Velvet - 10 MONTHS PREGNANT~

Hi Everyone!!!

Took some pics of my VERY pregnant little Thoroughbred mare on saturday when she was officially 10 months pregnant. :)

She is due on HALLOWEEN! I am REALLY hoping for a filly (its SUPPOSED to be a filly, vet had a look on her 60 day scan)...

I am sooooo excited and so nervous! This is my first foal and Velvet's first too. Her pelvic muscles have started to drop a bit and she is getting a BIT of milk in her udders too. Needless to say, I am watchin her like a HAWK! I have a funny feeling she is going to foal early...

Anyway, here's Vellie, looking VERY uncomfortable...

She is absolutely adorable... Just something about a mare in foal that warms the heart. <3

Someone asked who daddy of the foal is...

This is him, Quartz D'Eclipse, imported holsteiner stallion, pictured as a 3yo...he's ALOT bigger and more filled out now!!

He is by Quidam De Revel and out of a Cassini I mare. Incedentally, his dam has a blue eye!

I am really, REALLY hoping for a foal with a bit of white! Though Velvet has only a star, her sire has a big blaze and 3 socks of varying lengths.

Guess we will find out soon enough eh?

Pictures in order are:

Quartz - 3yo
Quidam de Revel - Sire of Quartz
N-Violet - Dam of Quartz (her Blue eye is on the OTHER side)
Cassin I - Sire of Dam
