Nilla's Foaling Thread

Okay so since I see a lot of people posting foaling threads and I was requested by someone I decided that I would make one too!

You don't have to read everything it's just little facts about Nilla and I.

Let me give you guys a little background on Nilla. She has half a blue eye and a very faint dorsal stripe on half of her back lol it's weird. I also cut off all of her mane twice in the past year lol that why it's so short. I got her when I was 15 and she was 2 and a half. Her birthday is April 15, 2008. She's a tax day baby lol. Anyways I went to buy a paint mare before I was told Nilla was for sale. I actually had to be convinced into buying her as I was naive and wanted the paint, or so I thought I did. My dad first noticed Nilla following me back and forth in her stall and that's when someone told me she was for sale! And boy am I happy we decided on her. I named Nilla, her real name is Vainilla and I'm hoping to paper her as "Shot of Vanilla" hence my username, I just keep forgetting to send in the papers... Oops..

Nilla and I grew up together, I put her in a trailer for the first time in her life, I visited her every weekend while she was in training for three months (2 hours from my home-- I think my dad wanted to kill me haha) and I was there when they let her out into a huge arena for the first time.

I do trick training with Nilla. She knows how to bow, kiss, say no, smile, pick her leg when I pick up mine(she knows to pick up both legs depending on which leg I pick up), side pass when I cross my legs, back up when I shake my finger and I think that's it.. so far ^__^. We also barrel race, pole bend, ride in gym khanas, dressage, jumping, cattle sort and just now learning to rope and of course just a trail horse :) I'm also starting to work with her on tackless riding because I see all the Liberty riders (if you don't know what that is PLEASE look it up, it's amazing and you're instantly amazed by horse and rider).

OKAY SO BACK TO BEING PREGNANT lol

The sire is a Friesian, his name is Yshka, pronounced "eesh-kuh" lol. He's my trainers horse so I was able to breed for free as long as I helped ride the horses and other events she had planned so I basically worked it off:) all $750 bucks lol

And now to pictures! I'll post pictures of her when I got her and of course others leading up to my fatty :) Get ready for a lot lol and I mean.... A LOT and of course more to come!

Picture #1: Nilla when I first saw her and when she turned 4:)
#2: Over the summer the month before I bred her
#3: 3 months pregnant at a "Parade of Breeds" show
#4: just for fun she was jumping with me lol probably 6 months here
#5: we're barrel racing, this is probably 2 months
#6: 7 months and still rearing and playing lol
#7: She's 4 months <3
#8: the first time I got to "ride her" (this was 2 weeks into training)
#9: Yshka (baby daddy)
#10: Nilla now at a week prior to 8 months :)
Pictures go in order from left to right :)

I hope you all enjoy looking at Nilla as much I do owning her <3
(sorry the pictures are all different sizes, they all came off my phone aka instagram lol if any of you have one I'm @erikaartman and all my pictures are of her lol)
