Well, I said it was over.. HUM.. scratch My best mare was checked not in foal two times last year.. I gave up and thought I would try this year.. She is 22 now and has started foaling every other year.. We really wanted a foal out of her by Tommy.. We also decided if she was done then so be it. She has given us many nice foals and will be with us until she dies.. She is a good riding mare so, no more foals and she earned that..

About 3 weeks ago she started making bag.. Then she looked like she was gettin just a tad tubby.. This is normal for her. She goes all year and then the last month will just bloom and foal.. She was not big enough to foal even though her bag was getting huge. We even saw her show heat all summer.. She never shows heat. She hates boys.. affraid

We were going to have her checked in case something was very wrong like a tumor or something and even talked about maybe having to put her down if that was the case.. We would never let her suffer for any reason..

A few people know that I had a horrible year last year.. My husband got very sick and his heart even stopped at one point. I lost a very high paying job after 17 years with the company. I was offered a great job and was turned down after being bad mouthed by the company who fired me.. My Mother is going through breast cancer and every day scares the heck out of you.. It was the worst year of my life.. I have moved on though and have a job I like that does not pay much and Mom has good days and bad days.. Sad

I know the lord loves me and takes care of me.. This morning I had to run to the barn and thought I might have a two headed snake coming out of my older mare.. (watched her water break on camera in the house) I just knew it was not going to be a good thing. I told my husband to hurry and get out there with me.. She just was not big enough to have a healthy foal if that is what she was going to do.. I was prepared though.. Look what popped out.. Healthy and the biggest foal this mare has ever had.. pray God did this and we call her Miracle..







She truely is a Miracle.. And yes I got to use my new pink blanket.. Mom did retain the placenta and I got to remove that for the first time. The vet told me what to do and I saved a ton of money I did not have.. It was so easy I could not believe it.. We are very happy about this and sorry about the pics.. The snow has melted and I can get them outside soon so I can update my site.. I am just wondering why Tommy held back on the chrome scratch He must be mad.. bounce Very Happy sunny

Mares are funny critters - we had one that could fool everyone - the last foal we had out of her had been checked open 2 times - we palpated in Oct just before we were going to sell her - HA - little bugger was growing to beat the band....

Congrats - Congrats - Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
