    Yay!!!! Make sure you get the contract stating you get a free breeding better safe than sorry is an excellent philosophy, lol. Can't wait to see this cross!

    Just outta curiosity, is there a reason y'all are going to wait a year for it?

    Yes, we are in the process of purchasing our first home right now! It's proving to be a very long and drawn out process, and we really want to focus on just one big life change at once. Caly and Rebel are being boarded with a friend's horses about 10 minutes from where Ryan and I are temporarily located (his parents' house... We greatly appreciate their help with this transition, but I want to be in MY HOUSE!!!) I really want to make Caly's transition to the 10-acre pasture that comes with the house and get her comfortable there before we breed her. Also, I want Caly to be in the best shape possible going into, and during, her pregnancy. The outrageously hot summer and then brutally cold/icy winter we had in Nebraska did a number on her muscle condition. She is working back up very nicely now (since we've moved to a milder part of the country!), but she's not quite where I want her to be and I am making myself be more patient than I'd like to be to make sure everything is as ready as it can be.
    Hope that makes sense... Short and sweet version: We're going through a bunch of big life changes and want everything to slow down again before we jump into pregnant pony status!

    Oh believe me, it is HARD!!!!!!!! But hubby is being the voice of reason and said "ABSOLUTELY NOT IN 2013!!!" He's the smart one in this. Lol! I do completely agree with him, next year is a MUCH better idea. But it's still hard to wait. Caly's right in her prime, so waiting a year won't be too much difference to her. She's turning 9 mid-April, so she'll barely still be 9 when we breed her. So she'll be 10 when baby comes. I don't know if that classifies as an "old" maiden mare, but from my research it seems like people don't worry too much about older maiden mares until they're in their teens? I would be very interested in anyone's thoughts on this!
