I`m soooooooo excited about my mares foaling, that I couldn`t wait any longer to share it here. :)
I have experienced broodmare Smaile (4 foals) but still, I am really nervous about this foaling because this will be my first foal.! :oops:
Smaile was bred for 6 days, so I`m not really sure how many days she is in foal, but it is between - 298-305 days. Her tummy is huuuuuge, though udder is filling up really slowly - almost nothing there. Though, when I squeeze tits something comes out (not milk, something yellowish). Here are pictures with her, that was taken couple weeks ago, I`ll get new ones tomorrow. :)

Days in foal is calculated from the last cover date. So use the date she was last covered by the stallion to calculate days in foal ;)

Thank you all.! :))
Daddy is Chevers, he is young stallion, only 3 years old, when Smaile was bred to him. We are waiting for 2 more foals in our stable from him - one is coming out any day. :-)
Here is Chevers pedegree - Horse card

I don`t have any good pictures with him - he looks more fabulous in real life. And he has gained a lots of muscle and weight since last summer. :) :D

Oh, if so, then Smaile is at 299 day in foal. 21 day to go until "safe foaling zone" :))
