Had the farrier out this morning and Aura seemed just tired. Lol. It took a ton of convincing and a very obvious *sigh* for her to even pick up her feet, poor momma! She's getting bigger by the day and had a decent bag on her today so we're getting closer! (But alas not quite holding my breath yet!)

Photo update from today. Please excuse her "I want to look straight at the camera with my eyes closed EVERY TIME" appearance... lol.

Wowsa, Momma sure has some impressive markings! I assume Daddy has tested negative for frame?

I think she's going to make you wait, hehehehehe.

Momma tested negative for frame :) Daddy throws it nearly every time. I think she'll make me wait to but she's only like 330 days right now so no real rush! I'm just excited since I'm fairly decided that I'm going to keep the foal!

EDIT: PS I have to admit.... you know that feeling when you're about to leave class in school and the teacher goes "Excuse me, can I speak with you a moment?" and your heart drops into your stomach and you want to run and hide? That's exactly how I feel every time I see you comment on something of mine lol. I love (and hate) that you're always brutally honest! :)

Really? That's very interesting, I would have pegged Momma for having it.

LOL, ironically I wasn't even going to say anything because I KNOW you're a responsible breeder, I just always get so twitchy when frame is involved. I've known SO many people who own frame mares and always look at me with a dumb look on their face when I tell them to avoid frame stallions - no clue what lethal white is.

I think I had the same feeling in my stomach clicking back on this post seeing you had replied because I did NOT want to insult you any way! I just noticed your stud was only advertised as a "tovero" and I was like "of COURSE she's tested" and had to be nosey anyway. Kind of ironic I was so butt arse wrong about which one had frame anyway!

I cannot WAIT to see photos of this foal, should be a stunner!

I actually never tested him because all of his foals have had frame AND because I know of a local person who had her stallion tested for OLW and the test came back negative... followed by the next foal being lethal white. I would always rather assume he has it than risk being wrong. Momma is all splash apparently! I'm very excited about the foal as well, though it will be a bit heartbreaking because I'm fairly certain we are gelding Poco this fall so I'm fairly certain this will be one of his last foals.

OH! On this note! I spoke to a lady I know who is a APHA breeder and stallion owner. She was on and on trying to sell me a mare she had as a broodmare and I was very excited until she said the mare was frame. I told her absolutely not because I didn't want to worry about lethal whites and she promised the mare was negative for lethal white... ummmm??? Granted she owns a homozygous tobiano stallion so she doesn't worry about frame/lethal but she should still KNOW about it!
