Foal due soon, maiden mare.
My beautiful mare Rem, is due with her first baby in a 3 weeks. I am a wreck and totally excited at the same time. This mare is my pride and joy. She was my first futurity prospect and was everything that I wanted in a mare. She was top pick with my first trainer (One of Canada's top trainers) but I pulled her because I felt he was putting winning before anything else, he was hard and harsh on her. I pulled her, put her with an up and coming trainer, who also agreed she was a super talanted mare. I pulled her two weeks before the futurity because I felt her mind was being compromised in order to keep up (She was 10 months behind other futurity horses) She has always been a great minded mare but towards the end she was not the mare I wanted to own. I pulled her from training and used her as a ranch horse. I feel quilty that she never made it as a show pony but she did her part here on the ranch, teaching my very non horse friendly son how to ride and gave him the confidence to ride again. She has been such a go to horse here on the ranch for every beginnner that wants to ride a pony. She has been a joy to have around here but I know she would have been dynamite in the show pen.
