Thanks everyone. Tomorrow I'm weighing them-- one of the other boarders has weight tape and hopefully will teach me how to use it. I'm starting a chart for foal growth and mare's weight gain.

Some days I wish she could just have all my extra weight :-p

Horse97: Char was always sweet, she's older and probably has had a lot of foals before she was rescued (so the vet thinks) She's the kind of horse that when out in the paddock will hear my car pull up, watch and when she sees me get out she comes to the gate and waits to be taken out. From the moment the filly hit the ground we've been hands on with her (she wasn't breathing) and it's just grown from there. Other owners tell me their mares have not been as friendly as Char has and hopefully her good demeanor will rub off on Katie.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

Breella - Awww bless her that's soo sweet!! My Mare was bought pregnant, we didn't know it at the time :L she's not realy trusted people and we think she had probobly been beaten, she was starting to trust us then she had this foal and if you even go past the gate when she's in the yard, she tries to charge at you through the gate and she bit someone so hard they've got blood clots!! Would love to have a relationship like your with mine one day!! :)

LOTS of treats. Find out what the mare likes and always acknowledge her before the foal. Talk to her as you near the gate.

Breela - Ye she's starting to get better, she's lovley when i've got her on a lead rope in the sandschool and will let us stroke and brush her and the foal, but in the yard she's just horrible, she's starting to improve but its so sloww, but I think she's never realy fully trusted people so haveing the foal has made it worse, but we're getting there, slowlyy...

LOL she didn't faint. She was sleeping and the cat snuck up on her. Char saw the cat and turned around and chuffled a warning at the cat. Katie picked up her head, and laid it back down again.

Here are some newer photos, I took a few of Char side on so I can start tracking her weight gain. She looks so much better than she did just a few short months ago.



I love her face


One of the other borders has a few kids, and they LOVE Katie.



I was teaching them how to give a treat without getting their fingers bitten off.



I love the way she comes up gently and nuzzles my face.
