At least you know for sure now though!

Wouldn't it be something if they were born on the same day???

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. She lost her baby. The vet came out and checked about 3 or 4 weeks ago (I think) and broke the bad news. I'm still kind of upset about the whole thing. But as he said, I got her too late to actually be able to help her actually produce a healthy baby. She was bone thin when I got her in November. He said that as poor and out of shape as she was that it was pretty inevitable. The way I'm looking at it is that if it was to be, it would have been. At least I still have her!!!

Now, I'm just considering just buying a colt at some point. I not sure I want to put her through another pregnancy and risk losing her and the baby.

Of course, I'm waiting for Indy. Hoping she might find it in her heart to sell Freyja's baby ;) **In my dreams** LOL

Thank you littlekitty. And yeah, I'm very happy with Rosie. She looks so much better since I got her back in November. I've started working her on a regular basis now. She's starting to muscle up a little bit in the back. I'm just hoping that her hips start filling out a little more as she builds more muscle. The previous owner had 20 some head of horses Her husband had been injured, and they couldn't afford to feed them the way that they needed to be fed. Not to mention the only one's that they really took the time to work and actually take care of were the one's that they were planning on showing this year. I wish I could have taken more of them.
