I'm just kidding with you, giving you a ration of crap because you're always the one to start a new one! Let's start a thread about why CJ always starts a new thread! LOL
Sounds like you're getting closer, tell that mare to do GOOD. I'll meet you back here in the morning, and we'll exchange new foal pic....OK?

Hey Diana-yes, I am the thread posting queen! LOL

I'd love to meet back here with pics, but don't think I'll have any. PH 7.6 tonight. Vulva looser, but I swear she can suck it up at will!

But I want to see you new baby in the morning!

To make matters worse, my camera is acting up! Why can't it just be simple? Whine-whine! LOL

I am dying laughing!!!! (not at you)...So, my mare has been getting 3 of 4 pads on the test strips for a couple of days now, so I've been on serious foal watch...took a few moments from it to write on here, and returned to the camera to see my mare COMPLETELY FREAKING OUT in her stall. She was running around in circles, snorting, tail flagged, kept putting her nose to the ground, and snorting some more...and I immediately went into emergency mode (because I've never seen it done like this before LOL) I headed off to the barn thinking, "if she's got an emergency, there is NO WAY i'd be able to 1) catch her or 2) settle her or 3) 'fix' anything! So I start freaking out a bit not knowing how to handle a freaked out mare. Tried to calm myself a bit, thought about the 1/2 hr it would take the vet, and told myself I'll handle it the best I can. So, when I got to the barn, took a deep breath and opened the door....there was the mare...backed up SOOO FAR in the corner that her hind feet were OFF the ground, her rump was in her feeder, and her front feet were on their very tippy toes....and she was still backing up. "Wow, this is gonna be harder than I thought", I thought to myself. And as I was trying to devise a plan she started screaming and snorting some more, and there was a horrible noise that I did not recognize in all of my history in the breeding world....all the while, she's trying to climb higher up in the corner (backwards). I spoke to her thru the bars, that didn't help...entered the stall, turned on the light, that didn't help....I was petrified to reach for her halter, and then realized what the problem was. There was a HUGE bullfrog that had made it's way into her stall! LOL It was just sitting there staring at her. Then I thought, "I guess I need to get the frog outta here...that'd probably help." And I KNEW that if that frog jumped, that mare was gonna go to the moon! So I went and got the lunge whip, and (from the outside of the stall) touched the frog, to point him in the right direction....everything went to shit! The frog jumped, the mare jumped higher...when she came down, and the rump hit the feeder it made a loud noise, and now she thinks something's trying to attack her from behind. She goes slamming into the stall door, (which was not latched because I was standing on the other side of it, taunting the frog)The stall door knocks me down, horse flattens me, and runs all the way to the other end of the barn. I didn't think I'd EVER get her back in that stall! LOL

10:40pm this evening. She foaled a gorgeous chestnut colt! Everything went so well too. I saw her on the foaling camera lay down, get up, and lay down again. I knew it was time--so I woke everyone up and we ran down to the barn. By the time we got there, his front legs and his nose were already out. Within forty-five seconds of straining, he was out. It was incredibly fast. He's doing great though, I'll have pics up tomorrow
