    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Cleveland Bays are my favorite, have been for many years thanks to a gelding named "Harry" (Great Scott). I only wish they made good show hunters.....

    Wish I could figure out why my cam is so sensitive...did discover that the location of Mr P's Excursion mattered!

    My cam is off, we turn it off around 7 (and I went back to bed )
    Male family members are playing around with motorized vehicles, probably one or more in the way.

    I hope everything okay because the cam is showing weird shadowy pics with a lot of flailing around!

    Jingles that it is just the cam being weird!

    Just a little info on the marestare cams or any cam for that matter....If you right click on the cam picture and go down to video settings, you can adjust the brightness and contrast of the stall so its easier to see. I did that with this cam and while she is still difficult to see it did make it MUCH better! Hope that helps and a big GOOD LUCK to you!

    yeek, what's going on with the cam tonight?? Even lightening it up to where I can see the mare it's......yuck! Oh, wait, the picture just got a LOT better.

    Is this the same mare? She looks a lot lighter (and not wrapped). Did we miss the CB foaling?

    The CB has not foaled yet. I was up with her most of the night and she was up and down, rolling, etc. Then got quiet about 3:30am like nothign was going on! Lovely mares!!
    Her body is telling us she is 100% ready, so...... were just waiting!

    Poor LaNet....I remember that feeling from last year waiting on six foals!

    Good luck with her.

    I guess you are getting a lot of rain also? I think we wil have it all week long. Shavings were supposed to be delivered last week and they didn't get here and I started striping stalls and it is just a mess here. I hope Oshoga doesn't decide to foal out this week.

    Yup, Bonnie is on day 350, or so. Last night was only one false alarm, but even when her monitor doesn't go off I wake up and have to check....you never know when the batteries will die, she's certainly been wearing it long enough.
    I loff my marestare cam though.
    Tonight's the full moon, and it's going to be HOT today.
    PLEASP PLEASE, foal
