    Miley's Very Early Baby Bump/Foaling Thread

    I just can't contain myself any longer. I'm going to start an early "baby bump" thread that will eventually turn into a "foal watch" thread. It's rather long, but I have to fill you in on the past 8 months, so hang with me guys lol

    Miley made us work to get her bred. The stud she was being bred to got injured last breeding season live covering, so his owner wanted to keep this season easy on him and only ship semen. She cycled perfectly in March, was AI'd, didn't take. Her next cycle was really funky. She stayed at a 22mm follicle for almost a week, and then shot to a 55mm follicle in less than 48 hours. She was bred, and again didn't take. At this point I was getting a little frustrated, but decided to try one more time. She had a textbook cycle....and again no baby

    We decided she must be allergic to the extender, so the stallion owner (my co-worker) agreed we could attempt to live cover. Apparently Miley just needed to meet her baby daddy! She was in raging heat and stood like a champ for him. We ended up leaving them together for 3 days....they were obsessed with each other. Stallion owner said she was covered at least 15 times that she saw lol. When they weren't doing the deed, Miley would lick him from head to toe and just fawn over him. Cracks me up.

    The two love birds.

    15 days later, look what we have! SO EXCITED. We decided to put her on regumate just because of how difficult she was to get bred. Better to be safe than sorry!


    We went back at day 25 to check for heart beat. No baby. We searched for 30 minutes and could find absolutely nothing. Her uterus didn't look like it had absorbed the embryo, it still "looked" like she was bred..but there was no baby. I was heartbroken. My vet told me to keep her on regumate for 15 days and we'd recheck her at 40 days JUST to make sure. I took her in at Day 40, expecting to be disappointed with no baby. But look what Miley had been hiding from us A beautiful little blob with a strong heart beat.


    Here is the the baby at 90 days, along with the chunky Mama!




    And finally, here we are at 120 days. (She's 125 days as I write this)

    I started out riding Thoroughbreds and WB's, they will always have special place in my heart Not to mention your girl is GORGEOUS. Wow, she is something else. I cannot wait to see that baby...oh my goodness.

    your girl is lovely... QH's don't half have big bums haha . I think she's having a black colt. Stallion isnt homozygous for colour so its a real guessing game. My girlie is my good mare and horse of a lifetime .

    I hate to be a Debby Downer, but your options for color are chestnut or chestnut splash. So either they'll be solid like mom, or have chrome like dad to some extent (not necessarily the exact same markings), but your foal will be a chestnut.

    Yes, my foal will be a chestnut! (hoping for that splash!)

    But Dee's foal (DeliciousD's mare) may be a black tobi :) We were talking about her mare, not mine :)

    5 months :) She's looking more "full" in her flanks. Not too much of an actual bump, but definitely has the plump glow going on.
