Well I'm finally getting around to creating a post for our 2013 foals.

First up, we have Blazing Stars Black Velvet. She was born April 19, and measured 23 inches tall with 8.25 inch cannon bones. We believe she will mature around 33 inches. She is lovely and mischievious, and loves attention!

Next we have Blazing Stars Chantilly Lace. Lacey was born April 20th, and measured a tiny 19.5 inches with 7 inch cannon bones. She should finish out at 30 inches or so. Lacey is a perky little girl, very inquisitive and built like a tiny little tank with beautiful muscling.

Here is a video of Lacey and her favorite feline friend:

Next up is Lady, our Sid's Rebel and Del Teras Snowman mare. She has been progressing nicely, and her due date is around May 19th. That puts her at about 314 days gestation right now. She has a very nice milk bar, and milk is easily expressed. The milk tested at 7.8 this morning, and 7.3 just now. Her tailhead area is very relaxed. We are watching her VERY closely. New pics soon!

Hello all! Update on Lady-she's been grumpy and irritable since last night. After watching her on the cam, I decided to check on her. At 6:30pm her milk tested at higher than 8.4, and was clear. But by 2:30 am her milk is sticky, creamy with a yellow tint and testing at 6.4! I've been watching her ever since and right now, she is racing around her stall, pawing, yawning, biting her sides and pinning her ears while tossing her head. She's been doing this for about 4 hours. With a lot of luck and prayers, we just may have a new foal today!

We are thrilled to say that Lady gave birth to a very healthy filly this evening. The birth went quickly and easily, and baby hopped up and walked off right away. She even bucked within a minute of standing! Mom is doing well, and they are bonding. My friend's son got to name this one, and her name is Jana. She is almost two weeks early and all legs lol. Can anyone offer an opinion on what her color is? She has a lot of brown in her coat, especially her face. She has 8 inch cannon bones so will be taller. Now I can go get some sleep tonight!!! Yay!!! Lol.

CONGRATULATIONS
on the safe arrival of your gorgeous new filly, I think she will be dark like daddy BWDIK

Could do better with dry pictures for color, what color is she inside her ears?

With daddy black, momma a palomino, a lot will depend on if momma threw her cream gene. If so, you could have a smokey black or even a dark buckskin, or if no cream gene -- even a solid black or a bay. But with bay I would have expected lighter colored legs. With the brownish showing, I'm thinking perhaps a dark foal coat hiding a buckskin or a smokey black.

CONGRATULATIONS ON A LITTLE BEAUTY!!! Can't wait for more pictures!
