    I am so excited my Paint mare is due anyday now, this is her first baby as well as ours.

    We had done a ton of research last year and the year before when we thought about breeding her and then really couldn't find a nice stud and then he just sort of appeared and everything went smooth from there.

    Now after what seems like and eternity of waiting Valley can foal at any time. I really cant wait!


    Hopeful Valentine (Valley) is our girl

    Good luck!! Congratulations on your impending foal! When was her breed date?

    FYI, for the future, be careful breeding overo to overo. You have a chance of having a lethal white foal. These foals don't pass meconium and usually die within a few days of birth, if not euthanized before then. Sorry [​IMG]

    What are the bloodlines of the stud? Rocki in his name sounds like he is from Dirty Rocki or one of his sons. Those are good horses!

    he is out of Yellow Mount lines who I guess is supposed to be nice....I havent heard of many of the horses on his ped but he is pretty.

    Our mare's grandsire is First Rate who is out of Mr Norfleet. She comes from really nice showstock. Someday we would love to breed and show APHA horses but right now with a lack of time for such a big endeavor we will settle for one baby!
