    Default How to guarantee a foaling date...

    Technically my mare is due May 15th. However, late in the year she tends to go about 10 days early so i decided to sign up for a horse show next weekend assuming the foal would be here already. She looks ready, belly low, soft rump, full udder, peeing more, eating smaller quantities at a time, etc. BUT pH high and Ca low

    I am sure I will have to scratch next weekends show as that will be the day her pH drops and Ca spikes!! I guess at that point I'll just consider the $500 in show fees as a pay off for a guaranteed foaling date

    I knew it was a gamble to plan to show so near her foaling date!!
