Wow, another week passed already! Is it just me or is time being sucked into a vortex somewhere?
Quinoa is doing great, no changes yet except getting ever larger. She has finally accepted that she is now living in the preg pen and has stopped trying to pull our fences over. For a while there she would follow me along the fence from my door to the barn as if to say, "Hey! I think you forgot I was in here, this isn't my pen!"
As I was taking pictures this morning I saw the foal moving around. I put my hand up to her belly and BAM! A little foot poked out and jabbed me twice! I was so excited!! (and no, I did not get a little teary, why would you ask that? .......*sniff*)
Still not much to report, she has officially passed the nine month mark now so she is heading down the homestretch. Next time I'll post a picture of her udder for comparison, although her teats are still so teeny tiny right now that it's hard to imagine them supporting a foal! Preference is the mare behind her in one of the pictures, she is the other mare due on March 1st two weeks after Quinoa.
