No that's wrong, don't know where that came from! Will have to try again, hang on.

Pixel Wed 15-Jun-11 20:04:49

aw-feel naughty watching her, but can't help myself!!
thanks for the link x

Wish she'd get a move on though, I can't wait up all night. wink

Has anything happened (cam too dark right now)? Link says she might not give birth for another 2 weeks?!

Pixel Thu 16-Jun-11 19:52:43

Blimey I didn't see that bit! My sister sent me the link and I thought I'd put it on here because it would be lovely to watch. The mare was quite restless last night so I thought the birth was imminent. confused

She's swaying like an old sailing ship tonite, but no sign of foal. [pout]

peanutbutterkid Thu 16-Jun-11 20:18:54

Oooh! She lifted her head....
Wait, there must be some paint drying somewhere I could watch, too wink

I think something is happening, dp thinks it was a wee, but i don't think so

peanutbutterkid Sat 18-Jun-11 01:30:46

I don't want to get too excited but she's lying on the floor and isn't settling, she keeps wiggling and I think her sides are moving a bit (like she's panting)?

If this starts to look right I'm waking up DD (pony mad)!

piprabbit Sat 18-Jun-11 01:43:12

She looks like she's sound asleep (sensible woman).

Reminds me of watching 24 hour Big Brother coverage.

piprabbit Sat 18-Jun-11 01:47:50

I take it back - she is awake.

I don't think MN have ever had a live webcam labour thread before.

i've been watching now for over an she close?

peanutbutterkid Sat 18-Jun-11 02:12:50

I think she's close, but close might still mean hours from now!

Every other time I've watched this for a spell, she barely moved from leaning against the left wall, head facing camera. Tonight she's moving around an awful lot, down, up, back, forth, head up, down, often back towards her sides..... I wish someone had neatly braided her tail for us so we could have had a better look at her bottom when that was perfectly presented to us.

And it's nighttime, right? She'd be sound asleep if she was comfortable, wouldn't she?

Shinyshoes1 Sat 18-Jun-11 02:16:28

nope it's there, it's halfway done.

she's giving birth shock

wow, it's hanging out of her chuff

peanutbutterkid Sat 18-Jun-11 02:21:06

I'm confused! All I see is tail!!

EggyChick Sat 18-Jun-11 02:21:59

Me too...?

Shinyshoes1 Sat 18-Jun-11 02:31:19

Sorry I confused a hairy leg with a newborn hairy horse. blush

I got a bit excited.

I will grab my coat blush

EggyChick Sat 18-Jun-11 04:21:31

She does not look comfortable, bless her.

peanutbutterkid Sat 18-Jun-11 13:49:08

That mare's a tease! [pout]

Pixel Sat 18-Jun-11 15:37:07

So I haven't missed it then?

Disasterpiece Sun 19-Jun-11 16:43:50

Just seen this, watching it now and no sign of a foal yet.

That stable is very small isnt it. I know shes big and bound to take up a lot of the room but surely she could be in a bigger stable or at least a corner of a quiet barn?

My 13.2 SHP mare is in a bigger stable...

Is she stabled 24/7 now?

Disasterpiece Sun 19-Jun-11 16:45:57

Oh god I just got a bit over excited grin 'twas just a poo!

Pixel Sun 19-Jun-11 16:52:43

I know, and I'd have a nice deep bed with banks too. Poor girl looks a bit bored!
