As we are doing baby bump threads - UPDATE FOAL HAS ARRIVED!!!
Well my lovely mare Delicia is 134 days in foal. She is clearly loving life and eating for two already (in her eyes!)
Update: She is no where near as stud-like as she has been so i think she has calmed down a bit, she is still very herd dominant and definitely the alpha mare of the herd.
Shes due for her EHV-1 vaccine at 150 days. Her hind shoes are now off and her fronts to follow. Its been years since she was unshod so we did it in stages to make sure she didnt suddenly go lame. I think she is taking to pregnancy very well and tempted to breed a second :D its a slipery slope i tell you!
Here are some up to date photos:
Last weekend we went to see the British National Dressage Championships, where the best dressage horses in the country compete for the crown of national champion at that level. We saw the sire of Mini-D go on to become 14th in the country at medium level after only two years of competition!
Here is dad, Amour G
I have to say his temperament and attitude is outstanding and I had some lovely cuddles with him. its the first time i have met him in the flesh. I have watched hours of DVDs and sent friends to stallion shows too far for me to travel to to check him out. I was not disappointed :). He is 16.2hh and a lot more compact then dee with fab conformation. Dee is apparently 17hh but after seeing him shes a LOT bigger so im going to remeasure her this weekend :O
He is everything i looked for in a sire for dee and i am so over excited about this foal :D. So please, follow me on my (neurotic) journey to breeding from my horse of a lifetime. My good mare.
This is gonna one HECK of a baby! What breed are both parents?
I'm very excited about this match, this is my next top dressage horse, the mare has competed medium (winning teams and county level) working advance medium and the stallion is scoring 76% at advance medium, 8 years old and definitiely Grand Prix material :)
Here is his test from last saturday
They're both very stunning horses! It's going to be a super nice baby. :smile:
Can't wait to watch your adventure! Lovely horses!

I have been bad...the one thing about big shows are the stands and the shopping...
Meet foalies first bling!
UPDATE: Dee is very very affectionate and is without a doubt now showing :)
Shes become a joy to do/handle and is starting to rough off nicely for winter :)
I had a whole sunday free (shock horror) so had time to hang out with her and take some pics and video...enjoy!
hint: watch the video in hd
Super excited to see this baby. What a gorgeous match!
What gender are you hoping for?
As long as it is healthy i dont mind :) A mare would be nice to breed from in the future and extend Dee's line but as long as mum and baby are well :D
