may I ask what type of camera you used? And how expensive it was?

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I can't remember the camera brand offhand (I bought 3 of them from 2 different places) but the last one we bought at either Future Shop or Best Buy - can't remember which one it was. It was around $100.00 per camera and for about $50.00 more you got the sender and receiver units as well

I found the sender/receivers didnt work well in our case, as we were at almost the maximum 300' distance and wind, rain, the microwave, the x box all affected the signal badly. So today we had the fellows come with some gizmo that was plugged into an electrical outlet in the barn and in the house and the house one was connected to our wireless router and the barn one direct to the computer in there, so the camera's now go direct into the Dazzle unit, into the computer and onto the Internet and there is "0" interference

I will probably upgrade the camera's but that will be next year and I will also get a splitter, so all 4 camera's can be viewed at the same time, but that's next year as well...

Just as an update, we have calcium milk levels between 250-500 as of last night which usually indicates foaling within 24-48 hours. She was VERY restless last night and this morning we finally have wax as well ...

Her ph levels were high last night but I will re-test them when they come in today and see where we are at.

Added to this we have thunderstorms on the horizon for today and tomorrow so I am pretty certain she will decide to foal shortly. She is at Day 329 today ...

The Mare Stare link for Pearlescent is - once again -

True Colours Farm Cam 1

Any and all extra "eyes" would be VERY much appreciated!

Thanks everyone!

What do you guys think? Here are the pictures of him this morning and a VERY crude attempt at putting Baby Pearl on top and him on the bottom in the last picture in the same age range ...

And his little dorsal stripe:

And:


And last (Baby Pearl is on top and the colt is on the bottom):


I do remember that baby Pearl was a LOT lighter when she was born but we have seen a huge range of colour variations within cremello coats - I wonder if perlino coats are the same? They can also range from light to dark and everything in between???

Oh gosh He is adorable! When I was watching the birth I was wondering what color he'd be. He looked so much darker on the cam.

His owner in Germany will decide on a name for him and I think she wants to wait until the colour genetic tests get back before she decides for sure

Okay - here are the first "outside" pictures taken of the colt. The inside ones really didnt show how dark he is compared to his dam, I guess due to the flash going off and lightening up his coat when it did

I am still thinking very much that he is a smoky cream

Thoughts?

And:



and one of Pearl minus the "baby weight" ! :)



And he is VERY dark ShutIpJoe - he came out the colour of chocolate milk with charcoal undertones. A VERY different colour!
