Yawn warning: this is a video of a pregnant horse eating. That’s it.
Barbie not giving birth, yesterday, five days after her due date:
On a humorous note, I saw the baby either kick or roll, a slight bulge outward in the area behind her ribs, then gone. Barbie’s head jerked up from the grass. Her muzzle wrinkled and her ears pinned. She raised a hind leg to kick at her belly, paused, put her hoof down.
The baby pushed on her side. Kicking her stomach? Wrong spot.
She put her head back down to eat, and lashed her braided, VetWrap-lumped tail against the exact spot I’d seen move, effectively “smacking” the baby with the hard lump.
She might know there’s a creature in there.
And I think she is not going to be one of those push-over mares, who don’t discipline their foals well. Commando Mom. Has a nice ring to it.
I must admit, I was awed at her intelligence. She wanted to whack whatever punched her and was going to make sure she hit it back correctly!
