Honey Boo Boo's Pregnancy Thread

I promised someone that I'd make a new thread about one of my mares who is pregnant and due Feb 14, 2013. Honey Boo Boo or her registered name, Bright As a Star Paint, is an APHA registered Frame Overo mare, born in 2003. She's bred to Obvious Fancy Gun, an APHA stallion who is also Frame Overo.

**Before anyone starts squawking, I did not do this breeding, would not do this breeding. Honey was well in foal before I bought her in late Sept. So we're praying hard for this foal.**

Honey was bred March 9 & 11, 2012, so she's 299 days in foal. If she goes a full 340, she'll deliver around Feb 14.

Here's what she looked like after I'd had her for about 1 month. I took these pics on Oct. 22, 2012.

She was 225 days in foal at the time of the pics.

Boo is built differently than my other mares, she has an extremely deep body and honestly, doesn't look pregnant to me at all. This mare is MASSIVE built, she only stands maybe 15.1 or 2, same as my Arab stallion, but she makes him look really small because of how she's built. Her heart girth is HUGE. If she wasn't totally disinterested in Skippy, my QH stallion, I'd think she had slipped the foal. She's getting bigger, she just doesn't have that huge side to side thing going on.

Pretty girl, but I have quite an aversion to her name. :)

I'm guessing she was vet checked?
Did you name her after that show? LOL

Alex & WS, her barn name was a quick thing that wasn't meant to stick but it did. When I went to pick her up, she gave me 'mare ears' and kind of acted like she wanted to bull me. I didn't know if her previous owner was around and didn't want to do my usual thing of speaking first and having to apologize later because I would have said, "Listen here you F*n Beyotch, fix those ears and get out of my space before I kick your a$$.", which would have of course, offended her previous owner if she heard me. So, I said, "LISTEN HERE Honey Boo Boo......", cos she's big and red and you can tell eating is her favorite past time, and it stuck. She's been Honey Boo ever since.


WS, she was vet checked in foal but I have not confirmed it since I got her. This will sound terrible but I have no interest in the foal so if she was open and showed interest in Skippy, I was good with that. I didn't buy her for the foal. Once I found out that she'd been bred to another frame horse AND he's N/H for HYPP to top it all off.......all I could say was, "Well SH*T, how do you stack the genetic deck against that foal any higher?". So! She's not come back in heat, dammit, and she's getting bigger and I'm not over feeding her. She's been given all the appropriate vaccinations and I have my foaling stall all set up and camera installed for monitoring. She'll foal when she foals and I'm praying like crazy I dodge the Lethal White bullet that the previous owner put on her foal. If we get a foal that can live, then I'll worry about the HYPP thing.

I'm saving the money on the preg check for when the foal is born, if it's OLWS and I have to send it to OSU for euthanasia.

I can just picture you shaking your finger at that kid. I've only seen previews, but it was enough for me.
Well, I'm crossing my fingers for a healthy foal for you! With that due date, it has to be okay, I'm sure.

I'm hoping so! While I'm not interested in keeping the foal, I will raise it, train it and show it, so I can sell it to someone who likes halter a WHOLE lot better than I do. I'm trying to get as far away from halter, in any breed, as I can and focus strictly on nice, sensible riding horses.

I like the mare. Really hoping that you can dodge the lethal white and get N/N. N/H can be very well managed though.
