I'm subbing, and mares are a world of "what-ifs" so don't get your hopes up. She could hold off until Septemper if she really wanted to, but she could go as early as tomorrow. They are just that way.

I LOVE Curlies (Have one f my own) and I'm excited to see what you get. Appy-patterned curlies are VERY pretty horses. My girl was born August 30th of 2009, a fellow late foal. Hope the foaling goes well and that you get what you hope to. *Pawnee and I are hoping for the best and by the way, I'm SO jealous that you have a horse that was once owned by Joe Mead. You lucky duck.

Got home from Texas around 10AM and finally got to see my Tenakee again! All the horses still have four legs, two ears and a tail. And the population of horses at the farm didn't rise, but I did get my fix of baby Curlies in Texas. On the way home we stopped at Stag Creek Ranch and we got to see all of the horses. It really was great, and I had looked at them online so much that I knew almost all of their names. Their were only four foals so far, and they made me want Tenakee to give up her foal so much! Such magnificent curls and all of them were so friendly. I also got to meet the stud *Angel's Spirit and boy is he a charmer. We walked right in the pasture and he came to say hello. He was pastured with babies and mares and was an absolute sweetheart. He definitely passes that onto his foals as well as his stunning looks. I will upload some pictures of that experience in a bit, but now onto Tenakee.

Today I went to check on her and of course we still have no foal. But after seeing some of the other mares at Stag Creek I don't think we will be having a baby for a while; a few of those mares were huge! After being on horse detox for a week I decided to ride her a little bit. This was my third (or fourth? can't remember..) time riding her and she did alright. We had a bit of a problem moving forward and away from the gate. I used the tack she came with, (draft saddle & bridle,) and I didn't have enough of a feel for that to really get consistent. I also did not want to squeeze her too much and hurt the baby some how. But I felt contented knowing that I at least have something to start from. Still no baby, and I think we might be waiting a while.

And to thank you all for your help and encouragement; pictures!

ohhhh she's so pretty, I really like her. Curious what is the story on their first baby not being able to be registered? Is one on limited registration or did the change the rules again about what could and could not be registered? And I would say your lucky duck cause she looks like she keeps her mane and tail!

Stag Creek has some of the best Curlies.

And that buckskin mare is soooooooo big!!!!!!

I answered my own question I was told that my bashkir was a straight haired curly but it turns out she's not she just looks a like she is and that is why she was able to be registered.
