    So my mare Bailey is due around March 25th, so we are on the look out! Once she starts showing signs she will be moved to my repro vets barn to foal out.

    Bailey (Ima Rockin Doc olena) was bred to Shady Lil starlight on April 17th. Everything is wonderful with Bailey, she is just a boat. I don' have my foaling stall set up yet, so thats why she is headed out the vets to foal out lol.

    We are at 283 days!!! We are getting close!
    Now that I have my kids on my property, I'll be able to take better pics!! But here are the parents!

    Just thought I'd add some cute pictures from today.
    It was nice and sunny out so the blankets were taken off today, and it started snowing again so I had to run out and throw blankets back on.
    Just so people don'
    Have a fit, troubles halter is only on when I'm taking or putting on the blankets 20180222_115249.jpg 20180222_115235.jpg

    @Alsosusieq2
    Thank you! she's quite funny, you can tell she is uncomfortable somewhat, she spends a lot of the time sleeping, and just hanging out. She went through a phase before I finally moved her home (she was being boarded until 2 weeks ago because I just bought a house) where she wasn't eating her grain really, but that has resolved, she eatys great, and has no trouble running my colt Trouble off if he is being a nuisance.

    She hasn't shown anymore signs yet that shes even close. No bag development, no muscles softening, So I think she will probably go closer to the march 25th mark as planned.

    Ugh. Yesterday Bailey had me worried that she was going to foal any second! So I started getting my temp. Foaling stall all sorts of ready!
    Today she was running around like a psycho so we are a bit out yet.

    She is at 329 days today.
    Her bag is moderately full, and you can tell she is pretty uncomfortable for the most part.
    I will be getting a camera set up tomorrow, and she will start to spend the night in my foaling stall.

    We are slowly getting closer. Her bag is staying full, and her vulva has elongated. I gave her a good brushing today and braided her tail. She was being so loving, it was great! 20180311_155141.jpg 20180311_155137.jpg
