Figured I'd go ahead and post here! Yesterday we had an ultrasound done on Izzie for the 30 day heartbeat check, and were met with a solid heartbeat! Izzie is a half Arabian mare (xAPHA) who has excelled in Sport Horse and Dressage. She's also a solid trail mount and a great leadline horse for my kids. She's earned up to her Legion of Merit (so she's Written In The Stars++)
She's been bred to the purebred Arabian, Twilight Solstice+, who is just getting started in the Sport Horse world and slowly will be working under saddle. He's owned by a friend of mine and has a very sensible brain.
@ClearDonkey , yup! Doesn't matter how close you get percentage wise to pure Arabian, it'll always be registered half Arabian. I know there hasn't been an Arabian thread in a few years, so I was excited I could put my own up!
@JCnGrace , haha I'm already on pins and needles, but for meeting each milestone!
@KigerQueen , there are actually a lot of options lol Izzie is bay under her grey, and only Gg. Soli is chestnut under his grey and also only Gg. So far he's thrown his grey gene twice out of five foals, including one to another grey mare. So our total color options are chestnut, black, bay, with or without the grey modifier, and if Izzie will toss her frame or white 20 haha! Nick is hoping for black and white, but above all he wants a healthy mom and baby <3
