It appears my darling Whiskey may be a little further along than expected. Dad called me to come look at her today. You see, she is bagging up. Her hind is looking "soft". What this means is no June baby. It is looking like an April or early May baby. The baby watch is on. I'll be burning up the miles to the farm. While dad has calved countless calves, he has no experience with horses. Giving him a crash course in what to watch for I reassured him that he would know when it was her time. I gave him a heads up of when a vet would be needed. In the meantime, I will drive. And when she's "waxing" up I just may decide to stay there. Fingers crossed for healthy baby delivered safely.
