Close, I think. Of course I thought that a long time ago. Being new to this I'm still learning. Fluid from her teats is yellow, thin, watery like. Not sticky and not dripping. She's been grouchy to the other mini but still comes to me for scratches. I don't think she can get bigger. Poor thing waddles and walks really slow today.

Here's a side view. It has just rained.

Could be any day! My mare 3 days before foaling still had clear watery liquid. And her udder looked like that and her teets did not fill.

Thank you. Nervously waiting as we lost one back in February by our other mini. Scared to go through that again. I did notice tonight small traces of blood in her opening, teats enlarging a little more but she still acts normal ... Eating fine and coming up for scratches and attention from me.

Mine was still eating like normal the day she foaled, the last time i checked on her she was eating her hay, went inside to get some sleep and woke up to a baby at her feet! Hopefully it won't be much longer!

Question, when do the foals get their actual color? Does it take awhile? Lily is already turning black!

Made it through another night. This morning her udders look like one. Stretched so tight . Wants to rub her her hind and on the side of the barn or have me scratch it lol. Milk squirts but no beading like colostrum. Will take pictures later today.

Looking at her nipples, I'm thinking might still be another day or two? Still watery fluid, not sticky and I think her nipples will get more enlarged? I appreciate everyone's opinion!

I agree she is extremely close now. I reckon her udder will a little more yet. You will notice the center line will disappear.

Just keep an eye on her behavior, rolling , biting at sides, butt rubbing etc
