I have a horse named Lea, shes a bay throughbred mare. And is pregnant, her due date was Friday. Since monday she has been showing signs of impending labor (ie has milk, her belly shrunk- which happens when it moves into the birth canal..). Horses have complete control over the first stage of labor -meaning they can stop it during that time if they choose to. Which she has been doing and driving us all crazy waiting. She goes into labor again with contractions and starts sweating, urinating frequently, makign tons of noise , pacing, getting up and down frequently, walking around with her tail in the air, sometimes she seems to be trying to push, and then she stops. Its incredibly irritating lol. Never again, I cant take the waiting, it makes it all the more worse that they can stop the labor. The vet says as long as shes eating and drinking shes fine, and that she will have it when shes good and ready. (which i hope will be soon!) He also said that horses have a low pain tolerance and so thats why she causes such a fuss during contractions. Anyone else happen to be waiting for the same thing? If the foal is a filly I think it was agreed the name will be Jasmyn and a colt Jerico. Atleast I think those are the names they finally settled on.. I also have eggs due to hatch on Tueday and Friday..
