    and she's not even technically overdue yet. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif But the on again off again waxing and dripping milk is just to drive me insane isn't it?

    I'm DEFINITELY going to get whatever I need next year to have online foaling cams so you guys can sit up all night and watch and just phone me when you see a foot. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    This will be me next year => http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ies/sleepy.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ies/sleepy.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ies/sleepy.gif

    Nikita, have you tested her milk? That was really helpful for us. We were up only 2 nights. We missed it anyway. We both dozed off around 5 am and woke up at 6:40 and she had just been born. I swear Raissa knew we were watching her and she was waiting until we weren't looking. Sneaky mare! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    oh dear ... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif

    Here I thought that I would wake up, after a very restful night of sleep, to pictures of the 2nd palomino & white sabino TB foal and news of the little darling!
    Guess not, huh?! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif

    Oh well ... I had one born on Easter day (Johnny Onna Spot) - maybe that's what she is waiting for???

    i am in the same boat with my mare who generally foals at 324, 326 , 328 days . she is now 332 days and had wax for 5 days and so huge and sunken, i keep saying oh its tonite. i am starting to worry because my friends think she is overly huge and she was ultrasounded 3 x and only one was found, , but i have a friend who did the same and her mare just foaled twins, and they died. i am so nervous.

    338 1/2 days and counting..... This is the longest I have had one bake in 7 years. And the longest I've watched one. I've been spoiled. I can't even begin to imagine when people post that their horses are at 360+ days. I'd be looking for a gun to shoot myself. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/dead.gif

    And Spot, I'm thinking Sunday night or Monday. After calling Alicia on Tuesday night and telling her this is going to be IT.... and it wasn't http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/no.gif she told Liz to wait until she got back from Vegas on Sunday. Liz is probably listening. They're all trying to get me back. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif

    Who took the remote?? I want to change the channel. I want to watch *YOUNG STUD TV* instead!

    Good luck to everyone who is also watching and waiting.

    graystone - no I haven't, I've never done that and have been very lucky with just being able to tell without much watching. I guess I'm due to not have it easy.

    Bugs - next year you get your group together and I'll send you my phone number. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif Cheating is GOOD!

    stonefieldfarm - believe me those thoughts have gone through my head at times too! This started off as a twin pregnancy and the mare is HUGE! Ask Spot, she saw her last week and couldn't believe how massive she is. All of it just adds to the gut wrenching. I want it over!

    HFSH - 4?? Ouch! Two is enough thanks. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif Best wishes!!

    Were on day 353 and mine is in NO hurry to drop this baby. I'm watching the big four-legged potato on webcam right now. I think I'm going to go nuts if she doesn't have it soon!

    I finally set up a photo album...take a look!

    I have one at 349 today. She has just started to build some bag and I can barely express a few drops of clear liquid. I would be going crazy if I didn't know that she carried her first two for over 355 days.

    When I have enough to do a milk test I should have a better idea of how much longer she plans to hang onto her munchkin. I am impatient for this one though as it is my first foal from her. She's a states premium Hanoverian mare in foal to Regazzoni. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_cool.gif

    I know I've mentioned this before, but some lady in WI years ago had a mare go 401 days.

    She named him 401(k).

    Only 62 1/2 more days to go to TIE that record! You'd be more of a babbling idiot if you were on foal watch another 2+ months with her http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif

    Nikita must be propped up in a corner sleeping somewhere ... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif

    It is the Elizabeth Victoria mare - Vegas' dam. In foal to Sato. The next mare - Special Lady is next to go. While they were originally about 4 weeks apart, now if Lizzie is 2 weeks late and Carly is 2 weeks early, Carly may well beat her to it, or Nikita will have the 2 foals back to back!

    What fun! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    I think Nikita is going to look into a foal cam for next year so she can sleep, and the nice COTH'ers from around the world can watch the monitor for her and call her once the water has broken, and she can get some nice sleep and let others stay up instead!

    Good plan if it works ... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    Nikita is at the store buying a baby monitor -- and her mare is probably having the baby while she is gone. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    Whoops -- I am wrong. Barn Brat is buying the monitor. Where IS Nikita??!!

    Perhaps I am a light sleeper, or just lucky. The last foal that I had, I had a baby monitor. I slept through all of the normal horse noises, but when her water broke, it was like an alarm went off.

    Now I have a camera. I just sleep in front of the TV with the sound up high, and I am hoping that I will hear her when she becomes restless. I wake up several tmes a night anyways, and just look up at the TV. Sure beats running out to the barn to check everytime!

    Nikita wont be back for awhile. Said that mare is VERY uncomfortable and streaming milk right now.
    So - one would assume that she will go tonight.

    Palomino & white sabino ... palomino and white sabino ... and of course healthy and happy - both the mare AND the foal!

    Hopefully the next update will be one with pictures of the new arrival! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
