I know everyone gets tired of me repeating "there's no such thing as a due date" during the foaling season - usually followed by "the normal average gestational duration is anywhere between 320 and 370 days, and 340/341 is not a 'due date'", so I've decided it would be interesting and perhaps useful to demonstrate that with hard data... And you can help! :-)

I've added a poll to the bottom of the article on the site that's entitled "Is my mare overdue? (follow that link), and have added some data already obtained from another source to get it going (thanks "Oldenburg Mom"! :-)).

So - please... go over to the article and add your foal's "cooking time"! I think this may prove to be a good sedative for some expectant parents if they can see what a huge variation there actually is when a lot of horses are involved in the statistics!

The full URL, in case you would like to post it elsewhere is:

http://www.equine-reproduction.com/articles/overdue.shtml

That has the explanatory article there too (the questionnaire is at the bottom - click the link under the questionnaire to view the results if you don't want to add data, or add the data and then click the link to view the results!)

Thanks! :-)

Jos,
I have a question. Is it set up so I can do it three times for all three foals I have had or can I only "vote" once.

Thanks

You should (as long as I got it right! :-)) be able to enter multiple foals - I figured lots of people have more than one foal per year, and the more data the better!

Hey Jos, got the info entered and read the link to the Impending Foaling signs too...
I think it should be noted as well, that even though certain signals point to "within 24 hrs" even THAT is not set in stone. I had a mare who turned all 4 of the strips on the milk test strips in less than 6 seconds (typically indicated mare will foal within next 12 to 24 hrs) and she went 4 days until foaling. While it's pretty unusual, I guess it's the norm for her.
