How Long? Tell Me How Long, Baby How Long?

Three mares in the off site breeding program will be due to have little ones on May 10, which means that I have been fully expecting them every morning for the past 10 days. I am not a patient man on such things. In fact, I am not a patient man in many regards. This is well known to everyone in my family as was driven home the last time we all ate out in a restaurant. I ordered something addition to the regular entree. (Don't remember what it was).

The waiter asked me if I wanted it brought out "now or later with the meal." My expression betrayed what a stupid question I thought that was. As Amanda said, "My Daddy always wants all of his food brought out now."

I try to make every experience a learning experience and to date I have learned that cussing and kicking piles of manure is an ineffective means of hastening labor.

I have heard walking can induce labor. It might be worth a try!

I hate to break this to you, but sometimes mares go PAST their due date. (Take three deep, slow breaths)
