Dinah is 18 this year. She's had 9 foals... COLTS! Beautiful colts. So we expected another colt...right?

I went to dip the unbilical and I always tell myself to be caurful to not dip the boy part. And I'm down there and CAN'T FIND THE BOY PART! I thought, it's retracted I bet we have to get the vet out on this one! Then I see these 2 little 'things'! OMG! I look 3 times and even feel of them to be sure. Then Frank says are you sure? I say look under the tail and tell me what you see. LOL Neither of us believed it at first LOL



I had decided that this would be Dinah's last foal. She deserves a retirement. I'm not sure how we will manage that though because she looooves the babies and will try to steal new ones if she doesn't have one.

I just can't believe it. All these years and I've begged her for a daughter just like her! So here she is and we don't even have a name! When Dr Johnston did the IGG he asked her name for their records. I had to say she doesn't have one! What should we name her? She is unbelieveably special to us as is her mother....our first and forever mini. Has to have 'Star' in it for her sire. I can't think of a thing!

I'm going to have to sit on Frank. He'a already talking Liberty class like her mom. Good grief! Not even 2 days old yet!

Oh, I forgot... color? What color is she? I thought black when she was wet, but now she's very tanish. more than shows up in the picture. A sooty buckskin? Mom is palomino and dad black. She doesn't look like any other black foal I've had.

Wow look at those legs, she is a real beauty. So glad you had a filly to carry on in the tradition of her Mother.

Congrats,

Mary

What a finale for a great mare! I can't wait to see her as she grows. I immediately thought "Wish Upon a Star" too, but here are a couple more:

Reflections Forever a Star

Reflections Star Struck

Reflections Make Me a Star

AWE!!


CONGRATULATIONS CHARLOTTE!!
SHE is soooo cute!!!


I know also what its like double and triple checking the parts!


After all our colts born here in, it seems like forever..
Then all of the sudden so far this year the first 4 are all fillies!
We really don't care as long as they are healthy, but we did a lot of double and triple checking just to be sure.


Whats worse is now we sold the stallion and so we said if we "happen" to get a filly FINALLY by him after 2 years of trying we could now keep one back as a possible addition to our herd later on since we no longer own him.
But, now we have to choose which one since they are all pretty nice little fillies.


Oh, I can't help with color either, but maybe someone will be on soon to give you a clue.

What a doll!!
Congratulations.
I don't know why you'd want to retire the mare when she's still spitting them out like that!! As long as she's healthy and not telling you it's time to retire, she's really not that old for a broodmare......and you said she loves the babies!

Congratulations!!! She is so beautiful and finely made!!!

Could her color be bay, or silver bay? That's what she looks like to my eyes.
