Hello all. This is my 1st foal in years so am not really confident about the whole process. So I have a maiden Friesian mare due on the 28th of Oct. She is booked into the vet to foal there as I do shift work and can't be up all hours when I start dayshift at 3.30am or I'm on night shift so will probably miss the birth anyway. So I am wanting to try and get her to the vet a few days before it happens. I have had a long chat to the vet and they have been fantastic and said if I'm unsure about anything let them know and they will come over and check to see if she looks ready to go. But I don't want to hassle them every 5 minutes either. So the mare still has a few weeks. The foal is still very much sitting down in her belly, it doesn't look like it has started to move up over her hips. She isn't really any softer than usual through her quarters and her vulva looks about normal. This morning though I checked her teats and they aren't full but there looked to be droplets of clear water on them and when I touched them they were hard and came off into my hand. Is this wax? Isn't it far too early for wax? Trust me if I think I need to,I will get the vet out but thought I would ask some experienced breeders on here for some advice 1st. Thanks.
