With Chanti's upcoming delivery I thought I'd make a thread so I can post pics and keep people updated. She is bagging up very nicely and her foal is very active. I get a kick out of just putting my hand on her stomach and feeling the baby move. She/he seems to be more active when I feed Chanti grain lol. I am expecting her to foal by April 10 at the very latest but I'm expecting it well before then.
This pic was taken a couple weeks ago. Since then she has ballooned out again since the foal has switched positions again.
And the dad...Sundance
So we are expecting a chestnut foal with stockings and a blaze but it would be awesome if the foal had her Appy characteristics and even nicer if we lucked out and got a color other than chestnut. Chanti's sire was a black, and she has a ton of bay and dun in her lines too but I know the chances of anything other than chestnut are slim lol
Next time I go see them I'm getting new pics. Sundance finally has a long tail!
So far for names we like Chica if it's a filly and I like Cisco, Pecos, Amigo, or Beau (Bo) for a colt. I will probably register the foal with the ISHR so I have been trying to come up with registered names.
Chanti's lines have Mighty Bright, Mighty Go Man, The Executive, Stock Broker, Bright Eyes Brother, Dial Good, Sunny and Mild, Hands Up, High Hand, Joe Bailey, Leo, Hancock, Three Bars, Chicaro. Of course we know nothing about Sundance's lines or even where he came from.
The only registered names I have come up with are for fillies...Sundances Bright Chica and Chantillys Spittin Image if she looks just like her mom.
Suggestions are welcome!
Other colt names I have for consideration are:
Other filly names are:
