Starting Boo's Countdown To Foaling

Boo was covered April 16, 18, 20, 2022. Checked in foal May 6, 2022. So day 340 is March 26, 2023 and she's now 296 days in foal. In all the years I've had her, she's gone 340 days exactly and laid down and presented us with a lovely, healthy foal.

She's so big and has such a HUGE amount of room to carry her foal that she never really shows or looks pregnant until she starts getting pretty close to foaling. Tonight I noticed when I went out to feed and blanket that she's actually getting round in her belly and starting to show. At least, she is to ME. I think if you didn't know her, you probably wouldn't notice. I did notice that when I went to do up her belly band on her blanket that the straps don't wrap around as far as they usually do. I gave her belly a pat and told her, "Boo, you're amazing. You're about to foal out here, in a MINUTE and you're just barely starting to show!". She just kind of looked at me like, "Yeah and it's all your fault!". And went right back to hoovering up her dinner. Silly mare!

Track record of when she foaled in the past is hard to ignore....

Weather conditions though can play a bit of havoc in that though too....
Weather change and front coming through, the stronger the more apt she is to deliver during storm peak as you know...

Mother Nature and Boo seem to already have this understanding....

Since shes foaled so consistent on day 340....it will be day 340 of the day she caught, not introduced.....

Baby alert.... we're now all waiting, some getting impatient. :unsure:

She'll go when she's ready and not a moment before...
Having had before she knows when she shall pick the time and time of day and weather conditions to drop in in peace.
I'll guess she is days out...don't care what gender as long as all the parts are in proper place and healthy...all babies are beautiful as they enter the world and first days of being here.
