Sequoya's Foaling Thread{{{Update-sadly the foal didn't make it}}}

Well, I figured now is as good a time as any to start a thread to record Sequoya’s progress in her foaling journey. :)

But first,some info.

Sequoya - 6 yrs. Old (2006)
-maiden mare
-½ Saddlebred,3/8 Friesian,1/8 Arab
- she has Color Command and endurance racing Arab
bloodlines on her dam’s side, and imported Friesian and
Saddlebred bloodlines on her sire’s side
-bay tobiano
-15.1 hh
“Quoya” was born and raised here on our farm. She has a wonderful mind and beautiful personality to go along with her pretty looks, and is one of those all around truly great horses that is a joy to be around and will try anything for you. She has some great blood in her, but unfortunately a lot of the info on her predigree has been lost due to people moving, losing papers,ect. She has never been shown, despite people wanting to buy her for that purpose,as we chose instead to keep her and use her for pleasure riding and as a working farm horse,a role which she seems to enjoy.

She was pasture bred,turned out with the stud from Jun.11-Jul.25/11,which I believe puts her due between May 16-Jun.29 (340 days).
It’s driving me crazy not having an exact due date,but it seems no mare is going by her due date this year anyways! :) Hopefully she'll be the type that will show lot of signs and give some warning.. She is handling her first pregnancy with her usual sweet attitude.So far.

Mbar Jack Jeans - 5 yrs. (2007)?
-AQHA registered Quarter Horse
-he is out of a granddaughter of Two Eyed Twister,
who is a son of Two Eyed Jack,and by MBar Smokin
Bo,a son of the AQHA champion stallion,I'll SmokeYa
- dark copper sorrel
-15.2-15.3 hh
I have had the pleasure of working and being around “JR”, and what a great young stud he is! Built like a QH is meant to be and with a gorgeous hip,he is smart as a whip and hard working, but super quiet.Being young, he has only has a couple crops of babies on the ground,but boy,do they look good! I especially like, and have also worked with, his grandpa,I’ll SmokeYa,also know as Howard,who has many championships to his name and definitely has the wow factor.JR seems to have inherited a number of things from Howard,and I’m excited to see which of his traits come out in this baby.

In regards to the baby,I am hoping for a tobiano filly,but will love whoever comes out. :) What the baby will grow up to be used for will depend somewhat on what characteristics of the different breeds show up more, but we have a lot of options in that regard. I have crossed these bloodlines in the past (with the addition this time of I’ll SmokYa’s) with good results,and can't wait for this baby!

Definitely look forward to pictures of mom and dad and baby when it's here. Cross our fingers for a filly..I'm hoping my 2 will be fillies too. I am also hoping for some color since this is the first time to have Tobiano on the farm. I've always bred and knew the color of the foal down to the exact color or 1 of 2..this time it's a whole window of colors.

I don't know much on the saddlebred or arabian breeds but she def. Shows the arab head in that last picture.

And in March. A little more growth through the midsection and the tiniest change in her udder,flaps of skin starting to appear when she would normally be tucked up tight.

These were taken the beginning of April.She has definitely gotten that "preggo look" now,although it's hard to show in pics due to her markings,the white around her middle seems to throw of the depth perception or something. :) And her bag is certainly starting to develop more.
