Hi all, I have a maiden mare at 325days. Her bag is I'd say half to 3/4's full.. and three weeks ago she had her booster jab and (luckily whilst vet was here)she was showing her mucous plug. Her hind end is getting softer and softer! Her vulva looks relaxed one day and not so much the next... driving me crazzy!! However shes not showing any signs of waxing up yet? Any other experiences etc would be highly appreciated!!

Best to try to calm down or you will just make yourself crazy. I know from experience. I had a maiden mare go to 363 days this spring and for about the last month, I kept thinking "maybe tonight???" I can feel your frustration, and the softening of the rear sounds good, but I thought so myself for weeks. So hang in there and crazy as it may seem, try to enjoy the anticipation.

Hey I also had a very stressfull maiden mare experience recently! she was showing all the typicle signs for some time, her belly dropped, her vulva was up and down as to being loose, her croup was soft and dropped for several weeks before!she never totally bagged up especially compared to brood mares, she then spent a few weeks dancing on her feet and general discomfort! then on d day she didnt show any changes we put her into her stable about 3pm, she gushed milk the second she was in...she didnt paw the ground wander roll nothing :-/ she literally walked once around the stable as she walked away from he camera her waters broke she layed down and when we ran up to the stall, her bag was already showing and she delivered at 5pm in broad daylight :-) i totally understand your stress but as i discovered maiden mares dont tend to be "typical" when it comes to giving anything away.....have you tried testing her milk with a testing kit as that was our only real indicator that she was imminant? hope your not hanging around getting stressed and tired for too long xx
