I would guess she is around the 250 day mark but thats just a random guess.

Here is my foaling signs web page for a pony about her size if it helps you at all.Link

She is really cute

9/10 months....OOHHH... A holiday baby, how fun is that(besides the fact you cant touch the mare) It could be "halloweens spook"baby or "A Thankgiving Turkey" Or if I'm too far with my guess " A christmas day present" or even " a New Year baby".

Just relax, and walk wide, some horses warm up and some just arent ment to.

It will all be ok.

Oh she's just lovely. I agree with a turkey baby. She is so prettyand feels afraid I think. With time and patience she could make someone a super mare.

She's a pretty mare--I like her a lot; I'm no help as to when she's likely to foal. She has a pleasant look about her, and I think that if someone could spend quite a bit of time working with her she would come around...I didn't get around to replying to your other thread about her, so thought I'd just add that in here!

She is a pretty mare. Do you know anything about her history? Might be a help to know what she's been through in the past. I agree, she looks mistrustful. Maybe with time you can overcome that.

York Beach, Maine originally from Ireland!
You know the other thing is sometimes they will come around a bit after tehy foal?

My mare I posted about calmed down after she foaled, the foal was so friendly and Momma started to take cues from her foal.

Just an optimistic thought!

She really is a very, very pretty mare ... she looks like she's a bit curious as to what's going on! And, at least you can get a halter on her!!

she has been here for 8 months. Paris (her name) does watch your every move, in fact I don't think I have ever seen her ears back even when she kicks/rears.....very alpha mare, snorts, paws ...if cornered or if she feels threatened she will try and escape thru solid walls/over fences/over or thru you.....to me that is not an enjoyable experience for the handler or for the horse...especially when there are so many wonderful mares looking for homes. He won't touch her now because she is in foal and he doesn't want to 'stress' her...but in reality, he can't get near her either.....sigh...tough situation on all...sad situation.....maybe after she foals she will improve a bit.......

Wow, what a looker Yellowrose!


Here's a thought. How would we feel if we were uprooted in the last trimester of our pregnancy to a foreign country, knowing nobody. It's a scary and vulnerable situation to be in to say the least. Horses have no voice in the home of their choice. Some resign themselves, others get in the cornered tiger mode.

A wise horsewoman once said to me that equines come into our lives to teach us something. The best we can do is make their plight better and, if necessary, find a home where they can flourish. Truth be told, there have been times when I didn't have the knowledge/experience to bring out the best in a horse, but made darned sure that a home was found that could.

Hope this helps.
