Hello, good morning!
We have a maiden mare, due any time now and I am getting worried. When I took her out of the stall this morning to go out she was limping on her rear left leg, thought "now what?!" Hubby said she was laying on that side last night when he checked on her throughout the night. Put her out with other broodmare who has her foal with her to figure out what I was going to do. They did their morning ritual of chase, and soon she wasn't limping. (maybe she was stiff or her leg asleep from laying on it?) Her bag is huge and extremely HARD, she seems to have had some leakage down her legs where it has dripped something from somewhere and then dried. She has had some wax off and on for about a week. Gets some, knocks it off walking, laying etc. I did search and read some of the posts and photos. I think she is getting a "pointy" v shape to her belly. She is out eating grass now and looking fairly normal and I am a WRECK! She doesn't seem to be in any distress, I am. LOL!! I may be getting paranoid, pretty sure I am.... How long would you wait before taking to vet?
If there was something wrong with the foal she would be showing some signs of distress wouldn't she? Vet had said at 90 days it felt like a big foal I can only imagine what its like now and am getting worried she will have a hard time.

So, recap, we have huge hard bag, wax off n on, belly looks to be getting "v'ed" (she used to be wide load) leakage down legs, now dried, I don't see anything leaking or fluid on her vulva area,
Any thoughts on how long we might have left?

Thanks to everyone for listening to me ramble and any thoughts,
Appreciate it!!!
Take care all,
Angela

Why don't you buy a milk testing kit and it will tell you when the big day is?
