Jordan is making some quick changes.

I checked Jordan this evening and was surprised at how much she had changed since last night. Her bag is much fuller and her pH is at 6.9.  I will be checking her again in the morning.  Last year she foaled 24 days early and she is now 20 days from her due date so she may very well foal early again this year. 

Jordan is wonderful mare and she has given us great foals. 
  She is such a good mom and her foals usually have striking marking like Jordan and her sweet disposition.

 
We are very much looking forward to our first foal this year.  I'll keep you updated.

It been a rainy couple of days here but with mild temperatures.  We have lots of mud but at least we don't have the icy conditions like so many of our friends in other areas. It was actually in the mid 70s here yesterday and we were able to give Jordan a bath.  She was so nice and clean...no longer clean after being outside today.  I would rather have a little dirt on her than make her stay in the stall all day.  She needs to get out and exercise and visit with her friends during the day unless the weather is really bad. 

I am seeing some changes in her this evening. Her bag is increasing in size but not quite full yet.  Last year she foaled 24 days early so we are checking her closely every morning and evening. I'll keep you updated on her progress.

Thank you all so much for helping us watch her. Please give us a call if you see anything we should be aware of.

Have a good night.

It's time to start watching our mares and waiting anxiously for the arrival of their precious foals. This will be my first year to go through a foaling season without Wes with me.  Even when he could no longer physically help with the mares he was always watching with me and loved seeing the new babies.  Even though things are different, I am really looking forward to this foaling season and I'm glad to be able to share it with all of you.
 
We like to bring our mares in at night when they are about a month from their due dates.  We now have Jordan in the barn each night. Her due date is Feb. 9th.   I'll be posting updates on Jordan as she progresses. 
 
Thanks for watching with us.

Thursday Evening

The mares and babies are enjoying the warm weather and the spring grass.  Alexa and I were visiting with them in the pasture and I got a few pictures.

 
 

 
Karma is slowly progressing but it looks like she will keep us waiting a few more days.  Her calcium test is at four squares (5 is the max) and her pH is still high.  We are checking her morning and evening and I'll update you with any changes.

Saturday

As many of you know, we had to say goodbye to our wonderful mare Rosa this week.  She was one of the three original mares that we imported from England as was very special to all of us. We will miss her very much but know that she is now pain free and running in green fields.

 

Thanks you so much for all the messages and prayers.  We appreciate you all so much.

Karma is our last mare due to foal this year and her due date is April 13th.  We are watching her closely for changes and will keep you updated on her progress.

Tuesday Night Update


Evenstar foaled a beautiful filly around 4:45 AM yesterday morning.  It took Evenstar a while to pass the plancenta  but she finally did and is doing great now.  Her filly is just beautiful and is so sweet and friendly.  I took a few pictures while they were outside today.  She loved being out and would run and play, nurse , take a nap and then start all over. 



 
I hope to get new pictures of all the foals in the next week.

Karma will be our last mare to foal this year.  Her due date is April 13th so we should start to see her making changes soon.  I'll keep you updated on her progress.

Sunday Night Update

Evenstar is showing signs that she is getting close. Her calcium milk test is at the max and her pH has dropped to 6.3.  Her bag is very tight and her milk is turning white.

We will be watching her very closely.  I hope you can join us as we welcome her foal.

It has been a beautiful Easter day here. I hope you all had a great day.  Happy Easter.
