    Farasi is at 304 days today and boy is she uncomfortable!
    She is in foal to Fiontar Mac Tire, a Double Dilute Perlino Connemara

    She is a maiden mare but has been massive for months. Even at 4 month along my vet and I could tell she was pregnant, at 9 months she looked like she should have been due any day. This poor mare is going to have one big baby! (She was checked for twins by my vet)

    She has had a very small yet consistent bag for almost 2 weeks now (it went down a bit yesterday) and her muscles have been slowly relaxing for over 2 weeks as well.

    She is finally losing her ultra witchy attitude towards the other horses that started a few months after being bred...though truly I think its more about her trying to be careful then not wanting to chase them :rolleyes:

    Don't worry, I'll post current pictures from my phone in a minute...

    Well I was able to find at least one picture of her on my phone without the massive belly. Not the best picture, but you get the idea:p

    Her bag has looked like this for over a month now. It stays the same, never goes down.
    Muscles are relaxed and have been for almost a month as well. No other signs yet

    Picture taken saturday night. Her 2nd night in the stall, I figured I'd start putting her in at night and seperate her from the others so that she can start to get comfortable.....no need, she loves being in her stall and own paddock apparently, haha

    This mare has become so very needy/attached to me in the last month. She's always been friendly, but now she feels the need to be right next to me at all times when im in her field, it's quite strange 20170325_183620.jpg

    20170331_194007.jpg 20170331_194139.jpg More changes tonight. I'm not sur I'd call it wax ad it wasn't grey....it was more yellow/gold and only on one side.
    Vulva doesn't seem to have relaxed much and bag isn't as big as I would expect, but she is a maiden.

    I can get quite a bit of golden liquid out...not white yet
    I can't get the other pics to load, I'll keep trying

    ok, so I checked on her again this evening. She seems happy and like her normal self.
    I checked her nipples again and she had another dried yellow wax like glob on her other nipple this time. I gently rolled it off (it did not pull, just gently fell off) and right after it followed a drop of blood?? I'm sure I'm just over reacting, but this really concerns me.

    She seems totally normal and her bag or nipples are not sore in the least. Has anyone ever seen this?
