Pregnant mare attitudes

I was just wondering what kind of attitudes your mares have had at 6 months pregnant. May mare is 6.5 months in term and my last 2 rides she has had more energy than she has in months. She's no dead head on a regular day, but in the arena she just does her thing. Add to that, I have to excersize her every couple days as she is stocking up in the pasture from the extra weight, so she isnt going unworked. I got her as a 2 year old and trained her myself so I know her moods, she has been feeling great lately, no special feed at this point as her weight is great, a bit jumpy, high alert and a motor on her.

What are your pregnant mares like?

When my mare was pregnant she was so bitchy with all the other horses LOL she didn't want them near her, breathing near her or just being near her! All the others learnt just to stay away.......that is the only time I have seen her like this, I've had her for 7yrs., bred her and now have her son who is 3 1/2, after she had him she was back to her normal good girl self....

Too funny! That's my mare on a regular day -she's the boss lol. She has her circle of trust though, and they may stand beside her. So far the only change in her that I have noticed has been a boost of energy. For the first couple months she stopped to pee a lot, which I definitely noticed because she rarely would go under saddle -that is over and done with though.

This is my first experience with a pregnant mare so it is all so interesting. My best riding buddy bred her mare as well to the same stud which makes it fun.

Don't you know pictures are REQUIRED in a thread like this. We have a little paint pony who is the same way. When she's pregnant she'll boss anyone around! She stands aroudn 13 hands but you'd think she was the largest draft around. Lol.

Okay!

So here is couple of Sable in peak physical condition this summer, she is a solid built 15.2 hh mare: That's my hubby riding her, his second show ever (proud mama here that her horse is now broke and he can ride her lol)




Here is the Stud: Name This Tune (he is 14.3 hh): I am hoping for about 15hh, I do know he is small for his bloodline so we'll see, but I am pretty excited about the cross!




Here is Sable 6 months in term and wearing her winter whoolies!:

Ohhhh you are going to have so much fun! We set up a web cam down in the run in, so we could watch her and all my friends would check in daily to see how she was coming along and hopefully we could see her giving birth. I never saw her giving birth, it was recording though and I went through the hours of it, we could hear her water break, her pushing and about 10 mins. Later two little ears popped into view!!! Her baby now is coming up 4 and it's been a great experience raising the little one!
I took a pic of her from behind when it was like a week before her due date LOL she was huge!!!!
Keep us all posted...
