Any suggestion will be appreciated. My mare, who is extremely large at 250 days. This morning, she was off her feed, acting like she wanted to eat, but only taking a bite now & then. She was pacing, drinking a lot of water and rubbing her rearend. I put my ear to her and there were plenty of gut sounds and she pooped while I was in the barn. The foal is extremely active. I plan on calling my vet today, but I'm wondering has anyone else seen this behavior and could it be just that the foal is so active it's bothering her?

I have a mare that's due the end of March, and about 3-4 days ago she started to seem pretty restless; not eating much, pacing the fencline, calling the geldings (she took quite a shine to one of them), and acting sort of cranky. I think that sometimes mares just get restless towards the end. She's settled in really well now,(we only bought her 1 1/2 weeks ago) but I think that she may have just had that nearly due cranky thing goin' on. She was vet checked after transport and is carrying great. :D

Your mare may be preparing to postion the foal into the birth canal. She might lay down and roll untill it turns. This can mimic a colic. Keep watch, it should pass.
I have had a mare that rubbed her rear against a panel fence while the babies legs were coming out. I had to move her away, for fear of her getting the baby's legs caught. It only happened with that one mare, but it did make me aware of what can happen. Having a mare foal can be one of the most wonderful experiences, but also stressfull!!
