And I’m back. Early for this years foal. I have one for sure in foal and one that is anyones guess. First one that would be due is Aristocratic Big City Rhapsody AKA Rhapsody. She’d be 251 days today. I don’t think she’s bred. Had her ultrasounded and it was inconclusive. Haven’t felt movement yet. However she’s not been in heat and is sporting a pretty good belly. Some edema in front of her udder too. She’s a 9 year old maiden.
Second is Firewaters Isidora Of Olympus AKA Izzy @ 236. She’s had a clearly positive ultrasound and I’ve felt movement. She’s a a 15 year old proven broodmare. I bought her in foal a couple years ago so this will be her first foal by my stallion.

Izzy is black (I think) gone grey. Rhapsody is bay. Both are in foal to my silver bay tobiano stallion. First two pics are of them today. Second two are of them when they were in shape. Last 3 are of my stallion all at 9 years old.

Thanks everyone!


Beautiful horses!! How do you trim those show manes so perfect?? Just gorgeous! 😍😍
I trim both of the sides of the mane so I only have the middle portion of the mane. Then I use a mane tamer to help it lay flat.

Well Izzy has officially hit the miserable stage. She’s 258 days now. I’m still not convinced one way or another on Rhapsody. Felt some possible foal movement but not definitive enough to convince me. I’ll just continue to watch her for now. She’s 273 so if she is in foal hopefully it’ll become clear soon.

Well Rhapsody is 278 and Izzy is 263. I still think Rhapsody is faking…. That said, both seem to have a bit of udder. A bit early for Izzy so I need to keep an eye on her. Not enough on either to worry me yet. But makes me more suspect of Rhapsody. The next month wil be interesting. Apologies for the slightly blurry pics. Was darker than I realized for my camera.

Well y’all….my mare Izzy either had a sneaky date with my stallion earlier than I thought or she may have placentisis. She’ll be under camera starting Thursday and I’m getting her into the vet asap. She’s supposedly only 270 days. But no way she’s making it another month with the udder she has. No other signs of placentisis so hoping she had that sneaky date…..
