Hello everyone! I just started searching for horse forums today! I was looking to share in everyone's (including myself) foaling journey!

I have a cute buckskin AQHA mare by The Flashy KingXBoogies Flashy JacXHollywoodjac86 out of a daughter of Little Tequilla LenaXSmart Little Lena

She is in foal to a son of a AAA race horse who has proven offspring and out of a superior AQHA barrel racing mare for an April 1st foal!!! She is currently 275 days and is not showing much.

We here in Texas are going through a bit of a hay shortage with the drought, so she is not getting free choice hay. She receives 2 flakes of alfalfa and 1 1/2 scoops of grain twice a day with weight gain and mare and foal supplements. She was just started on the supplements going into her third trimester!

She is a cute little mare. I completely trained her myself. She has about 90 rides on her in almost two years, which have been very erratic(sp?). She and I competed in an Extreme Cowboy Challenge last summer and actually came in 1st overall in novice horse, winning a buckle, and 2nd overall in novice rider, making her earning close to $150 in winnings! I am extremely proud of this mare. She is by far the best minded horse I've ever ridden and incredibly smart.

Here are some pics taken today, let me know what you think!











And a few pics taken at different points in her life, just for fun!!!













She is a great little mare and is a blast to ride! I still ride her as she shows no discomfort and I have no place to lunge her (my roundpen is either extremely hard or too wet and sloppy!).

I'm really wanting to place a cam in her stall. Does anyone know what to buy and which program to stream through? This is my first foal since I was 16, lol.

On Josie's foal heat, if she is checked out and ok by the vet, she will be bred to AQHA reiner RC Fancy Step, then I probably won't breed her for a few years and get to riding her. She is the mare my children will ride (if I ever have any, 21 is wayyyy too young, lol) and will stay with me forever!

No she really doesn't look pregnant. She was preg tested? Anyways, she is a skookum looking little mare.

I had her palpated in November because she didn't look bred at all and she was bred then. I plan on having her checked once more in February, just in case, but I had a mare who was in training for 5 months when bred and a couple months before foaling, looked like this:



They are of a similar build, Risky, the paint mare, carried her foal very high in the rib cage and looked like she had a hay belly, if that, the day she had a big, strapping foal. I think Josie is carrying the same way.

Y'all have me a bit worried now, I think I'll take her with me and get her palpated tomorrow when I take my weimaraner puppies to get their tails docked and dew claws removed. Here's a pick of them for giggles!!!

Ya, when she isn't bred and getting fet only 2 flakes of hay a day, she tends to look drawn up in her flanks and isn't filled out. I hate it, so generally always feed her free choice hay, but can't afford to now! That is one of the main reasons I think she is still bred, she never has that empty look in the morning before feeding time! I'm still going to go ahead and take her to get her checked out tomorrow if the vet can fit me in, just to be sure!

Just realized that you have her tied to the side view mirror of your truck with her reins. Hope she doesn't jump suddenly, she may adjust your mirror to where you cannot see much of anything :D

She probably is pregnant, but a vet check is a sure way to ease your mind :D

Ya, lol. This mare will not pull back. She is guilty as charged about rubbing her face on it though! Thank you for all the replies. She is a small mare, but I couldn't find a more perfect horse for me! She is the right combination of spunk, cattiness, gentle, and lazy. I am too lazy to tie her to the post out back by their stalls to saddle her, so I bring her to the front and tie her up there. I don't tie her there when I go somewhere, just in case, lol. I have two mares and turn them out in the area our house is in to eat some grass and did lose a mirror recently. Josie is the boss mare and got after Kadie (My other mare), and Kadie's butt connected with my mirror and won!!!! I was less than pleased!

Good news, had her palpated and she is bred. Doc hadn't seen her since November and did comment she didn't look heavy bred at all, lol. There is definitely a little guy in there though!!! The weimaraner puppies were not happy at all getting their tails docked and dewclaws removed, but better now than when it might really hurt!

Haha, she probably passed it on to me unknowingly. I got weighed today for my physical exam for the nursing application (along with not one or two, but THREE shots, >shudders<) and weighed 180, I've picked up 15 lbs since last summer! The shame!!!!

I don't know about that Sunny... My vet missed a foal twice. xD We all know it is in there, I got proof!

Though, the mare in question is adorable indeed, beautiful mare. Do you have a picture of the stallion by chance? I'm sure she is pregnant as well, if the vet said so but at least you are getting her checked once more in February, couldn't hurt. You might have said this in the beginning, but is this her first foal? If she is maiden, that could be a good reason why she isn't showing.

(Will delete the last part when I go back and check. ^^)

I thought the rear view mirror was to hide her true identity. :) Kinda like those Glamour magazine "Do's and Don'ts"......except she is a "do"! lol Cute girl!

Lol, thanks guys! If she was a human, she'd probably check herself out in the mirror all the time, she loves to rub her face on it, even when she isn't attached to it. I'll come out and that mirror will be all bent out of shape. I do have a couple pics of the stud. He is a good looking boy, but kept moving around so I couldn't get a good pic. My friend is a great guy, but he has so many horses they don't get good turnout times so really like to explode when they do get let out of "jail". I'll go upload a couple to photobucket and put em on here.

Here is my mare's pedigree: Smart Queen Lena Quarter Horse

And the Stallion's: His dad is a AAA race horse whose foals have done really well in speed events and a couple roping. His dam is a superior barrel racing mare. Check My Charisma Quarter Horse
