    firs, what time of pregnancy do you feel cleraly foal kicking? I know, with some mares, sometimes there is no clearly movements to feel or see.. My mare, Lilli, is now first time pregnant, but even though she is waiting from my own stallion, i dot know how far she is now! about 200 days, at least, i think, because foal really kicks in there. maybe more? And yes, she is been with stallion like.. like almost all the time.
    There is picture of them, old pictures, so not "now looking like this". Spring pictures, and now here in finland its beginning of the winter.
    Mare, Lilli, is the perlino one, stallion, Luumu, is bay tobiano.

    Hi Ida, Welcome to the forum.

    Generally around 7 months, but this is not the case with all mares. If a mare is a Maiden mare, she can be carrying much higher up in the rib cage , so movement is less visible.

    Cheers Ryan

    On my mares if I wrap my hands around belly, so hands meet in front of milk bar, I can feel slight bumps and kicks.
    I check out two mares due beginning to mid April today. Felt bumps on one, couldn't feel anything on the other. Both are definitely pregnant.

    How exciting for you :)

    You will definitely need to separate lily and the stallion before she foals. Keep us posted on her progress :)
