She's looking good Holly.

Make sure that her vulva lips will still lay together tight, especially if you want to breed her again, to make sure to keep any extra fluids or other from getting into her vaginal area or all the way to her uterus.  If not, consider having the vet "re-open" the cut spot OR doing a Caslick's procedure like you might on a big horse.  You can open a Caslick's easily for breeding or foaling - if desired and to save a bit on the vet costs.  If it appears to be healing ok for now (as it does), I'd leave it alone until after she foals, then see how all the "parts" fit, after any swelling from the birth has gone down.

I've had one cut her self horribly - I was "afraid" to take pics and didn't have simple digital cameras/pics then.  Photo developers were sometimes horrified by the pics they had to develop from us, LOL!  But that mare healed fine - in time to produce a HUGE filly - and then got bred back, too.

Thank you Paula. I was very worried about that. I was shocked how deep into her vulva the cut went. Thankfully as the swelling has kept going down it looks more normal. I am concerned about it splitting open during Foaling. Hopefully all will go well and if needed I am sure my vet can help.

Quick update. Approximate day 255 or 295.
Udder feeling about the same meatiness so no huge growth. But belly is getting bigger and lower.
Her girlie bits are almost completely healed and except for a small scar tissue it looks normal. At least every thing seems to function properly.

Settling into her stall in the evening for the night. Just in case​, I will be stalling the ponies at night. Gives her time to relax and get used to the Foaling stall.
We took a lightning strike so had to order new barn cams and video converter. New cam is up still waiting on the video converter. Should be here in a few days, then we can be live again.

Updates on Katie.
Udder feels a bit meatier still. Maybe even some relaxing of the tail head area.
Vulva healing well, even some lengthening.

Poor girlie bits!! The downside is, she had an awful owwie. The upside is, you'll surely recognize any color changes!

She does seem to be developing more towards the earlier breeding date. Since we think that, she'll make us wait.....

and wait......

and.....well, you get the idea. LOL

So far she has had 2 silver smokey black fillies, 2  silver bay fillies.   I am really excited to see what she has this time. I havent tested her so not sure what her genetics are other than we know shes not homozygous for Agouti or cream. Possibly homozygous black, ( as she produced 2 black based foals bred to a chestnut) she could be homozygous silver, 4/4 silver based foals,
Legacy we know is LP/n Patrn 1 /n , bay or black. hetrozygous black, as Ive seen his red foals.

Last night Katie had some crunchy brownish  dried discharge around her vulva, so she may just be starting to loose her plug. Her tail head is relaxing, and I am starting to see a wee bit of lengthening and puffiness in her vulva. I do have her stalled and on camera at night if anyone wants to peek in. I am pretty sure we still have at least a month to go, but given she was with another stallion I think it wise to watch just in case.

Personally, I'm happy with any base color you're hoping for, but I'm praying for SPOTS!!!    ;D
