Freya's foaling thread
 
:D Well, every one else is doing it so I'm jumping on the band wagon!
My mare Freya is 37 weeks and 5 days pregnant. She is a WBXTB out of show jumping lines and her sire is a pinto (although she decided being coloured is too much work). The sire of the foal is Face Value Two, a black and white pinto ClydeXStationbred.
This is Freya's first foal and also mine however I have a lot of support from my vet and friends who have bred for many years :-) I've had Freya for over 4 years and she will be 6 on her due date (29/11/2012)!
She is mainly my pleasure horse and I can't wait to get back into work! :-P
Yesterday my mum saw the foal 'wobble' so that is awesome :lol:
Anyway - PHOTOS!

You did hooray, it's so good to be able to compare baby bellies LOL (and progress) Lovely horse you have there!

Personally I LOVE QH and would buy one in a heartbeat if I could. But I could ever sell her. She rocks my socks off :-P When is your due btw?

oooh she is just gorgeous. Yes I am so lucky to have Merlot - never thought I'd get to own one either - such a cool calm horse! She's due at the beginning of December - when's your girl due?

Merlot 09-13-2012 06:57 PM

By the way that photo above is hysterical, I just LOVE the expressions horses get sometimes

EquineBovine 09-13-2012 07:03 PM

Her last service was 25/12/2011 (Christmas day hehe) and she was scanned 18 days. So technically she is due on 29/11/2012 which is also her 6th birthday! However she is a maiden so I'm not holding my breath!
I hope she drops AFTER her due date because I'm on nursing practicum for 9 weeks then I have my state final on the 20/9 soooo I'm hopping she'll wait!

EquineBovine 09-13-2012 07:04 PM

That photo is her - I'm dead so therefore I cannot work - face. That was the day before our very first hunt. She was 4 :o)
