Getting Close!

This is Cherokee, I found out she was pregnant when I got her. She was supposedly due between February and March. I'm thinking she still has 6-8 weeks. She's bread to a very pretty Buckskin. This is my first foal so I'm nervous and excited.

Hi, Very pretty mare! Did you know she was pregnant when you got her or was it a surprise? Feel free to post lots of pictures :) There are several foaling threads on the forum now and for some like you it's their first foal too. Lots of good information on here and lots of fun watching to see who's going to foal first. Good luck, will be watching for more pics and updates.

The girl I got her from said there was a possibility as she was in a pasture with a two year old stud. The vet said it wasn't likely because of the studs young age. But in November I had her checked and sure enough.

A VET actually said that? WOW. I would not be using him anytime soon, if I were you. ;-/

Good on you for giving her the care she needs. Wonder what color she will throw? Or of it will have spots? Hmmm. Will be cute I bet!

The dad is a two year old buckskin so it's a total mystery as to what we'll end up with. His dad is a beautiful bay and his mom is buckskin. Cherokee is a silver bay roan as best as I can tell and I don't know anything about her parents as she was a rescue.

Your mare does not appear silver bay. She looks like a varnish appy. NdAppy will have to come and explain that, I will stick to splash genetics.

Assuming she and the sire are Ee Aa, they can produce:
Buckskin, palomino, smokey black, black, bay, or chestnut.

Then whether or not the foal inherits LP or PATN is not for me to begin to explain.

Yep not a silver bay. Bay with Varnish and more than likely had a small blanket. She will get more and more white as the years progress.

I'm also actually leaning more towards her being brown rather than bay.

Wow thank you for the info. At first I was told she was a red roan, but doing research she looked more silver bay. I hadn't heard of varnish appy so that's very interesting. So I don't see much in her teats no filling, other than a growing belly I don't see much progress, so I'm still thinking she may have another month or so. Which is fine with me because I'm in Missouri and the weather here can't seem to make up it's mind and I'd just assume all the ice to pass before pork-chop (affectionately nicknamed) arrives. As far as I know Cherokee is a maiden mare and is six years old.

Here is a side pic of her that may help.
