    I was comparing Rivain's udder to Twinkle's photos from last year. 8 days after hitting Rivain's current stage Twinky foaled.

    I really hate this part of foaling, the waiting!

    Still no foals, I've taken some new udder shots and will resize them, I think they've both gained a bit in their udders.

    Ashanti gives me no timeline! It's just nothing nothing nothing and then bam! An udder! Looks like she is continuing that trend as she fills it as well.

    At least Rivain has been nicely progressing step by step.

    I'll put them on the phone to Suzie [​IMG] Actually just Ashanti, I bet Rivain would chat for hours and run up a huge phone bill!

    I really want them to wax up and give me warning, Twinkles was nice enough to do that last year and it was very nice to have the heads up.

    so did Rivain take a while before she filled up really big? was it slow progress? do you have any pics? sorry I'm just curious I will post the pics of Suzie later and you can see what you think... [​IMG] if you don't mind that is LOL

    When I'm resizing the pics from this afternoon I'll make a little run through of changes so we can see them right next to each other. I've also got Twinkles' shots from last year if you'd like to see them. She was a very textbook mare but she took her time about things, if 'the book' said you would see a change 3 to 5 days after the last one she would go to 5 days! But she waxed up and milk tested to perfection, she really gave me the best and easiest first time foaling! I hope she does it again in October [​IMG]

    It is fantastic down here! The show horses have been turned out all day for the past few days and they are loving it! Especially Pallidon, he has a lot of energy to burn but what do you expect from a young stallion who knows breeding season is just around the corner. I think I won't tell him that Tinker is getting the first girls! [​IMG]

    He is [​IMG] he bred his first mares last season so this is his first season where he knows what that smell is, I've already noticed some of my mini girls going on heat and some neighbouring QHs must be doing the same. He also knows Tinker is here so he isn't the only stallion anymore.

    I have three mares that are empty this year, two of them are going to Tinker and Palli may get the third. If not he'll have to wait until the other girls have foaled down before he gets any girls to himself.

    Must admit it is a bit of a juggling act choosing which mares go to which stallion and which ones get a year off! Easier when I had two mares and one stallion [​IMG]
