    The vesicle is now flabby and shapeless, conforming to the uterine walls; the fetus is about 2 1/2 inches long. You can see that is clearly resembles a horse, thanks to the development of tiny hooves, complete with soles and frogs.
    I can't get over that! So neat.

    That is sad when I see how many of the foals died, but it is very helpful as to what my sisters, mares foal looks like at 8 months! (which is how far along she is bred).
