I can't wait any longer!!! As some of you know, my Arabian mare is in foal to a thoroughbred stallion for a 2014 (sooo excited, can you tell???) and my BO has three mares in foal to him as well, all due april-june.
First, the Stallion, Luxembourg Luxembourg Horse Pedigree
He is 16hh, gorgeous, and a total sweetheart to handle. His first foal was a stunning filly with four white stockings and a blaze, so we're quite excited. He raced successfully, but ended up having a sessamoid fracture that cut his career short. He thankfully recovered from that(and complications) and is now pretty happy guy. I really love a lot of things about this guy, and I feel him and my mare complement each other well.
This is my mare, Pretzl, registered "Regal Ladybird". A+ temperament, best saddle horse I've ever owned, sound, sound, sound, and feet to die for. Only things I don't like are, I wish she was a bit bigger, in width and height, I like a longer neck and a more laid back shoulder, I feel hers is too upright, which makes her a rough ride and limits her extension at the trot. The stallion is quite opposite in those departments, with a longer neck, sloped shoulder, more width and height, so hopefully the foal gets the best of both worlds. Wanting a filly(I tell her that every time I'm out there, hopefully its sinking in...) she was bred late may and again late june, has been ultra sounded. Due end of may.
