Hello, my mare has started to bag up!
Last night there was almost nothing just a little big bigger than usual, but today I checked her and her bag is large, and it is hard?
Will take photos later on..
So just wondering, what should a normal bag look/feel like And what shouldn't they look like?

Thanks

Every mare is totally different so no right or wrong bag!:) Some mares don't bag up until after they foal, and some weeks before and look like a cow rather than a horse!;)

Thankyou, thats helpful! :)
Just been down to check her again, managed to grab a few pictures of her bits and pieces!
May not be very useful as she is a small 11hh, and wouldnt stand still!

I know nothing about donkeys I'm afraid. If she were a pony then I'd say she doesn't look that close to me but I'm not a donkey person sorry.
