We're Expecting

No, not me! The girls spent the night in the barn on itchy bales of hay to watch Maggie, a pregnant miniature horse that belongs to a neighbor. After breaking her back, this neighbor moved back to the city and contracted with Lauren to take care of the animals she sold them. Maggie is a sweet, dark bay mini and due sometime this month. The girls are excited and I am cautious. This mare has lost two of her five foals.

Dh went up to check on them last night, where he found them watching a movie on the personal DVD player. Really roughing it. He resisted sneaking up and scaring them, which would have been difficult for me. I have a personality defect, enjoying hiding in a closet and jumping out to startle people, but I am learning to get over it.

The rooster crowed at the crack of dawn, waking them up. Yesterday, she seemed to have "dropped" and her udder is starting to fill. Shouldn't be long now.
