Born July 7th just after 4am, black and white tobiano colt.

He is so friendly and calm. Momma and babe are doing very well. He had some difficulties coming out (big boy, got his knee stuck), so after some gentle traction with Momma's contractions he came out with no problems. Took a bit to find the milk bar, and fought any help to locate it! But he got it figured out finally. Pictures can be seen here...

Enjoy!

That is a great picture. The baby is adorable and so is the colt! I love his markings. He seems to be real friendly. You got a winner there.

Glad to see things went well and the mare and baby and doing great. Take care, Marilyn

Aimee - Oh my - what a handsome boy you have there! I went to the Northern Michigan Paint Horse Show this past weekend and I didn't see any as cute as your boy! Are you going to show him?

Wow, thank you everyone. And here I thought it was just blind Mother love that made me think he is amazing!

I am very thrilled with his colouring, my last Tb/paint mix came out solid (but I still love my boy, he is built beautifully so it makes up for his "lack" of colour!). So this time around I made sure I'd get colour by breeding her to a stallion that is homozygous for the Tobiano gene, and boy did I get that gene! Maverick's sire is "Classic White Gold" aka Ice Man (Any Top Gun fans out there, that is where Maverick's name came from to tie in with Daddy's name!!) I lucked out and this stud is only a couple of hours from me, so I shipped Maggie to him (TWICE! she didn't catch the first time).

Thank you for all of the kind words.

Sandy, I do plan on doing some showing with him. As to how much halter showing I'll do, I'm not sure yet. I will probably take him to one show this fall (he'll be almost 2 months old), I took my last colt (the BS paint) to this show and had a blast (I'd been to the show many times in the past with just my mare). But then I probably won't do anything til he is a yearling, it all depends on how far away the shows are, lol. Once he is old enough to ride he will do some showing then for sure, just not sure what discipline he will do yet.

Maverick is one gorgeous colt!! My mare Reno is on day 363 and I am having the vet out again tomorrow to palpate her, in case it is a false pregnancy.

Ha, Jan, I was happy for the birthday, heck I was just happy for the birth!! I am also very happy with his markings, fairly even both sides and enough that they won't all be hidden once he is tacked up!
Not too long for you now Jan, good foaling vibes your way for as perfect a birth as I had! (ha, well Maggie had!!)

Thanks Marti, good luck with the vet tomorrow. Hopefully it is good news, nothing more frustrating then waiting all this time and finding out that your mare was playing tricks on you! Let us know the outcome!
