    Thanks Lena, Its funny you say that i was just talking about doing this........ i wormed her 4wks before her due "date" as per vet advise, but now im not sure when to do her again? was going to ring (aka annoy again) the vet and ask him.

    just wish she would pop already! lol

    looking at the pics........... whats your thoughts? *#):p
  2. We always worm mares that are due within a week prior (that's why I think it is just the right time for wormimg your mare) hehehe*#) Whats her milk is like? Clear or whitish?

    I've followed this thread and must have missed the bit where anyone called this pregnancy a phantom ???? ';'
    TJbear had already stated the pregnancy was confirmed with a blood test *#)

    Can you brush her belly and work further back and start by "accidently" touching them. My mare (not in foal! but they still need cleaning between them apparently - first time mare owner here!) cow kicks if you go straight for them but if it's a casual "oops, sorry didn't mean to touch you there" she's ok. I imagine they must be tender though!

    Ok so........ How soon after they go flat on the side of the tummy?? She's very flat on the side, low, vulva seems more loose and tail muscles are more pronounced.

    Have you tried the broom handle with sheepskin tied on the bottom of it to help get near her boobies to massage them, we do this with a few mares who are touchy in that area, then we can slowly go with the hands, it certainly helps if you have to help get the foaly onto the milkbar with a fussy mare.

    Good luck:)
  12. You'll have to work on that TJbear. Little bit at a time, don't let her win, she will give in.:}

    So .... Still no foal :( had a vet visit yesterday to make sure all was ok. We are all now thinking maybe she fell preg in her next cycle, makes her due around Monday?!

    So it will happen I guess lol

    I hate not knowing dates but her and bub are very healthy! That's the main thing.

    Her signs are - tummy dropping more each day (might touch the ground at this point lol) yesterday and today she is VERY grumpy, she refuses to even get a pat! Udder is still the same (over 3 weeks like that now), vulva seems more loose, tail is higher more often, and tail muscles are very squishy.

    Pics tonight ( they are on my phone)
