    My mare Duchess, who was due 6th Jan presented me with a stunning Bay colt last night. All went well, colt is strong and healthy with 2 white socks at the back and a star and snip.

    Has his dads lovely quiet nature and just the prettiest head....also has allot of leg and will be a reasonabley tall athletic gelding.... probably and awesome polo pony or campdrafter LOL. Although he will no doubt dressage and jump well also :)

    Very happy with what Comanche puts on the ground :)

    I have a mare due in late Feb with an udder heaps bigger than that Lee. She was in the stall next to Duchess and just filled up over night. She is out in a paddock by herself now, away from the foal

    Congrats KC :))
    Saw a couple of pics elsewhere :D but I think he deserves his own thread :p

    Will put up one for my new arrival in the morning. Photobucket isn't being too co-operative at the moment :mad:

    My mare had a Cheval De Luxe filly born at 3.30 this afternoon, got everything on video, was just great, mare waxed up this morning and was very uncomfortable all day. Will post pics shortly.

    Thanks ZaZa ..... I went looking for pics of your baby somewhere else but didnt see them there either LOL .....only pregnant mare photos :)

    I am a bit excited to see you baby ....stunning I am sure.:)

    I will put some photos up of Angus when I get a chance to get some decent ones with the camera rather than my phone. Too hard in the stall and he has only just gone out to the paddock :)

    My girl is waxing and dripping milk today!!
    BUT it's over 40degrees! What is she thinking??
    She has stood under the hose twice already today and going back out soon to give her another hose down.
    Looks like I'm staying up tonight :D

    If you can in this heat, if she goes make sure there is a ton of shade and lots of cold water

    Hey Sil, my mare is due in approx 2-3 weeks unless she goes or anyone got advice on looking after foals born in this kind of heat as I have never bred a foal this late in the year? Would it be better to lock them up in stable during day and let out at night??

    Thanks for the advice Sil, very hard in this weather to keep them cool.

    She foaled just minutes after I posted little b#*@h lol (I missed the birth!). She was closer than I thought! Never would've guessed she was about to deliver a foal, I hosed her and everything!

    Well all is good anyway, they were in the sun but the ground was cool coz I'd hosed her there just 15 minutes before.

    OMG I still can't believe she had it lol. It's a filly too :D:D:D:D

    All is well and I'll start a new thread after dinner, feeding up, getting kids to bed, etc **)
