Shadow is getting closer?

Recommended Posts

Thanks Ryan. Anything new I will let y'all know. I've only had three foals with my six mares, so I'm still a rookie. Learning everyday, especially from this forum.

She is looking good and progressing well. There is a definite change in her udder photo compared to the last one. You can see her nipples starting to separate and eventually they will point down.

 

Now saying this , my comments relate to the "Textbook " Mare and there is not a lot of mares that like to read this book before foaling. She may not completely fill that udder until she foals so you really just need to keep a close eye on her, especially at this stage of her pregnancy. it may only take 1-2 good rolls to line that baby up.

 

Id be watching her like a hawk at this stage. Get that foaling kit ready. :)

 

Do you bring her in at night or will she be foaling outdoors ?

I've been trying to fing the textbook that the mares read, but they're sold out. Lol. She rolled in the mud this morning besides that she hasn't changed any routines or behavior. We do let her hangout with our other minis, but at night she has our second barn and about 1/2 acre to roam about. At this time there no stalls in there, she can come and go as she pleases. I will update any new information as she gets closer. Thanks Ryan....

A good sign could be something as simple as your noticing her standing in a different position in the barn. They sure like to keep you guessing :)

 

And Im sure when mares see you leave , they burst out laughing !!

Sounds like she has a nice place where she feels safe and comfortable. I love for them to be able to move around and have their foal in or out their choice.

This is just for fun. Can you see the horse in her belly? Once you see it OMG. Problem is, it's facing the wrong way. Lol

She's getting closer! Such a pretty little mare - silver black is my favorite color (our first foal this year is a silver bay).

 

I, too, wish you good luck on the foaling.

Thanks Paula. We are very excited and nervous. She is the only one pregnant this year. Last year we had two colts.
