I am new here and glad I found this forum. I rescued a mini from slaughter in October. She is basically feral and you cannot get close to her or touch her without a huge ordeal. I had a pregnancy test done via bloodwork when she was in quarantine (blood drawn on October 18). The vet confirmed that she is pregnant and could be somewhere between 100 and 150 days based on results. She said her best guess was closer to the 100 day mark. Well, that was 143 days ago...
So, she could be anywhere from 243-293 days. She is enormous and has been holding her tail up for several weeks and bag started to develop about 6 weeks ago. Any advice on what to do during labor/delivery with a mare that will not allow anyone to come near her or touch her? I am nervous that she is going to need help and we won't be able to do so... She does come in every night when she is ready and we watch carefully and close the stall door once she is in.
Note: we work with her everyday to get her used to being with people and build trust. She has made very little progress in the last 5 months.
