    Hey all! We are kicking off our 2012 foaling season, with Lacey our 32 inch black and white miniature pinto mare. She is bred again to our 31 inch palomino pinto stallion, Cash. Hoping for a repeat of last years homozygous filly!
    Lacey is due 3/9 and is bagging nicely.I figure at this rate she should foal by about mid march!
    Her water bucket is in the upper right hand of the screen. Usually I throw her hay in the front also.
    Incredibly crazy this is laceys 5 th year on marestare!

    Remember- Our barn our rules! We assist with EVERY foaling and kidding. We also keep the camera on unless the vet comes, then we turn it off. If you don’t like the way we do things please remember you don’t have to watch!

    phone numbers are on the cam page!

    *please note* call if you think she is in labor or any other issues! I don’t mind getting a call even if its nothing! Warning tho I may talk your ear off! Haha

    When lacey foals, don’t be alarmed if she lays down a lot, as this is normal for her. She usually teaches her foals to nurse while she lays down.
    Thanks for joining us in our barn!!

    lacey is in for the night. no real changes to report. she is sure becoming a real loner in the pasture tho!

    How exciting!

    Cash is quite stunning... Is he the same breed as Lacey (assuming she's Shetland)?
