I am going to refrase(sp?) what I wrote.
She does know what to do with herself, but that night the baby would not stop moving, and she couldn't walk around to 'settle the baby down'. So, I guess what I was trying to say is that she didn't know what to do because she was in the cross ties and wanted to walk around..
Anyway, thank you. I have been lunging her regularly to keep her in shape(walk trot only).
I am hoping for a colt, but with some white on his face, I don't care about legs, socks are too hard to keep clean. I would like the baby to be Sonya's colour, but a bit darker.
I know what is going to happen though. The foal is going to be a filly, plain ol bay, with no white, and it is going to finish out to be the same height and build as Sonya.
And no, this was not planned. If I had ever decided to breed her(which I probably would'nt have, I would have bred her to something more her size, like a paint or a qh, or maybe an appy. This breeding is too much of a difference for me. A 17hh+ draft to a 14.2 hh grade pony. Weird combo. I had a.... nightmare I guess you could call it, that the foal turned out to have mommy's body and mane and tail, daddy's legs and head, and everyone was making fun of the poor baby. I have been worried that it wouldnt have the right proportions ever since.
Definatley not breeding Sonya after this baby tho.
