LOL cant leave her for a night.. have to make sure everything is going to be ok.. I would feel guilty if i missed a night and there was a complication! but she is progressing quite fast, so very very soon!

I agree I dont mess with them as long as they aren't having problems.. BUT if they are in labor I want to be within reach so just in case, we dont have to worry as much!! I really hate watching some of the foaling videos i have seen where people think it wise to play tuggy with baby!

Pretty soon now..Twinkie dripped for quite some time before Gunny was born.. I'm saying COLT! I just want it healthy for you... who cares about color when it comes to babies.. They are loads of cuteness just watching them grow!

Alaskan Draft: OyVey, that looks painful!!

Here's today's photos.. She is pawing a bit, and thumping her tail a bit.. so hopefully tonight.. I am thinking I might have to get their early!! who knows. I just hope she isn't a day birth mare.

She looks good :happy0203: . My mare was a 1st timer a few summers back. She didn't get a bag like that before she foaled. She also didn't show much sign. I let her stay out for one night to give her a break from the confines of her stall and thats when she foaled. We lost the foal to preditors that night.

I'm glad she is doing well and is giving more sign then mine did, makes it much easier to tell! Can't wait so see pictures!!

I am sorry bout the foal!! that is heart breaking!! I am glad miss Maya told us she was preggers when she did.. though it did put her training on hold a few weeks, we are at least able to prepare.. Daniel keeps looking at her as if she is an alien.. she has gotten so big so fast!

Well Kids, we have a BOY a pretty little bay baby boy! 43 inches at the withers, and all bay but for a HUGE white star on his head!! Born at 12:30am, had first milk at 3:00 am, and will get his IGG draw tonight!

Without further ado here are the pictures. Sorry they are fuzzy, cell photos, when my camera decided it wants to have a charged battery in a few hours I will upload more.

He got to wear his new blankie till he was dry only, and if we have a particularly wet day, or he starts to shiver in the least it goes right back on.. but otherwise he is staying warm and nursing often! Mama wore her wool and top blankets till she was dry and warm.. Of course the little bugger comes in the wettest part of the snow storm that came in last night.. neat thing, after he was born and dry, it didnt snow the rest of the night.

Enjoy!! Thank you for everyone's well wishes and assistance in the watch!!

Now Daniel however is a slight worry, he isn't eating breakfast this morning.. just staying near the pen the mare is in and keeping a close eye.. Should have seen him last night.. You would have thought him every inch the proud Papa.. Standing all proud and snorting.. Mama would give him the stink eye.. but that is about it! I will be back tonight to do the IGG draw, so I will so how he is doing.. might have to get a Vitamin B shot to encourage his apatite.. He has normal gut sounds, and is otherwise acting normal, just protective his the mare and baby!

Investigating the pen, moving around warming up under his blankie, You can see Daniel in the background being the proud horse that he is.. he hasn't left them to eat yet being on guard. This worries me some.. but I will see this evening when I go back how he is doing.

I got lucky and my camera let me get this shot this morning... Daniel standing Guard.. Baby is nursing well, Mama is eating and they both seem very content.. I spent some time this morning brushing her to get her coat cleaned and every time I hit an itchy spot she would nuzzle the baby, and groom him.. I am so proud of her, she did so very well!

he does!! and good long legs.. I wouldn't put it past him to be a bit bigger than Mama full grown!! But for now he is a happy healthy monster.. Went and did the IGG blood draw about an hour ago! That gets dropped in the morning, he was pretty good bout it, and Mama was a doll!

I have some new photos for everyone

I went out to blanket the little boy, since we got major winter storm warning.

When I left my house it was obvious the snow was coming in. But who would know it would be in heavier than it has all year, and in just 2 hours.. LOL

His blanket is a tad bit, but some creative use of duct tape and it is snug and warm for him.. the storm is supposed to last till after friday, so I wanted to make sure he was going to be safe in it..

Serving at the Milk bar!
