Subbing...fingers and toes crossed that she has a 100% healthy foal.

@Drifting Shadow - ROFL! I would have thought the same thing! Sadly, from what I've seen of that show, I don't expect much more for that poor kid.

Just want to add to roundpen's comment, an N/H HYPP horse is still a crapshoot. You can do all the right things and have the horse seize every week, or you can pay no mind and it can live it's whole life without an episode. You can *try* and manage it, but there is never a gaurantee. Curse all the idiots who keep breeding N/H horses.

^^^^^This is why I won't deal with N/H horses anymore. I used to groom for a BNT and had one too many horses fall on top of me while I was learning the hard way about this disease.

If the foal is clear and a filly, I'll have a good hard look at her and see what I think. The door would be open for a real nice filly but I'll have to really look at her hard. A colt will not be kept regardless, but if he's clear I won't geld him immediately if I feel he has stallion potential. N/H, he'll be gelded as soon as possible.

I'm going to add Curse the idiots who keep breeding Frame to Frame and accepting that 25% of the time you'll have to kill a newborn within hours of its birth as acceptable odds.

I hate HYPP and what it does to a horse but a lot of N/H horses go on to live healthy lives with minimal impact on them from the disease. But OLWS is such a TOTAL crap shoot, death or life, that I really have a hard time keeping my hands at my sides when I see someone KNOWINGLY making that cross. And many halter people find that N/H & OLWS is FINE with them, and continue to breed this way over and over.

Thanks Annie! I'm a little superstitious about naming foals before they're born. I deliberately don't think about names and I make myself think of other things if I start.

Honey Boo's registered name is Bright As A Star, dad is Obvious Fancy Gun, so I'll play around with combinations related to that. Barn name though, baby will name itself, they always do! I have a Diva and a Khrome and those names FIT them incredibly well. So we'll just have to see.

Hey, I got a Khrome! LOL
I can't name a foal before it's born, either. I have names that I like, but they need to fit first. Registered names are always fun. LOL

I just can't help myself....with those names, Obviously Bright would be a great name for the baby!

Ok, pics from today. She is finally starting to look a little bit prego. My Arabians would be doing the "Broodie Under Full Sail Waddle" by now but Boo is just starting to look like she MIGHT be carrying something around in there.

Just to give you an idea how much bigger than my other horses she is, she's wearing an 84" blanket.

My largest mare, Peppermint Patti, is 3/4 Saddlebred 1/4 Arab, 16.2 HH and she only wears a 78". The Arab stallion (now gelding, I keep forgetting) only wears a 75". Skippy the 3 y.o. QH stallion is 15.1 HH and he's wearing a 78" and still growing.

LOL, I took a face on shot because it seems like I only get pics when she's face down in a feed bucket.....j

Hay WS, that's little Mr Khrome in the background of the face forward shot. Can't really see all his chrome but it's there.

LOL, I'm thinkin' along the lines of Obvious Heffah if it's a she and anything like her mom.
