You guys are such an enthusiastic group...I love it! Thank you all for your kind compliments As much fun as we are having here with color and gender I do want to say that health is my #1 priority here, but might as well have some fun while we are waiting!

dbarabians--you may have seen him on Polish Breeding Enthusiasts on FB? My uncle advertised him on there a few months ago as a new stud for live cover.

KigerQueen--not sure if a seal bay is possible but I stuck your guess in with the bays...if it ends up being seal bay we'll remember to give you extra brownie points

Arab Mama--thank you. I'm competing my mare in CTRs at the moment and hope to move her up to her first LD this October. Depending on how she does we plan to tackle a 50 next year. As for Zaire, he has an extensive show career that can be found on AHA database. He has never done endurance himself (although I'd love to have him) but many of his siblings/relatives have done exceedingly well. This is my aunt's endurance horse out of Zambizy...so that would make him Zaire's half brother. He is a beast and has FANTASTIC recoveries.

We get brownies if we guess right? ALRIGHT!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I agree on the brownie points. I'll take the foal! That's a whole lot of work to get to Te,vis. There is a Google Earth map somewhere that shows the route. I'll post the link when I find it. I have a friend who practices at the Grand Canyon for Tevis. We do a few CTRs and LDs wben we are conditioned. We have another friend who made the 60 rider cut, to be considered for the WEG a few years ago. The most we've done is 28 miles and THAT is grueling.

You're all foal thieves! I'll make you brownies but you can't have my baby.

Arab Mama--Tevis is a huge goal of mine. I envy your friends who train for it. I crewed for Tevis last year and interned with Christoph Schork and Dian Woodward all summer in Moab, UT. It was the most amazing experience of my life and I can't wait to go back. Christoph took 4th place in Tevis this year so I was tickled I know I'm determined enough to do it, whether it's on my horse or someone else's, but what a great accomplishment it would be to complete it on your own horse that you worked so hard to condition and prepare!

Our friend that got us into endurance also nearly made the cut for the world endurance team several years ago. They took the top ten and she was thirteenth. I think it was in 2008, one of her horses won the AHA endurance horse of the year. Endurance takes a lot of work and dedication, but it is SO rewarding. It is a chance to really strengthen the bond with your horse and be proud of knowing you've done the best you possibly can. I'm hoping my 25 year old gelding we be able to remain my primary endurance horse until the end of his days. My 9 year old mare will do well when she starts, but I so enjoy the time I spend with my boy. If you Google "Horses in the Morning" they did a show last week featuring my friend Karen Chatton who came in 25th at Tevis this year. If I remember correctly, she is going to be doing a monthly show on endurance.

Thank you Dripples!

Arab Mama--What a great resource! I think I may have seen Karen before, did she compete in Tevis last year? Her guest Sue Hedgecock (who won Haggin Cup this year) I was able to meet while staying at a ride with Christoph. I also crew for her identical twin sister here in Vermont...small world isn't it!?! I would love to see pictures of you 25 year old endurance horse...I think its great that you continue to keep him fit and youthful

Predictions:
Black filly-4
Black colt-3
Bay filly-2
Bay colt-4
Chestnut filly-1

Figured I'd share another picture of Velvet as she gets closer. Can you tell she's ready for this pregnancy to be over??
