    No need or time for a 'lay in' - pandering to the needs of an expectant mare is the order of the day!! [​IMG]

    WAKE UP CASSIE - it is Suzie's breakfast time (or it will be by the time you get dressed and outside!!)

    And yes, do lets have an early morning milk test if the lovely Suz allows. [​IMG]

    WOW!! Are you sure it is 'proper' wax Cassie? It should look and feel like candle grease - not soft like a blob of milk.

    Try to get a picture rather that go for the milk test. But whatever it is........SHE'S GETTING VERY CLOSE. [​IMG]

    Sorry but I'm really feeling zonked, it's 11.30pm and I just have to get to bed. If I'm awake in the night I will check here again, but it looks like you will have to be awake at nights from now on Cassie, so grab a couple of hours snooze today if all looks ok with Suzie. [​IMG]

    Sending ((((HUGS)))) This is so exciting. [​IMG]

    There are moments in life you realise why horse people are different from regular people. The insane excitment over a word like "wax" is one of those moments [​IMG] :rofl [​IMG]

    Oooooh fantastic and even if it isnt wax if she is dripping milk she is very close. Shimmer was dripping milk in the morning and foaled that evening so I really hope Suzie does the same for you.

    I will be off to my bed soon but will try to tune in on the iphone during the night and hope I dont miss anything.

    Sounds so very promising!

    COME ON TWINKY! YOU NEED TO HURRY UP SO THE FILLY FAIRY IS BUSY WITH SUZIE!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] :rofl

    Actually we just got drenched in rain, as in light hail and sheets of driving rain which meant I couldn't see all the paddocks. Oh and all our gutters have flooded [​IMG] So perfect foaling weather [​IMG]

    I've never had one licking the ground. Does she have a mineral block Cassie? She might feel as though she is lacking in something seen baby would be taking so much from her at this point. Maybe when you go down the feed shop to get that spare bedding you msg me about, you could grab her one. But do put it up out of the foals reach when it arrives. They often like the taste a bit TOO much lol

    Im glad you decided to stay home. You can monitor all the little changes and progress today.

    Soft poop is a good thing too! She's starting her clean out. Is it small amounts? You'll find she will do small, soft poops often when she gets closer. [​IMG]

    Yep, wax or just droplets of milk are just as good an indication as the other. You are having a foal very soon Miss Suzie! [​IMG]

    Its hard to see Suzie sometimes in the paddock, but it looks like she has been biting at her side quite a few times... c'mon Suzie, a nice daytime baby would be JUST lovely [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ill have her up all day, but will be in and out of the computer room. Ill have the barn alarm on, and my phone on me Cassie. Feel free to call or MSG with any questions or worries, before, during and after foaling.
