunshines, but we never have. I braid it loose. It falls out and I redo it. I bought the stuff to wrap it I just haven't done it. I just went out to her stall and she is not doing a thing. :( I'm about to give up! Ha I bought a big light that charges. It has low glow blue and red. I tell my husband if he sees red come running! I got tired of flash lights going out on me during night checks.

    I want to go and check on her, but the driveway up to the barn is gravel and makes so much noise! I don't wan to wake the owner or his family that also lives right there. It's not far, I can walk, but heck to the no for walking in the dark! Heaven only knows what kind of monstrous spiders and beetle type bugs may be lurking around! I'm going to go first thing in the morning when my kids leave for school, it's still dark out, but a reasonable time.

    Ya we get them here too! I dare them to try and come in after one of the foals down there(well there's just one so far)....with all those grumpy moody mares it wouldn't last long!

    I'll get some more pics tomorrow. I'm truly hoping she gives some definite "imminent" signs, and in that case I'm setting up camp. But, I'm not going to get my hopes up either!
