View Full Version : Mare about to foal

Thanks for advice re: milk. She has been dripping milk since friday. She went down a few times Friday night and I thought she was going to foal then. But did not. The milk is dripping non-stop - her teats are full and very tight. Her rump is soft and loose. She looked like she was going to foal. She was very swollen, but that has gone down since. I guess it will just be any day now. The 345 days are not up until 2 January. So, I guess the longer the better? She is HUGE.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. Will just wait. Yes, it is the first foal. I do have a more experienced friend who will come and sit through with me.
