    Help guesstimating foaling

    Thank you everyone! This little guy's legs have really improved! My vet said to keep him in his stall but after reading a lot and hearing others advice I let him out for a couple hours a couple times a day in a small pasture. His legs are still a little crooked but are almost straight! Here...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Baby has arrived! After checking on my mare yesterday morning she was looking closer still and baby had finally really dropped. She wasn't showing any other really different signs though and after checking her at 8:10, I went in to shower, came back out at 9:10 and saw her laying down with a...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm hoping it won't be a whole week more of anticipation! I have a feeling the moment I get too tired and give up on the "it could be any minute" type thinking she will lay down have that foal! I hope I have the energy to stay so vigilant! I was able to get a little...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Still no baby here although every move my mare makes has me ready to jump! Yesterday and today she has been biting her sides and rubbing her rear against fences and seems more nervous and agitated. I stayed up until 2am and then checked her every hour on the barn cam thinking it was surely...

    Mucus Plug???

    The past couple days I've gotten nothing when I've tried to get milk but today and yesterday she is not liking when I try to touch her udder so I haven't gotten a chance. I do have some of the milk testing strips and would love to test those out if I got a chance! The mucus plug came out a...

    Mucus Plug???

    I had a post from a couple of days ago asking for feedback on my mini mare's proximity to foaling so hopefully it's appropriate that I start a new thread here! I've been watching my mare closely and she looks like she could be close but the foal is still sitting sideways and her udder could...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Wow! I will definitely be keeping an eye on her. I have been reading a lot and have heard other stories about things changing very quickly so I suppose I'm going to have to be extremely vigilant! It makes me nervous! I will be really devastated if anything happens to the foal or my mare (she...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    More pictures from today (left/top pics are from yesterday). Tummy shape seems mostly the same but her udder looks to be filling nicely still. She has been holding her tail up for the last few days and I've noticed her twitching it a little more today. I have my camera all set up in the barn...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Ok after a little time I figured out how to get some pictures up here! So the first one is from Monday on all of them. The one to the right (or bottom) is taken today. You can see her udder is filling gradually but it's pretty firm and nothing comes or when I try to milk her. Actually I got...

    Help guesstimating foaling

    Hi I'm new here! I have an eight year old mini mare who is due to foal any time. She is currently (as of 5/10/17) 328 days along. She has had two foals in the past but this is her first with me and the first mini horse foal for me ever (although I've witnessed plenty of other animal births)...
