    Rules for Mare Stare Fat Quarters.......

    One guess per person. Once you post your date/time, you CANNOT change it.

    All date/times are EASTERN STANDARD TIME

    Poll will close Friday June 26 @ 10pm EST

    4 fat quarters per person. Fat quarters should be of quality fabric. They do not need to be washed. They will be of the chooser of the giver, BUT, the giver MAY contact the winner for color/design idea.

    Here is how the date/time works....
    If mare foals at 2:00pm and you guess 1:58pm, you lose. But, if you guessed 2:02pm, you would win.
    If the mare goes PAST your date/time, you lose.
    The winner is the next person who is closest to the time of foaling, even if the next person's guess is the next day.
    **example**--mare foals at 2:00pm Wed, the next date/time is 10:00am Thursday....the person who made that Thursday guess would win.

    This is supposed to be fun. Let's make this fun and not stressful!

    Star will be watched closely starting July 1, but IS NOT due until July 6.

    If you have any questions, please PM me......let's have fun!

    ok, since most of you are wanting to see what the rest of us are doing, I predict :

    JULY 8th at 6:57pm!

    I have been calculating this for some time now and I can assure you that it is an educated guess!

    Thanks, Terri. So now I know it's ActiveX I need to download. And, no Ma'am, I will be the lucky recipient of the fat quarters! **Bwahahaha....(and eerie organ music in the background)**

    Because I am thick, and haven't taken part in a poll before, everyone who predicts will send in 4 fat quarters? And the winner with the nearest time to actual foaling (after the event) gets all the fat quarters? I like the sound of that.

    Yup that's it - and the more of us in the more fats the winner gets! :D

    Since we had "such" issues with Patches, the reining Prima Donna
    of the barn, I want a little more information before I put my guess in
    the hat.

    Kay, when did Star foal the last time? How many days? Was she
    early or late? What time of the day? How many times has she
    foaled? (like does she foal during the day or late at night, etc.


    (Terri--This isn't stressful but it is fun to me anyway.I don't think
    anyone is stressin')

    One thing we have learned
    She'll come when she comes!
    If she ain't here when the sun comes up, she will be there in the morning.
    She'll becoming round the mountain when she comes ...
    We can handle it!

    Joan....Kay said that Star went pretty much on time and foaled during the day last year. That was pretty much ALL the info she gave.

    This is what Kay says......Since we never got to watch Star on cam last year (she foaled without warning during the day) this way we can get to know how she acts in the stall and what is her normal

    That's pretty much ALL the info she has on this mare. So, make your prediction from that. And as Omak says....she'll foal when she foals.

    Anyone can join as long as they are willing to sacrifice 4 fat quarters.

    No trying to stack the deck, Joan! :twisted:

    Thanks for the information. I just want to make a calculated guess and hope that someone actually "wins" this time. (not like Patches who was waiting for the 4th of July. :lol: )

    I guess July 7 9:32 p.m.
