Here are recent pics. I'm pretty sure I jumped the gun on her due date. But not having any idea I would rather be safe. She has a pretty good bag no milk leaking yet Resized_20170216_165858(1).jpeg Resized_20170216_165846(1).jpeg

In my experience, I've not had maidens follow a pattern. Each mare is different there's no set textbook answer when it comes to bagging, I've had maidens bag up and drip milk early and I've had experienced broodmares foal with no bag or any outward sign of imminent foaling at all. It would be nice if we always had absolute steps we could rely on, but the best we can do is closely monitor each mare so we can keep a journal of what is normal for her...of course then sooner or later she'll do something completely opposite LOL.

Is her udder soft and squishy and getting larger or is her udder firm feeling and warm?

She looks great and glad you are seeing some sunshine :)

 

I think its a good thing that not all mares express fluid before foaling. Those first few feeds that a foal gets from mum has all the "Good stuff" that a foal needs when first born. 

 

They (Preg mares) sure like to keep their owners guessing :)

Judging solely on this one photo, I would say the mare is a fair ways off yet.  The bag needs to fill considerably on both side, and closer to when she's ready, the nipples will be pointing more outwards and will be more "spread out" in appearance. You can also lift the tail and kneel down behind to get pics from the rear. As she gets closer, you'll see the bag growing in size, getting fuller, firmer and hanging lower.

Hi I agree with Monas reply. Tammy, instead of trying to take a photo from underneath your mare, can you pull her tail to the side and take one from behind?

Always better to be safe yes :yes   I'm not seeing any bag, and no noticeable difference in her vulva. How far along do you think she could be? I know you said you got her and she was vet checked in Oct so that's 5-6 months along..what kind of preg, test did the Vet use?
