HA! I TOLD EVERYONE ... it's the year of the filly!!!
You have NO idea how right I hope you are. I have one due 5/20 (my only one this year) & I know it's chestnut but it had better be a filly. If not, I am putting it back. Mom is 23 & I'd really like a daughter to keep. It does seem to be a filly year though. Good becasue I am batting 100% colts so far.
Just got up to do morning chores. Then yes, I'm going right back to bed. I'm pooped.
Carosello ... pictures will be forthcoming this morning. When I went to bed last night the last info I had was that the baby was "loping" (*giggle*) around the stall last night. And I DO know how to follow directions. Mama was given invermectin before baby nursed. I'll e-mail you in a few minutes.
Vet will be by this morning to check baby. Around 10:00 - 10:30.
All participants agreed last night that her barn name will be April. Working on her proper name. First suggestion last night was
"Wild Heart" ... which is ok. But not great. Her Daddy is Wild Card. And SURPRISE!!!!! She's a chestnut!!!!!
