    Destiny's colt 3 days old in pasture

    Just thought I'd update everyone with pictures of Destiny's colt on day 3. Both momma and baby are doing good. I think I'm going to call him Sweet on the Sixes, Diablo for short. I think I forgot to mention that he's an Ashly Acres Bruzzie grandson =). He measured 19" after he unfolded on day 2...

    Scariest delivery of my LIFE

    Thanks for all the well wishes guys. Destiny passed the placenta with just a tiny pull from the vet, and it was all there. We went ahead and did the well foal check. The foals IcG levels are already high enough to consider him "safe". He told me to turn them out supervised for an hour or two...

    Scariest delivery of my LIFE

    Does everyone think he is a palomino? His sire was a sorrel pinto, mom is a silver dapple buckskin..

    Scariest delivery of my LIFE

    Gonna try some pictures.. Sorry they are so big I can't seem to get them smaller... Here are pictures taken just after he was pulled free and while momma was bonding with him. Doesn't he look like a sorrel or is it just me? The vet drying him off and checking him out.. Wobbly but wanting...

    Scariest delivery of my LIFE

    Destiny started pacing around midnight last night, at 1:37 she laid down and her water broke. She pushed for 10 minutes and I saw nothing emerging so I got a little nervous. Then what I THOUGHT was the bubble of the sac, emerged, but then I saw it was a hoof. Just one. Not two. So I freaked out...

    Destiny is bagging up!

    Destiny is bagging up quickly. Yesterday morning her bag was starting to fill, but nipples were still pointing inwards. She's been swollen in front of the udder for about a week and a half now. This morning, her udder is even more full and getting hard. It's not completely full, or leaking or...

    Guess the foal

    Just for kicks (and since I am bored since the baby is sleeping in my bed right now!) I thought I'd throw a poll/guessing game out there for everyone. I want you to try to guess what color, height, and gender Destiny's foal is going to be. She is due June 6th through the end of June but I really...

    2nd time mare due in June to July..

    Do you think that I should be stalling her at night now? I know she's super low and they can foal without getting a bag....I'm worried leaving her out because we have lots of coyotes around here...

    2nd time mare due in June to July..

    Well I decided to post a few pictures of her belly anyways. She's very much more dropped than last time, but I guess they are probably like most humans..we all carry differently even in the same woman but different pregnancies? Thanks I did think it is too early. I don't think she's...

    2nd time mare due in June to July..

    Destiny is trying to fool me again! I would first off like to say I am absolutely 100% POSITIVE of her pasture exposure dates, as I didn't even own the stallion until a certain date and had no stallions on the property. She was bred from July 6th through the end of July, so I imagine she is due...

    Destiny having twins? Ultrasound question

    So what do I do? Just hope she doesn't have twins in there and that the foal isn't too large? I thought they were like humans. I just had my son in November and they could ultrasound me right up to my due date and make sure everything was okay.

    Remember Destiny? Foaling 4 months early? Belly dropped?

    This was Destiny October 15th, 2005. Approximately 3 months in foal... Oh and I'm not at all offended, she is a grade mare, not registered, and is just a pet and family member to me.

    Destiny having twins? Ultrasound question

    Well I just got off the phone with the secretary at my vet's office. They can't get me in until next week, but will call me with a time in the next day or two. Agh it's going to be agonizing until then. I needed the vet out anyways for my friends' horses' teeth to be floated and my Thoroughbred...

    Destiny having twins? Ultrasound question

    Yes I was also worried about her having a large foal. However the stallion himself is 31.25" and he has all small lineage. On his pedigree he had no ancestors over 34" and his dad himself was Ashly Acres Bruzzie (26.5"). So he has small lines. And all of his foals have been reasonably...

    Destiny having twins? Ultrasound question

    I know I posted below pictures of Destiny's belly and how dramatically it has dropped in the past two days. I am 100% positive on her breeding dates...I didn't buy the stallion until July 5th and he wasn't on the property until July 6th last year. She was in heat and bred for an entire 4 weeks...

    Remember Destiny? Foaling 4 months early? Belly dropped?

    See the thing is, I didn't even have the stallion on the property until July 4th...so there was absolutely no humanly (or horsey) possible way that she could have been bred earlier. Could she just be overweight on top of being pregnant? I just know that her belly has considerably dropped in the...

    Remember Destiny? Foaling 4 months early? Belly dropped?

    Hi all, remember the Destiny saga from two years ago? Well she is bred for a foal this year and is due anywhere from June 6th-July 12th (she was covered all of July last year..she was in heat 4 weeks). She is bred to a 31.25" sorrel pinto stallion that I did own, and have since sold. He's a...

    Please pray for Destiny

    Thanks everyone, for your support. Destiny still has loose stools today, but she is drinking and staying hydrated and I'm slowly starting her back on her pellets. I've been keeping her out on pasture, instead of bringing her in to stand around, to make sure things keep moving. She still seems to...
