ls this a bay or a black foal...mom is a honest 33" bay appy and dad is just under 28" non fade black and l am color blind.
She got here last night mom is still not getting around much today can't blame her she had a heck of a time spitting that one out seemed like it took hours before she was out...she was weighed in at 33 pounds and we measured holding her up as best we could at around 25" tall. We've never had such a big heavy foal before and l'm not sure l like them that big. But she's healthy which is good...



1 day old

CRIPES!!!
(that's probably what your mare said too!!)

Looks like a beautiful filly though- more pics please!! Glad all went well and everyone is healthy! Mom is probably just trying to recover from getting rid of the LOAD!!

Congratulations! You guys are due for a healthy baby!

She's the same colour as our second foal of the year. We're calling it bay.


Will we see you guys at the Mane Event this weekend? You don't have to go the meeting ...

Noooo Kendra you know how l feel about these things
anyway l like the giant baby she has the prettiest little face and bay is a good color. l'll try to get pix of all 4 foals together tonight when l let them out for exercise in the barn so you can see the huge differance in height on her. Arlie thinks DC might foal this week...

Beautiful coloring and I'd say bay too. Wow, Mom must have had a struggle getting her out of captivity.

Glad everything went well considering the size of the baby. Does she have a name yet?

Congrats from Joyce L

Holy smokes
She looks gorgeous though. I wonder how tall she's going to end up.

Well when that happens we need pictures ASAP ok? I really hope all goes well with her. Good luck.

Ohhhhh, she's sweet. LOVE bays.

I have my own GIANT. Willow was born at around 22 inches tall and just kept growing!
She looked like a thoroughbred against the other babies. At 3 months old she was already taller than her big brother Bailey.

She's now 7 months old and has stopped growing. She actually stopped at around 4 months. She's just growing sideways now!


I love them all, regardless of their size.

For you Anne Rice fans, "that's a walkin' baby!" Seriously, have many days gestation was she? Does she already have teeth? And look how black her points are already!!! She's beautiful
but my goodness she's one big baby!! Poor momma...

Wow, half grown is right LOL. Hope this wasn't her first baby......she may never let this happen again!
Looks like a nice one though. The only one we've ever had anywhere close to that weight was a shrimpy guy who just had LOTS of bone.
