I've only had one, but she looks pretty near to me. Her teats are kind of far apart, which I think is a good sign. I would suggest you go onto some of the threads and check out some other pictures and comments.

What does her vulva look like? My horse got very loose two days before foaling. Sending good foaling vibes your way.

She is gorgeous!

Is she AQH? i would love one of those but over here they cost more than the equivilent of $6000. She looks further along than my mare, but i too have no clue when my mare is due, i dont even know the months never mind around which date! LOL!

Gosh she is pretty Terry (even prego with a fly mask on!), I just love all your PREs, you are so lucky to have them :-)

She looks like she is nearing foaling, maybe a week or two out still though. So, I think the May 23rd date is probably correct :-)

She looks Pretty close to me. Her udders have some growing to do though but that can happen overnight. She definetly is a beautiful mare!!

I've also got a mare that I dont know her due date. One minute the origonal owner says june the next he dont know. My mare as of yesterday starting waxing over and dripping milk. shes really relaxed in her hind end her udders are so full there tight. Just a couple days ago the nipples were pointing toward each other and as of yesterday there poining straight down. So I'm guessing shes close and he's just wrong on his due date. This will be my second baby, The first one died at birth so I'm really hoping this one is a healthy foal.

GOOD LUCK TERRY, MAYBE WE WILL HAVE A BABY THE SAME DAY..

Terry,
Hate to tell you but she might look like this for the next month or so. Or she might go tonight. They are so darn aggravating.
I would probably just lose my mind if I didn't know the bred dates on my mares. I'm such a basket case anyway at foaling time. Not knowing the exact dates ----- AAARRRRGHHH!!!! They would probably have to lock me up in the loony bin until it was all over with.

yesterday started to test Viuda's milk...I got 1+ squares. Looks like she is slowly moving towards her time. I like the way she is doing.....slow, noticeable changes...the milk test gives me confidence I am not over looking something under my nose. I will keep making posts this week and next...or until.....

Terry, she looks good, but doesn't look close. I'd say 3 weeks or so. Mine usually test at 2 squares on the milk test strip for about that long...sometimes longer. When she hits 2 + part of the third, usually a few days
Good luck with the posse!
