    and Im not ashamed to admit I am excited!! She was bred to Leroidesanimaux, who's son Animal Kingdom won the Kentucky Derby this past weekend. I booked her several months ago, so I had a riding interest in this year's Derby. Isnt this boy outrageously gorgeous? Now fingers, claws, paws, and hooves crossed that she gets in foal.

    My mare is a Connemara, and I am sitting here day 358 of pregnancy, waiting for her to decide to foal LOL
    Hope your mare settles, and you don't have as long of a wait!

    awesome, I hope it works! And please pics of the mare also, if it works would you consider racing the foal? I just think with these bloodines it might be good
