My daughter went and checked Vana out before school and said she is extended and leaking (but still not holding my breath). I will be going out tonight since the farrier is coming out, so I will get updated pictures.
Farrier visit went great. All 5 got trimmed (we don't shoe them), even baby boy. He needed some ground manners on standing still while his foot was held up, but it only took about half an hour for his first trim. Here are some of tonight's pictures of Vana. I think part of why she is not "huge" is that she is 15.3 hands, so she has a lot of room in there, and last years colt is still not big yet. He will be broke as a 3 year old most likely.
When I bought my mare I was told she was ready to drop!! That was Feb. The 10th. She just had hers on the 9th! My mare never really looks preggo until about 3 days before she had the baby she blew up!! Good Luck to you!!
Do you have any pix of your mare right before foaling?
No, unfortunately. And since she was a "pasture" broodmare, and the stallion was put in, I can only guess and breed date and how long her "typical" gestation might be. That is why I have kind of given up guessing, and just sit back and wait now. As long as my vet says she is good, I will try not to worry much. She has had 11 babies, so she knows what she is doing. I would love to be able to watch, but I just want a good, healthy baby on the ground. Plus, she is miserable since the temps have been in the high 90s to low 100s.
