    Your mares are looking great, WS. Patti looks so small compared to Boo!

    Miley is looking very good as well. She's got such an expressive face in that second photo.

    And welcome JetdecksComet! Brown is one of my favorite colors (can you guess why?), and I'm hoping for something similar in colour to your mare. She's looking great. What are your plans for the foal?

    Everybody looks small compared to Boo. That is just one big heifer of a mare. Patti is actually a 16 hander, she just looks small next to Boo. I look at both of them and question if they are actually in foal or not and then I remember with both of them, wanting to take them in and have them checked when they were 30 days out in years past. Both BALLOON in the last couple of weeks. They're just so big bodied they hide the foals until the last minute, it seems like.

    Thanks, this seems to be a very nice forum!

    We're hoping for a homozygous filly to keep for showing and, much later, to breed. If we get a heterozygous filly or a colt of either kind, we will likely just show it until it sells.

    Foal
    Hello There Jetdeckscomet! Welcome!! You picked a gorgeous stud!! Your mare looks great too!! I am jealous that your mare could go any day. Mine still has such a long way to go. On the bright side I still have a couple months of light(bareback) trailriding before I have to give her a rest.

    All the girls look good! Miss Flashy is 196 days today! :) 100 more days until I start her very own Foaling thread!

    Aw, well, if it make you feel better, I wish we had bred for a bit of a later foal because the weather here is iffy in March. (And, in the end, we will have both waited about the same anyway, huh?)

    Both those mares dreamcatcher has are beautiful. Patti is IMO almost perfection. You must see her in person to understand how nice she is.
    I would hock my left.....I'll let you fill in the blank , since this is a family forum...... to own that mare or one like her.
    If dreamcatcher had not gelded that wonderful stallion that would be a match made from above.
    Yes you know I had to beat that horse again dreamcatcher. Shalom

    Anyone ever get a chance to visit her dreamcatcher and her husband are wonderful host. Shalom

    Sorry dreamcatcher. There is a whispering secret arabians on here and I always seem to get you two mixed up! I see you know what I meant anyway though.

    And jetdecks, I also kind of wish lilly was a little later too, but with her being a maiden, I had no idea what to expect, so I wanted to make sure I had ample time in case she didn't take right away. Had I known she would catch on the very first breeding, I would have taken her later! Luckily, we have a heated barn, so even if we do get an apocalyptic snowstorm, they will be nice and cozy indoors.

    Yep, same here. Oakley is a maiden and she was 14 at the time of breeding. The vet expected it to take a while to get her in foal, or that she would slip. When we took her for her exam and culture, the vet noticed that she was coming in and wanted to go ahead and try to breed her. Lo and behold she took. We did have to put her on Regumate for a while because she wasn't producing her own hormones right away. But, after about six weeks, her own finally kicked in and we were able to wean her off the Regumate.

    So, she was nice enough to save me some money by not causing repeat shipments and trips to the vet, but I'm a bit worried about the weather. Ideally, I'd rather have her foal out in the dry lot... but... um... it's not so dry right now! We have 12x12 stalls, and we can take a divider out to make a 12x24 for her, but it's not a fun task and I worry that she'll still lay up next to a wall or some silly thing. We'll just take it as it comes.
