Hi all, I am new here and just wanted some feedback about my seemingly "overdue" mare. Yes, I have read Jos's excellent article "Is my mare overdue" but I guess I am just being a worried Momma and wanted to make sure I am not overlooking anything. I have a maiden TB mare, approx 16 years old, that is on day 357 and seems quite content to stay pregnant. Her udder is firm and warm, I am able to express clear fluid from it (don't have a test kit), no waxing, she appears to have dropped and vulva is relaxed. She has faked me out a couple of evenings over the past 2 weeks by acting restless, not eating her supper, and flank watching but then settles down and no baby. She is acting quite normal and content otherwise. My 2 prior foaling experiences were right "on schedule" and I wanted to make sure I am not overlooking anything with this mare. Probably the best thing for me is a good dose of patience, and a good night's sleep!
Thanks!

Susan,
I think we all go through the same things...wondering? waiting?? assuming? hoping?...After all this then the DUHH factor kicks in and we are left with just plain waiting....and emailing each other with any changes or question so maybe read some of the prior threads and you will see that your in the same boat as all of us! Are you dates correct? maybe post some pictures so the board can comment.

Foaling Vibes being sent your way!

Thanks! I guess that is exactly what I expected and wanted to hear. Her breeding dates were May 3,4,& 5 2007. I have been reading the other threads and that is what prompted me to post. This seems like such an experienced group I wanted to get some feedback on my situation. My friend who is a vet is involved in this waiting game with me but sometimes it is nice to get a different point of view. Thanks for the vibes. I hope they make it to my mare!

My maiden shetland did the same exact thing to me. It was about a wk and 1/2 after I was able to get fluid out that sh foaled with out any of the signs she'd used to fake me out with before. So of course I missed it but all went well. foaling vibes sent your way it will hapen my mare was over due as well.

Susan, I feel for you. Wow. That's a long time. I know they can go to 370 days and still be in the norm, but I hope I don't have to wait that long and hope the same for you.

I'm starting to laugh at the signs I saw and see in my mare, 'cause they don't really seem to mean much. But you have more experience than I do. My mare has done all the tail raising, butt rubbing, leaking milk and waxing over, blah, blah, blah.

Laurie is right. If you go to the "Seeing signs your mare is about to foal," you'll see some things that will at least give you a laugh!
Hang in there and please keep us posted.
