I love the stud's face! I can't believe she isn't even at 200 days yet... She's huge! Poor girl

We are finally nearing the 200 day mark so getting much closer.
Mara is 199 days today, she has finally stopped getting bigger if anything she is shrinking. I am also adding Gayle as I think she could be in foal as well though I am still not cetain she has gotten big but not fatter and she is more of a suck up now. But even if she isn't you will just have the plessure of seeing cute photos of her. Oh and please excuse the mud the field isn't all like that the hay blow into some of the mud so of course they have to stand in the worst of it.



And now Gayle

I love them too, these two girls are very special, and very happy now as they are getting cool mix and sugar beet as well as hay as Mara is underweight. Very excited now as they are 201 days so not that long to go. Good luck with Marlot.

When you say Horse heavan you mean a muddy slippy wet mess right. It is fine most of the year right now if has been very wet so the fields look like it is the end of winter already so the ones living of the hill are having to have hard food as well as hay which is the first year they have need something more, though it is the first year we have had two in foal mares up there and a yearling. Our Shetland stallion gets rugged no where near as much as this summer and last winter as he spent 6 out of the last 13 months in a stable due to different illnesses and injuries. I would spoil them all and rug them all but because they don't need it mum won't buy them rugs, not that we could really afford to buy all 12 of them multiple rugs and it would be really hard to find rugs to fit the Shetland as just finding headcollors that fit them is next to impossible.

Hopefully, they will be our first Shetland foals and the first foals for this stallion up in Shetland.
