    I bought an ineutero friesian foal back in september. Its due in two weeks.




    I cant believe 26 years of waiting is two weeks from paying off. Oh my goodness. That little girl always staring longingly at the fields passing by wishing just one of those beautiful horses was mine, that little girl finally gets her horse!


    this is the mom at the bottom of the page (last friesian mare) Trynke

    This is the sire! anne 340


    Iam counting down days. I wonder if it'll be a filly or colt. *sigh*

    Good for you!

    Being one of those 'little horse-girls' never ends -- :)

    I bought my first horse (and he was the love-of-my-life!) for myself on my 40th birthday --

    I am very happy for you!

    Awesome. You will love horses - they are way more addicting than chickens [​IMG]

    I bought him before the mom went ster, and bought it on a payment plant- cost me 7500. The mom went ster about 2 weeks after I signed the contract. GAH! I didnt have the money at the time, but it was one of those things where it was just time. The heavens aligned, i felt the Lord said go, and bing bam boom it all came together on the fly. It was amazing.

    I've been working with and on and around horses off and on now for two decades, I've never trained my own horse, but I have a good network of trainers to help me if I run into snags. All the education in the world is useless until you put it to work, and this foal is going to be my 1500 pound guinea pig... lol. 20 years of reading, watching and learning is about to be put into practice. I cant wait.

    I wish I could be in the barn watching. Waiting. I'd seriously probably live in the barn if it was my mare. Or at least closer to home.


    edit: I say HIM but I have no idea what it is. This is the 4th foal this mare has had at this farm, and she's only thrown fillies thus far. oh i cant wait.

    Quote:Oh golly. He's gorgeous. I prefer the baroque style to the sport myself, but I couldnt pass up the hair Anne 340 passes down.
