Saturday, May 2nd, was an unusually busy day for us on our small farm. There was a lot of work to be caught up on outside; from dosing a sick cow who was off her feed, to fixing a small pen in the front pasture. I let Fannie out into the yard as usual to graze, after she ate her usual portion of Gestolac feed, with a special herbal tea added to it. As I checked her bag, I thought she couldn't possibly be far from delivering her foal. After all, she was bred to Jesse el Rubio, son of El Chino de el Batey, on May 4th, 2014, and now it was May 2nd, 2015. According to my research, horses have a gestation length of 316-360 days, so she was a bit over due. Her udder had distended to nearly twice it's usual size now; surely she must be close.
