Josie is at 336 days today! I tested her milk tonight and it was roughly 200 calcium and a high pH. It was still amber colored and somewhat translucent. I think the color is a little more opaque today and it was sticky for the first time! Her bag has gone way down though. I'm not sure if the rest of the edema left or if she decided she was going to have a massive bag and foal early then changed her mind. I didn't stay tonight because she just flat doesn't look ready and I miss my nice, comfy bed, lol. 6 days from her "due date!" I sure hope she starts getting more ready! I'm going off her signs and her milk and may stay home the next couple days as well, if she doesn't look ready. I think I jumped the gun a bit before in my excitement!

She does have a rougher patch of skin near the back of her bag. Anything I can do for it? Like, is it ok to put some bag balm on it, maybe? Her bag is smaller, but the fluid was extremely easy to express tonight. Its been a bit hard to get anything out for the milk tests, until today.

She was like her old self today :) Had a LOT of fun during turnout and watched avidly as everyone else but her had to work! I laid her down to take a couple pics of the massive belly as well, lol. She was just a munching away on the grass laying down although wasn't very comfortable, so I let her get up when she wanted to. GAH, I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR HER TO FOAL! I'm just beside myself and spending as much time around the farm as I can so I don't miss it, lol. That includes not running down my phone's battery so its available for pics and video, which I must say, is HARD to stay off of when there isn't anything else to do. Hoping she'll start getting ready pretty quickly and get on the dang baby boat!

Please don't mind her funky stances in the pics! She stands however she's the most comfortable right now and the ground is SUPER uneven out there.

So here he is! Chestnut colt born on day 348 by Hydrive Cat out of Smart Queen Lena! Definitely didn't get what I ordered, but this colt is GORGEOUS and I'm in love already! He is absolutely curious too and came up to check my face out and eat my nose all by himself! Josie tested the same in her milk test yesterday and didn't show any other signs, so he was unexpected and not found til about 2pm! Love him to pieces! He doesn't have a name yet, I'm still waiting to get to know him a bit! Josie outdid herself this time! This colt is nice, nice, NICE! Deep heartgirth, nice head, nice shoulders, nice bum, nice everything, lol. I might be a bit biased though . Not sure if he'll be for sale or a keeper at this point. We will see!

Very nice! Chestnut is one of my favorite colours and he doesn't change my opinion one bit.

Josie gives me hope. Lilly is at 347 days today and shows no signs of being imminent, other than her belly has dropped. Maybe she and Josie are in cahoots and being sneaky.
