This should be deliveries....Late at night, bound to make a mistake or two

Oh wow, that's definitely a surprise. I'm just going to guess that you'll get a cute & rotten little one, it seems to be a filly year though.

Keeping in mind I know absolutely nothing about minis, with regards to exercise we've always rode/worked our broodies up to the point they are very big & grumpy. The last I rode Lacey was about 6 weeks ago, she foaled early this week. Could have rode her longer but saddle no longer fit well and riding her bareback was like doing the splits lol! I did still lunge her lightly each day. Fit muscles help with foaling.

Look forward to meeting baby Sour!

Whoa! Miss Olympic driving pony is a mama-to-be! I also did a double take...I was like "Maybe someone else has a horse named Sour...?"

Can't wait to see baby!

Can't wait to see the cutie! As for it being a filly year, that's apparently not true in Texas! Out of five foals born at my breeder's, only one was a filly! I was hoping for a filly, but I got little Henny instead! Can't complain, though, cause he is just the cutest little guy.

I never re-posted, sorry xD I was so ticked off about that post...I put a lot of research into it and ofcourse didnt save it, so I'm having to re-look everything up. *sigh*

Here he is!

Lilliput Acres Show Me the Bucks (Spider)
Lilliput Acres Miniature Horses

The website doesnt give a huge amount of information on him, but its the only one I could find. Sounds like he's pretty versitile, which is nice. I love Sour to death and she's starting to make a very nice driving pony, but she wouldn't stand a chance at a halter show. He has some pretty nice babies too, which is nice. I wish they had him color tested though.

Here's his pedigree- Lilliput Acres Show Me The Bucks Miniature

and what show record I can find of him:
1999 AMHR National Champion Stallion Foal 30" and under ( Unanaimous)
1999 AMHR National Junior CHampion Stallion-Under
1999 AMHR Reserve Grand Champion Stallion-Under (Unanimous)
2000 AMHR National Champion Youth Stallion-Under ( Unanimous)
2000 AMHR Top Ten Amateur Stallion-Under
2000 AMHR Top Ten Futurity

(Not shown in open classes in 2000 )
2001 AMHR Top Ten Futurity (only class shown in that year)
  • 2002 AMHR Reserve National Champion Futurity Pleasure Driving-Under
  • 2002 AMHR Top Ten Ladies Pleasure Driving-Under
  • 2002 AMHR Top Five 3 Year Old Futurity Halter Stallion-Under
Pretty nice boy, from the looks of it ^_^

Sky- thats very possible o.o I suppose I'd be a bit grumpy if my preggo-belly was being squeezed too ;)

MH and equiniphile - thanks for the information. I'll probably just ground drive her and maybe do a few leisure rides in the cart with her until a week or two before her due date, and continue to lunge her walk-trot. I'd hate to see all of that conditioning go to waste. When should I start working her again after she foals? Ideally I'd still like to use her in our fundraising month in October, but if I'm going to do that she needs atleast another two solid months in training.

Vanilla- haha, nope! Unfortunately its Sour, the one and only x] Oh boy!

Kayella- Whoo! I'm definitely hoping for a colt, although I don't be devestated by a filly. I just have enough mares to handle already and a nice little gelding would be lovely!

He has a 25% chance of being homozygous black since both parents are heterozygous black. The foals they have pictured all seem to be black based (hard to tell with grey coats what their base coat was). He is very nice looking

Well, at least they picked a nice looking stud.

Thanks for telling me that SunnyDraco! I'm hopeless with colors, and I'll admit it right now XD I'd love a nice little bay with plenty of white, but ofcourse thats just wishful thinking. I'll be happy with anything that doesn't have Sour's infamous stubborn streak and is healthy.

And yeah, I was worried that they'd bred her to a donkey or a horse that qualified as a donkey when I first heart...I'm glad theres atleast a chance that the baby will be decent ;)

For this interested, Sour's Sire is our own stallion, Montigo Bay who was fairly sucessful in the show ring as well. He's hetrozygous bay. And although I cant remember her Dam's full name (not owned by us) and I dont know her pattern, she was a chestnut paint. The Sour is just plain old chestnut as you guys know, with four or five white quarter and dime-sized spots (dont know where those came from, and she seems to be getting more as she gets older) and a mealy muzzle/weird black tail. So who know what color the baby will be xD

As I promised guys, TUMMY PICTURES!

This was after driving, so excuse any sweat marks that might still be showing. She also seemed to sort of 'suck it all in' (not sure if theres a term for that or not) while and after driving though, so she isn't as big as she normally is. The baby is definitely leaning to one side though xD

Funny...she's only 9 months into this and already I can BARELY fit her between the shafts of the cart O_o

Aghhh. Her tail is going to be SO hard to keep out of the way.

So yeah ;) pictures don't really show it very well. Looking at her in real life though, she extends out horizontally like crazy xD its rather funny.
