Today is 330 of Sadie’s pregnancy and she’s still hanging in there. Yesterday she started biting the stall walls a bit and smooshing her butt into things… last time she did that for about 3 days before she foaled, so I’m hoping she’s going to repeat the same pattern. Funny, because last time she went 332 or 333 days (there is some debate on breeding date) so she’s literally on the exact same schedule so far. If she foals in 2-3 days I will give her extra treats for consistency (did you hear that, mare???).
In the meantime Michelle gave me access to the stall cameras so that I can see Sadie myself (sorry, it’s all part of their home security system so I can’t give it out to everyone). Really I think it’s because at least 4 times a day I was texting her asking how Sadie was and Michelle was tired of my shit. Either way, now I can pull up Sadie’s camera whenever I want! Which has been a lot. Like… A LOT. Sometimes I can’t stop watching her. Granted, most of the day she usually stands outside in her paddock where I can’t see her, but that doesn’t stop me from checking compulsively. And then taking screenshots when she does anything remotely interesting.
It’s FatMareTV 24/7 around here! Love having the cameras though, it’s lessening my anxiety a little bit. This morning she looks even more uncomfortable, keeping her butt pressed against the back wall and alternating between biting at her sides and attacking the stall wall. It’s definitely ramping up. I swear her topline looks a bit different today too, like her shape is changing.
When they’re not feeling totally miserable, this is what she and Lissa spend most of the day doing:
They’re pretty adorable.
Let’s get this show on the road!
