24 Hours and Counting!!!!!
 
I checked Ms. Crazy Lady today (who is now OVER DUE!) and noticed a large amount of discharge. YES! Thats what I have been waiting on! Crazy Lady is a secret keeper...she refuses to tell the tale-tale signs of labor...no bag development (she develops a bag 1 hour after foaling for some reason), no disposition changes, no sign of tension...NOTHING...well except 24 hours or less before foaling there is this odd white discharge EVERY TIME...not sure why...the vet says its just her...hince the name Ms. Crazy Lady...all of it is just how she does things.

So we start the count! Now Crazy Lady is 23 this year, and this will be her last foal so I need everyone to pray with me for a smooth delivery for both mare and foal. She has produced 3 App top 5's (she AQHA) many ROM winners and a few Superiors as well, and although she looks 10 years old, she deserves her retirement. Good thoughts and warm wishes as we count down to the big moment! Will post pictures as soon as he/she (its a boy I'm sure) is here!

Thank you. I just checked her again and she seems fairly uncomfortable, but she did decide to eat her grain, so we just watch and see.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful thoughts. After about 10 last night there really were no more changes so we went ahead and had the vet come out just to make sure the foal wasnt stuck or in trouble. He said everything seems to be just fine, but it does appear that Crazy Lady had 1 last momma trick up her sleeve. She has decided on her last foal to trick everyone! It has hit the 24 hour mark from when we noticed the discharge and no still no Foal. Silly mare...develop a pattern and then change it at the last minute!

So we continue hourly checks (even though she seems fairly sick of them) and hope to catch her giving birth.
