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!
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.
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.
