    Red face So nervous and excited!: Update: It's a girl!!!!

    I stand a lovely stallion who throws some exceptional babies and really stamps them. The first time I bred for myself, my mare broke her leg while foaling and had to be put down. We nursed my beautiful "Me Fuerst" ourselves as we could never find a nurse mare. I get my beautiful girl to age 3 last year, and she develops a fever of unknown origin, founders in all 4 feet, and can't be saved. I was DEVASTATED.
    Of course, because of the whole birthing experience, I hadn't bred any more mares for myself, as I was too afraid. A week before I lost my little girl, I had taken my beautiful TB mare, Pine Island Girl, (aka Ellie Mae) to the vet to be bred to my boy. We got her in foal, and I lost my 3 yo.
    Soooo......now, here we are. I have just dropped Ellie Mae off at the maternity ward of my amazing repro vet. I'm so nervous...and excited...and nervous!
    Here is a picture of her from yesterday before we left:

    My vet is thinking she will go this weekend, but she's a maiden, so who knows.
    Her foal cam is here:

    My beautiful Ellie Mae had a gorgeous, leggy filly this morning just after midnight. She is such a little sweetie and I am loving how she is put together! Her show name will be "Fuerst Fury" and I am playing with either "Floppy" (the ears!) or "Twiggy" (The legs!) as her barn name. Can't wait to bring mama and baby home tomorrow!

    "update: it's a girl" - that's IT?

    Aww, congratulations! What an awful experience for you the last time around- glad this delivery was much smoother...she is just darling! Isn't it a good thing that they grow into those ears?

    What you went through the first time was devastating, to say the least. Congratulations on a successful foaling with Ellie Mae. Jingles everything continues smoothly for mare and filly!

    Fuerst Fury, aka Twiggy, is now home!! We brought her home from the vet today with her beautiful mama. They have settled in well and are doing great. Twiggy's legs are sooooo long! I am so happy to have her home, and I think she's perfect. Not that I'm biased.
    Here is her pedigree:
