Fabulous!!  That is great news!  Now remember, her values can change nicely, or dramatically.  We've had mares go from the high 7's in pH to foaling in one day, or others nicely go day by day slowing dropping.

I will be waiting excitedly for the next report!!

This kind of news is quite a tease, when the cam is down!  Hopefully, Precious is outside doing some fabulous rolling of that little one into position!!

Back eating her hay, standing in the exact same place as the last time I checked and the cam was on!

Ok Precious.  You're very "Precious" but that little one is just as precious to us!  So what about it?  Soon please....unless you're using the extra time to add more SPOTS!!!!

Think..... or even a fewspot would be great!!

Seems little Ms. Is starting to make changes again. Her right side has plumped up. And pH 8.4, calcium around 400.
Top this morning bottom tonight

I just keep telling myself it's worth it! Lol

Ph back up to 8.4 ... But had a bead of wax. Milk super thick, thicker than Ive seen before, calcium still to low.
Anyone else that milk tests had wax on a mare w/out colostrum ?
