Oh for CRYING out loud! Make that a Palomino FILLY :o)!
Wrong! You guys were ALL wrong. Well...with the exception of twelvegates..at least so far twelvegates stands the slim, outside chance of being right with a guess of 357 days.
Persis is 354 days today and is showing NO signs of producing the goods. Really? REALLY??? She was one of two that I managed to get bred before I broke my back last year, and I was thrilled that she was going to have a foal at a civilized time of year and before it got stupidly busy here. It's a conspiracy, isn't it? She's going to hang on to it until I'm so totally sleep deprived, until she's good and sure it's a colt and until she's gone at LEAST a full year. I'm sure of it! Grrrr....

NO. I DON'T like horses anymore! Hrmph! Diane, I think you're jinxing me! Somermist, we were HOPING to go watch Belafonte compete the first weekend in May, but I'm thinking she's going to do everything in her power to make sure that is TOTALLY unrealistic and inconvenient. <grumbling>...I think it's ALL your faults! You're posting photos of cute babies and bragging about them and bragging about ALL your fillies and bragging about how convenient in the day and and and...well...You're not offering me enough support here! Send Tequila! <lol>.

Kathy I sooo feel your pain, and this isn't going to make you feel better, but we have a client mare at 376 today. I am positive on the days, as we inseminated her once last year and I have quadruple checked the records. Plus, I even had my poor husband palpate her not once, but twice, in the last month to make sure she was actually pregnant, and then to make sure that the foal was still alive. And the real kicker is that she just started having a slight increase in udder size in the last 3 days. It's killing me b/c I planned on her having foaled and gone home quite a while ago, and I booked the foaling stalls accordingly, so now space is a little tight
I just LOVE mares!
