Hello everyone! Well, I decided that at 9 months into the pregnancy it would be a good time to start a thread to record Angie’s process and to keep me busy until her foal is born! Angie is a Quarter Horse mare who was bred last May. The vet did an ultrasound in June and confirmed she was in foal. We are using April 27th as her estimated due date, putting her at around 275 days today, so still some time to wait!
We got Angie last year when her owners, who are close friends of ours, were injured in two separate accidents only several weeks apart and had to spend time in the hospital. Due to their injuries, they needed all the help they could get to take care of their horses, so they asked if we would take Angie and her two-month-old colt in for a while. Well, fast-forward in time, and, since they are downsizing, Angie is now officially ours!
So far, Angie seems to be handling her pregnancy with grace. She is very sweet and is the perfect horse to just relax with after a long day. Her favorite way to spend the day is napping in the sun. We have been getting some unseasonably nice weather recently and she is LOVING it. Enjoy it while you can sweetie!
Here is some info...

I will do my best to keep posting pictures and updates, especially when she gets closer to foaling and things are changing more quickly.
Here is a picture of Angie I took today, after she got up from her mid-morning nap.
