Expecting 3, all going well, 2x Irish Draught and 1 x IDSH. (More blacks , one has a very strong chance of being black, one will most likely be born black but will grey, and I'd give money on the IDSH being a bay)
I got the grey and the black Irish Draughts I was expecting, but was completely wrong about the bay IDSH. The mare ended her run of lovely (mostly) plain bays with a bright chestnut with a star and 3 socks.
Hey everyone! Here's my filly Sky's the Limit aka Sky, born on July 16th 2013. She is by the thoroughbred stallion Sea Accounts and out of my quarter horse mare. She's an awesome little filly! This is my first breeding experience and foal so just looking for opinions on Sky and how she is looking conformation wise so far. Know correct conformation in mature horses.. just haven't evaluated a foals conformation before! And I know they go through many changes/awkward phases before they fully mature! But anyway here's a conformation shot of Sky at a week old (sorry this is the best confo shot I could get of her!)
Thanks so much for the feedback I am SO pleased! She is so much fun. It has been such an amazing experience.. getting to see her birth and watch her grow! She just turned 2 weeks and has already grown so much. Crazy!
Thought I would post an update on my Manchester City (Weser Ems) filly by my Wolkentanz I mare.
La Luna went to her Weser Ems inspection last Monday and the inspectors really liked her (whats not to like about a cute pony baby?) La Luna was given a Premium designation. Her dam, Wolkendame, got some nice scores too including an 8 for breed and sex type and an 8 for overall conformation.
There was a pro photographer there Nature Nurture Photography (Erin Wrightsman) and she posted this teaser on FB:
We finally have a video of my filly by Londontime - Sandro Hit - Rouletto.
The foals of this mare are special. They look good for 2 weeks after birth - than they change into a fat round teddy bear with a pony(winter)coat. Eventually they change back into something that looks like a WB foal.
In some cases this metamorphosis is as late as October/November, but this one decided to look "normal" already in August :-) I rather like her .... :-D
