Yay Stormy! Please post any other Marewatcher cams, I'd love to watch them!!
[/QUOTE







I can definitely do that!
My camera should be up soon. Having some difficulties with it but hopefully they’ll be resolved tomorrow....

In the meantime here are a few that are supposed to be getting close. You can even go to the Marewatchers website and it has a ton of cameras but they aren’t updated as often. The facebook group is very good about updating.







All of those have mares who should be getting close. Several should foal in the next 7-10 days. Some earlier I’d expect.

Nice clip job on your colt!
Thank you! I am pretty happy with how he is developing.

On the Rhythem front....she’s in no hurry lol. Barely starting an udder. I’m getting anxious to see change. Oh well, it’ll happen sooner or later. Meanwhile I’m still showing her online. No one even realizes she’s in foal, much less full term unless I tell them lol. Dice (the sire) isn’t looking too bad either for a 9 year old stallion in pasture condition 🤣

Well looks like we’re getting close to entering the final stretch. Today is day 317. She still has some udder to build but it is steadily and rapidly growing. Her behavior has changed drastically and she has softened up around the tail head. I’ll physically check her again in a couple hrs and hopefully post some updated pictures. I’m HOPING to have a foal in the next 1-2 weeks.

Well I’m getting close to 24/7 foal watch if not already there. Her udder pretty much quadrupled in 12 hrs. Ph is starting to drop and she couldn’t be looser in the backside without the foal just falling out. Her behavior is drastically different and it’s supposed to storm all night. And of course next week is finals week. 🤯

Well ph is still high this morning. I’d expect it to drop soon though with how much progress she made. I can BARELY get anything to test though.

Still testing high, but her udder is really getting there. Still some growth to do. But she’s shown how fast she can change. This was last night vs this morning. 321 days now. I am optimistic she’ll foal in the next week. Of course I say that so she’ll probably go longer.

Okay y’all, this is where we are....ph is still high, hardness is too though. Brix has steadily risen and is now 22. Best udder to date. Milk squirts and drops now instead of barely comes when I try to test. It is thick, sticky, and cloudy. I have two tests today and will be gone most of the day. I have people watching her but only when she is on camera for the most part. So she will probably be in most of the day. Hopefully I can let her out some this afternoon when I get home. But I don’t feel good not having eyes on her at this point, especially for that long. She may hold out a bit longer but it’s also very possible that her ph will drop quickly with how much she has changed. She still has to fill a bit, but we all know how fast that can happen.

Well she is being nice and methodical about dropping. Brix is 28, hardness (undiluted) is off the charts, ph is about 7.0. I’m predicting the weekend. As in starting tomorrow night lol. Of course she may decide to move things along today....I guess we’ll see! Meanwhile she is enjoying all the extra of her favorite thing in the world....FOOD
