Thank you DD, I think yours is going to be stellar as well! Idk the agouti status on the parents, but I'm pretty sure I'll have either a chesty, bay, pally, or buckskin, lol. Hoping for a buckskin but I'll take anything but a chesty!!!

She is a very easy keeper. The mare is actually owned by my boyfriends dad. (she was bought as a weanling by my boyfriend, but ended up being to small for him) She ended up making an awesome "anybody" horse so they decieded to keep her.

Anyway.. Flashy is kept at my boyfriends parents (about an hour away) so I only get to see her on weekends, and am not there to monitor feed. She will be foaling at the barn where I board so I can keep a close eye on her.

I made sure to tell him she doesnt need extras yet. He thought he was doing her a favor by packing on the pounds.

Lol. I can understand that. It's hard not to feed more than what they really need.

I meant to add to this, but it was difficult with my phone. I'm in a similar situation as you with Lilly too. She is an easy keeper and is currently at my parents' who live an hour away. What I've done is left specific instructions that are pretty dummy proof. They have square bales right now and I stole their bathroom scale (shhhh) and weighed a few of them. They were in the 40 lb range. It's a Timothy-brome mix and after doing research and talking to different people, she is getting approximately 18 lbs a day; so about half a square bale. I know that's not exact, but some bales are bigger and some are smaller so I think it averages out in the end, plus the fact that it's chilly out, so a little extra might not be such a bad thing. Since we're headed into 3rd trimester territory, I've started her on a 16% protein ration at about 4 lbs a day to supplement the hay. I bought a little pail that's light pink and weighed out exactly 4 lbs (again on the bathroom scale) and marked it in dark black permanent marker against the light pink, so there is absolutely no question as to how much she should be getting. It's tough when you have to depend on other people, especially when you are a control freak like me... so I've tried to make things as easy as possible.

Also, if someone thinks I am feeding her incorrectly, feel free to correct me and I will make the necessary adjustments on the pink pail.

Sorry for the long-winded response. Also, Juno and Chica are looking great!
