Megs Baby Belly!

Ok, my turn to post pics of expectant mother. Her due date is Sunday/Monday. When do you think she'll foal?









She is dirty between her teets, but if I try to clean, she kicks out, she's very tender and does'nt like me messing. :(
Is it normal to have one larger than the other?

She is big but her teats arent very full. Keep checking them for wax and checking her bum right on each side of her tail. The day prior to her foaling you will find a very noticeable change in her muscle tone. It will go from normally being somewhat firm to her bum being VERY soft and "squishy".

She might also become irritable.

Make sure to post photos of the baby when he/she is born!

Hi,
Her bum is already soft and squishy. Like jelly when you touch it, even more so today.
My vet seems to think her teets wont fill much more than that, until baby is approx three weeks old, then she will produce a lot more milk and her bag will become a lot bigger. I haven't seen him for the past few days, but is it usual to have one teet bigger than the other?

Her teets being uneven isnt a concern. That will constantly fluctuate. They should fill out and be completely full hours before she foals. Of course no 2 horse is the same but she will for sure fill our a lot more than where she is sitting right now.

I bred horses and had brood mares for years.

What are you wanting to do with the little bugger?

I'm going to say tomorrow night too. Don't worry about the teets. I've also had some wax over some not so if she doesn't dont worry. Keep the camera rolling
