Life Bumps into this Arabian Breeder Again

OK, I apologize this picture is dark but it's the best I could get. It you look closely, you'll see that this mare is waxed. That refers to the droplets on the end of each teat. Also, there's a kind of shiny appearance to this mare's udder.

This udder is not full like I would normally expect. Usually, but obviously not always, a mare's udder will get much larger than this before it waxes. But once it's waxed, the size isn't nearly as important as the fact the mare has waxed.

By the middle of the day this mare was dripping milk every time she moved. Not large quantities, just a drop or two, but as an experienced breeder I took this mare very seriously. So instead of writing my blog, I went on foal watch. For now you have a picture of the udder that has detained me and the link to my webcam.
Bey Aana's bagged up and now waxed. Her milk is beginning to come in.
You can see some of her previous foals on our website, Rising Rainbow Arabians .
