    Kay did tell her that some of us were watching Precious too!

    Yeah, I'm watching Precious too. Right now she's backed up to the wall holding that foal in!! Poor thing really does look like she's going to burst! Maybe she's cooking twins in there! :shock:

    Precious is not really pregnant! This has got to be a joke being played on us! Her feed dish was empty and she looks so bored!

    And even though Kay says they really don't eat all that much, she sure got through that block of hay fast enough! I think she really is fat!!! She doesn't even seem uncomfortable!

    Kay, what would you have done if one of your mares went that long? ROFL

    Kay's cam is down, so I checked on Precious too. She is soooo ROUND! Barely any backbone showing, not like "our" girls got when the foals dropped. They do have her tail wrapped or plaited now, and she's just waddling around the stall....

    Yeah, I've been doing Mare Stare on Precious now. I even put the laptop next to the bed when I sleep, so I can roll over and open an eyeball and see if there's any progress before I go back to sleep.

    Terri, this is all your fault! I'm addicted!!!

    A couple of times Precious would lie down to sleep, then roll over. I'll bet that alarm was going off all over! LOL

    Kay, does it make a noise in the stall that the horse can hear, or only at the other end?

    I had a dream that she went into labor and I called the number and the person said "Who is this?" and I said "One of Kay Baxters Mare Stare Group"!!!

    Im not sure if the mare can hear it or not?? I imagine they would at least hear a buzzing sound while the alarm goes off in the house. Poor Joanne I know she got a lot of calls the night before last as people were sure she was in labor. I have to wonder when a mare goes this far over if the date was right. Sometimes us breeders screw them up LOL (as you all know)

    I am having so much trouble with my stupid cam. I gave up yesterday. Harley is doing much better!!! But he really wants to play with Rumor. Im going to let him out of the pen for a bit today.

    Maybe I can talk Kyle into moving the cam today LOL

    Poor Joanne! I'm sure she's ready to pull her hair out. I've been reading the posts on the forum and everyone wants Precious to foal. lol
    Precious is just laying there like a slug.
    But, I do think that within the next 12 hours she's going to have a beautiful filly. Well...that's MY prediction! But, what do I know?

    I don't know, I've been watching her for a couple of days now, and haven't seen anything I thought was significant. Although when she does lie down to sleep, before she gets up she rolls almost completely over a couple of times. I think it's just that she's so fat she needs the momentum to get up! ROFL

    Kay's cam is still down.

    Precious is still fat!
    I guess I was wrong in my prediction, but then again...HOW MANY polls did I win? NONE!! lol

    Yeah, but have you noticed that her belly is even lower! How much longer can that poor thing hold on! Pretty soon that belly is going to be resting on the ground, and her little legs won't even touch it! LOL And she really does look like a piggy from certain angles!!!

    You mean to tell me that Precious hasn't foaled YET?

    And we thought Patches took her time.......

    I know (from what Kay said) that it is dangerous (and not done)
    to induce labor. But, poor, poor Precious.....

    Precious is in labor, but there's a problem. They've been trying to pull the foal for about 50 minutes now without success. They just tilted the cam so we can't see the action.

    The Precious cam is still operating, but they took a rake and tilted the camera so you can't see the action. Joanne and the guy have been trying to pull the foal for 51 minutes according to my phone time without success. You can see a bunch of people there and Precious' muzzle every now and then. It doesn't look good for the foal. Or precious.

    That's weird!
    If I go thru PacPintos site, I get a black screen.
    If I go thru RealPlayer, I get the cam aimed at the floor.
    I sure hope all is ok with that baby!
    I know Joanne is probably beside herself!!

    Ok, power is being dumb again.
    Time to shut down for a while

    Terri, I don't know if the cam is down or not. I'll try real player too. Ask Kay to let me know. I'm sitting here sniveling over the foal and praying that Precious is ok.

    sorry, but all future mare stares and watches are supposed to be in the owners' diaries. we left the last one in GCC because the birth was "any day now" just as we made the section changes.
