    Default Kissy Kiss is in foal! (UPDATED w/new pics #27!)

    Yay!

    I hope I'm not celebrating too soon but the vet did find an embryo and IIRC, it's about 6-7 weeks now.

    Kiss is very happy with farm life. Although I still haven't seen her in person, I hear she eats a lot and has made friends with her barn mates.

    The stallion involved is the Cor de la Bryere son Chairman. These two should make a very nice foal.

    Congratulations, JER!
    Kissy-Kiss must have really been pampered and loved on to have settled happily in her new home so quickly.

    That foal's going to be able to run and jump. Can't wait to see the little one's pictures. Although, I'm not good at seeing anything in ultra-sounds...

    Congrats! My OTTB mare is in foal to this year. She is by Kipling and out of a Sword Trick daughter. I bred her to Mannhattan (Oldenburg) for hopefully a future eventer.

    Now... waiting to see if my Oldenburg mare is in foal.

    Oh dear. This is a serious question.

    I am perhaps the least huggy/kissy person in the world and I just don't do cutesy. So it's only fate that I've been matched up with a mare named Kissy Kiss. (Full disclosure: I also have a fluffy, airheaded little dog named Dolly and a Dickensian (think Tiny Tim), babyish cat named Sweetpea. The gods of cute have it in for me.)

    My young nieces, who all under age 5, inform me with great certainty that 'Kissy Kiss' is the best name ever for a horse. Maybe I should ask them for a list of suggested foal names?

    Thanks to all for the good wishes...

    Quickly want to add, Kipling was with out a doubt one of my most favorite horses ever. He was such a sweet boy and despite being on the small side he was beautifully built. He had gorgeous movement too. And always happy and willing to please!

    JER,

    Many Congrats. Really can't wait to see this baby!

    Congratulations! I think since "Cor de la Bryere" is a French name, you should consider "French Kiss." Just sayin'!

    There is a smilie happy dance for breeders. Maybe I can share this with COTH and they can add it to their choices! It won't copy/paste here.

    GR8 NEWS!! I was waiting to hear. Lucky horse and great timing for you. Horse people live on dreams!! and make some of them come true.

    You're much better with names than me.

    However, Chairman was a German-bred. 'German Kiss' is not exactly poetic so I suppose I should just pretend he's French.

    And to all those who want to dance, chant and make offerings, I expect a brown filly. As always. Your help is appreciated.

    Kuss-Kuss (which is German for Kiss-Kiss) and should only all the time get mistaken for the grain.
