Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on April 09, 2017, 02:43:27 PM

Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Rocklone on April 09, 2017, 04:21:36 PM
Shes soooooo pretty!!!

I don't mean any rudeness, but has she got a swollen underjaw?
Title: Re: Sassy

Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on April 23, 2017, 03:54:49 PM
Sassy approx 207 days. She doesnt look very big to me. Still waiting to fell the big movement that tells me she is definatly in foal. I really hope she has a filly with more spots than I can stand, I would LOVE a keeper from her!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on April 25, 2017, 04:09:54 PM
The more Sassy sheds the less bred she looks. I'm hoping she is, so this may turn out interesting.
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Rocklone on April 25, 2017, 05:10:13 PM
Oh i think i can see a little bump! My waters tell me she is and i'm irish so basically psychic.

Kate definitely is not pregnant, she's back in season right on time, but I am very happy about that!
This is Sassy second foal, so I really don't know that she will get real big... Time will tell!

The only thing that's too bad...we have to wait until July or August to see what Spots-a-Frass has baking for us.
Title: Re: Sassy

We can wait!!!  SPOTS can take time to bake just right!!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 08, 2017, 10:30:50 AM
Sassy is 3-6 weeks from foaling! She has started a tiny udder and doing the late term rubbing and rolling.
I am beyond excited to see what she has cooking in there!

Title: Re: Sassy

Daily changes!  Makes me wonder if we will get a early foal!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 10, 2017, 07:22:54 PM
Day 285 from last cover date. Sassy is progressing quickly. I still feel movement. I am a wee bit concerned how fast she's moving along. Is this concern warranted being she is still 2 weeks from day 3oo? Earliest I've had a mare foal was 311.
Picture are from over last several days
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Ryan on July 10, 2017, 07:40:41 PM
Hopefully her udder will settle a little , she is progressing quite quickly but you know too well how mares can be , so hoping its just part of that "up and down" period  ;pray
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 13, 2017, 09:06:00 PM
Sassy seems to be holding steady. She's been very uncomfortable. But so far all is well!

How is she travelling Holly :) ?
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 18, 2017, 11:14:24 AM
Day 295. Lots of up and down changes in her udder. Yesterday she got a bath and brushing. She was such a good girl. I love how she has come around.
Feeling very good that she's close to day 300.
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 18, 2017, 07:23:30 PM
She's looking good.  You know I LOVE SPOTS....but I'm really hoping that you get a fewspot colt for your program as wonderful as this year's special little boy, but having 2 PATN genes for you!!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 21, 2017, 07:59:00 PM
I am really hoping for a keeper filly! I adore this mare so much. She is my sweet sass a frass. We have really bonded over this past year. I hope she doesnt decide I am evil once her foal arrives!
No new udder changes but her muscles around her tail head are really starting to relax. The vulva is starting to elongate and were seeing a deeper pink inside.
She has been laying down resting A LOT, pressing and rolling too. Shes not very wide, but its foal #2 so not very low either.
Almost 300 days now so I am preparing the foaling cabinet in the barn. She is on barn cam every night.
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 21, 2017, 09:42:39 PM
So pretty, and standing so quietly.  She really is a pretty girl!!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 23, 2017, 09:12:40 PM
300 days . feeling miserable. But enjoying her stall fan.
Belly dropped now. Udder about the same.
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 23, 2017, 10:04:07 PM
Good news!  Keep us posted.  I'm checking in on her but haven't seen anything interesting yet.
Title: Re: Sassy

Sending  a cool breeze your way Holly :)

Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 24, 2017, 03:11:02 PM
Thank you! I dont expect much in the way of cool soon but at least weve had enough rain! Dry is miserable so this is a blessing. We still have green grass instead of grass spikes!
Meanwhile, Sassy is still hanging the same... I am so excited for big changes!!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 24, 2017, 07:06:43 PM
Just standing quietly and eating.  All looks good.  Regular manure in the stall -- no cow patties, so we wait.........
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 24, 2017, 08:13:14 PM
Vulva looks a lot longer now than earlier. She's breathing really heavy. Still sweating...no-one else is. Saw some foal movement near her tail head.
Gave her some soaked alfalfa pellets. Soaked in cold water. 
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 25, 2017, 06:03:16 AM
I got excited there for a minute.  I peeked at her and she was fully laid flat out on her side. But didn't see any labor. Then checking back, she had rolled up more sternal.

Praying for a safe and uneventful delivery of this little one as I head to work.
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 25, 2017, 07:52:56 AM
Thank you!
Udder up this morning...
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 25, 2017, 09:09:35 PM
Standing quietly eating.  Looks like baby isn't quite in position yet -- she still looks a bit wide.  But, everything is looking good!!  Keep us posted!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: Holly on July 26, 2017, 01:25:45 PM
Udder  is about the same but I am able to get  a lot of cloudy fluid to test. Its not sticky and  ph is 8.4. :)

She is being such a good girl to let me check her. She has changed so much And I just love her!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on July 29, 2017, 02:12:58 PM
Her nipples are finally filled out, it appears, so I'll bet you don't have long to wait.  I've been watching her, and noticed she was quite content in her stall.   ;D

Thanks y'all. Day 310 or 311. Udder down with turn out but gets huge throughout night. Milk same. Baby still wide. Maybe she will get in a few good rolls today.  With as big as her uddergets during the night I am physically checking every 2 hrs.
Ssh pretty miserable and has that pregnant waddle walk.
She's gotten a bit cranky with me for checking, stepped on my foot. But all in all she's doing so much better than I thought she would. I am so pleased with her. She actually asks for attention now. Does my heart good!
Title: Re: Sassy
Post by: dcwolcott on August 04, 2017, 04:24:52 PM
That's a notable character change, so sounds like she's moving forward very nicely!!

I've been lurking, and watching! Funny thing is, on my laptop using Chrome browser, I can't watch her livestream. No problems on the cell phone though......I just have to hold the screen reeeeallly, REEEEAALLLYYY close to my face!! LOL

Here's to an uneventful foaling in the next week or so!! *clinking glasses*
Title: Re: Sassy

The caveat to that is.....I can use Chrome on my mobile device, and must use Internet Explorer on the laptop. Either way, I get to peep in on her. I see her tail is wrapped again...must be getting closer! ;pray

Because we're all anxiously awaiting and you need toothpicks for your eyelids, thus she can cross her legs til you can't stand it any more and run for a coffee or pee break.

I can't BELIEVE she's still pregnant!  I was so afraid I was going to miss it.  I was out of my office most of the day, so couldn't cheat and check on her. 

Okay little momma......NOW is the time.  I'm ready if you are!!!!    ;pray ;pray

With all that white under his wet coat, I'd say you have a fewspot with lightning steaks on his legs!!!  Every appaloosa breeders dream stallion!

The cam is offline so I can't see him, but I'll check back later to actually see him, since I missed his birth.

Oh, I can see him!!!  You just brought momma something special to eat, and he is simply lovely!!!!  She cooked those SPOTS just right!!!  Nice and leggy and I hope he has only good attributes from his daddy so he becomes a perfect stallion for your breeding program, since he's not related to any of your mares, I believe?  As a fewspot, he will produce appy foals from every mare, solid or not, and some pintaloosas from any pinto mares!  An appaloosa breeders dream!

Only related to his mom... Who is wanting me to stay far away from her foal . were having a bit of a difficult time nursing so been syringe feeding colostrum.

He is quite a cutie. Hard to get clear pictures in the dark stall so doing best I can.

;D ;D Congratulations!!  ;D ;D

I checked in at 0200, 0300, and 0500, at which time my phone wouldn't stream correctly. (Kept playing as a negative shot.  :o )

I saw him at 0630, watched him wait quietly while Mom rested and saw him nursing and then pooing just now when we got home from walking.

Only horse people get excited when a new baby poos!!

Glad he's here and doing well. Again, congratulations!
