I’m waiting for the birth of a foal. Not one of my mares though; it’s the mare of a Kiwi mate of mine. The foal is due anytime now and, from the looks of the mare in question, it’s seconds away!
In the photo on the right below, my mate thinks the foal’s head is the bit you see bulging and that the foal is positioned to come down the chute so to speak. This will be the mare’s second foal I think and the dad is a handsome Clydesdale.
This time last year, Karma was ready to explode (Saffy was born on Christmas Day 2011) but I don’t think Karma was as massive as this mare. Must review Karma’s pregnancy photos. :-)
