Stella's Foaling Thread - she has arrived!
 
My little pony mare Stella is on 250 days tomorrow, so I thought she could get her own foaling thread. :-)

My mare is 18 years old, and my old competition companion. We competed up to national level in dressage and jumped 4'3" fences in training.

We don't know what breed she is or her sire and dam, but she has everything else going for her, so we decided to breed her to the handsome German Riding pony FS Mr Right.

Stella when she was in training.

This is going to be one beautiful baby! Do you know if she has had previous foals or is she a maiden mare?

Thanks everyone. :-)

SunnyDraco; She is a maiden.

I am having a hard time figuring out names for the baby... I actually want a short name for the foal.

Colt names

Mr Darcy (;-) It's sires name is after all Mr Right...)
Misha (M from Mr, I from Right, S and A from my mares name Stella, and an H to tie it togheter.)

Filly Names

Grädde (lol, the Swedish word for whipped cream.)

But after that? No ideas what so ever...

Stella, I am extatic to see this baby! I am absolutely in LOVE with that stallion! How tall is he?

As for names...I know absolutely zero Swedish so if these make no sense dont be offended!
I think "Lilla" would be cute doesn't that mean little? Cause it looks like it will most likely be a pony right?
or....how about "Krydda" haha doesn't this mean Spice? Haha couldn't help myself :)
I don't think "Mira" is Swedish, but still pretty none the less! It'll be your little miracle!

Lol, I now realized that I should have chosen a different username than my horses name. :-P

He's tiny, he's about 140 cm now and thats probably 13.3 hands?
But he's turning four years this year, and his parents are bigger than he is. He got some thoroughbred and warmblood horses in him, and the rest is Welsh ponies.

I choose him because they called him "the yellow pony Totilas", and because of the fact that he is small. My mare is almost a small horse, and I want the baby to be a pony. :-)


People her in Sweden actually give their horses English names most of the time and quite often combine the mothers name with the fathers name.

To me it doesent matter what language the name is in, as long as it is cute and easy to say. I'm lazy that way. :wink:
But if someone has a name that is absolutely amazing/gourgeus/etc. I would like to hear it, perhaps I will change my mind. :wink:

Like the name Nangijala, I love that name.

But yes, Krydda means Spice, and Lilla means Little. :-)

Mira is actually really pretty! Thanks.

She's getting really grumpy. And today she somehow destroyed her mane even more than she already has... so I had to cut it for
the first time in a year, half of the mane was loong and quite nice, and the other half of it where short enough for a dressage horse. :-|

Very well, it will grow out again.

StellaIW 03-13-2012 04:43 PM

Today she had a mudbath... So I gave her a real one. She was not happy with me... :-P :wink:
