They held out last night, so the first night of our nearly a week of rain didn't bring forth a baby.  Hope they continue to cross their legs for a few more days.   This morning, they shared pellets out of 3 pans in the run-in (well 4 mares and 2 pans in the run in and one mare with her own dish behind the windbreak).

Just a little something I'm working on while waiting...  Waiting on foals til whenever they arrive and waiting on the rain to stop which is supposed to be in a day or two.

Just a little mug run.  It's very basic, about 6" squared.

No picture yet, but I've also almost finished  my sister's quilt.  I have the binding sewn on, but not flipped and sewn over the edges yet.   And, since it's raining, I think I'll try to work on quilting the little kitty quilt and see how far I can get with that while it's wet and rainy out.

No patience for crochet.  My grandma tried to teach me years ago, but I never got past making a chain, and they were lopsided at that.

Thank you.   I'm enjoying making the little mug rugs, they are quick and easy, and turn out pretty cute.

Tested Bonny and Tana tonight, both about 7, they test in that 6.8 to 7.2 range (that range the colors all look about the same to me).  Tana wasn't very willing to share, but got enough to test.

This morning I finished putting up enough panels that they can get out and taste the grass, small space at the moment, but it'll get them started, if they found the open gate, they were still working on their pellets when I opened the gate.   Gotta go bring everyone in, the rains kept them off pasture, so have to start their spring pasture introduction all over again.

Sounds like you're gearing up, and so are they!  I'm praying for good weather for you, and time to enjoy watching these mommas move forward.

Keep us posted, as it sounded like things were moving forward in all the right ways!!

Trimmed a couple today, and they did go out on grass for a bit this morning.   And, I'm thinking that Misty isn't pregnant, she isn't very big for how far along she could be and she was kind of showing to Topper while they were out on grass, but I do know some mares will show to a stallion even when pregnant, so I won't cross her out yet, but won't hold my breath.

Oh, and Bonny is getting dark pink inside; and her bag has increased a bit again.
