My mare is 170 days today! We're officially halfway there, woohoo!!! She may be just over halfway, since last time she was bred she went 322 days. It's so exciting! I've gotta say, though, that if she gets twice as big as she is now, then the poor mare isn't going to be able to move when she gets close to foaling! I'm beginning to think I got elephant semen instead of (oversized) pony juice!
And I got my delivery of 2nd cutting alfalfa yesterday... 3000+ pounds of it .
Day 150 is tomorrow! Poor sweetie had a bit of a reaction the day after she got her Pneumabort shot - she was cranky and stiff as a board under saddle.
Mine is also already getting a belly - EVERYone is commenting on it at the barn, even the vet commented on it! Jeebus, she's cooking a monster in there - it's only s'posed to be the size of a rabbit right now!!!
Feel free to join the countdown! I hope your mare decides to foal conveniently for you!
ASB, a lot of people here don't seem to like Pneumabort. I actually made a poll, and most people voted for Prodigy, so that's what I gave my mare. I don't think she had a problem, but then, she just sits in a field and eats all day, so I wouldn't really know if she cranky and stiff under saddle .
She has a belly on her too! She definitely is waddling around her field. Haha. I even had an ultrasound done a month ago to make SURE there was only one in there. Shes a 13 y/o maiden and shes showing like a real broodie. Lol.

We're at 184, 159, 135, 103, and 98. The 159 and 135 days are looking the most preggo but 159 looked preggo all last winter when open! My 184 day is a maiden and starting to get a baby belly too. I'm 6 months preggo myself and really sympathasizing...
Can't believe foaling season will be here in 5 months!
My mare is so enormous, I can't believe it. She's 15.2hh, the stallion is 15hh, and I swear this baby is going to come out horse sized and mature about 18hh. If I wanted to ride her, I'd probably have to put the extra-wide gullet in my saddle. I rode her a couple months ago (for the first time since my accident in May) and didn't need to use a wither relief pad.
Does anyone know if they're getting boys or girls? I want to be surprised, but I just have a feeling it's a girl.
