321 days

Well I have good news and bad news!

The good news is that Aura seems to be progressing nicely. Her bag is getting bigger and her belly is matching it! The milk vein is staying slightly apparent and she seems to be slowing down lately. Also, not pregnancy related, I did attempt to clip her for the first time yesterday. I didn't tie her or anything because I wanted to see her reaction. I managed both ears and her halter/bridle path with NO ISSUES, she never even moved an inch. GOOD GIRL!

Bad news is apparently I'm a total failure and can't count :( which is a shame since I've always been a math major. I was off on the days apparently and Aura is now only 321 days which means much more waiting. I think she still has a few good weeks before we have a baby but at least my dates are correct now!

Ugh, I hate it when I do that! (you are not alone). Her bags are fuller in the latest pic then mine was the night before she foaled. They like to keep us guessing!

Just going off her back I would say that there is still a ways to go.

Yea she's actually 323 days today and I won't start doing nightly checks until she either starts looking much closer or until we hit 340 days.

I really should unsubscribe from this thread. I want her so bad hahhaa. CANNOT wait for this beautiful baby Poco! I think my obsession with paints is slightly unhealthy hehe.

I'm pretty much decided if it's a filly it will be registered as: "LF Miss Love n Liquor" it doesn't have anything to do with either of their names but I just love it lol. Not sure on a colt name yet but I am thinking regardless the foals barn name will probably be "Promo" lol.

Gorgeous horse! Can hardly wait to see the baby!! Ps....slightly off topic, but what is "frame". I don't know much about paints.

Frame overo is a white pattern that when present in the homozygous form (two copies) it is always lethal. Breeding two frame carries together gives you a 25% chance of a doomed to die foal, 50% chance of a frame carrier, and a 25% chance of a non-frame foal.

This is a really good example showing how the white is "framed" by color, and this is why it is referred to as frame.

Frame overo is also referred to as OLWS (Overo Lethal White Syndrome) or being an OLWS carrier.
