Hello all - our maiden mini Lilly is due first week of February and I have a couple questions:

1) Lilly and our mini stud Louie are the best of bud's and are inseparable. They have always shared the same stall and corral. When should we separate them?

2) We witnessed them breeding beginning March 3, 2010, but then Lilly seemed to continue to go into heat at least 3 times afterward. It appeared that they tried to breed each time - no witnessed penetration however, except for that first heat in March. Is this normal?

3) Any special nutritional care advice? Currently she receives only hay grass.

and lastly...

4) I noticed there is no "Foal Watch 2011" folder - will one be created?

Everyone here helped us through the first foaling of our mustang Luna (our first, not hers) last March and I'm sure I'll be looking for more advice with my mini over the next few months since this will be our first mini foaling, and her first foal. By the way - our filly from last March, Blaze's Destiny, is gorgeous, happy and healthy - still nursing from time to time also even though she's 7 months old now - we're not overly concerned about that.

Thanks!
Judy

Thanks Carol! I'll start a thread there when the time comes :-) Congrats on your mini mule! Just watch for the signs, although from what I've read, mini's dont necessarily show the usual signs

minis don't usually wax, but other than that, everything is the same. Watch the milk, test it if possible, and take temps and ph....you'll know when to stay up.

1) I'd separate them when her udder fills
2)I'd guess that the march breeding was likely during seasonal heats...and if you saw them "trying" 3 times after that, I'd guess you'll have a may/june foal. Even if you didn't see the penetration, if they were trying it was for a reason.
3) I would put her on a good 14% feed as well, one with selenium and plenty of copper. Purina Strategy is my feed of choice for prego mares.

Thanks Diana! I'd much prefer a may/june foal anyway :-) I'll keep an eye out for her udder..
