Figured I'd start her foaling thread now that we are getting closer and getting bag development.
Calypso is bred to Pale Face Dunnit. Yes originally it was supposed to be V but we ran into complications after trying for a few months, so as a last attempt at not losing the breeding I switched to Calypso with vet's agreement.
Foal will be AQHA/APHA. PFD is a dunalino ee AA and calypso is EE AA, so only colors possible is bay, bay dun, dunskin, or buckskin. She foaled 340 last pregnancy, but seems to be ahead of her pattern from last time, this year.
With last foal by different sire.
Boobage yesterday at 293
Me and my boyfriend left Friday around noon for our trip from San Antonio, Texas to Phoenix, Arizona to get my new horse. It was a 1007 mile drive one way. We made it there Saturday just before 1 pm.
I tried out the horse..... And loved her! She's so sweet. No buck, kick, bite, rear, nothing.
Her only bad habits that I could find are that she doesn't stand still when held or tied. She doesn't pull back, but she paces. And she sticks her tongue out constantly plays with the bit no matter what.
Both things can easily be fixed though, so no worries about that.
She was bred as a 3 yo to the biggest stud the people could find at the time and the baby was so big it had to be cut out of her. She's nearly 7 now and is perfectly healthy. She just needs a couple stitches so she doesn't make noise when she runs. And if we ever choose to breed her, some other stitches need to be removed first.
I'm not into the breeding thing, so she will most likely never be bred. But my boyfriend knows about...
I don't even have my 2017 foal born yet, but Chloe is being bred again. I have a sort of relative thread on this, but this one will be the official one.
A little history, I won a breeding at a benefit auction to Copy Cat. Copy Cat is a clone of High Brow Cat. CC is unshown, but is broke to ride, he's unshown because he's worth more as a breeding stallion than a competition horse.
To start my 2017 breeding journey, I was put in contact with a guy in Ocala Florida who does the mare care and foaling out for some friends, he also works in conjunction with a very good repro vet. I took Chloe to Florida February 26th, she was checked the following day but was in her transitional heat. I got a phone call this morning saying she'd been checked and the semen has been ordered, Chloe will be bred tomorrow!!!!!!.
I could barely finish my work, I was so excited!!! This will be an embryo transfer also, as I have...
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.
