Mare look dropped?
I'm wondering if she's dropped she is due September 17th.
Her vaulva is slightly open and this will be her fourth foal. Her bags are full and her udders are huge!
Also is she in decent weight in your opinion?

She looks pretty droopy to me, and personally I'd like to see a little more chub on her but it could just be the angle/lighting making her hips look skinny...then again I do prefer a horse on the fatter side. ;)

Her hips are round if looking from behind. My vet said he thinks she just built that way but idk. I'd still like her to put more weight on here's another pic

But she looks dropped to you too? She's been big for a couple months so it's hard for me to really tell.
I still want more weight on her. Her tailbone does stick up. But she's got fat over her ribs so I'm pretty confused about her weight/ condition. I've had many people tell me different things about her weight because of that tailbone sticking out.

Ha! You think she looks angular now ... be prepared to pour the feed to her after baby gets here.

She's hanging pretty low
