I can't get the videos to play but foal movement is good!

She seems to be more sunken in at her sides, and her udder is getting a little harder, and bigger but not much. Pics were taken today

I just reread your opening post. If she is supposed to be due soon and you are sure she is pregnant, just keep a real close eye on her. She may be one of those mares that doesn't produce an udder till foaling. You said you noticed heaps of movement when you got her (which is great). As she gets towards the end of her pregnancy , movement will become less visible as there becomes less room for the foal to move around.

Are you still in contact with the previous owner? Often helps sometimes to ask how her previous pregnancies went. Did she produce an udder prior to foaling etc. If you are, and can get a breeding date or dates, it will give us an indication on when the foal maybe coming. Being pasture bred , there's always the possibility of her falling pregnant on a later breeding ( always go off the first breeding date)

Good Luck and let us know if any changes :)

Past owner said that her udder will enlarge thats all he said. And I can definitely see foal movement and her udder is getting bigger from the very first picture I've seen. Just know that she was with the stud for about 4 months I have the papers for it. But don't know when she was actually bred.

This is her belly today. Not much difference.

It's nerve wracking isn't it? She doesn't look ready yet going by the book. Watch and wait, gotta love foal watch. ;)

Yes it is. She's been very spooky lately and her hind end us starting to get very loose. But hardly no udder but it does seem to be getting hard.

I checked her udder yesterday and it was pretty hard but I don't understand why because there's still not a big udder

She's going to get there her way in her time, just to make you totally crazy. I would think the hardness is her getting ready to start a bag but that's just a guess.

Started off as patches and now she's basically just lost it on her rump area like the recent pictures I posted. She doesn't have any bumps under her fur so idk

Can you take a picture standing directly behind her. looking at her butt say 5-10m back. ?

It will give us an indication on how the foal is currently positioned.

I took this picture today.

Going by the book it doesn't look like there's much going on there but that doesn't mean there isn't. How sure are you about her breed date? Keep watching closely, they can surprise you.
