Pp No Chip Matks (Barn Name Faline) Due Jan 2

Recommended Posts

No online cam but I will update here for any one interested. this is my SPB mare Faline (Lucky Diamond Chip is her sire) She was officially at day 340 on January 2 but last time she foaled at day 350 so I was kind of expecting the same this time around, she also does not bag up till basically the day of foaling and looks today just like she did 7 days before she foaled last time. Here's a couple photos of her.

Sire is my stallion Coosas Calico Kid, so far he's passed the dun factor on every time so odds are foal will be bay dun, red dun or grullo with 50% chance of Tobiano

We're at day 348 and half way bagged up, supposed to be super cold (1 Farenheit brrrr....) for the next 2 days so now I'm hoping she waits till Friday when it warms back up to above freezing. At least if she does go our barn is insulated and fairly warm so they'll be fine that way, I just dont really want to be running from house in pj's in middle of night when it's that cold. Will update again if things change.

Day 349 today and no change, it's -1 out side so everyone is staying in today, Hoping she waits now till it warms up a bit in a day or so.

still holding in there, she's now 5 days longer than she was last time, been doing butt itching, tail swishing and getting cranky so hopefully not too much longer

Still hanging in there, bagged but no wax (but last time she didn't wax at all) backside very droopy, watching her on camera every night I'm getting sleep deprived.

Believe it or not she's still in one piece, full of milk and looks like she should drop any min but hasnt, I've checked and rechecked my books and the only 2 days she was bred was last January 25/26, she never showed cycling again and then our stallion was not put out till mid May for summer pasture with the herd, as big as she is there's no way she could last till april if she bred in may, plus she wouldnt be bagged full and soft at tail etc... foal is moving and kicks so I know it's doing fine, mare is eating and doing well too just huge. Record is 447 days maybe we're in the running to beat that!! lol will have pics online once she does foal. This is a new one for me to have one go this long but I've had people tell me of their mares that went a full year and year + so we're not alone.

Thanks for the update. I can't believe she hasn't gone yet. The pic is adorable of her and the girl. I think there was a mare here on HC one year that went over a year and then had a nice colt. Maybe your mare is just cooking you up something special. Although by the time she foals, you will have a yearling instead of a weanling.
