That is great. She can now enjoy her privacy and not even now that you are watching plus you get to stay warm and comfy. It is so much easier to just roll over and check the monitor rather than having to get up and go out.

Last night was definitely easier ! It's actually quite cute to watch them on the camera <3  she is still around the same as yesterday. It's chilly here today! Went from 90 degrees F two days ago to 43 F today! Silly weather .

You can't tell from the picture very well, but sugars udders are really firm now. No waxing but can easily get a ton of milk out if I wanted.  Also she has red stripes like the second picture all over in there (started this morning) is that normal? My mares have always just gotten bright red but never looked like vessels like that.

I dont think you will be waiting much longer, and now that she has started to change colour inside the Vulva, Id be watching her like a hawk.

Best wishes for a safe foaling , which Im sure will happen for you on the weekend as I have a crappy internet connection at home and every monday when i get back to work, the big event seems to have happened.

So if Im not around, Bestest of wishes to you for a safe foaling  ;pray

Watching is the key!  She's moving ahead nicely, so although it seems forever, it won't be.  And trust me, you're going to forget how tired you are, once that little one arrives safely!!

I stayed up all night, still nothing! She's not maiden but I bought her pregnant so it's my first time foaling with her. Her old owner had 5 foal out of her and told me that normally sugar goes through all her progressions really fast and normally only bags up for a day or two and has the foal and is sneaky about it . Apparently she wants her new owner to have to wait longer haha I have been keeping a log of every change on every day incase I breed her again. That way I know what to expect and when next time :)

Her belly disappeared, everytime I go out she shows a bit more progression. So hopefully one day soon! My original guess for her foaling date, that I picked the day after we bought her, was June 15th . Maybe she's holding him/her in so I can win the date guessing game haha

Why not?  I'm hoping maybe that my Misty is still pregnant, and just holding out for a repeat performance of her last foaling which occurred on Father's Day.    If she is indeed still pregnant, I'll take a healthy foal anytime.

Yes, healthy foals is what we're all after!!  And remember, you'll have a great resource for next time, by looking at the pictures you've posted here.

So, some day...............when she foals..............we'll know for the future!!   :o
