It's been almost 2 weeks since Sunny was ultrasounded and found to be heavy in foal. Still no bag but seems like she continues to fill out more and more. She seems to have a bigger appetite as well, so a big sign that she's close to foaling will be when she goes off her feed.

The vet guesses that she was about 9 months along at the time of the ultrasound.

Here's a link to my other topic about her to give you some background: http://www.miniature...0

And here's some pictures taken today 10/19.......

Or just wait for it to move, or report it and ask for a move. Avoids duplicate threads


Good luck! FIngers crossed for trouble free foaling

As Renee said - welcome to the nutty mare watchers club!


Lets have some more details about Sunny - who she's in foal to, has she foaled before etc??

If you have another month or so to go yet, as your vet says, (thus giving us plenty of time to get to know you, chat and learn more about your sweet Sunny) then you will not be seeing signs of an udder yet. So just relax, sit back and join in with the threads here on the MS/BCW Chat Board - plus post regular pics for us all drool over (how about a few of your other minis too?).

Again, welcome - great to have you join us.

Yup about a month and a half left, if the vet guessed right. She was a given up by her former owners and they had her in with a stud for about a year up till we got her so no idea when exactly she was bred.

Here's a pic. taken the 13th of her udder....or lack there of lol

So not many details about her, as she was owned by an elderly couple who couldn't even remember her name (or if they even named her), we don't know her exact age, the vet guessed her at about 3-4 yrs. old. I don't believe she's ever foaled before. I think the elderly couple only had her about a year, for all of which she was in with a stud.

And that's all we "know" about her. Her background is a complete mistery, the former owners didn't do anything with her for the year they had her, when I got her she was very skittish and very hard to catch. Now she can be in a larger pen and I can catch her easily without a halter on her. She's still touchy but is doing much better and she lets me touch and mess with her bag without fussing so we're making progress.

The only things I know about the stud is the old couple named him Hercules (he's the only one out of the bunch that they knew (remembered) the name of. He is supposedly papered but I have no idea what his registered name is, what registry or what happened to his papers, they said he's about 15 yrs. old but who knows for sure. One of the other mares that came with my girl had a foal by the same stud about 6 months ago.

I'll post some pictures of the stud in a few minutes.

Here's some pictures of the stud she's bred to....(in these pics he just had a quick brushing and when these were taken he still needed his feet trimmed, so he looks a bit "rough"
he measured in at about 31" tall if I'm remembering correctly, it was either 30" or 31" tall.
