So.... Today I did the nail test on dee . Having checked out her luna cycle of when she took it looks like a filly might be on the way, but she also took post ovulation so more inclined to be a colt (faster swimmers).

Anyway for a bit of fun...... We did the nail test!

5 different people had the nail going in a circle. We did it on an open mare also and the nail didn't move....so who knows!

Also managed to get some video of foalie

So exciting day all around

Also....the sun was out today

That is so cool you can see the foal movement like that! I can only see movement when it's really big because Lilly has so much dang fur! And love that you did the nail test! It'll be fun to see if it "worked." I think I'm going to do that on Lilly next time I see her, just for fun! I keep thinking she's going to have a colt, so we'll see if the nail agrees. I'm super jealous of your sunshine and green grass, but hopefully that means Dee can finally go outside? How is the mud fever now?

Since today was a holiday and I didn't have work, I ventured out to see Lilly. I didn't have time to get very good pictures, as I had to help my dad install a ceiling fan in the barn to help circulate the heat better and then was back into the city for boxing class. The poor girl is a miserable mess. The temperature has crept above zero again and she is shedding like crazy! To add to that, she was full of spunk and energy today and worked up a bit of a sweat just trotting around the pen. So she was a sweaty shedding mess. I brought her in the barn to groom her and that was a complete waste of time. I'm pretty sure there is fur in my ears. We are on day 293. Getting so close now!

We've shifted back to the right side.

Note the loose hair on her rump.

Nice lop-sided view. The right seems to have sunk.

And then completely disappeared altogether!

Everyone's mares are looking awesome! Josie is doing great! We actually hauled to an arena and rode around with two friend's horses yesterday. Had a BLAST! Josie loved it :) She got to push around barrels with her nose and we even helped a friend's green 4 year old lope around without trying to buck, LOL. It was a great day and she was absolutely perfect! She is also shedding like crazy and will have a bunch of patches of loose hair that I can rub over with my hand and come away with a handful! She is 294 days in foal!!! We have roughly another 6 weeks! The foal regularly moves around in there now. I catch it a lot since she moves around during turn out while I'm there. Have mom get exercise seems to make the foal stretch and move around as well .

Everyone looks fab! Dee is shedding. I keep finding errant black hairs where their shouldn't be. I don't think the other half believes it's dee . Lol

278 days for us today. Should I be concerned she's not really showing from behind? All I can think is it's her fat ass in the way

That mare will show 24/7 n a few weeks so don't worry. She is in foal and most likely the foal is healthy.
All those pictures of beg tummies made me go out and check the 5 fatties that I have. I did not feel for movement..... you women havent gotten to me that much...... yet
I will not yield to temptation. I will not yield to temptation. I willl nnooootttt yyyyiiieeellllddd! Shalom
