Can anyone give me a window of how close to foaling she might be? Well aware there are no guarantees... just looking for a possible window. Test strips haven't revealed much change. At day 341 and bag is (has been) full taunt, no dimples. This is after hours of turn-out with her walking around a bit... any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Joanne-too funny! "Who was I to tell her no!" She's gotta be close though, right? I think your's has to be one of the longest foal watches yet! Hang in there. Can't wait to hear, "It's a..."
