    Breeding only costs
    Pre-breeding exam: 150
    Stud fee: 475 (reduction as dee is a graded mare with great bloodlines)
    Vet fee 1st time: 500 (inc lavage and injections)
    Caslicks: 100
    Call out for 1st scan (negative): 27
    2nd Vet fees (AI at home): 300 inc lavages etc
    Call out for 1st scan: 27
    21 day scan: 45 (she presented with a second follicle which we checked up on)
    30 day scan: 45
    EHV 1&4 vaccine (outbreak in the uk): 50
    Shipping of semen x 3: 330
    Transport to vets for 60 day scan: 110
    Scan @ vets: 30
    Total so far: 1714.00

    Costs of keeping the mare for this time
    Now add to that the cost of livery since March (when we first started to try)
    So that's 260 for four months = 1,040
    Stud feed - saracens mare care since January to June (8 bags) @ 14 per bag = 112
    Stud balancer now she is pregnant (replacing Saracens feed) @ 26 per bag x 2 bags = 52
    Since March x 5 bags Alfa A molasses free @ 13 per bag = 65
    Ulcer supplement to help destress dee @45 per tub ( x 3 tubs) = 135
    Wood shavings x 3 bales every two weeks since March (30 bales) at 8.75 per bale = 262.50
    Hay (ad lib but roughly two bales a week) @ 4/bale since March = 160
    Farrier every 8 weeks (had 3 visits so far) @80 per visit = 240
    TOTAL: 2066.50

    TOTAL COST THUS FAR: 3,780.50

    Watching mini dee's heartbeat on the screen: Priceless

    Horse breeding isn't cheap! When they don't take first time costs add up!

    Just thought I would bump this thread up to the top again. How is everyone doing with their prospective babies? Lilly still has 205 more days until she is at 340 days... not that I'm counting or have downloaded a widget on my phone to keep track or anything... Not going to lie, I'm pretty pumped for this and April can't come soon enough! There's no baby bump yet, but I keep looking for it! We've also been managing Lilly's weight very carefully over the summer and although she's not perfect, I think she is definitely at a more healthy weight than she was last year and IMO, is looking in fine fettle. If you want to see weight differences, there are some pictures in my profile of her at this time last year. She is an Extreeeemely easy keeper and keeping weight off of her is difficult.

    Hope to see some updates and pictures from everyone!

    Some pictures of my favorite girl.



    And 1 picture from last year.

    Good luck for 2014 foals. I think we are taking next year off. We are still waiting on our last 2013 foal and we are going to give her a year off. Love the pictures.

    My girl's not really showing yet either. She's just shy of 7 months, and I can see the weight packing on a bit lower than usual, but not enough to really stand out. Give her another month and the pictures will start flooding in.

    My girl is 129 days today and she's starting to show already! Then again it doesn't help that she's a twig in the first place!! She is due april 2nd.

    She's a tb bred to a HUS style aqha/apha/ptha stallion

    Both my girls settled on the first try and have checked in foal. :) Attache's Queen Of Hearts,aka Juno,is in foal to M.A.'s Hickory for a May foal. And Chica's Paint By Twist,aka Chica, is in foal to I'll Smoke Ya for a June foal. Can't wait! Here are recent pics of the mommas-to-be and their not-quite-there-yet baby bumps.And pics of the dads-to-be,of course..
