I would like to get away for a day or two and thought I'd have plenty of time, since my mare is not due until May27th. So I'm thinking I'm good until about the 14th of May. But then someone (I think it was Tim-sorry, not sure) said that they had a mare deliver THIRTY DAYS-yes, 30, ahead of schedule. Fortunately, the mare and foal were fine.

But, does that mean I have less than, what? About three weeks, to go anywhere if I want to be certain to be here when she delivers? Of course, I hate to leave her anyway-wish I could bring her along. I really love this horse, eventhough all she cares about me is the carrots and grain I bring her!

It varies from mare to mare. You will have to make the call when you are ready to go. Has her habits changed, body changes...etc. I have a friend who calls me a couple of days before she goes anywhere overnight to get my opinion. Last year she cancelled her trip and had a foal on the night she would have left! She does still go sometimes, but I get paid well to mare sit. If you have some one you really trust that is the way to go.

Yeah, kind of what I was thinking. Means I'd better go within a week or so, if I go at all. I know after baby is born, I'll be home for at least a few months. Then the work Really begins!! But hey, what could be sweeter in life than a healthy mare and foal? And I am the only one qualified (and that is stretching the truth) at the moment to care for them. Geezzzz-but hey, I can poor a drink when it is all over, lay by the fireplace and pretend I'm on a beach somewhere!

Anyway, thanks.
