Arabian Foal Due in October! Predictions & Pedigree?? * update, she is here *

Okay so I'm being a complete horse nerd here, but my excitement is overwhelming! I have a foal that is due in early October (possibly even next month!) and I thought it would be fun to hear your predictions on color and sex of the foal. Here are the sire & dam's information:

Zaire SLG
Zaire Slg Arabian
*Has no other foals (this will be his first)

Ma Hijo Velvet
Ma Hijo Velvet Arabian
*Has 3 previous foals (1 black by black stallion, 1 chestnut by black stallion, and one bay by grey stallion)

I would also love to know what you Arabian breeders/owners think about the pedigrees. I know basic bloodlines when it comes to Arabian breeding but I'd love to learn more if possible

Don't forget to leave your guesses!!
Color: black, bay, or chestnut?
Sex: filly or colt?

I'll play along- black filly.
Out of curiosity, how old is your picture of your mare?

I hope more people play along. I like your bloodlines on both sides. I really know next to nothing about breeding, but here's my guess:

I'm going with a bay colt.

My hubby says black filly.

You'd better keep track and let us know! I'd say more pics of momma are a must. I admire your courage to breed your mare at the age of 21. I think I'd be a wreck. I have a black Arabian mare I'm thinking about breeding. She's only 9 and has never been bred, but I think I'll wait a year or two yet. I want a black foal and have my eye on a nice stud.

He's got great bloodlines:

Pharo Vallon Arabian

I'm a Magnum Psyche fan. What do you do with your mare? Do you show, trail ride, or do endurance as your screen name implies. What are her three prior babies doing....

Thank you guys for playing rock

So here's the scoop, both mare and stallion belong to my uncle. I have my own Arabian mare that I compete endurance with and I love her to death. I posted her below.

We decided to breed Zaire to Velvet last summer but due to mother nature she didn't take until the last time we attempted to breed, hence a late due date. My whole family thought she would never take, so we are ecstatic. All of Velvet's foals have grown up to be excellent performance horses. Zaire has no foals prior to this one so we are excited to see what he produces. His sire Zambizy was an extraordinary stallion who produced many versatile performance horses, including some phenomenal endurance horses. I've grown up with both of theses horses, including Zambizy when he was still alive, so its very exciting to know I'll have my own little bundle to raise and hopefully compete. If all goes well this foal may be my Tevis horse Okay enough of my family affair!

Velvet is indeed 21, but a bursting ball of energy. My uncle says he's never seen her so sassy, so let's hope that's a good thing

Here are some more picture of Zaire and Velvet

Sassy Mamma


So this is what we got so far:
Black filly-2
Bay colt-1

The daddy is gorgeous!!! I will say a black colt, since she seems to have a prevalence for throwing boys, lol!

Thank you Falcor
WS Arabians...year of the penis it is!

I forgot to mention Velvet has a milk vein already! If she goes full term the baby will be born on October 19th. Personally I think she'll have it early, but now that I say that she'll carry it longer lol. If she foals at 320 days she could have it as early as September 27th! What do you guys think? She's smaller, but I have no idea how long she carried her other foals.

Black colt-1
Bay colt-2

Dads a nice looking boy for sure!

October for a foal? Are you in an area where its warmer in oct?

Ignore that last part i see you rebred later causing a late foal. I can't wait to see what colors you pick for the foal lol I love foals in foal blankies.

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

Bay filly.

I'll even go one further and add the stripe on the nose and two socks on the hinds like mom. Wouldn't that be striking?

Red Gate Farm--that would be VERY striking...keep your good thoughts coming my way! lol

MsBHavin--you forgot to guess the color and sex! I'm holding you all to it

For you Arab people....please feel free to educate me on the bloodlines. I can pick out some, but the more I can learn the better!
