My Horse Forum
This post is mostly because manes wanted to see pics of her so that's why I'm showing her here. Here ya go!
She's 18yrs young, she was is an ex pacer and sometimes will still break into a pace if there is a nice long straight away on trail. She has no soundness issues, very sturdy girl and very sweet. Tons of energy and very fast.
So my mare is maiden and is 345 days pregnant, she had showed signs of labor about a week ago, and I think she lost her mucous plug, and now she has lost her bag and isn't showing any signs. The area around her tail is super soft like jello-y, her stomach isn't huge and it seems normal, but it seems to have dropped some. Her back bone is more prominent and her ribs are starting to show when she breathes in, (I've never been able to see either). So my question is how long do you think she has?
Disclaimer- I am 100% positive she is pregnant! And I know she hasn't aborted!
After our ride on Saturday I was hanging about in the arena with Fergie, watching someone using a gel pressure pad to check their saddle fit...so going to borrow that soon.
I was leaning against the rails, when the star teenager came through with her saddle, and starts cleaning it. I'm chatting and Fergie is looking at, kind of sniffing the saddle, not touching, not being rude just close. Star teenager then says, "do you like my new saddle?" Well had to admit I do like the look of it...then the shocker, "I have to clean it everytime I use it, its a $6500 saddle"
Fergie and I very quickly moved several steps back from this expensive thing of beauty.......my horse and saddle combined only cost a third of that
She is a great kid, and her mum works so hard to keep her and her horse in the style they have been accustomed to, but I do wonder if she NEEDS that price of a saddle. LOL, I just would be scared to leave it in the tack room, I wouldn't carry it to the arena to clean,...
Been fostering dogs for years. If everything goes as planned tomorrow, I'll be picking up a foster horse, well a weanling. Not using my barn right now and the rescue's barn and regular fosters are all full so thought, why not?
I'll share pics and details when I get it home!
