Ellie never ceases to astound me! Just when I think she can’t get any bigger, she does. I do, however, think that this baby is going to arrive fairly soon. Ellie is beginning to produce milk and until last evening, her udder wasn’t preparing visibly. Of course, Ellie has fooled me before at how long she takes to actually foal. She looks very uncomfortable so I hope for her sake this new little life comes easily and soon.
Believe it or not, her girlish figure will return quite rapidly once the foal arrives. We humans should be so lucky! As soon as I have a new foal to photograph, you’ll be the first to know.
