Vitani's Foaling Thread
I wanted to start posting here to have help on guess when she will be close. My family has had there share of foals. (Bred on purpose and horses that they have bought bred knowing and unknowing. We like to adopt and rescue when we look for new horses) this will MY first foal.
Vitani falls in the case of rescue. She has good lines and I find her very pretty and unique for a sorrel. She is a great mare. The guy that had her rode her to young and did something to her stifle. She would lock up and so he stopped feeding her because she was "USELESS" and was going to sell her for meat when a neighbor stood in and asked the guy if he would let her find a home for her and pay him what he would have got from meat. She came to us starved and just flat out bad looking bad feet everything. We brought her to the vet and he said she had a stifle issue brought on due to weak muscle or something like that it was so long ago. He gave us a work out routine and as long as we stick to it she does not lock up and is not sore at all. Her only down fall is it take longer for her to get fast after you get into the lope it takes a few seconds before she kicks off due to weaker back legs but she is still great we got her when she was 2 years old now she is 7 and I have competed her in barrels and other speed events and also done trails my little sister competes on her now and this foal is for me.
I know there are some harsh people on here and if you have any suggestions or anything I will listen but if I feel like I am being attacked I will just ignore due to the fact I don't want to start drama or an argument. =)
First off pic when she was only a couple months prego.
Then pics of her udder and side the day before yesterday, yesterday, and today.
I am starting this because it seems she is picking up on progressing and I love reading the threads on here and would love everyones help guessing when she will go so I can hopefully be there =) Sorry for this long post =P 340 days will be on the 30th of March
I love reading about the mares on here but I am so into reading I never post =P

Thanks guys! I love her to death! By the way she was bred to a Blue Roan. So if I remember correctly from the color calculator the color chances are
25% Blue Roan
25% Bay Roan
Because he is dominant black gene or whatever it called lol I am not good with genes or know much.
If the stud is heterozygous black, you have a 50% chance of getting chestnut/sorrel
I love genetics :D
If your mare is homozygous agouti, you can only get bay/brown foals when the sire throws black.
If the stallion is heterozygous for roan and black and your mare is heterozygous agouti, the foal can be: blue roan, bay/brown roan, red roan, black, bay/brown or chestnut/sorrel
lOVELY MARE, SHE IS VERYLUCKY YOU CAME ALONG - GOOD FOR YOU...oops sorry didn't mean to shout ;-)
He is homozygous black. That is what it was. I have not had my mare tested for agouti I want to though. =)
