    I think Kiara and Nu need to bless us with baby belly, hoo ha, and ninny pics for the next 6 weeks.. ha!

    Some of those foaling threads are pretty funny... (and some of those mares I think I know ... um ... more intimately than I care too.. ha!)

    I know! Lol mare hasn't even got a bag, but they're showing off her hoo-hoo! Lol

    My paint mare was bred a couple weeks before Cat. She was looking pregnant at first, but about 2 months ago, she trimmed down, I think she slipped her foal, (I know take her to vet, but not going to re-breed, ever if she's not pregnant, and she's not sick). Her belly isn't any bigger, but she's got a big pot belly from numerous pregnancies in the past, so there still may be a baby in there. I keep feeling around for a kick, but haven't felt anything, even on Cat who I know is pregnant. I'll take some pics of Cat this pm. No porn shots though! Lol She usually loves me to rub her tummy, but she's getting a bit cranky about it, I would be too though!

    Thank y'all for your support! I was worried posting anything with how things go on the forum. Can't really plan for the stallion tearing down his gate or a storm knocking down the fence...

    I will try to get some pics. She get's fidgedy with the baby kicking around, so we'll see how they turn out.

    Do have a question for the knowledgeable ones on color: My girl is -to the best of my knowledge- seal brown, but I have started seeing some white hairs on her. She is 2 1/2-3 years old. Is it possible that she is greying out? I tried to attach some pics. Hope it worked.

    Does she have a gray parent? Can't be gray unless she has a gray parent. It's not unusual for horses to develop white hairs in the flank area or at the tail head .. it doesn't necessarily mean roan or gray ..

    Don't know the mom or dad. Some of the possible moms were gray. So sadly, I don't know. I notice the hairs on her flank and some on her back, none on the face so far.

    Just want to say again that I appreciate the support. This whole thing is scary enough as is. I hope she will foal without a problem.

    Here's a full body from last year.

    I see alot of the white flecks, especially in our 5 yr old sorrell gelding and to my recollection, neither of his parents were gray.

    Ok, good to know. There is nothing wrong with grays, I just used to lease one and they DO NOT stay clean! He was brown, green or yellow depending on what he rolled in that day. She likes to get into everything so if she were to gray out she would look a mess 24/7

    If she has no white hairs on his head .. I would be pretty confident in saying she is NOT gray.

    She's pretty!

    Thank you! She only has a white star. Her muzzle is gold and she has "eyeliner" under her eye that is also gold, but no white. She seems to change color from black to almost a buckskin color when she bleaches. I heard it's called seal brown, though some sources say it's its own thing, others claim it's a shade of bay...

    She is my sweet girl :) Maybe someday y'all can meet her and my old man and I can meet y'alls horses.
