You know, I always look at things like this as a message. I have been looking for a bay mare for my stallion. I want athletic, well known pedigree, etc, etc. I went to a sale where I've had good luck before. Got outbid every time. Then I went to a retirement dispersal, I've been real lucky there too, got my stallion at a retirement sale. Got WAAAAAYYYYYY out bid there, like somebody paid $240,000 for the mare I liked. Let's suffice it to say that I'm not even in the 10% category of that kind of money. Next sale, I had a horse get injured and a big vet bill, couldn't go. I'm thinkin' God's telling me, "Not now, maybe not this year.". I've decided to listen.

All that's a long way around saying, maybe this is the foal you're supposed to breed and it just took you this long to realize it.

Josie got her 14 day check and is positive for pregnancy!! The vet said its a nice follicle and she'll check in another 14 days for the fetal heart tone. I'm so excited she finally took, even if I did have to revise my plans to get her bred!!

I know it is early days, and it doesn't matter as long as mum and bub are healthy, but are you hoping for any particular colour or markings for your foal?

Congrats, fingers crossed for a happy outcome!

Thank you! I got on a pc to get everything done, so here he is! He is actually looking tons better than he was and still looks rough considering what he could have been, unfortunately. Figured yall would still love to see him though =) According to his owner, he is still just as gentle and friendly as ever!
