Honey's Foaling Thread
Thought I'd make a thread for my mare, to pass time and because i enjoy reading others threads, like so many others are doing :D

My red dun QH mare Honey is due to foal soon!
She's had atleast one foal when with previous owners and is a very motherly mare, sharing a paddock with two mares with foals at foot and treating the foals like she's a second mum for them.
Honey has a fantastic temperament and is one of the most sweet, quiet and tolerant mares with a big personality and her only flaw in her attitude being she's terribly hard to catch. She has wonderful health minus an old leg injuries that gives her no trouble.
She's 20-23 years old but has had no trouble foaling in previous years.

The sire to her foal is a local breeders palomino QH stallion named Yeller. He, like Honey, has a great temperament and health. Yeller has good movement and conformation and preduces amazing foals each year.

We will most likely keep Honey's foal and him/her will be used as a trail and companion horse :-)

First of all, welcome to the forum. Its nice to have another foal on the way here. :) When is she due? I'm sure we'd all love to see pictures of the mother to be, and possible stallion if you have them. Good luck with foaling!

Thankyou Ladybug2001 and amp23 (:
I'll post pictures of Honey and will try and get some pics of the stallion as well!
I'm not sure exactly when she's due but it should be within the next few weeks! My mum thinks she'll foal this week, which would be great! :)

I found some pictures on one of the cameras!
picture1: Honey on 17 November 2011
picture2: Honey, also on 17 November. In these first two Honey was in a paddock with the cows (obviously) and most of the other horses
picture3: Honey and Lucy. Honey is in a seperate paddock from the cows and other horses. She shares this with Lucy, Holly and their foals.

I can see why she is named Honey :)

Very pretty, looks real good for her age.
