My Iberian Warmblood maiden is now at 350 days. My other (Arab cross and multipara) mare who was breed three weeks later to an incredible Andalusian and is only 326 today looks WAY closer to foaling. I've done this before and normally I have loads of patience...but my mom is dying and I need to get to see her and there is no one but me to tend these mares. I can't leave until they foal (the little Arab mare has had problems cleaning in the past and required oxytocin) We live WAY, WAY too far out for vets to find...so I have to be here. The maiden Warmblood surrounds herself with a cloud of the worst flatulence I have every smelled. Spends a huge amount of time laying down...but otherwise..nothing. Great appetite, no fever and also...No bag, no milk, not even the beginning of jello butt.

Despite having lots of experience at this, I have turned into an over anxious mother. My imagination is running amuck. I imagine the foal has died, that she slipped it and no one noticed (this despite the fact that she is huge, was ultrasounded at 30 days and ACTS pregant) I dream about foals almost every night. A few nights ago I dreamt that Luna, the Warmblood had triplets! (God forbid!) One was weak and dying but two were up and nursing. She is a black mare breed to a double dilute cremello Lusitano. In the dream, one foal was black, one was sooty buckskin and one was a palomino and white zebra stripe with an Appaloosa butt. In the dream I was thinking, "Gee, I'd better call the stallion owner and see what kind of seman she shipped."

Anyway...I'm just venting and looking for reassurance. I haven't foaled out a maiden in 20 years...but I've attended about 200 mares. I'm not a newbie but I'm sitting at the ranch alone stewing. I figured this is a group that could really understand the anxiety and impatience. (Be assured I would never even consider inducing...but I haven't slept in days)
