Tonight Maybe!

Snakey is still holding onto her foal and not really showing us any signs of foaling for this evening, BUT another mare is! Patty has had some wax on her teats today and has been restless all afternoon. Tonight might be the night. The side view picture is Patty, and then I also included a picture of the wax on her teats. Wax can be an indicator of foaling, but is not a sure sign. Some mares can wax for days before foaling, and some will wax 24 hours prior to foaling. When you look at the overall picture of things she is telling us (wax, restlessness, relaxed musculature) chances appear to be good. We will check again later this evening to see how things progress!
