Hello everyone! I just started searching for horse forums today! I was looking to share in everyone's (including myself) foaling journey!
I have a cute buckskin AQHA mare by The Flashy KingXBoogies Flashy JacXHollywoodjac86 out of a daughter of Little Tequilla LenaXSmart Little Lena
She is in foal to a son of a AAA race horse who has proven offspring and out of a superior AQHA barrel racing mare for an April 1st foal!!! She is currently 275 days and is not showing much.
We here in Texas are going through a bit of a hay shortage with the drought, so she is not getting free choice hay. She receives 2 flakes of alfalfa and 1 1/2 scoops of grain twice a day with weight gain and mare and foal supplements. She was just started on the supplements going into her third trimester!
She is a cute little mare. I completely trained her myself. She has about 90 rides on her in almost two years, which have been very erratic(sp?). She and I competed in an Extreme Cowboy Challenge last summer and actually came in 1st overall in novice horse, winning a buckle, and 2nd overall in novice rider, making her earning close to $150 in winnings! I am extremely proud of this mare. She is by far the best minded horse I've ever ridden and incredibly smart.
Here are some pics taken today, let me know what you think!
And a few pics taken at different points in her life, just for fun!!!
She is a great little mare and is a blast to ride! I still ride her as she shows no discomfort and I have no place to lunge her (my roundpen is either extremely hard or too wet and sloppy!).
I'm really wanting to place a cam in her stall. Does anyone know what to buy and which program to stream through? This is my first foal since I was 16, lol.
On Josie's foal heat, if she is checked out and ok by the vet, she will be bred to AQHA reiner RC Fancy Step, then I probably won't breed her for a few years and get to riding her. She is the mare my children will ride (if I ever have any, 21 is wayyyy too young, lol) and will stay with me forever!
