Diane, I did notice and she's starting to make me wonder if she's telling me to change my breeding program.lol

On another note, I guess I always thought mares didn't eat well immediately prior to foaling. Seems like all of mine I've foaled out here at home didn't eat their dinner completely just before foaling. If that's true, Ravey isn't foaling tonight as she's been eating that hay like it's the last left on earth! She's really chowed down tonight. Thoughts? Your experiences, ladies?

I used to think that true, also. Then I found 2 of my mares eating their full breakfasts, and as I was getting ready to let them out of their stalls (since they had eaten so well) one laid down, pushed out a foal, stood up and kept eating! Needless to say, they BOTH stayed in that day!

So, you just NEVER know!

You are SO not stupid Renee. It was funny! Sometimes technology gets the better of all of us.

Thanks so much for watching Ravey.

Happy Birthday Parmela!
Yes, I learned back in 1973 (with a big horse) that mares can eat while in the first stages of labor. Has happened with the minis too.
