    Got this mare and another about a month ago, both pregnant....was told this one would foal at the end of April! We were also told that the other one would foal near the end of May...guess we'd better keep a closer eye on her!!! Isn't he just PRECIOUS?????

    Cute! Momma is gorgeous, too. That's a big baby... She's going to be busy feeding that one.

    LOL, yup. Those are Belgians, a large Draft breed. Bigger than I figured he'd be, though.

    She's got an absolutely HUGE bag, can't believe none of us noticed it before.

    So pretty! I love blonde horses. I don't know if that is what the color is called, but to me they are the prettiest. I hope I look that chipper after giving birth [​IMG] Yeah, right....

    That is one cute baby! Looking at pics like that is tempting. Good think Sugar is a bit old to be having babies. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your babies!

    So you had no idea she was going to foal? Wow.
    I really want to breed my mare, but not sure if I should. Just so much can go wrong. But gosh, I know I could get something super out of her with her build. Especially if I cross with a TB ( My daughter is getting into Eventing ).
    He's so beautiful. Congrats!

    No, no clue she was that close!! I don't get to see her everyday, there are four of us that rotate feedings every day, and I haven't seen her in a week or so, so no clue! We were told the other mare would foal near the end of May...here's a pic of her:
