    Hi Ladies! I thought that I would start a thread for my girl Izzie! She is a 10yr old 35inch amhr bay and white pinto. She has had (that I know of) 2 foals. She foaled nicely with no assistance with both of those. She was bred to my amha,amhr, 100% falabella boy Ferrari (whom Diane was sweet enought to let me purchase). He is a bay and white pintaloosa with one blue eye. She was put with him during her heat cycle on Oct. 7 2011 and stayed with him thru the spring. I did not see her in season again after october...but that would make her at 368days today. I think she probably bred on the next heat (wich was also about the time that I found out that I was pregnant and had horrible all day morning sickness, so it is possible that I didnt notice her in heat then!) I started taking photos of her from the side every week to two weeks a little over two months ago. I should have started taken udder pics then too, but I didn't. I am going to post some current pics of her and Ferrari, then I will post progression pics of Izz. Get ready for picture overload! Thanks Ladies!

    These are current pics. When I first started checking her udder the nipples were turned in toward each other. I don't have any pics from then, but they are pointed down now and she is making a little progress. She also has quite a bit of edema in front of her udder. It has been there for about a month and a half. Sorry for the crazy side view pic, but the sun was right behind her so I had to shade the camera. My hand is in the top of the pic. So....I guess I will join you guys that are going nuts waiting on these pregnant mares! I am officially starting my "tricolour filly with spots" chant now!

    Miss Diane you might be sorry that you asked for pics...lol! I really love Ferrari. He is such a doll. So sweet and loving! I really had planned to wait until the spring (at least) to breed Izzie, but Ferrari only had a gelding for his pasture companion at that time and they weren't exactly friends. I had him and Izzie seperated with an entire pasture between them. He jumped TWO fences to get to her! I didnt want him to get hurt on fences so I just left him with her. I have three mares and a yearling filly now so he is pretty content and doesnt try to jump fences as long as I keep one of his girls with him. Right now Izzie and the filly are in one pasture and the rest are in another.

    Here is Trevor and my daughter Payton Rae.

    Congrats on the new grandbaby! Trevor was born on july 12th. I had crocheted him tons of little hats before he was born(I was on bed rest and trying to find anything to keep me busy!) But with all that hair he didnt even need them! He still wore them in the hospital. Thanks for the welcome back! I have been around, but I mostly just lurk and drool over pics...lol.

    Ferrari is great with the girls. He occasionally gives them a bit of attitude just to make sure they know that he is "in charge" lol. He is the sweetest guy. He comes running for some attention when he sees me and is just an absolute pleasure to have around. I am so glad that you thought of him for me when is was drooling over K.C. Diane! I keep Pippa seperate because she is only 18months old. I usually try to keep one of the mares with her so she isnt lonely, so it worked out nicely for Izzie to pasture with her for now! I really want to get another filly for company for her... am looking at a silver dapple appy filly about her age now. I havent seen her in person yet, just pics. I hope to go see her this weekend. I have a question for those of you in the know about color. This girl is out of a cremello mare and by a black blanketed with spots appaloosa. She is a silver dapple appy...no spots yet, just striped hooves,sclera, and mottling. Here is my question...my non appy silver dapple filly has striped hooves and sclera...can the silver gene cause mottling too? All my girls are pinto and I really want my next to be an appy...

    I wrote an entire post earlier....then my computer went down and lost it! [​IMG]

    My girl Pippa is amha/amhr. Her registered name is REFS Silver Illusion Eclipse. Her sire is a blue roan frame overo and her dam is a silver bay pinto. Pippa is listed as a silver dapple, but she is actually a minimally marked pinto...I just havent gotten it changed yet. She has several white spots on her tummy. I am at work, but I think there are a couple of pics of her on this computer...I will post them. I don't know of any appy in her background, but it would be awesome if there was! She has striped hooves and sclera. I havent noticed any mottling, but I havent really check her girly bits for it either. I know that the silver gene can cause striped hooves, but didnt know if it could possibly cause sclera too?

    I

    zzie looks the same...no change. She has been a bit of a grump the last couple of days, but her udder looks exactly the same.

    Here is Pip...let me know what you think Miss Diane! If you need better pics let me know too...these are just the ones on my work computer!

    Awesome Miss Diane!! Thanks for the look up! Her sire is registered as a blue roan pinto, and I had wondered if it was possible that it was an appy varnish gene that was roaning him out? Even if it isnt, its awesome to know that there is appy there! I'm gonna try to find pics of some of the others down the line and see if they look like pintaloosa or solid appys! I plan to test her for LWO sometime next year (her sire is LWO+) so I will have to test for LP while I am at it! Thanks again!

    Miss Izzie has no progress...if anything her bag looks smaller [​IMG] :frusty [​IMG] .

    I've got some pics from today that I am going to post below. I need to look back in my calender, but I think that she was with Ferrari until april or may...will look and confirm it. I KNOW that she was bred in october, but I guess she could have come in again anytime after that and I somehow missed it.

    Yay Izzie's thread is back!!!! I didnt get to post for a bit and her thread disappeared. Izz's udder looks exactly the same. I am seeing alot of BIG foal movement. I think that we are definitely going to be waiting until spring (wich is a good thing since that is when I had planned for anyway) My camera battery is charging...I will get new pics in the morning.

    Hi Megan! When are we breeding Laney back?? We need another Tink!

    Thanks Bonny! I have a camera, but I dont have her online. I may put her on later, but for right now she is still out to pasture so you cant really see alot.

    It is still dusky at my house before I leave for work and the flash kept going off on my camera...will see if I got any decent pics when I get to work. I did get this really neat video of my little tricolour spotted filly kicking tho! I hope it attaches, I've never put a video on here before...

    ***UGG I cant get it to load! how do i do that?!?
