    First is Sassy. She is a dun appaloosa (LP/lp) bred to a HZ black appaloosa (LP/lp) stallion, AF Blackhawk. She is 341 days today.

    Baby is less active. She, at times, is v'd than not. She has been rubbing her butt more often. As of this morning, her vulva is more elongated and slightly swollen. Her butt muscles are relaxed. You can lift her tail with no resistance. She needs to fill a little more in the milk bar area.

    She is shy but will let you come up to her. She hates you touching her belly and bag area. I have been working with her and she is getting better. She has foaled before. She has had several foals by the same stallion.

    Second mare up is Rain. She had the silver dapple filly last year. She is bred to our 28" smoky black LWO+ stallion Magic Mans Top Ticket.

    She is 305 days today. She is starting to get a bag. She foaled last year around 330 days. Looking forward to this baby.

    We already lost a Ticket baby and Rain is one of the two remaining mares bred to Ticket.

    He has produced 100% fillies and they have been tiny and refined.

    Third mare is also 305 days today.

    Her name is Puzzle ( she is a Iniki daughter). She is HZ tobiano and LWO+. She has doubled up ob her bag in the last two days.

    She last lost her first two babies. First one was do to her getting a viral infection that almost killed her. She pulled through but lost her baby. Second baby was aborted due to her contracting Lepto.

    We have talked to pervious owners vet and our vet. She was declared broodmare sound and should have no problems. She is bred to LK Buckeroo Zipit, a perlino Buckeroo son.

    Fourth mare is Fabs. She had the bay pinto colt last year at 319 days (maiden). She is 302 days today and looks to be in no hurry to foal. Very little bag production. She is bred to our cremello stallion, Casper.

    Fifth mare is Flutterby. She is a Pacific Moonlighting daughter. We have not tested her yet but believe she is a smoky black LWO+ sabino. She has two blue eyes.

    She will be 300 days on March 16 and has a descent bag starting. She is a tad chubby and this is her first foal. She does not look pregnant but have seen foal move and kick on numerous occasions.

    She is bred to Rohan, a silver smoky black (HZ silver, was not tested but believe HZ black). He has only produced black based silver babies.

    The three remaining mares will not be 300 days until April 17,18, and 19. Will take pictures and starting updating you when they are 300 days.

    She keeps slowwwwly filling. This baby better be a flashy spotted baby as long as she has made us wait.

    The two other mares that are closest are creeping up on her. We were hoping for a St Patrick baby, but time is running out.

    Her is a picture of her milk bar this morning.

    Well, Sassy had a red bag and we were unable to get a black colt out in time. Then she prolapsed, so we had to euthanize her. ? RIP Sassy and baby!

    Thanks everybody. This foaling season has been rough. Still have four mares over 300 days and three that will be 300 towards the end of April.

    Hopefully we start getting better results with the remaining mares.

    I am so very sorry for your loss.

    It must be twice as hard, loosing both mare and foal.

    Well our four mares over 300 days have decided to race to the end. They are all progressing and almost tied. Her are milk bar pictures.

    Our weather has been a pain. We had three days of almost constant rain, than one sunny day. Now we are expecting rain today and possible a rain/snow mixture tomorrow. Followed by more rain.

    First picture is Rain at 323 days

    Second picture is Puzzle at 323 days

    Third is Fab at 320 days

    Fourth is Flutterby at 315 days
