    Miss attitude is now on cam. Her bag did shrink from this morning so we will just peek on her now and then but not seriously watch her yet. Well of course unless she does something that makes me think she might foal LOL

    Last year Patches signs were smacking her flanks with her head and kicking her belly. I do not remember her circling the stall like some mares do but those that watched last year can remind me if she did.

    We have been trying to adjust the cam because she is so much taller then the rest so Im hoping we have it right now

    Looks fine, Kay. If she hangs out in the front left corner, will we be able to see her? She looks great--more filled out than last year? Her backbone is more covered? Or am I imagining things? She's the mare you have a hard time keeping weight on despite lots of grain?

    One thing both my mares did that was so telling they were about to foal is to have frequent poops. Both had several piles in a very short time, like 1-2 minutes apart. Right afterwards--they started labor.

    No patches isnt the one so hard to keep weight on at least not until after she foals. She is MUCH bigger with this foal then last year, but she was bred to a bigger stallion then last year. But still Feature is 40" to her 46 so Im not sure why shes so big this year.

    Flirt is struggling some with her weight. Her foal is just really sucking the weight off her. We are feeding her like crazy but I am a little worried as I can barely see the outline of her ribs and I dont like seeing that. we are now feeding Flirt 3-4 times per day. Just think its odd as her weight was fine last year so I suspect maybe shes going to have her first colt. She has had 2 fillies previously :)

    Oh also for anyone that doesnt know you can right click on the picture and then go to video settings to adjust the contrast and darkness if you need to

    Kay, for some reason, I lost track of the date. lol
    Nope, not adjusting the date/time.....leaving it.
    I won't win, but that's ok.
    Now I have to go root around my room for some fat quarters. :)

    Houston we have a problem LOL. Patches bag has shrunk and Flirts is big so I may put Flirt in tonight if Patches is still smaller.

    Poor patches I was out checking her udder and the flies are biting her udder causing it to bleed :( I really wish it would cool off a bit.

    This could be one crazy mare stare :)

    We have Flirt on cam tonight :) I dont think she will foal tonight but her udder is very big and she had a tiny bit of wax so Im going keep an eye on her for awhile just in case. She was really kicking her belly earlier.

    Patches was so mad when we put her in a different stall. I think she likes being on cam LOL

    Kay, I don't know how YOU feel, but as long as I have a mare to stare at I don't care which one you have in the stall :lol: :lol: :lol: Flirt from the angle I am seeing does not look very big around....are you sure she is not teasing you? :roll: :roll: :roll: Maybe we should bet the FQ's on who foals first????? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I feel so bad for terri! I think she may hang me soon. I just dont know which one will go first and boy am I wishing I had 2 cameras LOL.

    Terri cant we just keep the contest on Patches??

    Honestly flirt is huge too. But shes always huge. I think because shes a mostly white horse you dont really see it until she lays down. Then you will be like OMG! LOL

    Be warned flirt lays flat out A LOT. If shes just laying flat but you dont see contractions shes just sleeping. I think it was Karla last year took some cam pics of her with her huge belly sticking up sleeping (if you right click you can take a snapshot of the cam)

    I better send Terri some prizes so she doesnt kill me soon :D

    The picture is not great because the cam was adjusted for Patches who is about 8" taller then flirt ughhhh
