Miniature close to foaling

I am new to this site and I was hoping someone could tell me how close my mini was to foaling. I got her on April 12, 2013 and a few months after that notice she may be in foal. I called the previous owner and was told they did not breed her and she was just fat. My Vet confirm she was in foal. I have no idea when she got breed but it happen before April 12 the date I got her. The first picture is of her the day after I got her and the second picture was took on the 13th of Feb. 2014. This is my first mare. I always owned geldings.

What do her udders, butt muscles, etc look like? What was your vet's guess? Obviously she's due, at lasted, in March- which means she has less than a month left,possibly less. Now is the time to watch for subtle changes. I hope you have your foal kit, vet's number on hand (minis are notorious for foaling complications and the foal and mare will need checked anyways when it is born), and a shelter ready for her to foal in if she wants to. If she isn't separate from the other horses yet, separate her now.

She's a very pretty girl. I'd love to see the foal when it comes!

My vet was last out in Oct. 2013 and he couldn't give me a date. Everything is ready and I keep her separated every night or anytime I can't keep a eye on her.

She may be close to foaling but she still loves to play with her buddy...

The white/buckskin horse is my other gelding. He is a spotted saddle horse and the sorrow horse is a quarter/haflinger.

Today Jazz is doing a lot of head shaking. The foal is making her uncomfortable.

Is this mare in foal or not. I video tape her today and I would love for someone else to let me know what they think. She is dirty due to all the snow that melted with the warmer temperatures. I believe she could be due any day now if I am right.
