Well, the foal is clearly in position. As I was checking Rosa’s vulva this evening she was given a swift kick in the anus from the other side! Besides being as droopy as an empty sack, her vulva is becoming swollen and deepening it’s shade of red. Her udder has been very firm and hot for the past few days. She’s also been going through what seems like a lot of water, though she’s nibbling on the straw some so that could be contributing to her thirst. She continues to neglect the last bits of meals, though, again, the straw nibbling may be a factor. She’s getting to the point now, based on her other signs, that I may be up continuously regardless of her milk test reading, which I’ll wait to do late tonight.
