Title: Not babies any more, the big 4 year olds...
Post by: Chanda on August 04, 2016, 08:01:50 PM
Here are my two boys from Topper's first crop in 2012, so they are now 4 and geldings (gelded in 2014).
They aren't as fat as these pictures seem to show.

Oops, guess I should have labeled it for those that weren't there when they were born.
Both are by Topper, bay son of Buckeroos Top Cat.
Manny is the silver smokey black on the left; he's out of Bonny (cremello daughter of Little Kings Buckeroo God).  Monte is the grulla in the middle; he's out of Tana (granddaughter of Hilltop's Little Vegas).
And, on the right is Dakota, he's my first mini, another Buckeroo grandson; he's 12 this year, I think.

What a great photo , As i glanced over towards my PC screen I actually read the topic of the thread as " No more Babies"    Thank goodness that wasn't the case :)

I wear glasses for the computer - Might need to get my eyes tested lol

They are growing into  strapping young ladies and gentleman :)

I'm especially fond of Monte.  I only had 1 grullo colt born here, and Deb has him now since he was pure Falabella, and I just love their coloring!  So pretty!

If I breed them again, I have a shot at another, although a filly of any color next time from Tana would be nice.   Might not wait as long next time, perhaps will try pasture breeding again next summer.  give Topper an extra week to get all 3 girls.

Don't hold your breath for a Tilly baby, hinnys are hard to get.

You guys keeping praying, and maybe it'll happen, but I'm still not holding my breath.

Well, honestly, I'm not holding my breath either, as my grandkids would not be happy if I stopped breathing over a waiting on a long-ears baby, but I am crossing everything!!

It's not worth turning blue and passing out. 
I got sidetracked with the trip to the vet, so missed my opportunity to hand cover Baybe, she was in for a day or two before the trip, but I've not seen Che` interested since.  Rats.

I wouldn't know, I haven't seen one yet.  She lost the only foal she had here; she came bred and slipped it the year I brought Tilly home.   And, she only has one registered foal; but I'm pretty sure she had like 4-5 before I bought her, just not all registered.

Oh, I'm thinking of another mare, I guess.  Maybe it was Mary at Target that had a Baybe or Baylee, that produced some beautiful babies.

Sorry I got confused, but this old mind, and so many horses over the years!   :-[

With all the ponies in your head, it's no wonder you get mixed up occasionally.
