    For sure!

    Possibly good news today though. Her udder did not go down during the day! This is after 8 weeks of fluctuating. In fact, it actually grew throughout the day!

    Well Belle's udder FINALLY stayed throughout the day and actually drew some in the afternoon. It is even bigger this evening but still high ph. Not enough milk to check hardness when diluted. Undiluted hardness is well above 800. Super elongated.

    Not much longer now. If anything the center line will decrease a little. Apart from that she looks just about ready to foal :)

    Any updates Elizabeth? The first thing my 7 year old said to me this morning was “Did Belle have her baby? I need to check on her” lol

    Awww that is adorable. No Belle has not foaled yet. I think she has decided to see how long she can go without foaling. We are on day 341 now. She is back to testing 7.5 after being at 6.8. I have no idea what she is doing.

    Hopefully she doesn’t hold out on you too much longer!

    I believe we are getting close. Back down to 6.8. Udder full. Elongated and dark. Very uncomfortable today.

    I think tonight is the night. Ph is super low. Hardness super high. Her backside is so loose the foal might fall out...And her udder has arrived!

    Foaled 9:15 pm. Black colt. Waiting to see if he has silver or not. When she finally decided to foal it was very fast and practically textbook. He has 7.5 in cannons I believe. I’ll double check in the morning. Belle is the perfect mother. Colostrum is in and great quality. He was up in 20 minutes and drinking shortly after.

    It must have been fast because I checked a few times and just missed it! Congratulations! Happy it went so well.
