O you get me all excited for foaling season every year when you post this! LOL! I happily wont have to wait as long as normal as I have a couple due early this year (end of feb/early march). Cant wait and cant wait to see everyone else's too!
My favorite time of the year!! Excited to see some beautiful foals born this foaling season!! Debby should we start thread where our friends can post their links to Mare Stare so the aunties can be watching over all the Little Mommas??
It's a Boy!!!! Gidget foaled this cute, cute, CUTE! palomino tobiano colt this morning, about 5:30! He is very colorful! Out of Avalon Farms Glitter Girl and by Creta Hills Spirits Wildfire (a Ten Ls Spirits Afterglow son). This was Gidget's first baby and she was a trooper! Had a bit of a struggle getting the head out, but everything turned out great... She was a bit unsteady on her feet for a few minutes afterwards, but both mom and baby and doing great!!!
Congrats! Wow that's a nice little guy! Beautiful color and look what a nice topline and neck! It'll be fun for you watching this one mature. So happy for you. Give the new Mom a well done pat... the older broodmares have nothing on this maiden.
So I found a surprise yesterday morning when I fed horses before work. My mare didn't seem ready but she pulled a fast one on me. Super glad she is an experienced mare and all went well. Now I have a cute colt and he is tiny like his daddy. I'm thinking he is going to be black but I see he has some stripes on his hooves so maybe appy characteristics like mom? Either way he is adorable and looks just like his national top 10 daddy ?
After tragically losing a mare and two foals, we have two healthy foals.
Last night Rain delivered a silver dapple filly in a text book delivery. This am Kacey had a foal. Did not see this delivery. She is a nervous horse and doesnt like human interaction. Foal is up and nursing. Its a buckskin with two hind socks. Do not know sex. Mare very protective so needed another person to help get mare without getting hurt.
