Chanti's Pregnancy Thread

With Chanti's upcoming delivery I thought I'd make a thread so I can post pics and keep people updated. She is bagging up very nicely and her foal is very active. I get a kick out of just putting my hand on her stomach and feeling the baby move. She/he seems to be more active when I feed Chanti grain lol. I am expecting her to foal by April 10 at the very latest but I'm expecting it well before then.

This pic was taken a couple weeks ago. Since then she has ballooned out again since the foal has switched positions again.

And the dad...Sundance

So we are expecting a chestnut foal with stockings and a blaze but it would be awesome if the foal had her Appy characteristics and even nicer if we lucked out and got a color other than chestnut. Chanti's sire was a black, and she has a ton of bay and dun in her lines too but I know the chances of anything other than chestnut are slim lol

Next time I go see them I'm getting new pics. Sundance finally has a long tail!

So far for names we like Chica if it's a filly and I like Cisco, Pecos, Amigo, or Beau (Bo) for a colt. I will probably register the foal with the ISHR so I have been trying to come up with registered names.

Chanti's lines have Mighty Bright, Mighty Go Man, The Executive, Stock Broker, Bright Eyes Brother, Dial Good, Sunny and Mild, Hands Up, High Hand, Joe Bailey, Leo, Hancock, Three Bars, Chicaro. Of course we know nothing about Sundance's lines or even where he came from.

The only registered names I have come up with are for fillies...Sundances Bright Chica and Chantillys Spittin Image if she looks just like her mom.

Suggestions are welcome!
Other colt names I have for consideration are:

Other filly names are:

Actually, your chances for something other than chestnut are a fantasy. Even though they may have black based horses in their pedigree, they did not recieve a black gene. Each only carries two copies of the recessive red which is why they are chestnut.

Hope you get a flashy appy though

Yeah we are hoping for spots! I was guessing she'd have an April Fools baby but it probably won't be that soon. I'm just hoping she has it on a weekend so we have more time to spend with her and the baby. We have snake eggs incubating so we can't really go off and leave them any longer than necessary :(

Here's new pics taken yesterday. While she was eating her grain the foal was extremely active. I should have gotten a video of it. lol I checked her bag and she has clear liquid. I don't know why the flies love biting her bag so much. I clean it off just about every time I'm there and we are going to get fly spray too.

She also got dewormed today.

Flies. It's already been upper 80s here so flies, ticks, and mosquitoes are out bad already. We are going to pick up fly spray.

3-31 Update: Still just a clear, waterlike discharge from her teats. Foal is still very active. She must be sitting right under her hips because when she moves Chanti swishes her tail and sidesteps and moves trying to get comfortable. I have upped her grain just a little. She is on 24/7 pasture but it hasn't come in all the way yet and she is on a Mare and Foal grain.
Chanti has been sweating a lot with it being unseasonably warm and she's trying to shed her winter coat. Our weather is very crazy and we're supposed to get severe thunderstorms in a few days so I figure she'll wait until it's really stormy before she has it.

She is now about 373 days along so she really needs to hurry this process up lol.

Has she been with the stud the whole time? If so it is a possibility that she aborted and was rented later throwing off your dates...
