It has been quite a while since I have posted on this message board but I would like to introduce y'all to my new filly, Sandy. She was born sometime early Saturday, June 18th. Yes, I missed the delivery but she is very healthy and so is momma!
We were using the breeding dates given to us by the previous owner, and therefore thought that our mare Sahara wasn't due to foal until the end of August. Well, I guess the mare was bred before the previous owner put her in the pasture with the stud, because we got a healthy, full term baby at what should of been day 273!! It was certainly a shock to go there to feed in the morning and find this beautiful little girl laying in the back of Sahara's stall.
I'm still trying to figure out where her color came from as her sire is supposedly a Palomino Tobiano and her dam is a Buckskin Tobiano.... the filly is a Red Dun Tobiano!!! Where on earth did the dun come from? I suppose the sire could have it as all the places that would have the dun factor showing on him are white... but I don't really care to be honest.. she's healthy and quite active so that's all that matters!!
Here's some more pics of her I've taken over the last few days... hope y'all enjoy!
