Chilly's Foaling Thread! Due: Mid-March 2013 **Foal has arrived!**

Whelp, I figured the new year might as well be the beginning to Chilly's foal watch thread.

Chilly was bred via live cover from April 12th to the 16th. She is due mid-March 2013. March 20th will be the mark of 340 days. It's coming very quickly!

The sire is an Appendix AQHA. He's got foundation lines on the top, and racebred TB on the bottom. He's Grulla, LWO neg, HYPP N/N, E/e, D/d. This guy is actually 1/2 brother to my other mare, Rumor. (Same dam) So Rumor will be a legitimate Auntie.

Chilly will be 12 years old when she foals and is a maiden. She is handling pregnancy well, and is actually a bit better mannered. She always used to have this little attitude, just a tiny bit to let you know she's a brat, and since being bred, she has been on her best behavior. She enjoys butt scratches, boobie rubs and lots of FOOD!

In the past week, I have noticed that her teats are a little larger then they used to be. Twice the size that they were. She used to have nickle sized teats, they are now about the size of a quarter. This is one of my daily checks that I do since she will push against you until you scratch her belly. Goofy girl.

She is 1260 pounds to date, and growing! She is 262 days today. So we still have 80ish days to go. This pregnancy is going by very quickly! I have a few things left to do to prepare for the foal, but overall, I'm excited and ready! My vet thinks that she is going to hold on until April due to her being a maiden, but, you just never know!

Color Coat Calculator says we have the following options for the foal...
25% Chestnut
25% Red Dun
12.5% Bay
12.5% Black
12.5% Bay Dun
12.5% Grulla

And of course, 50-50 chance of getting an overo pattern. Chilly carries Frame and Sabino for sure. And there is a good chance that she carries Splash, but has not been tested. Her Agouti status is also unknown.

I'd love to have a Bay Dun loudly marked Frame/Sabino colt. But anything healthy and well conformed will do. But, I'm likely to end up with a chestnut since 75% of our horses are red based. LoL.

The sire has only thrown 1 red based foal, the rest have been grullas, bays and blacks and 1 bay dun. He throws a lot of booty on his babies too! And HEIGHT!

Okay, Okay, Enough rambling. Here are pictures...
1: March 2012, 1 month before breeding.
2: Late May 2012. 6 weeks.
3: July 2012. 3 months.
4: October 2012. 6 Months. Starting to really show and can feel the baby moving. Finally.
5: Early November.
6: Early November body shot.
7: Early December.
8: Another Early December.
9: January 1st!
10: January 1st Again.

Now that I've created this thread, I'm sure time will just drag on and on and on!

The foal will actually be registered with the APHA since Chilly is a Paint. But sire is a AQHA.

Wow! It seems like I was JUST reading about her getting bred and thinking how cute the baby-daddy-to-be is!
How time flies.

I'm super looking forward to seeing this baby!

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

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