Hello, just wondering how soon your mares udders start to change prior to foaling? My only mare to go by starts making her udder over 2 months in advance. My other mare who is a maiden is 288 days and has no change at all, (other than a massive stomach) is this normal? I understand that most mares bag up only a couple of weeks before delivery but when do they start to change? I think I am probably just worrying over nothing here but curious all the same.

I had one last year that only started changing about a week and a half before foaling....I was beginning to think she wasn't bred. She wasn't maiden either!! Justcrazy!! haha!

My maiden mare due March 5 has been building a bag for the last two weeks...It is about 20% full at this point,,,she is at 320 days today...I check her over every day now and plan to put her in the foaling stall for the night starting next week. Pictures coming soon

Oh good, so I still have a few weeks before I even need to think about it! I knew I was over-reacting but Rosie bags up really early(I was panicing about that last year!), she's not due until after Amber and she's already started. I'm not worried about Rosie though, she did this last time and foaled dot on time with no probs. Amber is normally a strange mare anyway, I am just hoping she doesn't carry too late, she already looks like a house on stilts! I saw Amber's foal kicking for the first time yesterday which always puts my mind at ease so a little more relaxed now!
