Hi all,

I have been reading and keeping up with all of you on the board but not posting as I have been struggling all summer to get my mare in foal. She is one that delivered a full term foal that died due to lack of oxygen at birth. We have AI'd three times and I am happy to announce that we have a U/S confirmed pregnancy. This time around we short cycled her, I moved her next to a studdy gelding, my vet used SETTLE, antibiotic douche the day after insemination, and oxy protocol. So in two weeks she will do a heartbeat check. So for today I will just be happy with my photo of a black hole. jan

Congrats Jan! Believe me I know the feeling. It took me all of last season and my last breeding date was July 31st. She is now on day 66. She was checked at 48 days and I saw a bouncing thing that looks like nothing to most, but heaven to me!
Now if I can just get over the Gypsi moth problem on my property then, then I can relax. I've had to destroy some beautiful cherry trees, but I can't take the risk. My fingers are crossed for you. Cheers!!!

Thanks Jennifer....and congrats to you too!! I look forward to following you and your mare through the journey, but I am sorry to let you in on a little secret...even when every last Gypsy moth is dead you won't be able to relax...there will be something to cause you anxiety during your mares gestation.....so here is to us because we will be the last to deliver next season...

I know how you both feel. We started breeding in March with this one mare. We have bred her and bred her and bred her and bred her. The last breeding was in July and she finaly took. We have check her twice and she is holding, But we go in for another check in a few days. Heres hoping she is still holding the pregnancy . We have been through a lot with this mare. She is 13 and a maiden. She got pregnant the very first time with no problems but lost it at about 70 days or so. I hope she hangs in there this time.

Kassie,
Fingers and toes crossed and good thoughts your direction. Rejoice in the moment. She is pregnant! I know when you have that special mare and you want a baby from her it is heartbreaking when it doesn't work out. Please let us know how your next check up goes! You will join Jennifer and I in the late part of the season. Glad to have your company. Jan

So, were are the late ones huh? I just hope we are all here together come late may! I am keeping fingers crossed. Kassie, I can't imagine getting to day 70 and finding her open. That is my nightmare, and Jan...I know, I will never relax. I constantly worry she has ingested one Gypsi moth catepillar and it will cause problems. I just have to hold on to the thought that it took this long, she HAS to make it all the way there. Naive...I know. PS I have a 13 year old Maiden (until last year) morgan. How similar to you Kassie!

Welcome aboard Michelle. Hope your mare's delivery is safe. Are you going to try and catch her in her foal heat? You must live on the west coast with me:-) I'm in California and the weather is still nice in the fall. My mare always goes to a year so I will be looking for a middle to late August baby. Good foaling vibes Michelle. Jennifer I will be here cheering you on in the late May.

Hi all,

Well I am delighted. Just returned from the barn and a visit from my vet. Ultrasound showed a strong heartbeat and the little guy was moving. We are at day 31 and on our way. My vet performed a caslicks. First time for that procedure but after losing this years foal at birth with a uterine infection we are not taking any chances. Thanks!

no ladies it was an accedent that she got prego adn it seems she may not have it until Oct. not sure when she caught any ways I am in Okla and we are getting blankets and such for the baby so it will not get sick and we are bulding a speacial place for baby. No it will not be to the same stud. The stud she is bred to now is my black breeding stock paint. And she will go to a differant place to be bred hopefully in her foal heat. Thanks for the well wishes and I hope all of you have good birthings.

Congrats on the heartbeat Jan! Don't they wiggle ALOT for a group of cells! My mare gets her 88 (to be exact) day check on the 25th and I am a nervous wreck. I keep watching her to see if she is still Peeing alot. She seemed to start to do that alot when she caught and stayed (as of yet that I know of!) I check her stall for extra wet spots like a dork. What breed is your mare Jan, I wanna say you have Paints, but I don't remember. Michelle, keep us posted on the foal heat breeding.:-)

Thanks Jennifer, I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you and your vet date on Monday. I am sure your mare is in fine shape. My mare is a Paso Fino. What breed is your mare? My mare foaled in 2003, my beautiful Paso gelding, and then in 2005 she foaled a filly that was a red bag and DNS. So this is a much wanted foal. So I with you will be on the anxious boat for the next year! I will be looking for you post on Monday.

Michelle...October is almost here! Keep us posted!

Kassie,
Any news on your mare?

Jan yes we did check my mare and to my joy she is still pregnant . We got to see the heart beat and the neck and head. It was awsome. Things are looking good here. I will be checking her again in about a month or two. Hope everyone else is having good luck with their mares.

Congrats on the still pregnant mare Kassie! Jan, I have a morgan mare that has a long long mane, tail and forlock (well she is a broodmare!) so, much like the paso look. I call her my wild pony. She is due for her bridle path trim. I am keeping my fingers crossed as well, I will post Monday to let all know if she is still ok! Kassie, how far along is your mare now?

For those of you interested...Jan and Kassie... Indy had her 90 day on Monday and she is still pregnant! Got her 3 month shot and discussed Regumate with the vet, they feel we should just keep her on it until 150 days. They say "why risk it, then for sure the placenta will have taken over". I bought a whole darn bottle so may as well use it!!! I feel relieved that she still looks good to go. So cheers and lets keep fingers crossed for all!

Whoop Whoop! Doing the pregnant dnce for you Jennifer. So happy to hear your good news. We are at day 40. Last year I kept my mare on Regumate till day 150. That stuff is expensive. This time her uterine tone looks so good we are not giving Regumate. How is the battle with the moths coming? Is the Morgan the mare that is in foal? I like them. I call my Paso my over 40 horse..nice smooth ride. Real people pleasing horses and sure footed. Now for the long stretch till the next pregnancy check.

Kassie- so happy for you that you got to see the heartbeat. What a joy! Heres to us and the late foals! Jan

Jennifer congrats on the still pregnant mare. You don't realize how precious the pregnant mares are until you have one that is hard to keep pregnant. We took Kadi off of regumate after about 30 days and she is still looking good. I sure hope she holds.

OHOOOHHH, it's gonna be hard to wait. I love foaling season :-)

Well Heather and Cathy we will be excited to see what '07 brings to you both. Other people success raise us all up. You guys only have 4 or so months to go! The only nice thing about a summer foal is the long warm evenings I don't envy the winter nights that you will have to endure.
Take care- jan

Hi all,
Jan....NOW that you say about "4 months or so", it feels so CLOSE!!!! I hadn't thought about it that way :-). Now, I'll be on the countdown....
Ohhh, we don't worry about those "winter nights"...down here in Houston, TX that is an oxy-moron. Just in case, I do have radient heaters that have mounts in the barn ceiling. Just having them gets me a lot of geering from others!
Most likely, it will be in the high 50's to 60's when she foals.

Kassie...you and me girl! Tons of fun and waiting is NOT by strong suit :-). Thank goodness (for my sanity) Grace foaled this year at 327 days, and a huge boy at that. Been wispering in her ears to keep that trend rolling.

Lol. I know how you feel. Was she a maiden this year? I can't remember. My mare that is due in Feb. was a maiden last year so this will be her second, she went 327 days also and it was a colt. I hope she stays with the same game plan lol. I liked it a lot, she did everything to a T. She waxed about 24 hourse before foaling, she even got a soft stool the day before. I had bred her to a palomino stallion and hoped for a palomino filly, I got a sorrel colt . I still loved him. But this year I bred her to a Cremello (no questions about color) and I am wanting a colt. so lets see what we get. I plan on showing this foal in halter classes as a weanling next year. I can't wait!!!

Yes, 2006 was Grace's maiden foal. This to be her second. Like yours, she was "fairly" textbook. Except, she went in/out of early labor for days....what a headache. But, when she foaled, wow....talk about writing the book..she could of done it. Went from a bubble to baby on the ground in 4 minutes flat! Darn near spit him out with lightning speed.
This year, she is bred again to a bay stallion, so my color options are bay, brown, or black. I put my orders in for a bay filly....

Bay's are beautiful, but as far as dark colors go I love Browns. I don't knwo why lol. Something about their color is so odd. I have a bay mare and a brown mare. My personal riding horse is a bay. I plan on breeding her next year. She is 3 this year so it would be her first. I only have two maiden mares this year the other three are old pro's at this. But Dalls (the one that had Flora this year) Had trouble with delivery, I waited 10 minutes and she could not get the shoulders out, I finally went in and pulled her out. I was so thankful I was there because flora was HUGE she was the size of a 2 month old at birth. I realized I could have lost Dallas and Flora if I had not been there. That makes me even more deterimned to be at all the foalings. And that means even more sleepless nights lol.

Kassie,

Brown's are my favorite too :-). Always wanted one, ....well, now I have 3!
If you like brown, you will like Grace. She is a classic seal brown, and her colt is a bit darker than her.
Here is a pic of them together when Buddy was about 3-4 days old.

She is very pretty. She looks just like my girl Dallas, except she looks a lot taller, and also a lot better figure lol.
http://www.yellowhouseranch.com/1Dallas%20034.jpg
Dallas is bred to a Champange stallion I am really hoping for a Classic or Sable Champagne colt. I sure hope I get one.
Browns one of my favorite colors. I would like to have another one. When I bougth this mare they were calling her a black, but I knew she was not black. She is registered as a bay but I don't see it lol.
