I know that usually there's a sticky thread and haven't seen one yet. Does anyone have babies this year already? I LOVE to drool over their pictures, as I unfortunately don't get to have any of my own. Let the pictures begin!

Our first foal is BelNoel. Sorry that I can't load photos here, but she is on my Facebook as well as my "Judy's News"! http://yancey-farms.com/horse.htm
She is Furst Romancier - Rubinstein - Inschallah
Next few are due mid Feb. Just as well - they would be Popsicles! Baby BelNOel is wearing two binkies right now!
I' already starting to get excited too...and I only have 1 due this year...in June!!
Last year I made it until April before I really got excited about babies coming (due dates started in June). Then I logged onto MareStare and did foal watch for anyone whose due date was close everyday...
I've already hit up MareStare once this year...I have a loooong way to go...
My first is due March 20th, but every year I enjoying looking at photos of the early foals arriving in Florida. JY has the lovely filly this year, and perhaps Home Again Farm will be expecting some soon?
You guys are brave breeding for early foals, but then again I see you're in warm climates so it's no problem (except right now, LOL). April 1 is about good for us here in NC/VA, March can be blustery and chilly still for sure.
For me, it isn't so much being brave as feeling like I may need time to get my girls in foal. When I see a perfectly good March heat I don't seem to have it in me to ignore it. So, February it is because I got lucky. We are very chilly and miserable right now, but compared to most of you guys, we are nothin'.
