Yes, for now they aren't brought in till around dinner time. As their pregnancies progress they will keep them in.

Monday night update by Beth:
Hi Everyone,



We are getting closer to our first babies of 2014. Evenstar and Joanie are both due next week and both are making changes. Their bags are filling and bellies are very round. I did a milk test on Evenstar this morning and she is testing three squares on the calcium test and her PH is still high. I will probably start testing Joanie tomorrow.



Windsong is not due until 2/25 but her bag is already about half filled. She has foaled early with both of her foals so we are keeping a watch on her and bringing her inside each night. I will be surprised if she does not foal by Mid Feb.



I will be posting nightly updates here on the message board. Thanks so much for helping us watch over the mares.



Have a good night.

I can't see it either, I'm on an iPad though. I'll have to dust off the desktop, this is such a cool idea! I use to watch one for bald eagles.

Tuesday night update! Evenstar is getting close! :dance4:

Hi Everyone,



It been a cold day for south Arkansas. I think our high today was 28 and supposed to be in the teens tonight.The girls are all snuggled in their stalls for the night.



I have switched Evenstar to the larger foaling stall. He milk calcium test has gone up to five squares and I can see some physical changes in her. Her PH is still high and her bag still needs to fill a little bit more but those things can change rapidly (or drag out). We are keeping a close eye on her.



Joanie and Windsong are about the same as yesterday. Neither of them appears to be really close yet.



I'll update you tomorrow evening or if I see anything changing.



Have a good night.

Monday afternoon update. Anyday time now! :dance4: Evenstar is my very favorite!


Evenstar will be staying inside today. She has wax and her bag is full and tight. Her PH is still at 6.4 but I expect that to change soon.



We will be watching her closely.



Have a good day.
