Maybe baby for Baybe - HC Minis 2017
« on: January 10, 2017, 01:45:42 PM »

I'm not going to get my hopes up or hold my breath, but Baybe looks suspiciously lopsided.
Che` gives whole new meaning to hand breeding, so I really don't see him getting Baybe bred without help, and I don't recall doing any hand breeding last summer.  [I'll have to check my calendar.]
Too cold to get a current picture, so just a couple pictures so  you know who the potential parents are.
Baybe, sorrel pinto; and Che' silver buckskin.

Ok, I have a note on my calendar the end of June, about Che` trying to cover Baybe, so perhaps we have a shot at a May baby.  But, as said, I'm not holding my breath.   I didn't turn in a stallion report for him, so if she does produce a live foal, we'll have a late report to send in and a late fee.

I think it's going to take a whole lot of crossed fingers, no babies from her and Che` in going on 5 years.  I bought her bred the fall before I got Tilly, she lost her foal to a late term abortion; Tilly is going to be 5 in the spring.  [So, I guess that's 4 years of no babies from them. They are turned out daily together, but as I said, Che` gives whole new meaning to hand breeding.]

Weather permitting, I have hooves to trim in a few days when it's supposed to be in the teens instead of hovering around zero; I'll try to get my camera out there, but hard to see much through all the hair.

Well, Chanda, if you do get pictures....she won't be the only mare who's so hairy down there-y that we can't see anything. Maybe this year she stood in a hole and squatted juuuuusst right!

Still just a maybe.  Don't know if it means anything, but she's more stand-offish than usual.

I'm not going to hold my breath or get to excited, but will have positive thoughts that she is bred this year.
