    Default The check is in the mail . . .

    Bonnie has a date (later this spring, maybe even early summer) with the very handsome and accomplished Sea Accounts!

    After 13 years I'm ready to bring another horse baby into my family for keeps (I foal out mares for other people semi-regularly) and I feel like Bonnie has finally earned her spot in the gene pool by having an outstanding show season last year and by proving herself to be an extremely sound, durable, and just plain easy and fun horse to own and enjoy, year in and year out.

    I bred her mama with the mantra of "yes, I'd take another one like her" and the same holds true for this time around. Naturally she's not perfect and one always wishes for this or that feature to be "improved upon", but this baby is for me and I am very excited! Now to actually make it happen!

    Wish us luck!

    I'm very excited for you - what a nice sounding reson to breed her, and what a lovely choice. I don't breed, but have been admiring Sea Accounts myself, and I am particularly excited to hear about someone breeding to him who I can hear about 'first hand' on this board! Ready to view pics when you have them - ready to see that little dickens come into your family! I'd like to hear a bit more about Bonnie and what she's done, if you care to brag. Nice going.

    Yippee!!!

    You should totally install a nanny cam to catch the momentous occasion (delivery, not conception). What a great reason to have a baby and what a great compliment to Bonnie

    I don't know how you'd find a stallion with a better mind

    YAY!!! Another hopeful dreamer taking a leap of faith (again!) and jumping into the deep end by breeding a beloved mare; there is nothing more exhilarating SO excited for you, please keep us updated on everything, and the very BEST of luck--both personally, and from the collective COTH--for a successful outcome!

    May the wonderful Bonnie and the lovely Cyriz combine their genes in the best possible way. We can't wait to see the result

    This is going to be a great baby! I don't know if you know this, but one of my Holy Trinity mares (the three mares that I stack all other mares against) is a Mountain Pearl baby. I love her to bits and pieces. She could have been anything, but she has settled very well into her life as beloved pet and perfect ammy horse. I have said for years and years that she would be worth breeding. That will probably never happen, but at least Bonnie gets to pass on those great MP genes, and with a fabulous baby daddy. Good choice! Good luck! I can't wait to live through the process vicariously through you!

    Yay!!! Congrats. I've been eyeing him as well though I have nothing to breed at the moment but he's a gorgeous hunk of pony for sure. Best of luck to you and to Bonnie.

    What excitement for years to come! There was a thread on breeding asking why we do this .... duh.... it's for the love, the dream; the whole satisfaction of the decisions, the plan, the waiting, the cuteness , the waiting, seeing them grow up and evolve, learning who they are, starting them right in life, the bonding, the whole darn adventure. Pretty much the real ultimate in horsemanship.

    Hope all your dreams come true! Mine did I now have my 'two' homebreds (my young horse and my youngest daughter) to watch them together and enjoy their partnership to the nth degree! At my age now it's probably my last big hurrah. I can't thank my family enough for being so supportive to let us dream like this. To be so fortunate to be living your dreams in your life, that's fulfillment. But it takes courage and bravery to make the choices to do what makes you so happy in life.

    Enjoy each step of the way, you've been there before so you will appreciate it all the more now.
