Alrite, so I was boarding my mare last year at another persons place because I had a stud colt at my place, and a bunch of other horses to break, and pretty much no room for my mare. She was only 2, and had about 30rides on her, so I was going to leave her for a but and work on the others. I was continuously phoning, and they assured me everything was fine until a few months later I phoned, and the lady notified me that there was a good chance my mare was bred, and about 5months along. I was less than enthused. And to top it off not only was she bred at 2 years old, she was bred by her very fugly Paint/Quarterhorse/Percheron mix. So fast forward to this year, my mare had her baby about a week ago. Now, not only have they informed me that her family was going to name the foal, but they've told me that I can't work with my mare or her filly for another 2weeks, so they can bond! I've always handled foals when they were a day old and have never had any negative effects from it. Now, she is dropping hints that the foal is hers, since it was her stud that made half of it! Grrr I hate ******s! Anywho, here is the filly, at about 4days old, fortunately didn't get her moms plain and big head, but she did get her dads fugly front end and long pasterns!
