Apple's Foal Watch

Recommended Posts

Wow its been a long time since I have been on the forum. Sooooo I decided to put up a foal watch. Seems its another Apple!

She was w/a stud from June-August, but judging on her size she was bred sometime in June...Im not sure if she is actually pregnant with a horse but possibly an elephant...not totally sure.

Figured I would start one now but knowing my luck it will be forever now....

I think we are a little ways off yet but...I am not sure if there is any more room at the inn...so I figured I would start.

Yeah I am not expecting something until the first of the month so that would put her bag on track, this is not her first foal but first with us and I do not know "what she does." But it is not abnormal for our mares to look ginormous while pregnant...my mare Cheyenne, the mother of the deceased foal in my siggy was HUGE...HUGE...so was Annie...I thought they were pregnant with hippos...I cant wait though and when I get home tomorrow I will be sure to go out and check her progress.

Did not get any pictures this evening, I was cowering due to bad weather...lol

I went out and checked her and her girl chute was more relaxed than it has been, especially around the bottom, it was kind of sitting open.

Her bag has changed some, it has become more full but not an incredible difference but noticeable. Her fluid is very very light yellow almost clear, very sticky. I will not be expecting a baby until sometime the first of june so I dont get my hopes up for something sooner, lol

She wasnt pinning her ears at me..we had some company coming up behind me and she didnt like them...

No resistance in the tail, very jello-like near her tail head...she doesnt mind me at all coming to her and messing with her...I spent about ten min taking the ticks off the inside of her legs..poor girl...I have not seen her yet this morning but will get more pics

Thank you...I cannot wait to see what she has, the daddy never ceases to surprise us.

I took some more pictures. Maybe I just see stuff but she does seem more v-d in the tummy and her bag has changed since last night...she is so big...I cant believe her hanging onto this until june but she just may do it.

Wow lol your Apple looks quite a bit like our older mare Pet (who is an Appy/QH mare!) Freaky!

Anyway, congrats on the soon-to-be addition! She's looking great! Who is she bred to (color, breed, etc)? What color do you think this baby is going to be?

Oh a couple pics of Pet...she has more white spots and dapples now though...these pics are a few years old at least.

Confetti's Mom,

Dont you love Appy's! They do look alike...your girl is that awesome varnish!

Well if the daddy stays to what he does, I can guarantee a star or a blaze, and some white socks...soooooo...what I am hoping for is a black with snowcap...right at this point I dont care...as long as its healthy!

Daddy is String of Lust out of Imaginate from Sheldak Ranch

Mama is out of Streakin Dandy Don and My Apple Annie

I am expecting MUCHO color out of this one...fingers crossed!

This was from this morning. There was an obvious change in bag shape from this morning to this evening...I think it shrunk...so I dont think we are at the staying full in the evening yet

gallery_19011_1707_37368.jpg

These are from tonight...tomorrow is a full moon...not getting my hopes up lol. She is becoming more relaxed in the vulva but will squinch it up a bit when she knows Im back there...but it is much more relaxed. I think I have some time to be patient yet!! But I dont know what her "signs" are so...things still could happen who knows

Well I went out last night and checked on her, her bag had definitely changed, much fuller and teats pointing down but not as full as I would have thought she was got so...I knew it was coming but was not expecting this morning!!!
