I took my stud out last yr on Sept 15th so I know she's more than 11 months. Every weekend when Marty puts her thread on saying Whatchadoingthisweekend, I want to say -Watching Bashful - but, she's still with child or with foal. I know I should just settle down and not worry about her but she's the last to foal and she's making me crazy. I was even thinking it may be a false pregnancy but her bag is big and hard, nipples straight down, she's been so loose behind for the last few wks, I'd swear I can reach in and pull the little begger out! So I had my vet out today and he stuck his hand up there. The first thing he said is it's alive, I pinched his foot and it moved. He said it feels quite small. He said the feet and nose are there, also said something in there, can't remember what now, isn't twisted, which is something they check for. Then he told me it's not the number of days but its the adrenal pituatary axis sp?? gland that matures and sends a message that says, mom, I'm ready to come out. He also said that they may be late if placental insuffiency nutrients are there. This mare is in a weedy patch now on this picture but she has the same good hay and grain that the rest get. I need to have her have that foal soon, it has got to come out, I am just simply worried although she doesn't act uncomfortable and isn't rolling alot, just standing around, waiting too. Here she is, here's Bashful today. (The halters on because she has her Equipage monitor on.)

Ahhhhh, I bet she foals when she's good and ready! Since the vet said everything looks ok, I'd try not to worry. I have one more mare due to foal this year. She's a petite little 29" mare my daughter bought last fall and we bred her after bringing her home. She's due Oct 2, but she looks to be getting ready for an early Sept foal. I sure hope so as it would relieve my worries when I head to AMHA World!

Hey, face it Marnie!!

Bashful loves all the extra attention and TLC that pregnant mares get!

She will hang on to that foal just as long as she can - just to keep you home waiting on her hand and foot!!

She is such of a lovely mare and that baby will be well worth waiting for!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

OH my gosh we are sooooo twins. I did the same thing on the forum and as I typed there went Holly down with no warning and I was like making a mad dash out there.

Come on, tell us all about him??????

Pics is a must!

Atleast it didn't take you 2 days to see if he had a weenie or not.......like some people here


Are you going to name him Sneezy or Doc, or Dopey or what????
