    As promised to the Peanut and Suze Mare Stare-ers here is my foaling thread!

    Introducing the leading ladies in order of due date... (photos from three days ago)

    Rivain

    Not the most flatering of photos but I love the look on her face [​IMG]

    Rivain is due on the 1st of September and is carrying the first foal of my stallion, Pallidon.

    Ashanti

    ashanti belly.jpg

    Ashanti is due on the 11th of September. She is the half sister of Pallidon and is in foal to a half brother of Tinker, a silver bay.

    Twinkles

    twink belly.jpg

    Twinky is due on the 24th of October. She is also in foal to Pallidon.

    Fantasy

    fantasy belly1.jpg

    Fantasy is due on the 8th of November. She is in foal to a chestnut appaloosa so add a 50% chance of appie traits.

    Dreamy

    dreamy belly3.jpg

    The mare that is keeping me guessing! Dreamy may or may not be in foal to the sire of Pallidon, a palomino. At this point only time will tell. Add 50% chance of appie!

    Updates.

    I need to take new photos tomorrow as Rivain has done a belly drop!

    Fantasy has an active one in that belly, probably a colt given how often I'm getting kicked!

    All the broodies are moving up into their foal paddock tomorrow. It's close to the house and well within the alarm range with nothing to block the signal.

    Fantasy is GIANT. But based on photos from her old owner she carried very large with that one little filly so it seems to be the normal for her.

    Nothing yet in the udder department although I don't know what is normal for most of these girls, I've only foaled down Twink before.

    I've told all of them to give me dilutes were possibility [​IMG]

    Fantasy and Ashanti are to the same stallions they had foals to last year. Fantasy had a minimal splash chestnut filly and Ashanti had a nice little bay colt.

    Rivain and Ashanti will be the first to bag up and I'm mostly monitoring with my camera. Rivain is a very shy mare who I've built up to her current level of trust and she is still a bit unsure with this whole udder touching deal. Doesn't make it easy to check! I'll grab fresh photos photos of udders tomorrow and we'll wait for the changes to start.

    Twinky and Ashanti have both had their udders milked so it isn't odd for them. Fantasy really likes the attention so although it's new I've been able to rub and scratch all over and we have started basic udder handling.

    Rivain however still looks at any back leg/rear end handling with a lot of suspicion [​IMG] She's never been abused or neglected but she is shy by nature and was mostly left to her own devices. I'm a lot more involved with my mares so it has been a huge change for her. She's learnt though. She greets me with pricked ears, checks for treats and can be haltered as long as I don't hide the halter and lead from her. She insists on seeing them first. And then I'm not allowed to put anything around her neck, it must be nose first and then the rest [​IMG] It's been great watching her progress in the nearly two years I've had her and I'm sort of proud she was the first mare to go to Palli, I've put a lot of work into both of them [​IMG]

    First I was like, "why are they so fuzzy?" then I'm "Oh yeah, it's winter in Australia, duh!". They are so pretty. It's encouraging to me to hear your story of Rivain, my little girl is soooooo shy and suspicious, but I've only had her 3 months so I have hope; and luckily time since she does not appear to be in foal after all.
