Thanks guys!!! I'm planning on keeping this foal to be a nice little show prospect, but if it is a colt and not stallion quality, I'll be gelding him and finding him a home where someone will show him!! I really want a filly to retain for my breeding program. I'm planning on breeding to top stallions, so every generation only gets stronger. I didn't know that CCH! I guess the foal will be upset, because Ill be registering it asap with a super cute name, hopefully!!!
Josie is doing great, although my bud has her horse and we have my mom's 2 goats in there with her, so they're being grain thieves!
I'm hoping to get them out SOON, but haven't had the time or inclination to build a goat run in this dang summer session in the nursing program. We had an entire 6 weeks to do a Pediatrics class that should have taken an entire Fall semester.
She has learned a new trick although I didn't get any awesome pics of it, since I took the pics myself! She now has skills such as give kisses, bow, lay down, flex (without any queue other than a finger pressed in her side), and will now paw and stand up on a prop! I want to eventually get her to where she can stand on a prop with all four feet like some of the trick horses can, although I'm not going to try that right now until I research how to teach her
On a slightly more negative note, I haven't been riding her very much at all this year and she is being a brat about flexing and riding with her head level with her poll, but I don't ride her enough to put that consistency on her to get her to make that a habit
Anyways, pics!! She has gotten a slight belly on her but I'm unsure whether its from hay or the foal. The mare with her has a bigger hay belly than Josie so it leaves questions to be answered!! lol.
