He looks great, how old is he? He doesn't look bothered by it at all.

He is about 16 months. He has been such a dream to do everything with. I was expecting such a nightmare since he was born on a 360 parcel ranch and never handled. Nothing seems to phase him much.

I think we have a lot in common! We got Sage and her 5 month old filly (Cactus) and Lady in foal with Cowboy April of this year. They ran on a 300 acre horse ranch with 20-30 other mares and 1 stud and had NEVER been touched by a human hand.

Cactus will be a year old next month we are going slow, but just started walking her and puting the lead line around her belly like the girth. We will put the pad on her in a few months.

Here are last night's pictures... in some she still does not look pregnant, in others, there is a definite bell shape to her belly. I still feel she is, but "he" is hiding udder her ribs, but that's just me. Had some vulva changes last night, extended and was leaking, but then shrunk back up, lol. We will see what Friday brings.

You know now that you have the sonogram appt scheduled she isn't going to do anything until after that. She's gotta spend your money! Just any other kid!

I know... sneaky witch! If the vet feels she is pregnant, and far enough along, I may go ahead and have her induced. That way she is in a monitored environment and the foal can get everything it needs when born. I don't have much concern about something going wrong with the pregnancy, but with the foal.

Can you induce? I have never heard of doing it, but then again I haven't been around many pregnant mares!

I'm not going to lie, if you induce Vana, and Sage is still pregnant I'm going to say you cheated! 😂😂

I have heard you can, but like a human it can be harder on the mare. And I don't want to have to put her through that if I can help it. Since this has gone on so long now, I just want to make sure this foal is not too big. You call it cheating... I call it my competitive edge!!!
