Sadly no foal last night.

Tj im only going to get brown or black from her,all she seems to throw.

My Black filly Shiraz went off to the trainers on Sunday,they love her up there too.Not sure when she coming back as i will see how she goes.Told the trainer not to push her to hard on that foot she hurt last year.

It's so frustrating to wait, especially when you are worried about your mare. I've never heard of anything like that happening due to pregnancy. If she was allergic to the foal, she'd have aborted or absorbed it I would think. If it's hormones, the vet should be able to test for abnormal levels.
I'm crossing my fingers for you. Hopefully next time I check, it'll be good news and pics of the cutie.

Tested her milk and its the same as yesterday,its 250 ppm.Its says on the chart if exceeds 200ppm that you have 48 hours or less, well we will see.Was slightly on edge when she came in tonight for tea but nothing really out of the ordinary.Her milk when i did the test was really easy to express.

What you reckon guys???

I hope you are not testing all that milk that LIL one will need scratch

I go by what the utters are telling me. If you see pin size wax on them it is getting closer. When you see what looks like (what I call it anyway) small pearl size drops on the tips of the utters you are usually about 24 hours away from foaling. On some mares you may see some spots on the back legs that are the milk dripping out and drying.

The people I know that used those milt test said they do not work.. I have never used them simply because I do not mess with the milk that is coming in period.. No

I have mares that stretch in the vulva, bag, (for some time) drip milk then foal. I have one that does it all at the same time.. I have one that never gets the milk until right at foaling.. I had a few that did nothing they were supposed to do and were eating when the water broke.. affraid lol! It really makes a difference when you know the mare and know how she will proceed with the big event.. cheering

My older mare was checked not in foal. Now she always waits till the last month. Then she gets a big belly and bags.. This year she never got big but she did bag. She is the one who had the sweet lil filly we lost this year.. She and a few others have had many babies for us... I know just what to expect from them. ily

If this is your first time with her and she has had other foals call the prevous owner and with any luck they paid attention to their mares and can tell you what she will do.. study

Hi Bluejay,she has had other foals with me too and she as always never ever gives anything away.

Ive given up the milk test as of tonight,it was back upto 250ppm so whos to say whats going on.

Would help if she did wax up but she never does.She eats and dont go off her food.She one of those that just drops the foal.

She did have little white speckles on ther teats tonight,would help if she was one of those that had nice large teats but nope.

She one awkward momma but i love her.
Foal was kicking the ten bells outta her tonight.


With the milk test you only draw off 1.5ml so its hardly anything so it wont affect the foal but im not bothering anymore.Keep to the sleepless nights Sleep .She will drop when the weather gets better,weather turned horrible tonight.

lol! Like I said, they drive us crazy on purpose.. Sleep lol! I have been told the strips you use to test your water work. I just have never used any of that stuff and gone by the what the mares body is telling me.. And, for sure there are those who keep it a secret.. I have missed a few.. Had a few born in single stalls instead of foaling stalls. Got up in the morning and there was the cute lil face staring out at me.. cake

Nope not getting much,seh was acting up last night.Blalnked me and my daughter and kinda just didnt take any notice of the fact we were in the stable with her.

Had to keep her in today as when she went out first thing the weather was awful and she got cold,so i brought her in for the day.She was happy about that.
Her udder huge and tight but that can be because she been in.

nothing last night except her buddy had her foal last night a gorg red dun filly.
But zana acting real odd today,didnt want to go out in field unless i stayed with her.When i left her to muck out she went nuts and was charging around like a racehorse not good,Brought her in where she settled down better and kept looking over to her buddies stable.Very,very restless even to the point she was pawing the stable and then rolled.Not what she does normally.This girlie never lets her guard down,she has always been the top of any herd she been in and to roll right in front of me is a no no for her.

The local riding club has turnt up for there jumping session so i guess she will switch off for a while.

If she dont have him tonight i will be shocked.

Bear in mind this horse never ever waxes up she not helping me much.
