Talking The official when will Ace foal thread **Foal arrived!!*- Update Post #1054

Quick back story for those who don't know.

I bought Ace a year ago, scanned and confirmed in foal to FSF Jesse James
One of the main reasons I bought her, I bought her sight unseen on recommendation from someone I trust and to be honest was a little disappointed in her at first



But she soon won me over, she is just the sweetest girl to work with, such a nice nice mare. In August she was found in raging standing heat to Alto my stallion



I had her scanned in September, and the vet thought it was 'more likely' that she was in foal to Alto, but didn't seem certain, but I accepted that we were expecting a Aralinger, and although disappointed it wasn't the end of the world.

In January she suddenly exploded into this



And I thought we were on track for a May baby, and she seemed to be making progress that way, but no baby.

Fast forward to today, she is either 420 days to Jesse, unlikely but not impossible, or 330 days to Alto.

She is not making any progress toward foaling, apart from slowing down somewhat, here she is









The questions are:

When will she foal?
What color?
Colt or filly?
Whose the daddy?

Can I be cheeky and ask why you were disappointed with her? Just from the photos - she looks to be in remarkably better condition now overall (pregnant aside , just looking at her as a whole) than when you first got her. I quite like her looking at the more recent photos.

Poor Ace, that baby better fall out soon!!

Either way, can't wait to see cute baby pics. Though it feels like waiting, and waiting, and waiting.......

C'mon Ace!!!

ETA, oh, guesses. Guessing bay, filly, and out of Alto. :)

This is one of the pics that were part of her sales package



I was expecting to pick up a substantial, solidly built mare. When we arrived to pick her up I saw this sorry looking sway backed mare who didn't look anything like the 15hh mare that I was expecting, instead of the mare in the pic,I saw this



If I hadn't already paid for her I may have walked at that point. We took her four hour journey home and my new crazy mad arab got off the trailer and looked around with this beautiful calm demeanor,



And I was already half in love. She really is the nicest mare, I rode her for a while last year and she is a blast, my first arab, and if they were all like her I would gladly swap a few of my other horses for more like her.

I don't know Arabs at all, but am curious what the "FSF" is in Jesse's breeding. Assuming a well-known farm? But again, this isn't my world...

LOL, keep the bay filly guesses coming, that is what I have ordered if we all say it maybe it will come true.

Yup, FSF stands for Fern Spring Farms, that's who bred him.
