Hi Mac_e_dee

that can happen to some mares a couple of weeks before she is due, what does her teats look like are the pointing outward or down, is she soft around her rump, there are a few tell tale signs as to when she will foal, is this your first foal

As Giggles said, but aren't you in touch with a Vet. This sounds like a first for you and you would be ill-advised to tackle it on your lonesome. Talk to you Vet or get an experienced friend to come as 'babysitter'. P

is the mare dripping milk (5 minutes to 5 days!)or just starting to fill the bag (5 days to 5 weeks!)?
