I have a question. I am new to this foaling ordeal and I am planning to watch a friend's horse foal because I have a mare due in May that I take care of and I want to know what to expect. However, she was 4 inches dialated on either Monday or Tuesday and now her udders have been full for two days now and there is still no baby. She was quirting earlier in the week but she hasn't waxed yet now that she's full. (She was also laying in her stall grunting during the full moon a couple days ago.)She is also leaking something from her vulva.

What other signs can I look for to know when she is going to foal and when do YOU think she will foal? Oh, and how far does a horse get dialated before her water breaks and she actually foals?

I don't want to alarm you but if that mare is dialated & squiting milk & something coming from her vulva I would say she's going to abort. If she's not due until May there's no way the foal would survive if it's born now.

Oh, I may have misunderstood your post. It's your friends mare that is dialated & squirting milk? Sounds like she will go any day now. Usually when the start milking it will be within a couple days but can go for several days. They seldom ever foal on a full moon but it changes again Monday so watch for it then

Yes, this is my friend's horse that I am talking about! I know it's still alive b/c I saw it moving. She is still full, as far as I know b/c I haven't been there today but it's what the friend says. She said yesterday she thought she may have been waxing. (And she was squirting milk earlier in the week not recently- not since she got full.) Really? Why do horses seldom go on a full moon? I don't even know why some people say they do anyway! LOL! I have NO clue that's why I am asking for help. Thanks, I will kep my eye out on Monday.

Has the mare foaled yet? I've always heard they don't foal on a full moon because they like it to be dark so they'll be hidden. A vet once told me they foal on the dark moon.

I would suggest two things first i would get the mare of your friends palpated to make sure the baby is in the correct position and second i would want to save the milk the mare is losing b/c
this is the mares first milk and i have seen these type of situation deplete the colostum leaving the new foal with no immune transfer. However I would have my friend get an igg done
good luck

Just to let everyone know..... sadly, the mare did lose the foal. She was on forage too long bc of the unexpected pregnancy and the placenta was too thick. The foal was found stuck in the birth canal and got brain damage and ended up dying. Very sad ending! Please everyone keep all ungelded horses, even yearlings away from mares! :*(
