Foaling season is dragging on, as we're still waiting on Libbe, Maria and Baybee to foal. So much for the theory on keeping older mares pregnant! First ET, now Maria (24). Both haven't been bred in 5+ years and one night of fun with (I'm suspecting Frenchie with the three remaining), and we're having a foaling season.
We did take Topper's mares out last week, so he had about 3 weeks to do his magic. As this was his first time pasture breeding we'll see which of the mares did get covered.
Took some photos a week or so ago FINALLY of Ringo (thanks again Jenn for helping out!).
It was about time considering all I had were yearling ones and he's now seven! These are right out of the field, unclipped, so he's a bit flyaway looking but at least we have a few.
We've been very happy with Ringo's foals - he's picked mares well - lol! Although we'll be happy if he doesn't decide to jump the fence this year! I'm considering rebreeding him to Una next year, as her daughter is just lovely. A gorgeous B mini that everyone that comes out wants to buy.
