Today is Karma's due date and we are stilling waiting for a baby.  It's a beautiful day here and we have her outside so she can enjoy the nice weather and get some exercise.  We are keeping a close eye on her while she is out and will bring her in if we see her acting differently.  Her rump muscles are so relaxed that they jiggle.  It's up to Karma and the baby as to when we will meet the new one.  All we can do is watch her and look forward to a new baby soon.

Karma Update

Karma is now 5 days from her due date and we are keeping a close eye on her.  Last year she went out for the day and when we went to feed that evening we found a beautiful filly with her. She goes out during the day but you can bet we are checking on her often this year and will definitely bring her inside if we see her acting differently.  We're looking forward to another beautiful foal from Karma and Prince and hope you can join us for the birth.

Karisma is now three days from her due date and is making changes.  Her muscles are softening, she is testing five squares on her calcium test and her pH is at 6.7.  We are keeping a close watch on her and hope you can join us.

Midnite really surprised us this year.  She certainly didn't appear to be close to foaling when we checked her early evening but she foaled a beautiful solid black colt around midnight.  We have named him Freelands Midnite's Shadow.  I did not have time to send text alerts before she foaled.

Here is a link to the replay of his birth.

Update on Midnite:

Midnite's numbers are finally changing.  Her calcium test is at 4.5 out of a possible 5 and her pH has dropped to 6.6.  Maybe we will see things moving along now.  I'll keep you updated with any changes.

Thanks for watching with us.

IT'S A COLT.............OOPS  NO, A FILLY

When Windsong foaled we announced that we had a colt. We even gave him a name and then when he was two days old we discovered that HE was in fact a SHE.

There has been lots of teasing and laughs around here over this one.

We are very pleased to announce that Windsong and Casanova have a daughter and her name is Freelands Foxy Lady. We will call her Foxy.

I'll get some pictures of her and post them soon.

We are watching Windsong very closely.

Her pH is down to 6.0 and her calcium test is at the max. Her bag is huge and tight and she has heavy wax.

We are hoping for a new baby in the barn soon.
