Hello everyone. I have a question I hope someone can answer for me. When should I be able to see the baby kicking? My mom and I were looking at Annie the other night and my mom swore she saw baby kick. She is a nurse and sees a lot of pregnant girls and she was convinced that was what she saw. Oh well just wondering.

How far along is your mare? I think the earliest I ever saw a kick was about 7 1/2 months - 8 months along. It is very noticable and you can't mistake it. It looks like their belly is jumping. Really cool when it happens.

Nancy, glad you brought this up 'cause I was about to.
Believe it or not, Grace is a few days shy of 7 months, and I can feel AND see the foal kicking!
While she eats, I lean against her and tuck my arm under her belly....and it's just rumbling around in there . Felt it first last week.

My mare is about 7 1/2 months and I felt the foal move over the weekend. I would say feeling it is more reliable than looking for it. Just looking at my mare breathe, there is a lot of movement back there that could be confused with foal movement. I press my hand firmly in front and to one side of the udder to feel for the movement. Make sure first that your mare has no objections to your feeling around down there. This is really only the second foal I have felt this way simply due to the fact that this is only the second foal I have been around for the entire pregnancy, but that is what seems to work for me.
