Well in case anyone is interested here is a link to Whiskey's pedigree.

VF Moonfire

For some reason I couldn't find a link to Angie's full pedigree. Anyway, her sire is Rene Dan Jet and her dam is Act of Power.

Just a quick update--

Went out and took some more pictures of Angie today. It was snowing, big fluffy flakes, but we only got about an inch of accumulation. This has been the most pathetic winter ever! Anyway, here are the pictures from today:



Why go in your stall when you can stand outside?




Angie is going to see the vet tomorrow because she has a small abscess under her jaw that isn't healing. We just want to make sure that it isn't something that is going to get worse or cause her pain. We figure it is better to deal with it now, before she gets closer to foaling! I'll let you know what they say, lets hope for good news!

Well, we saw the vet about the abscess under her jaw. They are unsure exactly what is, apparently the hole goes all the way up to one of her teeth, but the tooth is in good shape and she is still showing no discomfort at all with eating or having it handled.

They gave us an anti-biotic to put in her feed and a syringe to flush it with but told us they don't want to do anything with her being so pregnant. She is so good about standing while we clean it and flush it; we don't even need to hold her. Hopefully it will clear up without having to do anything else.

Well, we are at 284 days today. Still so long to go! It feels like I have been waiting forever. At least the weather will be nicer in April. We got three inches of sleet last nigh. Can't wait until spring! Angie's abcess is improving, even though she is getting good at picking out her grain and leaving her antibiotics. Looks like I'm going to have to get creative.

Angie had her baby...last night in my dream. It was so weird, all I could think was, "boy, everyone online will be so surprised when I tell them she had her baby so early!"

If I'm already having dreams now, what is it going to be like when she is closer to foaling?

To pass the time, here is a picture of Dollar, who will be a half-brother to Angie's baby (same stud). He is the goofy sorrel with hay hanging out of his mouth.

Haha! I used to do the exact same thing when I was working at a horse farm during their foaling seasons! One night I dreamed a certain mare had twin palomino fillies.I woke up thinking,'Whoa,that was a far out dream.' I got to work and guess what? The above mentioned mare had delivered two palomino foals during the night!It was a colt and a filly instead of two fillies,but still.. She had been ultrasounded and everything and they missed the extra foal hiding in there.Unfortunately,we ended loosing the filly due to some health complications,but the little colt grew up into a fine stallion.
