Cassie's foaling thread ***Foal has arrived***
 
This is Cassie "Hoboy Hand". When I bought her she was already in foal to "Im your guy" (palomino). Cassie is a triple registered foundation bred broodmare, and "Guy" (whom I do not own) is an exceptional ranch and calf roping horse, and a son of Frenchmans Fabulous. This is Cassies 5th foal, and her previous 4 were all fillys. Her first, second and third foals were all out of a foundation bred grulla stud. First baby was black and second and third were grulla. Cassies sire and full sister were also grulla, so she carries the gene for it... not too familiar with the gene AA, EE, Aa, Ee, etc... only read on it just a little here recently. In 2011 she was bred with "Guy" for the first time and she had a little sorrel filly in 2012. She was left out in the pasture with him (Guy) after foaling, (I did not own her then, and she will not be in the pasture with a stud when she foals this year) so, she may have been bred back on her 9 day heat... if this were the case then Cassie is due to foal between March 26th and April 7th. I have no way of knowing her exact foal date, but I am expecting a baby sooner rather than later. She is already bagging up and starting to relax in her tailhead. I will post pictures of her tomorrow morning when I can take a few in the daylight, but for now I will post a few from 3 or 4 months ago so you can have a visual of Cassie and her "baby daddy". Im crossing my fingers for a palomino stud colt this year, but we will enjoy whatever she has.

Very pretty horses! Hoping you a healthy and happy foaling!

You have a 50% chance of a chestnut/sorrel and a 50% chance of a palomino
If she carried grullo, she would be a red dun (she might be but I am guessing she isn't). Her sire could be heterozygous and passed it on to the sister but not to her.

Thank You! I will get pictures of her progress tomorrow. She has a pretty serious bag already, but its not tight or waxing yet, and her previous owners said she starts bagging up about 3 weeks out, and we've been bagging up for about a week now. She is EXTREMELY bitchy the last few days, which I can understand, shes as big as a house and uncomfortable... lots of tail switching today and standing with her nose in the corner of the loafing shed, kinda pouty like... not wanting much to do with the hay today, but definitely ran up for feed... and followed me for 30 minutes for loving, which she got :)

I wish she were red dun, but Im not seeing it.... Thank u for the info. I have a lot of reading to do on that subject still :) Still gonna keep fingers crossed for that 50% chance palomino.... but will be HAPPIEST with a healthy baby :)
