    I haven't took it. Should I be keeping check of it.

    It can help tell when she is close to foaling.

    Take it twice a day and figure out what her norm is. Make note of any discrepancies.

    My little girl is spending her morning up and down rolling.

    I would take her temp and have the vet on hold and banamine on hand (if that's safe for her at this point, I wouldn't know). It could be a mild colic due to her foaling (stress). She could just be foaling. It's hard to tell unless you're there in person. Does she seem colicky otherwise?? Does it look like she's trying to find a nest on the ground? Rolling isn't necessarily good if that seems to be her focus, I haven't seen a mare roll as part of foaling, except for a roll here and there to try to get comfortable.

    She is eating, drinking and acting okay other than being moody. She had this attitude for a couple of weeks but it seem to be getting worse. (Chasing anyone or anything out of her corral.)

    Is she still rolling a lot? Like all out thrashing roll or just half hearted side roll.

    If she is foaling than do not give banamine , just monitor her and keep an eye on her eating and drinking.
    Perhaps just leave her alone for a while.
    If you have been looking at her teats. Does she have milk, or wax and is she soft near the croup of her tail.?

    I think she was just making herself comfortable. She would get down and roll half way and get up then little while later repeat. Going out in a minute to get a temperature.
