I am running a contest on my Arabian mare's actual foaling date. Annie was bred last July 9 & 10. Today she is at 329-330 days gestation. Foals are normally born at 320-360 days gestation and the average gestation is 340 days.
Her teats began filling over a week ago and she is incredibly huge, ROUND!, like she swallowed a 65 cm exercise ball. She is still eating for two but she is not moving around as much. She also holds her tail out and a little to the side. Last night, she seemed very irritated, biting at her side and there was lots of little twitches all over, not just baby movements. For anyone with foaling experience, will she become less "round" as she nears delivery? Are there any other signs I should watch for, like not eating, maybe?
That's actually her belly on both sides of the photo.
Those of you who had your guess date pass by, please try again. For those of you who are still in the running, good luck! I am posting the guesses on the sideboard. Please check your vote for accuracy.
