haha ok thanks Jess!!
I run all my pairings through the caluclator, especially now that I choose between two stallions!
Wow nice udder teats pointing down too..maybe tomorrow I know we said Wednesday but hmmm cant wait to see this baby
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.
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.
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.
Rivain shots from this afternoon:
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
I think you're right and it will end up very close with these two!
And new Ashanti pics from this arvo.
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.
I thought that was rivain's udder but aww never mind ashanti can go first we dont mind..make an orderly que ladies plz
just looked back at the udder pics and both girls teats look like are pointing down
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
wow talk about a change!! Ashanti might be the first of our girls to go!!! sneaky little thing!! Suzie I hope your learning lots from Ashanti and it would be very good if you would copy her lol hehe
Bree, have you got a foal yet?? how are both your girls looking today?
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!
haha I think you may be right LOL
I hate it too!! how are you going with the foaling alarm?
Waiting t find out if I have the older model or the new. If it's the old one then my whole system has to go in for an upgrade If it is the new then I just have to send in my transmitter for repair. FIngers crossed for the later!
definitley!!! hope you get it up n running again shortly! you must be exhausted!!
Fingers crossed it will be tomorrow I just love that pretty girl Rivain such a cutie I do love bays hopefully my baby will be just like her cant wait to see her baby
I agree Definitley one GORGEOUS mare!!
Aaaww thanks everyone 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! 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!
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 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.
wow so exciting!! love seeing the daily changes!!!
