HA! They are at the SAME stage then. HOW exciting!!! I just shifted them both to a beautiful wee paddock up the road (for about 6weeks or until she shows signs of being close to foaling; when they will come home)which is incredibly sheltered and they are knee deep in superb horse grass - not a blade of clover in sight!
Persil looked like he could not believe his luck, it even has a pond where he can splosh about. (He LOVES his water games) Merlot continues to look very smug.

Race did you say? LOL Here is Persil and Merlot racing towards me when I went down to kiss them this morning. Owing to the fact I had a friend with me and Persil can count, he was hanging back in case it was a veterinary related visit

Merlot, on the other hand, is just a sucker for cuddles. Look at the size of her compared to Persil!

They are in this paddock (just around the corner from us) which has gorgeous shelter and HEAPS of great grass (no clover) till Merlot is about to foal. Then I will bring them both home. Getting closer now...

OMG I am repeating myself...put that down to depletion of brain cells due to being an 'Expectant Mother'. (of a foal - does that count?)
Sorry peoples.

Merlot, beautiful horse!!! I am partial to red quarter horses, since my favorite boy is a sorrel gelding. Best of luck on a healthy foal. Look forward to seeing pics!

Thanks Brieanna and Justice
Here's todays shots - She is 10 months on now - only a month - 6 weeks to go (that is going by the fact she was 2 weeks late last year)

Of course Persil is involved in these photos too - he simply could not be arsed getting up. After I took these, I sat with him for about 20 mins with his head on my lap while he snored on.
