A while back I posted a thread that became a sore subject for many including myself about some mares that looked to possibly be pregnant and ones that were. Several people stated that the mare that WAS definitely pregnant was not and was just excessively fat. Well for everyone who said that, and of coarse the eyes of foal adorers, I went out today to find she now has a filly at her side.
I went out a couple of days ago and she was starting to get bagged and have a a steady stream of almost clear wax/milk mixture. She didn't look like her belly had dropped back but she was narrower then she had been. Today she has a beautiful brown, almost wild bay, filly with two hind socks (just like mom) and a star almost perfectly centered on her forehead!!! She also has a high whirl which some believe to mean she will always be high spirited.
The filly did get curious about me and my sister and we would have spent more time out there but there was a pretty bad storm blowing in and I had to get the penned horses fed. I will try to get pictures of just the foals next time I am out there. Classy (the first mare to foal) has no problem keeping her colt separated however she is starting to let us mess with him more now that he is venturing out on his own. Scorchin (Two socks) is very content letting me go right up to her and her filly.
Can't wait to see this little girl grow up!!!
On a side note there are several horses out there that previously hadnt been touchable that I have been working with and I was able to give them a full body rub down today as well.
