I'm watching my maiden Hano who I kept inside today so I can watch her on the camera... She's definately in pre labor and looks to be about 7 min apart, down from 12 when I started documenting... Boy is she getting fiesty in there!
Wish I had her on mare stare for you all to see!
I suspect her water's going to break anytime now and I have my bucket of stuff ready to go, keys in the truck (just in case) and all of my friends on stand by as I'm all alone with my 4 year old daughter today... Ugh.
She's excited too and ready when Mommy's ready (we even had a couple of drills this morning.
Let's hope it's a success!!!

Reason: We had a colt!
We were watching my friend's mare all night last year and she keeping rubbing/slamming her tail... rearing up and stomping down... it was so weird. We kept telling her she couldn't just shake out the baby, lol. She settled down that morning thankfully. I'll be curious to see if she acts similarly this year!
Ugh... Thunderstorm stopped her around 4:00 PM. She's still in labor just not going to go as quickly as I hoped...
So, I took advantage of the time (after the storm passed) and turned her out for a little while, watched her stretch her legs and really tell me what she thinks about all of this, lol... And of course we had some lovey-dovey time... So, it looks like I'm up tonight.
And yes, my mare was rearing a little as well! Silly girls aren't they?
Mine has been acting silly all week so it'll be nice to finally get this show on the road!
NOOOO Don't go talking about the red bag - Eek! I went a clinic last year about problem foalings, I just watched the DVD last night...
A friend of mine had one a few years back and thankfully the two survived, though she's been breeding for 20+ years 5-6 mares a year, where as this is only my 5th foal.
Thanks all! I'll let you know... Just wish Hubby were here (nice time for a business trip eh?)
