    I like the name Cassie, but prefer FINN to Finlay/Finley - Suzie and Finn goes nicely together and sounds good too. [​IMG]

    OK here are my pics of my wonky legged filly. No treatment given (just like Dian's little fella) but Momma Nutty was grazed in hand for an hour morning and afternoon for three days just to give the little girl a lightly reduced exercise pattern - she wouldn't lay down and sleep outside until the third day, so once she did that we happily put them out all day. (Nutty is a lady who loves her stable and does NOT get stressed by being in.)

    First day out.

    One with her gorgeous Momma, my special Nutty and my original foundation mare, purchased as a three year old in 1993 - in foal to Dragon (we hope) for her last foal, then she will just be my favourite pasture pet! [​IMG]

    Filly (Hazel) a week later.

    Two months later.

    Oh Cassie, he does make me laugh!! Poor Suzie is trying to eat her food (you are early or has something gone wrong with the clock?) and naughty Finn was doing his tail 'whirring' and was trying to rub his little botty against Suzie's chest. She kept moving backwards to get away from him, but he just kept backing up - looked as though he was pushing his Momma backward LOL!! Poor Suz eventually had to walk all round her stable to get rid of him so she could get back to her food!

    I think this little fella is going to lead Suzie and you a merry dance in the future - talk about Mr. Personality!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Glad you like the double nn idea for Finn Cassie and yes I do like his show name. [​IMG]

    Feel free to show the pics of my Hazel to anyone - together with Diane's pictures, they could give hope to others who might have 'wonky legged foals'

    Hurry with Penny's pics, it's nearly my bed time and I want to see what she looks like!!

    With the name I'd check with wherever you are registering to make sure they don't have a letter limit because that can really interfer with naming [​IMG]

    And not to plug the group I'm with [​IMG] but check out AMHS (http://amhs.com.au/) they are new but building a strong base in VIC and NSW. And because they are new their fees are pretty good right now! Ok, I'll end the shameless plug [​IMG]

    I like Finn better then Finley as well [​IMG]

    Given how Dreamy led me on for awhile, and not just me she conned a few other experienced breeders, I'm not brave enough to guess [​IMG] :rofl

    I'd get her scanned/tested in some way if you think she might be.

    Its hard to know if Penny is in foal. Its the shape of her tummy that looks suspicious to me. Have you ever noticed any movement. Does she have anything that resembles an udder or the beginnings of one?

    Might be worth getting her checked or tested just to be sure but I dont think I could rule her out looking at the pics.

    haha no worries Hazel LOL I don't mind, personally I LOVE the name Hazel!! [​IMG]

    I haven't seen Penny come into heat the whole time I have had her... I thought I felt a tiny movement this morning... but will have to spend more time feeling to make sure...

    she is starting to get the fluid sack in front of her udder... [​IMG]

    its so hard to know.... she definitley has a bigger tummy then last month... but it might be that she is just fat... WDIK lol

    but their previous owner Mark, might be coming on Sunday to see Finn so I'll see what he thinks when he sees Penny,.

    Hi Cassie, I had to spend the day at a food show in Tampa ( just desserts...its a terrible job but someones got to do it LOL )but was able to watch little Finn and Suzi for a bit earlier...hes very brave for such a young and tiny wee one. I like watching Suzi let him get just so far and stay away for just a bit then it...get back to me time. I love the silly faces in his pictures. Have you managed to come out of the foaling "fog" yet...I was in it for about 4 days...couldnt think of anything else...just Cam! It sounds like you are doing the same with Finn.

    Amazing photos Anna and Diane....people need to look at those before rushing to do all sorts of splints and wraps which Im sure can possibly make things worse.

    Cassie he is such a doll baby and i hope Penny is preggo!! Finn needs a little sister to take care of. Am i missing the post where you mentioned his show/registered name...I cant seem to find it.

    Cassie a "friend" wouldn't say this, Heck we didn't even say it to you know how. If they were experienced horse people they would know better than to judge a foal's legs at such an early age.

    Well Diane and Anna have proved that.

    "nah, we were just a bit dissapointed that we tried to give you advice and you didn't really listen or take any notice."

    And I would have responded with:

    "And I was a bit dissapointed that I told you were to stick it and you didn't listen so I guess neither of us got what we wanted." [​IMG]

    Actually we may have just discovered why I don't have many friends [​IMG] :rofl I have no tolerance for 'friends' who behave in such a manner towards me.

    In the horse world one of the first things you need to grasp is we all have opinions and a lot of those will conflict with others. What you learn pretty quickly is that holding one opinion does not make everyone else wrong so unless it's a matter of 100% obvious neglect we have no right to dictate to one another. Obviously your friend has not grasped this fact!

    Enjoy Finn and ignore those sorts of comments [​IMG]

    Haha, thats exactly it - you cant please everyone Cassie. In the end you have to do what you feel is best. You can take or leave any of our advise - its all there for you to consider, and use, or not use as you like [​IMG] Your friend should think the same way.

    I have Temptress, my last mare to foal in tonight. She doesnt look totally ready to me, but her ph is testing ready. I havent foaled this mare out before, so i dont know her pattern, so she's in to be safe. I havent had a ph test ready, and them not foal before, so im going with that.

    She's on marestare if you want to have her up http://www.marestare.com/cam.php?alias=anyssapark

    Id assume you're already at soccor. But ill check in for pics later on and see if you get a chance to load them when you get home. [​IMG]
