C'mon Frejya!!! I am definitely getting baby fever big time, don't know how you stand the tension!!
*lol* I'm not. After a very frustrating night, including the vet being out here for four hours (getting to know him pretty well. Shame he isn't single!
) and Freyja showing every textbook sign of going into labor, the vet finally concluded that the baby had likely shifted out of foaling position since the ultrasound, since it has been so long, and was probably getting back in position.
I was so exhausted and drained after last night, I took the day off foal watch, had my neighbor peek on Freyja from time to time and keep my cell phone handy, and got myself off the property for a good five hours. Got my hair done, got my car tuned up. *lol* So no, I'm really NOT handling the tension very well! Today she's fine. Absolutely normal. I just put her back up in the barn for the evening, now I need to go slog through muddy pastures and find out where she discarded the tail bag she'd had on.
The world's most beautiful mare (no offense Frejya) is at school right now for her 5th season of trying to get her pregnant. I have been working with her for about a year now and we have a pretty good relationship going,
I am in love with her and pray that her owner will see she doesn't want to have a foal and he should just give her to me LOL! Her name is Matika and she is a Selle Francais. Most gorgeous horse ever to live, I want to see a foal out of her so much even if it means her owner will realize he should hang on to her. So far she has gotten pregnant 3 times and slipped the pregnancy every time. When she was first bred the owner cheaped out of the 21 day confirmation and missed twins. She aborted at 7 months and has been unable to catch ever since. *WHY* is it that mares you don't want bred catch when a stally just looks at them and the ones who really need to pass on their confo just stubbornly refuse to be mothers. ARRRRGHH. No point to this post, sharing my joy and frustration with Ms. Matika, the closest thing I have to my own mare. =)
Aww, you will have to get pictures of her, I'd love to see her. I assure you Freyja takes no offense *lol* I'll be hoping and sending pregnancy vibes for Matika!
