Mare in foal to Contenda - progression thread

Hello, my beautiful mare is in foal to Contenda, by Contendro I by Contender.

This foal is hopefully going to be one talented horse.

This thread is just for updates, on both the mares pregnancy and then both the mare and foal after birth.
I found threads like this to be really helpful as I was looking for information as this is my first foal. And who doesn't love foals.

Mare (Mim) is due 25th sep, '17. So just over a week to go!


I've attached a few photos from late July and early August.

Okay so first teet photo is 30th aug. 2nd is from 1st Sep.

Body shots also 1st Sep.

3rd teet shot is 4th Sep and 1st vulva pic, from that day to current when ever it's warm she realxes and then it tightens up again at night.

Bags haven't gone up and down, they've slowly filled over time.

4th teet/bag shot 5th Sep
5th teet/bag shot 7th Sep

Last body shot is 7th Sep.

I'm not making it easy for you guys!

Looks like you could be having a foal any day now, by the look of those utters and vuvla!!! Has the base of her dock started to get loose yet? :)

She's gorgeous, and sire is nice too!

They'll make a nice baby, and it looks like it'll be soon!

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

It does not matter how fast you go, as long as your horse will stop
