They have one of those in the AM too? Zavrina is going to be a kind mare and foal at 3PM, in the clean pasture under a bright warm sun! (Its nice this time of year in denial, you should visit)

You'll be one of the first to know!

330 Days

80* last week and 30* with snow today. I hope she holds out for a day or two yet, its suppose to go back into the 50's for next week at least.


Her body is now showing every possible sign of being ready to foal and for the first time since the beginning of March, Zavrina has acted comfortable. No more heavy breathing, butt rubbing, side biting, holding her back foot up, pawing etc.. over the past two days.


And a belly shot still warm & dry in the stall this morning before turning her loose in a blizzard.

Snow? Oh how I don't envy you. Its pouring down rain here though.

Looks like she'll go in about 2 days.

Thus far she has been fairly early with her signs but text book. She has been waxing, just a little, like this since the 26th Getting excited to meet baby.

Yes, the snow is a nice touch isn't it? Considering the HOT weather we had a few days ago. The poor horses do not know what to do. QUICK shed out as fast as you can, wait no! Grab any loose hair you can find and glue it back on!

That's how it is here too not 80 but in the upper 60s, then still freezing at night. Poor horses don't know what to do.

When can I start asking "Are we there yeeeeeeet"

I fail at guessing. Horrible. I was so sure she'd go early too. On the plus side the scare around 315 days is just a memory, no worries, it'll clearly be a properly baked baby. But I would like to sleep maybe just a few solid nights before I start to watch Jinx who is due May 4th.

For being such an uncomfortable grump earlier she sure has been content the past eight or so days. Seriously, I think she's accepted that we're having this baby and has moved on.

Finally closing in on her "due date" here she is at 338 days.








She'll let me wash again. And even try to get some milk to test! But I am un-able to get any milk from her? What sprayed onto her legs today (you can see it in one of the pictures) looks white.

Whoa, talk about some major veins! She sure looks like she's ready to pop.

Well, aparently when your lugging around this giant sack of potatoes in your belly and 14 gallons of milk then walking from your round bale up to the barn because similar to a body builder lifting weights! You should have heard her heavy breathing
