We are back.

We are expecting 10 foals this year.

We bred 9 for April-May but did some trading with a couple mini friends.

We traded/sold our bay pinto 2017 colt, our palomino pinto colt, the buckskin mare, a black pinto filly, and a cremello Buckeroo daughter. In exchange, we picked up a LP/LP app colt, a dun appy mare (bred to a HZ black appy stallion), a grullo mare, and a black appy filly.

The dun appy mare is Patty Cake Sassafras. She is bred to AF Blackhawk. We know she has foaled before but don't know her foaling history. She is a shy mare but does come up to you. Fairly easy to catch. She will be 300 days on Jan 31, 330 days on March 2. She is not very big but did see the foal moving yesterday and this am. She is in a stall at night, out during the day.

We are expecting some cold weather in about a week so have it planned to move her in the kitchen (yes the kitchen) if weather doesn't improve when she gets close.

She has not really started a bag but can't go by that; since we know nothing olabout her.

Here is a picture broadside and from behind. The milk bar picture is not good. She is very wooly and was not excited about the clippers

The remaining mares will be shown when they get to 300 days

Yep, she looks pregnant with that lopsided look. <smile> I'd try to get some info on her, if possible.

We have several pictures of her pervious foals.

The person who owned her had stopped breeding several years ago, but occasionally the stallion got out and bred the mares. She did not keep any records. We have asked.

We had a mare that was only 275 days abort a dunskin pinto colt early this am.

She was acting colicky last night so brought her into the barn. Checked on her later and she seemed more relaxed and had passed some poop. Went out this am to her standing over her aborted colt still in sac. Umbilical cord broke at the placenta and she had not passed it. Gave her some oxytocin and she is starting to pass the placenta now.

Otherwise seems fine. Will keep an eye on her for a day or two, than turn her out with the nonpregnant horses.

Now awaiting 9 babies.

Well it took her until the middlebof the night to pass the placenta. It was starting to stink.

Vet has us giving oxytocin to help clean her out and penicillin for four days.

She is almost back to normal. Not eating as much as usual but since she is a tad overweight, not worried.

Weather is crappy (poured rain lastnight and now freezing rain to night) so she is in a stall in the barn.

I'm very sorry you lost your foal and glad to see your mare's on an antibiotic. Hope to see happy news with the others.
