Update: Solei's Filly has arrived! Solei's foaling Thread/2013 Baby Bumps
It appears to be time to begin my sweet Solei's foaling watch and also include all the other happy owners of matronly mares.. I'd been asked to continue the "Baby Bump" thread since it was such a hit last year, and this way-- we can all share separately and together our much anticipated wee ones soon to appear..

So-- my lovely companion- Solei- sweet, solicitous disposition, calm demeanor, extremely trustworthy.. and uniquely whimsical and feminine..

5.5 months:

Baby Bump with child..;)

Feel free to share your mare and her beau as well.. :)

A little bit about my girl:

Solei is a Le Fire Grand-daughter- triple Bask with some Rohara, Corsair, Cognac, double Serafix, Patron, and Ivanhoe Tsultan to name a few. She is 42% Crabbet/Blunt breeding - ECHAS Certified, extremely calm, willing demeanor, people-oriented, gorgeous movement, and child-safe.

Le Fire was a Bask son who had great presence. Solei has several lines to Bask, and seems to have inherited lovely movement from him. She is a bit of an anomaly as she is much typier than her parents and much more refined. The authority on Arab breeding has told me that it appears she inherited her lovely head and neck from Ivanhoe Tsultan. All the better for her future get.

I had heard her sire had shown, but in consulting AHA- there is no record of any accomplishments, so apparently not. Perhaps it was a fun show. I did not find any show record for her Dam as well.

She has had some very successful Great-Grandsires, such as Ivanhoe Tsultan, Le Fire, and Cognac.

Cognac's history is quite interesting:

Bred by Lasma Arabian Stud, US. Syndicated for $2,500,000.
1976 US National Top Ten Park
1976 Canadian Top Ten Park
1977 US National Top Ten Park
1977 Canadian National Champion Park

Sire of 79+ champions / 499 foals
Sire of 26 National winners
Sire of 32 National winner producers

A full brother to Gdansk, Canadian National Park Champion. Cognac is a noted sire of horses with tremendous athletic ability. He is the sire of two National Champion Park horses, Miss Cognac (who sold at auction for $600,000), Cutty Water and 1990 US National Champion Park Horse (Reserve), Cognac Perfection.

Le Fire:


As an interesting side-note-- Gdansk is the G-Grandsire of my show-mare DS Magic's Royalty. His son Duel- her grand-sire was a 1998 US National Top 10 English Pleasure Stallion.

Wow, I'm not going to lie I am one of those who don't fancy Arabs, but she is gorgeous. I think I could definitely make an exception for her :-). I can't wait to see this foal!
