If I'm understanding your dates correctly, she's due late Jan-early Feb? I know you said earlier you had no breeding dates. I forget what part of the world you're in. Is that late winter for you? Brrrrr for the baby if it is! LOL And an even BIGGER brrrrrrrrr for you on foal watch!!

I dont have an exact due date because I didnt breed her, she was bred at a friends place, they were put together 3/6/16, she remembers they bred soon after so that is the earliest date I have for her. She could have been covered a week or 2 later. Given how she is progressing I dont think its much later than that.
Yes Jan- Feb at earliest, I am in Texas so not cold like most have to deal with But down right freezing for us :P
I am prepared though, with foal blankets, heat lights ( if needed, the kind that hang so not dangerous for barn use) and lots of thick bedding. Got a make shift hallway on the barn so that will help this winter.
My welsh mare used to foal in Feb, so I am pretty good at dealing with early foalings, though I would much prefer March ? April foalings!!
This season I should also have a June and July foaling, which to me is worse because its just so darn hot here.

Here in Florida I always bred for March/April/early May foals, too.  The heat in the summer was just so much!  Had a few early babies, and also used deep bedding a heat lamps when necessary.
