I agree, I think she has a little bit to go but not much longer. I don't have a thread for my other mare yet. The other mares due date is August 11th. She just started to get a tiny bag last week.She's coming right along.
Looks like she might develop more bag though, as the edema in front may move back. It also looks like her belly might drop a bit more and forward, so it will get more of that v-shape, instead of the current duffle bag look. Hopefully, she won't drag it out to foal with her friend in August.
Do you have another thread for the other mare? She doesn't have to be a mini, you know. We like ALL equids...big horses, little horses, donkeys...yes, all of them are welcome here!
Yes! She's being watched very close, the foal has not got into position yet. Other then that she's ready! Hoping baby gets in position soon as we lost 1 this spring out of a first timer. The foal was a true breech..If her udder isn't going down during the day you are probably really close, I wouldn't take my eyes off of her. Good luck!!
Ok! She definitely looks slimmer today. Hoping the foal has moved into position as I don't want another breech foal this year. My other mare is always slab sided, it's hard to tell where her foal is at. I've only seen it move at the bottom by her udder.I've very rarely seen a mare get completely "slab sided", but the shape of the stomach does change shape as the foal moves into position for delivery.
This is why I always look at the position the foal is in, by standing directly behind the mare. As the mare enters the last trimester, the sides of her stomach continue to grow and become quite visible when standing directly behind the mare. As the foal "drops" into position , she shape of her stomach will change, not always to "slab sided" but there's always a noticeable change.
