As many of you know, I breed pinto patterned miniature horses, but the opportunity came along to purchase this pretty, silver dapple appaloosa mare and I couldn't resist!   

 

Indian Dreams New Moon is a 32" AMHA Jr Champion Mare and AMHA Central Regional Champion Solid Color Mare (before her spots started to show!)  Dream now has increasing mottling and snowflakes starting to develop on her body. 

 

I brought Dream home on March 30 and detected the slightest hint of udder that day at 284 days gestation.

 

Within 2 days, she had substantial udder development which concerned me that far before 300 days gestation.  So, I decided to start her on Regumate and SMZ's to see if I could slow her down.

 

Udder pics in the next post.

And here is Dream's udder yesterday at day 296.  She is progressing, but not too rapidly at this point.  The medication seems to have slowed her down.  It appears that she will at least make 300 days and beyond.

I will take more pictures and post as she makes noticeable changes.  Dream is bred to a leopard appy, so I am hopefully for a baby with lots of spots!

Chanda, I think Diane maybe at work where her possible 'glimpses' at a computer are pretty limited!!

 

Hi Becky and welcome to the Nutty Nursery.  Lovely mare you have there, I'm sure she's going to give you a beautiful baby - with spots too hopefully!  Are the folks you got her from absolutely sure of her dates - as I'm sure you know, many mares will still stand for a stallion even when already pregnant.  Did you by any chance have her scanned before starting the regumate just in case they had her dates wrong?

 

Looking forward to more pics of her, she certainly a very lovely lady.  :yes

Hi Becky - LOVELY mare - is she on Mare Stare?  Just as easy to watch 2 as one.  Our maiden is also due soon and on MS.  As a pinto "purist" I will try to refrain from any comments  about her "other kind of spots" LOL!

 

Anna, mares can foal while still on Regumate so that should not be an issue if the dates are wrong.

Anna, very good point you brought up.  Dream was actually bred through two cycles.  However, the vet ultrasound dates last summer coincided with the second set of breeding dates, so I can only assume she is the gestation length I have posted. 

 

 

As Mary pointed out, Regumate won't keep her from foaling at a normal time frame or developing a full udder even if the dates are wrong.  I will continue on with it until she foals even if she happens to be further along than the information I have.     

 

Mary, Dream isn't online, unfortunately.  My camera system it too old to go online.  Have tried and failed many times.  It simply won't work!  So, everybody will have to enjoy her progress through pictures and updates.  At 4 yrs of age and heavy in foal, she definitely doesn't have her girlish figure she had at two when the picture above was taken! 

 

I will take some body shots of her this weekend and post.

I know, but she seems ot have "spots radar", so still surprising...
