    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Haha 😂 that’s exactly what I’m going for, that she’s in foal lol. Sounds like we’re kinda “twins”, we got black mares due soon but not really sure if they’re preggo, but we’re hoping lol, kinda nice to have someone else going through the same thing!

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Another little update here, I didn’t milk her today but when I tried to touch her belly and feel her udder, she tried to bite me. I feel like that could be cause mares when they get closer can get cantankerous around that area cause baby is bothering them? And just to clarify, I’m fine either...

    You think hers is bigger than average? Are you saying you think she’s pregnant? Lol 😂

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    I checked my other mare who is definitely not pregnant, and she didn't even have a bag to speak of, and couldn't get anything out of her teats. This other mare who isn't pregnant only had one baby before so she had some experience, aghhh this is so frustrating! Should I be worried about Indi or...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Okay so I have news!! I was able to get some fluid out of Indi’s teats today, it was clear at first and then foggy whitish. Her teats are also way bigger, and after I “milked” her the first time today, I just basically touched her teat and felt some dripping! And it also felt bigger after I...

    Okay, thanks for that! I’ll get ahold of some vets, that price doesn’t sound too bad. My great uncle has a camera I might be able to borrow as well. Ohhh yeah I’ll do the once a week thing, and they are due for worming too.

    Ohhh gotcha, thanks for explaining that! Yeah I get that for sure, I’m going to look around my area for some vets for the next few days lol, I just hope it won’t cost an arm and a leg as I’m on a tight budget here lol

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Interesting, I was sure I saw something right near the end there. Okay, I'll check it out :) Would you say you think she looks pregnant? How far along do you think she'd be? I'm getting crazy lol I need to know! I hope to see if I can get a test of some sort done, most equine vets do farm calls...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Here’s today’s update: I couldn’t get any udder photos as she was more jittery and we had to be in a stall as it’s currently raining. But I got the behind pic and the full stomach pic, and I also got a video. I thought I saw some kicks but I thought I’d post it here to see if it’s my imagination...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Interesting! I’m going to see if I can get some footage like that. Also, I was trying to google a foal’s position in utero so I could figure out the best place to feel for kicks…but Google didn’t show anything except when the foal is moving into birth position. So does anyone have either 1. An...

    Hmmm okay, the only issue is that I have no idea where to get wee foal tests in Canada lol, Amazon used to have them but not anymore.

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    I don’t think it’s gas lol, but I could be wrong as I’ve never really done this before. I looked up wee foal but it’s so expensive for just one and personally I’d rather spend that kind of money on a vet who knows what they’re doing, then I could get a more accurate result. How much on average...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Here is today’s update on Indi: I felt something similar to her breathing, where I think the foal shifted a body part closer to her skin but it wasn’t a kick. More like a slow shift then moved back. Then I walked her around for probably a minute and felt some quicker shifting back and forth...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Hmmm thats interesting! I wonder what the “kicking” is then? Also since the minis can’t really have internal ultrasounds, what is the best way for a vet to pronounce them pregnant or not pregnant, or are there any reliable at home tests I can do that aren’t expensive? Also the reason I’m...

    Expert opinions please…not sure if she’s in foal

    Yes exactly, I was thinking about how I’m going to get her used to being in a stall. I don’t even have doors on the stalls so I will have to build one lol. And I’ll also have to figure out how to make it mostly draft free. Ohhh I see, sounds good! I think I have an HD tv but I’ll have to double...
