Josie's looking so good! I'm super jealous of your lack of snow right now, although we're going through a bit of a warm spell right now, so I can't complain too much. Sire is a beauty. I just noticed at the bottom left, it has sire, dam and 2nd dam. I've never heard of a 2nd dam, what does that mean? Forgive me if that is a dumb question!
Thank you Glynnis! I think the 2nd dam simply refers to the first dam's mother. Shows a strong maternal line that people look for. I would take frozen ground over what we're dealing with as of right now. Mud, mud, MUD! It's horribly sloppy out there and makes for more work for my poor mare to get around :/ not too happy about that! Posted via Mobile Device
262 days in foal! Josie has entered the impossible stance period, lol. She looks wonky about 90% of the time and stands in all kinds of weird ways, lol. She is sooooo much heavier than she was at this stage during her last pregnancy! The difference between getting ridden and not, perhaps? She really "popped" the last couple weeks and her belly looks massive!! I'm not sure if it is because her ribs have sprung or her roommate steals all the feed because she is a slow eater, but she is looking a bit Ribby to me the last week or so. I just separated her so she'll be getting her full ration and supplements, so hopefully the ribbiness goes away. Anyways, no awesome pics, just a suddenly very Preggers mare :)
