    You are quite correct Diane - the filly fairy is going to be very busy over the coming week! Hope she is not going to get too exhausted before she's finished with all that travelling. [​IMG]

    It is getting quite difficult to 'jump' between the many topics on LB with all these mares getting so close to foaling - never seem to get time to do anything else. When I remembered to pause long enough to check my e-mails yesterday, I had over 200 waiting for me, and that made me cross coz I had to sort through them and I was afraid I was missing something important with all our girls. [​IMG]

    I think your two girls might just foal virtually at the same time Bree - hate to tell you but one year I had three of them foaling all within 20 minutes!! Lots of whizzing between different stables and I can tell you I was ready for a cuppa and several cigarettes once it was all over. [​IMG]

    I know what you mean Anna, I've neglected my email/facebook/other forums in favour of watching all the girls here!

    I know a fresian breeder who had three mares go in the one night just one right after the other, she swore it was like they all thought "huh, that seems like a good idea. I might start pushing" and off they went [​IMG]

    I think you're right and it will end up very close with these two!

    I know she doesn't have the same size udder as rivain but her teats are pointing down, her belly is a rather obvious v and I swear the muslces around her tail are relaxing.

    Ashanti certainly snuck up on me, she really hadn't been doing much and since her due date is 12 days after Rivains I just figured I'd be waiting for awhile! But she was paddock bred so her due date may be earlier then I'm guessing. Personally I think she heard Diane questioning her belly and realised her sneaky act wasn't going to work [​IMG]

    Hey cassie, no foals yet. Both girls didn't change much over night so I'll take fresh photos this arvo. I reckon the earlier guesses of mid/late this week will be the soonest we'll see them! I hate waiting!

    Aaaww thanks everyone [​IMG] I'll let her know!

    I love the red bays, such a nice rich coat colour!

    Today neither Rivain or Ashanti wanted anything to do with me, took awhile to catch them. Twinkles (due in October) is being her usual 'must shed winter coat' self and just wants snuggles and scratches. Beauty, usually under foot, has fallen in love with Tinker who is across the laneway from their paddock so she spends most of her time not helping me, which is a relief! [​IMG] My november mare, Fantasy, is holding steady which is good since dhe already looks bigger then Twinky and my December mare we still aren't sure about.

    Udder pics on their way!

    Ashanti first:

    ashanti 2308 udderback.jpg

    Since pullng an udder from nowhere she has filled it bit by bit. I'm keeping a close eye on her incase she pulls a few more changes out with no warning.

    Rivain now:

    rivain 2308 udderback.jpg

    rivain 2308 udderside.jpg

    Rivain has done a lot of filling since that udder first appeared. The teats seem to be pointing mostly down but I think there is a little more to do there. Since her day 336 due date is the 1st of September she is VERY close.
