I will be praying for a healthy foal... I can't believe they would even consider this breeding never mind do it! People really are freaking morons.

Here's hoping for a healthy foal! You have a beautiful mare there. Why any one would cross her so stupidly is beyond me! All the best and she is looking fab!

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Thanks everybody! I appreciate your kind thoughts and will keep updating this thread as she progresses and starts looking more and more close to delivery. She is looking more and more pregnant, she's just going to be one of those big bodied ladies that nobody knows is pregnant til she has a foal at side!

I have to share a laugh that Honey Boo gave me tonight. My husband had gone out a day or so ago and checked her blanket to make sure everything was where it should be. Now, he's a kind man and he likes the horses but he's not what I call a horseman and he's not a natural with them, doesn't click instantly like I do with most horses. It frustrates him no end, but it is what it is. Honey is a bluffer. She'll pin her ears and look blue death at you and when you stand there, look back at her and say, "OH NO Honey, you Dittent!" she backs down right away. She has NEVER offered to do a mean or nasty thing. So, he decided to check her udder to see if she needed cleaning, or if she might be starting to bag, whatever. UH HUH....Honey said, "yeah..........NO" and gave him ears and a cocked hip. Mind you, she didn't pick up a foot, didn't actually cock her LEG, just shifted her weight from one foot to the other. He told me she threatened him. Uh, NO she didn't. He , who has not spent any real time with her since I bought her, walks up, straightens the blanket and grabs for her teets.....Ya think I'd tolerate that from a stranger? Not so much.

So today I walked up to her, petted her face, kissed her between her eyes, told her she was my "Boo X2", which is kind of my sweet talk name for her, and scritched all her favorite spots while I ran my hands all over her. I finished up with cleaning between her udders and she never twitched. He wouldn't talk to me all through dinner. Might have been because I was snickering at him.....

But geez, you'd think after 20 years he'd know not to walk up to a pregnant woman and grab her personals and expect her to tolerate it!

Ha! Makes me think of my mare. She doesn't care too much for anyone except me. When my mom or sister would tell me she was bad, I couldn't figure it out because she's always a perfect angel for me. It's funny how they pick their people, although I'm sure if your husband spent more time with Miss Honey, she would warm up to him.

She would, she's a very easy going horse. He'll warm up to her too, she's just kind of big and intimidating to him, so he's going to see all kinds of boogers when he's dealing with her. And since she is a bluffer, she's got him on the run.

Ah subbing! Lots of prayers, hoping for a very healthy foal!

What a beautiful mare. THAT DREADED LETHAL WHITE!!! I have an overo mare, who likely carries frame. Will be testing her before I even consider breeding... I have every finger and toe crossed for a healthy non-OLWS or HYPP baby for you. And may karma give those breeders what they've got comin'. Gambling with the life of a future foal is simply inexcusable.

I so agree with you! I'd rather not breed if I had to be so careless and callous.
