Sorry for the double post, my phone was being ridiculous, I wanted to add that I love her dapples. Such a pretty mare.

Thank you Glynnis!! I'm about to go find your post so I can keep tabs on my "contender" in the race to foaling! I would die if I lived where you are! That is WAY too cold!!!! Ladybug , we got all the icky ice and nasty wind but no snow! Disappointing, to say the least!

Glynnis, that just made me shudder. I've never experienced colder than about 10* (F) ever (vacation) and 30* (home) on a regular basis. Our coldest winter days are 40s-50s.. Today here was 78*, perfect beach weather.

Josie definitely is starting to get a little baby bump :) I love her dapples!

Yes, luckily Lilly has about 3+" of winter wool. She barely feels it I'm sure. I haven't started a foaling thread for her yet, but plan to in the New Year. My December is jam packed and I won't have much of a chance to see her til then. She has so much fur, you don't really notice subtle changes right now anyway. I have posted some pictures in "who's planning a 2014 foal" though.

Soooooo, Josie and I had a bit of a scare yesterday! I turned her out with the others as usual and they were running around. Its super muddy out there and I haven't thought anything of it until yesterday!

Fancy, the bay mare who lives with Josie in her round pen, almost collided with her and to avoid it, Josie put on the breaks and her hind end went out from under her! I saw the whole thing, she was hyperextended and was sitting like a dog with her hind legs straight out in front of her. She had a bit of trouble getting up as well.

Afterwards, her lower right side of her belly started twitching/jerking and scared the bejesus out of me! I couldn't get a hold of a vet for an hour and a half and when I finally did, I was told not to worry because if she is going to abort, there isn't anything anyone can do about it, but he didn't think she was going to.

Finally got a hold of my awesome vet this afternoon and he said it sounded like a nerve being pinched that resolved itself. WHEW! She is now only going to get some hand walking or something in muddy weather!

She was absolutely fine and loving her feed and blanket today, no discharge, normal behavior, so I think we're good, although Im still watching her! The pics are from yesterday! She is sooooo much bigger at 228 days than she was last year, lol, probably because she is no longer fit! We did ride in the Christmas parade on the 7th, it was fun! No spazzy moments like she had last year with the lights being waved in her face :)

New Josie pics! 238 days in foal! Getting soooo close to the last trimester! I'm out of town and my roommate is taking care of my baby girl for now. These were all the pics I got, lol. She definitely isn't as horsey as I am! Josie is doing well and really popping!

Just got back from out of town and went to see my girl! She is doing great! I lunged her a bit messing with the functions on my camera, then rode her bareback for a bit, she was great! She wasn't too thrilled to stand still for me to take some pics, lol. I constantly had to ask her to lift her head for me to get a semi-level shot xD

I just saw the 4 year old standings for Josie's Babby daddy and thought I'd post it as well! Sure hope she is cooking up a champion!!!
