I thought I would start a thread for my expected foals of 2012. It will be kind of fun to document
The mares torment me already when they really should be trying much harder to get me to like them. The foals will be by my stallion, Smokes Navajo.
1st mare - Squeaks (1996 AQHA career broodmare & general dictator / motion sensitive alarm system)
Was due about March 29th, however she aborted sometime between her 7th & 8th month. Very sad! I was looking forward to that foal as a potential cutter. He certainly would have been if he had 1/2 his dam's "character"
2nd mare - Big Mare (2000 AQHA career broodmare)
Due on or about April 3rd. Big Mare earned her name from her size, she is quite leggy.

(Photo from 2-11-12. Excuse the floor. The mares feel it is their duty to redecorate the barn floor upon entry, especially if they can replicate cow patties)
3rd mare - Rondee (2007 APHA maiden mare)
Due on or about June 6th. Rondee was bred late because she had some health issues when she arrived. Very excited for this foal as I just received the results today that she is N/SW1, so I'm hoping for a very loud future cutter.

Well. That is what I have for now. Hopefully I can keep this updated, but you will all have to beat me with wet noodles to get more photos taken & posted.
**I tried to adjust the photo sizes, but it doesn't seem to want to stick, so sorry about that.
