Big Mare, Little Mare, and May Babies!!
Hey there everyone, just joined and have enjoyed looking through everyone's baby pictures! I'm very happy to announce that I too will be able to share pictures of my mares Remie and Miss Kitty, and their babies (whenever he/she arrives)!
Let me introduce you to my wonderful ladies and mommas to be.
Remie: She is a grade QH cross (suspected arab in her background) I rescued remie as a 3 month old, she had no human contact prior. Once I spent some time with her she bonded to me like super glue, she is super affectionate and loving... almost possessive of me. I trained her myself for trail riding (since that's mostly what I enjoy doing) and she is very smart... too smart really. She can also be quite the trouble maker because she loves opening gates and getting out... she taught me to be very thorough with my fencing and locking gates. Now that she is about 8 years old I decided to breed her. My Farrier owned a stud that have covered a mare I had bought but she didn't settle so he let me have a free rebreeding. The stud is a 25+ year old Palomino QH named Goldie (go figure lol) He is tall so about 15.3-16.1 hh. Remie is 15hh. This is Remie's first baby and out of the last crop of foals for old Goldie. She is "due" 25th-27th of May.
Miss Kitty: This sweet little girl is a 10 year old registered miniature horse, stands about 33inches, and is my little teddy bear. Great with kids, super gentle and sweet. She was at a friends house for a pony party and was turned out into a pasture with a recently cut gelding... I know it was a dumb mistake, lesson learned. Anyway, Miss kitty has had two foals in the passed but lost them both because she had them in the colder months and I didn't have any idea she was pregnant... she always has such a round little pot belly on her its hard to tell. This pregnancy has had me on pins and needles hoping things go ok this time. Im sure she is pregnant since I haven't noticed her heat cycles at all (shes one you can usually tell), she gets very agitated when you try to touch her teats/udder and this mare usually loves her underbelly rubbed (cant get enough of it), the forefront of her udder is swelling and her teats feel a little fuller, her round belly has now elongated so she looks thin but at a side view her belly still dips.
The sire is a 30 inch silver bay, named Napoleon (for good reason lol). And Miss kitty should be due, between April 15th to May 22nd or longer so really she should be due any day.
Here are some pictures of my girls!
