Well, I'm hoping for a 1D/2D barrel horse out of the breeding but I was also looking to just have a baby from her as she was my first horse and I love her very much and her bloodlines.
I am torn between what I want as far as gender so I guess it doesn't matter lol.
As far as the color calulator goes I've got a 25% chance of a Dunn, 25% regular Bay, 13% chance Red Dunn, 13% Chesnut, 4% Grullo, 4% Black. So we'll see. Fingers crossed for a Dunn or Red Dunn
To me she looks about right too. The only thing I would suggest is to give a good feel along her ribs and backbone, just to make sure the winter woolies aren't obscuring anything. Posted via Mobile Device
I had to worry about my mare getting fat, so I put her on a ration balancer instead of increasing her grain. I chose Triple Crown 30. It's got all the vitamins, minerals, probiotics, etc., plus 30% protein. Good stuff without extra calories my fatso mare didn't need.
30% protein?! :shock: The highest I've been able to find is 16%! But I feed Lilly a Broodmare ration (in addition to hay), so maybe that's the difference. She is also a little piggy and gets fat really easily.
Keep in mind this isn't a feed, it's a ration balancer. They're made to be fed in small quantities so you can get maximum nutrition with minimal calories. Oakley gets 1 lb. in the morning and 1lb. at night. Here's the link to the product:
