Annie update

There's still no foal! However, Annie looks like she's swallowed a 65 cm exercise ball! LOL. Her belly is so droopy and round! She is still ravenous although I am feeding her a high protein grain mix and hay three times a day. Please visit Lisa for more photos of Annie. Anyone who posted a guess that has passed, please feel free to reguess. She is at 325 days gestation today. Average gestation is at 340 days, however 320-360 is normal.

I will be giving a "surprise" prize to the winner!

She looks like she is putting it all into baby , my girls are acting the same , a little more affectionate and wanting to eat lots . Jazz is strting to back off the feed a little just the last couple days so we will see.
Good luck ! Pretty Mare, by the way

LOL, she is so big! Way bigger than our two girls ever got! Is this Annie's first foaling? Sahara didn't even have an udder before she foaled - but Arwen's was 3/4 full. It really looks like it could be any day now, from the size of her belly. Does she have a lot of energy?

Don't you feel so sorry for them when they get at the last stages? You know how miserable it must feel. Here's wishing that she waits till you are around to have that foal. (I'm visiting from Laughing Orca Ranch)

Poor Annie..if she thinks that everytime she turns around, there is a camera pointing at her..just wait til that baby gets here! But then she'll be the proud mama.

I kind of want to change her to the 15th, but unless her bag starts to really fill out, I will stick with the 24th. Poor little thing! I bet she has a long legged colt in there. :)

Poor Annie, she must feel miserable. I'm gonna guess the 22nd of June!

She is getting so big now. I think I guessed June 14th, so I am safe. Or was it June 12th? Oh, anyway, I can't wait!!
