    Hi everyone. This is Maple. She is 12yo and 12.2hh. She was a rescue from a drought affected area here in Australia. She came to me in foal. Can't be sure of dates as they had just let her run with their coloured stallion. Due soonish. Has been confirmed in foal and healthy by vet.

    Anyway I love Maple to bits. She will be staying with us forever.

    Two days ago she went from having a smallish bag to bagging up overnight and hasn't gone down but not entirely full yet. She is a maiden so will be a guessing game. She has no tone left in her rump and it is jelly. Her tailbone is prominent and she has dropped quite a bit. She was quite sweaty on her neck under arms and flanks today but it was also a hot day. 20181105_094154.jpg 20181105_095124.jpg IMG_5853.jpg 20181104_143114.jpg 20181104_141617.jpg

    Here are some pictures of Maple from the last few days

    Hi. She has been with us almost 3 months now. She was scared when she first came here but I have gotten quite a bond with her now

    Thanks everyone. I really don't mind whether it's a filly or Colt just that it's healthy. Although I wouldn't mind some bling like mum has

    I have always liked the ladies, even chestnut mares :love:, but my foals have come out just about 50/50 colt/filly. I find the colts to be a bit of a pain in the butt....Healthy is definitely what you want though!! They are all fun!

    So today Maple started to lay down and get up over and over also biting at her stomach and walking in circles. She has calmed down at the moment we havr ducked out to get food and will check on her again shortly.
