BLAH! all i can think about is Sandy and her having a baby! I know she isnt pregnant, its far to long for that. But OMG i just wont stop thinking she is! My brain knows she isnt but my heart just wont listen! some one tell me how i can forget about the whole non exist pregnancy thing!!!
I wont be able to breed her for a few years, or until next year. But that means i still have to wait a year. And for some dumb reason i feel like when i come home she will have a baby and i will be oh so happy! HOW DO I GET THAT OUT OF MY MIND! Im going to be happy to see her and i know it! but i also know after i give her love im going straigt for the stomach! I NEED HELP!!!!

Erica,

My best advice is you do what I've been doing this year. Live vicariously through others.
Visit the board as often as possible and read all the stories an check out all the foal pics and happenings.
I know I dearly miss not having any foals this year but it certainly helps to be able to admire everyone elses and see how they are doing and all the antics they are up to.
Hang in there, you'll make it.

I'm doing the same as Phyllis.

My mare had her first foal last year, and I didn't rebreed because it was a fairly difficult foaling, and she retained a peice of the placenta. So I gave her the year off, and bred her to my new stallion for an early February 2009 foal. I really wish I was having a foal this year, but with 4 next year, I'm sure I'll be busy :P


So I just check in on the foaling boards, and entertain myself there :-)

Erica, I know how you feel. I bred my older mare for two years in a row and she never got pregnant but I thought I saw all kinds of signs, bag getting bigger( it was just some edema withthe heat, I guess). Then I bought a pregnant Topi and she lost the baby at 6 months, so had to wait another breeding season and 11 MORE MONTHS. BUT.....Nothing great comes easy....We had Nova. So .... it took about 3-4 years and he's special. Hope this helps and waiting sure is hard!

I too am with you, I havent had a foal around here for 2 years, I was supposed to have one last year from the new mare I bought, but she had lost it... so no baby.... but I decided I had to do it this year since the stallion I have wanted a foal from for 3 years is getting gelded... I will find out today if she is bred :-) I have used this repro board and marestare to get me by!

Erica, I know how badly you wanted a foal... it's so difficult to wait. It takes a ton of patience, of which I have little, so I completely understand how you feel. I believe I'll be in your shoes next year, since my mares don't seem to get pregnant. But in a way, that's okay, Dora really took the wind out of my breeding right now, maybe forever, who knows. It was a horrible thing to go through, I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

But I wouldn't let that discourage anyone from breeding, this type of thing doesn't happen that often...

Kris! Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I guess that means even though I am not expecting I will have to be checking in to see what the stork brings you next year! Jericho watch out!

I am excited.... now the color will be the next exciting part!!! only a 25% chance on each of 4 colors... red dun, palomino, dunolino, or a sorrel... (anything but the sorrel is good!)

This is so funny! When I saw this thread, I thought, "Oh no, not another dead foal or mare!" I didn't want anyone to have had to go through that. Then I read your post, Erica, and had to laugh! I'm really taking all this too seriously lately!

I have the same thought as you, as I've not rebred my mare yet. I don't want her to go through a hot summer heavy with foal, yet I'm already thinking about things like fans and what not, to help her through it. I'm afraid the fever has bit and there is no cure!

You might have to buy a pregnant mare-or lease one! HaHa! I'm considering it.

But sounds like we'll have some company at the very least.

It is fun seeing all the foals as they grow. I need to post more pics of my guy. He is looking like a real horse now that he is sheding. I'm really going to miss the little shit, but his mama will thank me when he is weaned!

What an experience this has been. I'm even looking into a community college that teaches reproduction and so on. I might like to have a tiny foaling farm.

I know some of the people here are old timers and have visited this board each year. It will be fun to be a part of it next year, even if I don't have an early 2009 foal. Probably a very late one though. I know that messes up the whole age thing, but perhaps it won't matter; not to me anyway! I so want a filly out of this mare. I was going to buy her four year old filly, but I was too late. Boo Hoo.

Anyhow, sounds like we won't be along, Erica!
