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.
