Well, we went and got an ultrasound and a trim for Josie today! She is confirmed 75 days in foal. I was planning on getting a pic, but the foal wasn't very clear, so I didn't bother, lol.
Doc was showing me where she was and asking if I could see it. I replied no just as the foal bounced all around in there for a couple seconds. It was kind of humorous when he asked me if I could see it now.
He said she had a strong pregnancy and is doing great!
She also got a trim from someone more knowledgeable (or perhaps just cares a bit more) and is super balanced with her barefoot trim, much better than the "slap and tack" approach of my latest farrier. He definitely earned himself another customer!!!
With all that being said I didn't grab any pics from today, but thought I'd include a couple taken in the past few weeks since I posted last! Yes, Im aware that her halter doesn't fit correctly in the hat pics, my bud brought me the wrong one to grab her out of the arena, and it suited its purpose just fine for the 20 minutes we played with her.
We found a wild frog and desensitized her to that - she kept trying to shake him off when he approached her withers, lol.
She also now paws on command, getting ready for her to learn to "step up" onto a platform and stand there with first 2 feet, then 4. Im pretty excited!!!
Forgot to mention! I am looking into going ahead and breeding Josie again in the next 2 breeding seasons to a reiner, anyone have any ideas on who would suit her beautifully? Probably looking at 5k breeding fees or less. Would love any and all opinions with any pics and links! I suck at looking stallions up, lol. I'm looking for something that will be super marketable if it is a colt, I plan on retaining the fillies. Thanks!
