Dreamer's Foaling Thread *update* Baby is here!
I am beyond excited, words cannot describe how antsy I am for this foal. I thought I could wait to start a foaling thread when she reached 320 days, but I cannot. Very close though, 320 days is in exactly 2 weeks from today.
After last spring's heartbreak, we are almost to the safe foaling point and hopefully a happy healthy little baby. For those who weren't aware or forgot last year's heartache, Dreamer had a filly 3 months before she was due, also had a retained placenta that wasn't an easy task for the vet to remove. Vet could not determine what the cause was since nothing seemed to be wrong. Dreamer then went through a period of depression and kept going to the area of the pasture where her foal was delivered, she had even licked her foal clean right after delivery.
Dreamer has was confirmed safely infoal via ultrasound with everything looking very good at 30 days, although the vet said she was 40 days along according to the measurement. Which is impossible to be true because she only stood for the stallion one day so we know the exact breeding date :lol:
Anyways, on to pictures:
Pictures were taken in June and July 2012, will post her recent belly pictures in another post to come. Dreamer's registered name is Mystk Dreamer, she is bred to DA Sir Dierich (pronounced "Derek"), both are registered purebred Arabians. We have a name picked for a boy but not one for if it is a girl.
Another reason for my excitement is that about 4 years ago, I chose the mare and stallion as a breeding match. My mom bought the mare about a month after I pointed out the lovely girl for sale and then bought the stallion spring of 2011 when his owner wanted to have pursue current fashion bloodlines with a new colt she bred but only wanted to stand one stud. Now my mom has the wonderful stallion that is extremely well mannered, a pleasure on the ground and in the saddle. I had a lot of fun riding him, even though he was a bit rusty on head set from 6 months of being a pretty pasture puff :lol:
Wow!! Georgous!!! You must be so excited!!! Cant wait to see the baby:)
Very excited for this foal :D
Two brand new foal blankets are waiting, both are pink... This is what happens when you send a website link of sstack to your dad to tell him all about the perfect present to give to my mom since this is her first time expecting foals this early in the year :rofl:
My mom did wonder why she didn't get a pink and a blue... my dad claimed that they only came in pink, he is usually so good about ordering online products :???:
Oh, and it is "foals" because my sister's mare is also due, will be 320 days next Wednesday. I am not as excited about her baby, but I will post pictures :-)
Here is my sister's mare, Magic
photo taken July 5, 2012
and here she is at Feb. 22, 2013
Foaling history: Dreamer had 1 colt before my mom bought her, Magic had 2 foals before my sister bought her.
I can see why you would be excited, she sure is a beautiful mare :-) I'm excited for you ;-) Good luck this time :-)
She's a very pretty girl! Very good reason to be excited! I wish you a healthy and happy foaling. As well for your sisters mare as well! ;-)
Any photos of the sire?? :-D
DA Sir Dierich (barn name, Sir)
as seen in these 2 pictures, he can fly :clap:(red looking streak on his hind leg is the underside of the leather reins that are swinging around)
He is so much fun to ride and he loves it... he also loves to look at the photographer :lol:
Here we practice synchronized cantering with Sir and Dreamer
Running at my sister taking pictures, everyone is having a blast :D
End of the ride, Dreamer stretched herself out... A lot :shock: :lol:
And some more pictures of Sir :wink:
Sir is EE aa, SCID clear, will also be tested for CA and LFS soon. Dreamer's foal will be black, Magic's foal will be either black or bay. Most of Sir's progeny are fillies, his third colt was born last spring.
And for those that like to study bloodlines:
Da Sir Dierich Arabian
Sir was shown as a yearling in halter in local Class A shows, started undersaddle when he was 5 1/2 and shown in Class A Western Pleasure shows when he was 6 yrs old and is a breed point earner. His sire was shown in class A shows as well (don't remember how well he did). None of Sir's progeny has been shown in AHA recognized shows at this time, there are plans to show his 2012 colt next year (he has started his halter training) as well as plans on showing a foal out of Dreamer.
Mystk Dreamer Arabian
Dreamer was never shown, her sire has a very nice show record which would've been longer if not for a major accident that cost him his life while at a trainer getting ready for Nationals. Dreamer's dam was career broodmare, I have found a picture of her as well as several of Dreamer's half siblings.
And as a bonus, here is a picture of Sir's 2012 colt
Absolutely stunning horses Sunny!! Your mare looks very much like my black mare Midnight's Echo, also Polish bred. Love them!!
Many heartfelt wishes for an uneventful delivery and a healthy foal!!
Very gorgeous horses! Can't wait to see the babies!
