Well my lovely mare Delicia is 134 days in foal. She is clearly loving life and eating for two already (in her eyes!)
Update: She is no where near as stud-like as she has been so I think she has calmed down a bit, she is still very herd dominant and definitely the alpha mare of the herd.
She's due for her EHV-1 vaccine at 150 days. Her hind shoes are now off and her fronts to follow. Its been years since she was unshod so we did it in stages to make sure she didnt suddenly go lame. I think she is taking to pregnancy very well and tempted to breed a second its a slipery slope I tell you!
Here are some up to date photos:
Last weekend we went to see the British National Dressage Championships, where the best dressage horses in the country compete for the crown of national champion at that level. We saw the sire of Mini-D go on to become 14th in the country at medium level after only two years of competition!
Here is dad, Amour G
I have to say his temperament and attitude is outstanding and I had some lovely cuddles with him. Its the first time I have met him in the flesh. I have watched hours of DVDs and sent friends to stallion shows too far for me to travel to to check him out. I was not disappointed :). He is 16.2hh and a lot more compact then dee with fab conformation. Dee is apparently 17hh but after seeing him she's a LOT bigger so im going to remeasure her this weekend :O
He is everything I looked for in a sire for dee and I am so over excited about this foal . So please, follow me on my (neurotic) journey to breeding from my horse of a lifetime. My good mare.
