Hey folks! I am Mary and we own 4 beautiful horses. We have been taking in some rescue horses this year and have one on property now that is preggers. She is an adorable 10 year old sorrel mare that stands only about 14 hands, just beautiful!!!
Well we have had her for about 2 months now and even being in foal we have been able to fatten her up and she has a great shine to her. I have been pretty concerned about this foal because she was neglected but I have great hopes that all is going to be fine. She seems to have come along very nicely this past couple of months with her pregnancy.
She started bagging up about a month ago and I noticed last week that her belly had "dropped". Saturday I found that she had waxed over and tonight when I checked on her she was panting and her vulva was totally relaxed. I am thinking (especially with the full moon coming) we are going to have a baby any time now.
This is exciting and we are anxious to meet our new friend. We have no idea what she was bred to but there were over 30 horses that were rescued from this property and many had foals and were in foal. A lot of the babies were palomino's and a couple were buckskins and bays. It will be interesting to see what we get with our little gift!!
Keep your fingers crossed for us.. been a long time since I had a foal in my bunch!!!
