Congrats she is a ripper
345 days and we have a smoky black colt. Out of Flutterby (smoky black sabino LWO+) and Zipit (perlino).
He is very leggy with 7" cannons.
We have Blondie (palomino) bred to Casper (cremello) at 336 days. Not much in bag development but (if I remember correctly) she bagged up the last couple days.
Wind (smoky black sabino pinto) bred to Ticket (buckskin sabino LWO+) at 321 days. Her bag is almost there. Big changes between yesterday and this morning.
What a pretty head on your new smokey black colt. Love those babies.
Lovely colt , congrats
323 days and Wind had a solid black filly with 7"cannons. She does not have a stitch of white. Very leggy, refined, and a gorgeous head. Barn name is Raven.
Blondie is at 339 days and coasting along.
After her, we have to wait until mid July before Gidget is 300 days.
Here's some pictures of our first four babies. Three fillies all sired by Magic Mans Top Ticket. A colt sired by LK Buckeroo Zipit. We had planned on selling the colt but he is really nice, so may wait on it.
Phantom (black splash and possibly LWO+) is 7 weeks and was clipped yesterday. Boy! Did she have a few suprises hidden under her fuzz! She has more white than baby fuzz showed!
Lilly (max white) is 3 weeks old and just starting to come up to you. She is also definitely deaf. Will be clipping her in the coming week.
JR (smoky black, maybe LWO+)is the lone colt. He is 5 days old and a little stinker. He is hit or miss on liking people. Still working on controling his long legs.
Raven (solid black) is 3 days old and has some attitude.
They are all fantastic, so happy for you MMM. Such a good year for you this year
Beautiful babies. Congrats!
They are all so lovely! Congratulations <3
344 days and Blondie didn't disappoint. A cremello and filly, to boot.
Very refined, tiny, and dishy face. Back in the fetlocks but should unfold in time.
I had checked on Blondie around 7 and she was eatting. Went out around 9 pm for the night and filly was out. Mom was pretty crampy so gave her some pain meds and kept an eye on them. She was quiet a couple hours later and baby had nursed some, so went to sleep in the house. In a real bed.
We are done until July 12 when Gidget is 300 days.
Introducing MA2 Caspers Irish Cream aka Bailey (7" cannons).
They are all so precious!
I'm new to this thread . Are your horses mini? The foal is gorgeous ! I have a mini that I believe is 215 days. I read that mini's usually deliver around 220 but I have no idea. Also read it's between 200-245. We have one other mini mare who delivered a stillborn and we weren't sure of her dates, I had gotten her sometime after she was exposed and the previous owner couldn't tell me. Really nervous about this one. She is starting to bag up but vulva looks unchanged and no obvious softening to hind quarters. By her previous owner, she's delivered 3 other times. Any info would be helpful.
I think you have mistyped... Horses in general are pregnant for 342 days; minis can foal as little as 290 days, but also go well over a year (365-370 days).
You will end up with sleepless nights before the little one comes, start watching more closely at 300 days.
Yes, I didn't mean 215....you're right! My mini is 315 days. Not sure where my brain was today. Thank you for the info.
Such beautiful foals. I've always wanted to cuddle one! Lucky you!
Congratulations, she is gorgeous!
Gidget will be 300 days on July 11. She is moving right along. We have her in the area that has the barn, tackshed, and other outbuildings. I will start stalling her Thirs night and staying out in the barn.
Here is her bag from this morning.
