What did your mare do?

I understand, and I know everyone else does as well, that not every mare is the same.

Because I want to further drive my self to insanity while looking for signs that my pregnant mare is nearing bith. I wanted to start this thread, so other people can share what their mare did when she was getting closer. This could be anywhere from her actions, mood, or behaviour.

The mare I had before the one pregnant now was a maiden. She followed the text book. Her belly dropped, udder developed, wax formed, then colosterm leaked. Next day, boom. Foal.

Been trying to look for the same things in my mare now. Though she ain't working with me. Just recently she started getting up and down a lot at night. (I have a video camra in the stable so I've been watching her.) Constantly jerks her head around, like something startled her. Last night was the first time I seen the foal kick. Now it won't stop. At first the kick was closer to the udders. Though last time it threw a little fit it was farther down, near the middle or front of her stomach. Also up until now, I could mess with her stomach all I wanted. Now, she walks away from me. Which is VERY unusual for that mare. Normally follows me around like a dog. Only sad thing in this, I have no clue when she was bred due to the circumstances of being rescued and then adopted. I've had the vet out, but she couldn't see or feel it either times. So I took another method and did a pee test. She is obviously pregnant, no doubt about that. The test confirmed it with a very strong positive.

So, share away and drive me into further insanity. :)

We weren't expecting my mare to drop Sassy for a few more weeks. I remember going out to check on Dream, noticed a tiny drop of red fluid at the base of her vulva (or what ever you wanna call it..LADY PART). I dismissed it as nothing, went inside and invited my friend Jessica over to spend the night. Next morning, BOOM. Little sorrel filly sleeping behind the barn! I hardly ever saw Dream sleep during the day, it would take her a good few minutes to get up after laying down. We didn't really know what to look for during the pregnancy, but you bet we had one epic kit for AFTER the foal was born!:P

Foal
Some mares like to keep you guessing. She's probably waiting for when you aren't watching. ;)

In my case first time around the two maiden mares only bagged up a little before they foaled, then fully made milk. Bonnie bagged up before she foaled her first two fillies for us but didn't hardly bag up at all for her filly she had this year. So every mare and pregnancy is different.
