For those of you not yet glazed over with the mare-stare... :mrgreen: the Foal Patrol blog prediction is that La Verdad will foal tonight.

Time to eat dinner & then settle in with tea and popcorn! :lol:

Did you all see the pig patrol video on the Edition Farm page? Hilarious. They put a camera on the pig so you get a pig's eye view as it runs out of the barn and down to the paddocks squealing and grunting the whole way. :lol:

La Verdad may be thinking about it here. Or she's thinking about how she can play with our minds.

In other news, it looks like Bird Town and Arravale will have cams soon.

:oops: stupid question; if nature tells mares "foaling at night is safer" would all the lights be discouraging a mare from foaling?

Don't they wrap the mare's tail prior to her foaling? I would think if La Verdad would have her tail already wrapped if she is indeed foaling tonight.

The mare knows it is night time in spite of the lights, as horses do sense the passage of time (I'm not exactly sure how they specifically do it but trust that the horses at my barn get fed at 4 pm for dinner and at 4:05 pm if no one is getting the grain or the hay they WILL let you know :lol: )
I was wondering though if the light would be an impediment to her sleeping comfortably- it's my first night watching her but I assume she's gotten used to it by now if they leave the lights on 24/7 for the cameras.

I'm not watching that feed, but is it possible that the lighting in the stall isn't regular white light? Maybe it's on the less-disturbing gold or red spectrum, and the cameras they're using can see just fine?

Blog post today says La Verdad had her leg wrapped (it is currently unwrapped) b/c of pregnancy-related swelling. It looks to me (?) like they changed the bedding in her foaling stall to shavings? Anyway she's eating her dinner and seems happy and not in labor yet.

You saw Memento d'Oro's-eye-view of @oldtavfarm yesterday, now you can see through the eyes of Old Tavern's resident pig, Porkchop! Make sure to have the volume on for this one! Do you think Porkchop likes the snow? #FoalPatrol #PigPatrol #FoalFriday

And this is the one of Memento d'Oro, love how the mares greet each other...

Racing Hall of Fame @nmrhof
#FoalPatrol Ever wondered how Memento d'Oro sees @oldtavfarm ? Check out this video for a glimpse, as she checks out the snow in NY! In foal to #Bodemeister, she is due in about three weeks, on March 31! Go to the blog for more great videos! #MementodOro

New EXAGGERATOR in NY. Last night at Sugar Maple farm. Notes from Dan “Good foal yes, pretty flashy and reasonably correct. Not overly big but big enough” BODACIOUSNESS is a maiden half sister to multiple G1 winner The Factor. She will now visit champion RUNHAPPY @claibornefarm

I've been watching the La Verdad foal watch and they just took her out of the stall and replaced her with a mare that is grey, anyone know why?

In one of the vid clips from yesterday they said the mare across the way was reeeally close to foaling, they thought it might encourage La Verdad. Maybe it's that mare?

Otherwise I dunno, it just happened and there isn't any info up (blog or vid clip) yet.

Thanks Lurkey, this mare is very curious about what is going on in the aisle in front of the stall
