    Okay,
    I’m really hoping my eyes aren’t deceiving me (they have before). This is one of my minis that I am really hoping is in foal. She is 32.5 inches. She was bred in late April. Haven’t seen a heat since. The first picture was July. The second picture is normal winter body. Third picture is mid October. Fourth picture was 11/16. The last few pictures are the stallion who is 32 inches and her at other times because I do not think you can have too many pictures. I really feel like I see a difference but I thought I did the year before too. One difference is she went from measured hay to free choice starting in August. She is also on Dumor equistages. So what do you think?
    Thanks

    I really hope so! <3 I have judged them both on the online Facebook shows, and think they would make gorgeous foal.

    Thank you! I love showing there. Hopefully, I can show in live shows soon. Both of these two were shown before I got them, so I would love to show the possible foal as well.

    Haven’t updated everyone here in a while. Belle is in foal. She hit 274 days today and I think she’ll foal early. She still has a tiny belly. But everything looked good on the ultrasound. She has already had a little bit of bag development. So excited!

    Officially day 300. I think Belle still has a bit. She goes to the vet a week from tomorrow so in the meantime I’m keeping a close eye. Anyway here are a few pictures. Her bag is growing daily and she is making a lot of progress.

    Well the camera is finally working. The quality is questionable at times but hopefully we can fix that. A tornado passed about 1/2 mile away 2 nights ago so part of the problem may be that. Anyway here is the link if anyone wants to watch. http://www.marewatchers.com/camera/cam/1309


    She has made a lot of progress lately. Here are a couple recent photos

    I had a lot and I mean a LOT of help. Technology is not my thing. But I live off site so I need all the eyes I can get.

    Belle is 330 days today. She lost almost all of her udder 2-3 days ago. But it is back and just as big if not bigger. She has been pretty elongated for a couple of days. Still testing at 7.8 with clear sticky milk. She has been pretty uncomfortable the last 24-36 hrs, which isn’t surprising at this stage. She still has some work to do on her udder and milk, but that can change quickly!

    At night or when laying around, her udder will be larger and increase. When you notice it staying full as she is out moving around, you know you are getting close :)

    I hope so! But I’m happy with a healthy mare and foal. She is still fluctuating a lot. Her udder fills a lot between 10 am and midnight. When it has gone down, it’s been overnight. I think she still has a week or so left, but that can change quickly. This virus has really thrown a wrench in my plans though. It’s changing a lot of what I was planning to do. Just for fun, here are pics from tonight. I think her bag still has some filling to do but with a maiden who knows exactly what it will do. But she is still nice and elongated. Still testing 7.8.

    Belle is very uncomfortable tonight. She dropped from a ph of 7.8 to 7.2 in 2 hrs. I guess we will see.

    She is really uncomfortable isn't she, I'm watching now. Lot's of pressing, pawing and stretching. Gonna keep an eye on her, I feel like you might get some action soon!

    All perfectly good signs she's getting close. At this age pf pregnancy , her behaviour or changes to it are a really good thing to look at. Hows her udder going ? Is it staying full ?

    Not staying completely full. But staying partly full. I think she still has udder development to go. But I don’t know if she’ll try to do it right at foaling. Hardness has skyrocketed today. She is back to being elongated. And her hindquarters are like jello.

    How is she doing? I was just watching (it’s a very welcome distraction with everything else going on in the world!) and oh she is too cute! Excited for you and hope that you will have a safe delivery of a healthy foal really soon

    Thank you!

    Well she is getting closer, no doubt about that. She is nice and elongated and quite red inside. Her udder has grown a lot this evening, it remains to be seen if it stays that way. Ph is still about what it was, but calcium has skyrocketed, so in theory, ph should drop soon. I have a feeling that once she finally tests ready, she will foal soon after. But who can say with a maiden?
