Bella's foaling thread....

I was going to wait until she was 300 days before starting a foaling thread but I just can't wait. Bella is 296 days today. This is my first foal and Bella's second. At least one of us know what we are doing. She has really started to get big in the last few weeks. I am so excited for the baby. I am hoping for a filly but a little colt will be just fine as long as he is healthy.
Here is a picture before we bred her:

Here is one just a few days ago:

This is the baby daddy:

Yay, I was wondering when you would make a foaling thread! Hoping for a happy healthy filly for your sake :)

Thanks Kansas! I am so nervous, excited and going crazy all at the time. My husband thinks I am nuts because the rub her belly every night and check to see if she has started to bag up. Every once and a while I can feel baby kicking. Bella just looks at me like "would you quit making him do that". So far so good.

Awwww, can't wait to see this baby! The sire is definitely unusual.

Zeus is an amazing stallion. When I had my bad accident out on the trail a few months ago, he was the one who carried me out. It didn't bother him that I was bleeding profusely . He just stayed calm and brought me back to the trailer where the ambulance was waiting. I was so lucky to be riding with great horses and people that day.

Good News, Bella is prefect. Vet says her weight is good and she is in good health for when the foal comes. She got her vaccines today so now it is just the long wait for the next 30 to 40 days.

Took a few pictures of Bella today. Not great photos. The shadows kept getting in the way.

Bella is looking uncomfortable. She really isn't in a hurry to get any where. Doesn't even trot down to get her grain anymore. Baby was kicking up a storm tonight. Bella kept kicking up at her belly telling him to quite it. Poor girl. She hasn't started bagging up yet. I think this last month is going to take the longest. At least she is not due during finals week. I hope I have time to breath between finals and when the foal comes.

I thought I would give you guys more information on Bella and Zeus.

Bella is a Missouri Fox Trotter. She is 9 years old. This is her second foal that I know of. Her last foal is now 3 years old. She has a nature gait and the most awesome canter. She has kind of a sweet and sassy personality. You can't tell her what to do I like to say you have to discuss it with her and convince her to do it. I still wouldn't trade her for anything. I can't wait until I can get back on her.

Zeus is also a Missouri Fox Trotter. He was an extensive show record. He has a nice gentle temperament. He also has a nice nature gait.

I am getting so excited for baby to arrive. If she ever finishes shedding out I will try to get really good pictures of her with out all the fur and mud.
