NO BABIES yet.........i have 2 due in 2010 between end of March and April.

ALSo brought my hubby unlces mare to the vet for him (HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT HORSES) and found out his 2 year old filly (he bought about 4 months ago) is about to have a baby .....between feb and april. SHe was malnorished when he got her (now she is FAT) so vet cant tell if the baby is just stunted in growth and due in sooner or if its on track and due in March....so we will see

GREAT another one for me to watch...thank god she in only 2 miles away.

K so I brought Wendy to the vet last week and he said the baby is SUPER big and active he said since the baby is so big she could have it earlier so he said I could start watching around the mid of march !!!

EDITING TO SAY I messed up on counting days....lol he said 30 days before her due date....so

So here she is

229 Days !

I hope your vet is VERY wrong. Foals born before 300 days have a very low chance of survival. Personally I don't think she is all that big....baby is sitting sideways thats all. ITs a colt from the sounds of it IMHO. :happy0203: Hope she goes at the end of March for your sake.

Go back and take a look at some of the mares from last year and what to look for...Stars mare had the longest formation of an udder I think... Usually its 2 to 6 weeks before they give birth..Stars mare I think started 8 weeks early...Mares are fakers and teasers! They can even fool a vet...

He just said she could go 30 before her due date and have no problemsI got my counting al mixed up he said 30 days before her due date............She will be EXACTLY 300 days on March 10th so...

and yea if you just see that side you would think its laying to one side but its just as big on the other side also we have another mare that we bred 10 days after wendy and wendy is much bigger than her. She really dont look as big in the pics as she really is she is a BIG mare 15.3 -16 hands and big boned. She had two babys before I got her and it tore her pretty bad her previous owners said both her babys were really big at birth. I think she will go full term though I am thinking around March 30th.....around 320 days.

Wow. You're sure she took the date you think? She was exposed to the stud before? Man, our mare took two days earlier than yours...she looks tiny compared to your mare!

Here's our girl at 7.5 months.

I don't know ladies, I see the same size bellies [ROTFL] One is just shorter backed then the other, which would make the foal less likely to stretch out. When the time comes I think it will be a horses race to see who goes first.. 4 x 4's foal probably has longer legs and it stretching momma out more.

When Deb was pregnant, at about 8 months she looked HUGE! Angel was sitting sideways and pretty active...by 9.5 months she moved again and Deb looked like she sluffed the foal [shocked] I even looked all over..No movement, just a gassy mare. I was worried...by 10 months baby started to move again..but not as active..by 10.5 months poor Deb looked like she was having twins...I thought for sure she would go early...she ended up going 357 days !!!! So hang in their girls....mares stares can be frustrating! [ROTFL]
