You're getting so close! My mini delivered at huge healthy filly 306 days. It seems mini babes don't have to always bake as long as standard size horses?! Can't wait to see what in there!!!

She's looking great Holly, and it doesn't looks as though it will be long now.  I'm off to Sussex today to spend a few days with the family - when I return I hope to see two new babies!  Good luck and safe foaling to Precious and Pandora.   :)

This mornings pictures. Body shape still looks closer than udder or vulva.
I felt foal kick in the tail head area, very exciting.
Hope udder fills before she foals, so I have milk testing to help me determine foaling!

So excited!!  I was with family the last few days, and only got to check in on my phone, which almost makes it impossible for me to text back since I have such fat fingers -- well fat for phone use.

Praying for a safe and uneventful delivery, and can't wait to see this little one!

Well spent the day helping my folks clean up their yard. Put ponies up for the night, precious udder was back down to flaps.
She is confusing me with her belly shape looking like foal may be positioning. But udder and vulva doing nothing. I know that can't happen quickly, but it never has to my mares so I am feeling torn, wondering if I should be watching her close or not.
Diane, does her belly look forward of center to you? I am going to take more pics and post next barn check.

It looks VERY forward of center to me and remember charm was a wrinkly vulva, barely bagged up and not even forward of center and she foaled!

This is happening! This is not a drill! :p

Rocklone, do you have any pictures of charm close to foaling? Did she have any milk prior to foaling? If not, how soon after?

She had liquid for a few weeks before but it creamed up about two nights before but I was still very yellow and thin. She never had a big bag before or after but clearly didn't cause an issue. The biggest bag she had ever was the day after weaning!

Boobs at 312


Belly


Vulva


Boob juice


She foaled at 314.

Omg boob juice!! That's so funny!!!
I can't get a drop of milk, and feel like her udder should be much fuller.
The inside of he vulva is almost the Scarlet color, but vulva isn't near relaxed, IMHO, lol she needs to get with he foaling program!

Baby looks forward of center, but not quite lined up yet, as she is still looking pretty wide.  I think some rolling will be in order, which she can do pretty quickly. 

Keep us posted for sure!

It was pretty warm today so I bathed precious, she has been sweaty and sticky. Now she is nice and clean. Figured better get it done before the cold returned. Udder was a bit bigger this am, back down after exercise. Still wide. Keep on waiting, I would like to see her hang on a few more weeks.

With the up and down you may have some time. Just take note when the "down" doesn't happen. You should be almost ready at that point.
