I went to the Midwest Horse Fair on Saturday (4/21) and boy was that an experience! Not only did we learn a bundle about horses in general, but we got to meet a few Curly enthusiasts. It is a shame I didn't bring a camera with me, but it was definitely beneficial to our knowledge of the Curls. I got to see to outstanding stallions in the stud barn who not only had gorgeous curls and conformation, but the breeders even let kids in the stalls to pet them and they looked to enjoy it. Which, of course, was just like a typical Curly.
On Sunday I snapped a few pictures of Tenakee and Scarlet. Again these aren't really to show anything, just more for the sake of an interesting update. Also there are some mares that are due any day now at a farm down the road from us. So when they are born I will probably put some pictures to get everyone through this tough wait. ;3
The foal seems to have moved so it is more noticeable when looking at Tenakee from the front and back, and her bags are filling up a bit and are squishier to the touch. There isn't much wax on them, and a little milk comes out if you gently squeeze. Her tail head is getting softer, and she seems to be loosening up. So hopefully she is getting closer(:
Just regularly scheduled changes I guess? She is still pretty loose but decided that nothing is going to happen for a while. She ate less of her grain yesterday which she usually gobbles it all up, but she was just waiting by gate so I let her back out. After going to a couple shows now we have a list of people who want me to email them pictures when the baby is born. Trust me, there will be plenty pictures. Just need a baby! But in the meantime, some of our friends had one of their four mares foal. A cute leopard filly! She is absolutely stellar. She was born out in a nice pasture with other mares and has been doing well. Another mare should be foaling soon, too.
Two more mares foaled last night and this morning. Hopefully I can get out there and take pictures to share. Waiting for Tenakee is hard but seeing all those cute foals definitely helps.(: Posted via Mobile Device
