Got a quick snapshot of the lovely lady's wide load with my phone for all to see. She seems to have gotten substantially bigger; this time it seems to be a more round change of appearance. Still very loose and jiggly and milk is very easily expressed. But she's had milk for a while even though she has dried up since her last foal. Hasn't had any wax over it at all. The milk is very white but seems somewhat cloudy. I don't know if we are close or she is just teasing... Pregnant horses seem pretty good at false alarms from what I hear. I was at a clinic for two days so I didn't get to pay much attention to her so whatever changes might have happened seem more definite. The fact that she is holding her head to one side and you can still see all the bump is a pretty big change. Second picture from the day after I got her. Maybe I'm just crazy but I swear she is bigger in person.

I just love curlies (maybe because I have super curly hair, they look like me lol). She's a beauty. Hope all goes well. Dad is very handsome.

Thanks! I find a lot of people can relate to them because they are that imperfect sort of beauty. They just got that underdog X-factor. ;3


Her stomach seems to have dropped even more. I don't even know how it is possible but that poor mare's tummy is just about dragging on the ground. When you look at her from behind you can see her stomach hanging way below her udders. We had a little bit of a grooming session today and trimmed her ungodly long chestnuts even a tad more. We pretty much just played farrier for a while as I just feel bad asking her to do anything when she is in such sorry shape. I have a feeling that she is close, and I really hope she is ready to give up her foal. Hopefully she is not like some mares and waits until the whole family is on the other side of the country!

Baby bump from yesterday;

Do you know when she's due? And do you have any pics of the stud?

All on the first page; also if you look at the old thread linked on the first post there should be more pictures of the daddy.

Today we tried driving collars on our Curly horses who we plan to train to drive. (Just to get an idea on what size we need when we buy harnesses.) Of course this team would include the now very pregnant Tenakee and our other girl, Scarlet. I just have a few pictures of them together, but no real preggo comparison pics of Tenny. (I have some pictures of her in the pasture from 6/21/12 that I'll post.) Scarlet is the darker chestnut with a blaze. Seeing them together makes me think that they would make a nice team even more so. Even though they are different colors they do seem to compliment each other nicely. When we were walking the two next to each other you could see Tenny's stomach swing and bump into Scarlet. Still no baby, and we are pretty much unchanged in attitude. I will be in Texas one week and Minnesota a week after that, so expect a baby then. ;3 Seems to be how that works from what I've heard.

It kills me not being able to see her every day, but from the sounds of it she hasn't foaled yet. We will be leaving today from Texas and making the twenty-three hour drive back home. As cool as it would be to come home to a nice healthy foal, my father keeps telling me that she isn't even close. But that mare is pretty big to be holding off untill September! But we had sort of a community foal watch, so many neighbors including people who have many years of horse experience have been visiting her.
