Our first mare due to foal has started with a small bag. This can start anywhere from foaling day to about 1 month out. With her being a maiden it is still hard to tell when she will foal. We will be getting her stall ready to move her into this weekend. Normally I don't put them in the stall this early, but with her being a maiden and all this rain/snow/wind that we have had lately, I would rather see her foal in a nice, dry stall.
I have worked out how I am going to set up the foaling camera so I will be anxious to get that ready and test it out for real. I will absolutely love being able to "skype" her during the day when I am at work. Hopefull I can catch her if I believe she is beginning labor. They love to fool you though so we will just have to see how it goes.
Stay tuned-we are definitely in the home stretch now!!!
