I am just curious where my mare compares to others with this. Last pregnancy, I could feel some foal movement and see some, but not until the very end of her pregnancy. This go round, the baby has been really kicking and stretching for at least 2 weeks already. She has nearly 6 weeks left and this baby is all over the place. I have posted a video showing the movement - this is about average, but sometimes it is extreme. Any feedback would be appreciated. I am not worried, just curious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0pSa67KCH4
I was actually wondering a similar thing. Our last foal I thought had more movement than this time. When Should we see the foal move?? Our mare is at 260 days and I have only see what seems like muscle contractions in the flank area. Can't remember and I didn't write it down
I only noticed movement the last month and a half. You foal looks like it is getting into place. His feet are at the bottom. You will be able to tell she is going to foal when the foal kicks here in the butt flanks! I watched my unborn foal kick her mama's butt from the inside! Her water broke less than an hour later. Remember, foal decide which day to be born, mom's decide which hour. (Usually when you are inside eating dinner)
