Its that time of the year again that we all start getting excited for foaling season!  Since I have foals arriving a bit earlier this year I decided to go ahead and get this posted! 

I will add my cam link once I have it up and running, not sure I will get it online for the first two or just wait until the big group, will let everyone know :D

 

Im going to post the stallions and their mares in individual posts to keep them all straight!

First up will be my one and only shetland mini mare, Establo Dressed For Success, bred to JHK Rock E Mr Candyman (HOF)!  Her 330 day is approx 2/24 based on when the previous owner saw her in heat and covered but was pastured with the stallion.  Ultrasounded to show her close to that gestation though so pretty confident it is accurate :D

Stallion she is bred to is the first pic courtesy of Erica Killion and the rest are of Success

Next will be ELady who is returning from her new home to foal here as I kept the foal in the deal so I am foaling her out rather than the new owner have to worry about it and since I bred her so early :P, her 330 due date is 3/8

Cam is finally up and running :D 

ELady on the left but not sure she is actually bred, did her belly clip hoping that would be more obvious but sadly she has enough of an older broodmare belly that still not sure, but no udder developement...Im leaning towards open

Success is on the right, due any time and about 50-60% udder development but has been uncomfortable off and on, pretty sure due to the storms yesterday....still might have a few days.  Will be going to pick up mom's mares soon so the crazy rotations will be soon :P  We have most due in April this year, told mom she must have been mad at me when planning her breedings LOL!!! 

Ill post  the full list later today

At least you know when they were bred. We have five that were pastured with their stallions. Two were March through Sept and three were April through July.
I know one of the two is pregnant, not sure of other. Both were US but can't get confirmation when and how far along. The other three are very heavy but know two are preg, not sure of other.

O yea, I despise pasture breeding for that reason.  We only have one that we bought that was pasture bred but the previous owner saw her covered for an April baby. 

Here is the complete list: 

Success (3/6) for 340 days-Shetland Mini
Elady (3/8) for 330 days -  thinking open but wasnt checked so just watching for now. 
All minis are going to be by 330 days!  Generally dont quite get to that date. 
Wanna    (4/10)
Ebony   (4/11)
Ellie      (4/12)   
Extra   (4/13)
Belle      (5/1)
Mars    (5/2)
Ruby      (5/5)
Diamond   (5/11)
Chickadee (5/13)
Kiowa    (5/16)

Moms

Dreamin   (4/1)      
Specialty   (4/5)
Silverbelle  (4/7)
Magic Dream   (4/7)      
Frosty   (4/9)
Miss Priss     (4/14)   
Dusty   (5/16)      
Vineyard    (5/20)      
Susan   (5/31)

Obsession   April-May (pasture bred when purchased)
