I believe its normal for pregnant mares to get "cow patties" before giving birth. Maybe it means she is closer?

Sorry I am no help. I am new to Allie's little watch but she is a beautiful mare and I hope you get to get pictures of her giving birth.

I hope the storm lost some of it's severity before it got to you. I would have slept through it too, if it hadn't been during the day!

The soft stools could be from her diet or she could be really close! Just keep us updated and we need some pics of your girl!

I feel bad posting pics of her because no matter how long I brush her she is just so dirty that only a bath will help. I'm not sure how she is with water so I don't want to get her all worked up a week before she's due. That and I'm a little ashamed that she's lost so much weight on her ribs. I know she's not that bad, but still.. she's had food shoved in front of her, but I still can't get it back on her. Dang baby.

I'll take pics tonight, weather and light permitting.

LOL... I did post pics of her feet on the hoof forum. [ROTFL]

Don't worry, Spiffy needs a bath in such a bad way and I really can't give her one. For one I'd have to wash her in the barnlot, which is a mud pit right now, and for two I have to wait till the rain stops coming my way! We don't mind muddy or dirty horse pics, just pics so we can help you see any differences in her! We will hold nothing against you as we know you are doing your best!

OK, so I just decided not to even try and brush her tonight.. she wasn't that bad. Please don't report me. :happy0203:

Here's the greeting from the hay pile.. mom, do I get my grain now?

She's not skinny, she looks awesome. Keep in mind she'll look like she's lost weight, when she starts to drop, it pulls down, so it makes a mare look skinny with a large belly.

She looks great.

She's not that dirty or skinny looking! If you wanna see a dirty horse, let me go take a pic of Tawnie the Super Mutt! hehehe!

I agree that when she gets closer the baby will pull down and make her look rangey, so don't worry too much she'll get her figure back! Just keep us updated.

Allie look a little different to me at the moment. She looks a little less relaxed, and her belly doesn't look as round? Her bag is still developing though. Maybe I'm just getting used to her preggers state. She definitely has less tail control and is having a heck of a time getting it out of the way for #2. I'll do pics tonight as I have to run to work.

Appy4life,

Looks like you can have the name"Striker" if you want it! [Jump] They are going to name the other foal Lightning. Hope your girl goes when it warms up a bit. Of course 60 degrees sounds rather warm to me right now. Its snowing like crazy here and already have 2 inches on the ground.

I think she looks good! [Huggy]

thanks everyone.. still no real change from yesterday.. other than her poo has gotten soft again :confused0024: and there's a lot of it (she's also getting a ton of food)

I'm feeling better about how she looks now, thanks! I think after she was getting more alfalfa that helped too. Now if we could just produce a baby. I have a wedding shower in MI this Sunday that I'm expected at so she needs to foal early this week for my travel plans!

Still no real changes for today. Her bag may be a little more filled up, but :confused0024: maybe not.

Hubby and I think she's got about a week left, but she could surprise us. At this point we're actually making plans to stay here in Indiana for the weekend instead of going to Michigan. I feel bad, but I did warn the family that this could happen.

Well, Allie is still pregnant, and she definitely has some days to go. Her bag is still getting fuller, but her teats are still small. I ended up french braiding her tail last night as she just can't get her tail out of the way anymore. The weather is at least turning nice, but we still have rain. I'll try and do pics tonight.

Yeah, I second the front end shot. Can't see much from the side shot you took. She does have a purdy head though!

I'll take the front shot tomorrow.. I think the worst of her head shots got loaded.. I had some nicer ones, but PB didn't want to cooperate.. so that's what I had. It is still pretty, but not the most complimentary angle.. Didn't you see the last pic.. she was saying always shoot from my right side... my right side you idiot owner!

OK, I took some pics this morning.. I didn't get a front shot as hubby gave her her grain while I was taking care of Misty, so I missed that opportunity. Anyway.. here are some unflattering shots of her while she's dirty.

For reference.. this is what she looked like in the fall.

The baby was kicking this morning.. it's good to see him moving around as it's been a couple days.
