2012 Expected Foals
528 Attachment(s)
Saturday is the last day of 2011, and the last day of December. We all know foaling season is right around the corner. I looked and looked, pretty far back on the threads for a 2012 foaling thread, and couldn't seem to find one.

I was thinking, with it being so close maybe we should start one? I know how excited we all are, can hardly stand around our heavily pregnant mares with out feeling their stomachs for a kick from the foal. So here is to it. What do y'all say? Start it now, or wait?

My 2 are 3 and 5 months from foaling. If others have similar EDC's, I'd be up for it.. :)

I've got one that should arrive in mid May. *crossing fingers for a filly!*

I'm thinking most want foals born near January 1st.. Though some might be back into May.

My one mare could go any day from now until March. Dx

Yes, a lot of the time. If you aren't concerned about yearling lunge line or futurities, it's not all that important. For me, I don't really care about futurities and I'd rather have them when it's not so darn cold! :wink:

We have one due in January-ish - she's a foster rescue so no real idea. And we have one (another rescue, but she's all ours) and she's due sept :D
