This time I knew what I was getting into though, and luckily I have the history on this girl, and she not a maiden, AND top it all off... she's VERY VERY gentle and broke... Like so broke I would let my 4 year old on her. I bought her from a kid in oklahoma, she was already fat and healthy and VERY pregnant... (I will post pics in a minute and you can tell me how far off you think she is)... he told me she is about a month off (almost 2 weeks ago). Her only downfall is she has no papers. She is bred to his grey stud horse, they head and heel off him and he has the best disposition ever, and he is big and stout with great confirmation. He said he did have papers, but when he bought him the owner was supposed to send them in the mail and they never made it (typical). Anyway, instead of breeding my "grade" mare to another "grade" horse and maybe things not turning out so well next time (as they did with Evie), I went ahead and got Lady. She has had foals before, and all were well and everything went smoothly, (which I know doesnt necassarily mean that will be the case again)... but I guess now I have baby fever.
For everyone that knows baby Evie: She is AWESOME! She is the most affectionate little filly EVER! She loves to be scratched everywhere! Her ears, nose, back, belly, butt.... and she even lets me pick up her feet... and she's only 2 weeks old! When she sees me coming she runs to the fence. She runs and plays chase with my dog. Sometimes she moves like a little reiner... she gets to going so fast, then tucks her butt up under her and slides her back feet... almost sits right down on her little butt to stop, she even gets excited and spins off her back legs! Its the cutest thing I've ever seen. Anyway. I will shut up about my baby now and post pics of Lady.
