How is she doing?

Times for foaling vary a lot and it can even differ from year to year in the same mare. 

I have had one who has had several between 0600-0900 in the morning, yet almost always after I've fed/checked on the mares.

I have one mare that has consistently foaled between 0100-0300 (very early morning) - again usually in between checks.  She also foaled her foals in that same time frame with her previous owner - she had some very detailed notes when I purchased the mare.  Then this year, she foaled after daylight!

Recently - almost all have seemed to foal as the sun is coming up.  We had 5 foals this year (1 is deceased)...

Hi everyone long time since I've updated... my mare is over 399 days in foal to a mule!!!! I know what you're thinking, is she really pregnant??? I actually waited to post until my vet came yesterday, saw theres a baby in there with external US it's alive and very active, not in perfect position yet should I be worrying :( vet confirmed a mule will carry longer then a horse foal, 13 months isn't unusual but I know we're past that mark. She lays down and rolls a lot and is constantly kicking her belly, she's more slab sided today then I've seen her before but she goes from round as a barrel to slab to round as a barrel all day long. She doesn't have a fever or show any signs that something is wrong, eats drinks poops and even manages to trot around her pasture ugh help! Vet will not induce she said baby is active and will come when it ready WHAT!!!

Also her udder is nothing to brag about but I've been assured by many thats nothing to worry about since she's a maiden she can foal without much, I actually had a maiden that foaled with no udder about 3 years ago so that's the least of my worries I suppose

Well you were right all along , as i said know one knows a mare better than its owner :)

Shes showing all the signs that she is getting close. The fact that she is eating and drinking and passing manure is great. If she was completely off her food and not passing manure, I would start to worry.

Have you got any pics for us ?

So glad you posted :)

The butt pushing is just fine, and you're right not to worry about an udder.  She'll fill at foaling I'm sure.  With what you're explaining, I think she's on the downward road, and baby should come sooner rather than much later.  You've kept good track of her, and we're excited to hear how she continues to progress.

The butt pushing is to move baby into a more comfortable position, so that's good.  Some rolling will get that little one in final position, so we're following along with you, and praying for the very best outcome!.  ;pray

Pictures would be great!
