I just bought a gypsy vanner colt. He was 3 mos. old when I saw him, but because he is still nursing, I won't receive him until a few months. I'm very excited as we prepare his stall. Raising babies is my specialty. I have kept two that were born here, and one scored 4 ribbons at the county fair. I love my kids, but have lots of compassion for the old ones too. emoticon

We've got one mare due in 21 days... beautiful, national caliber, 14.3hh silver grey Arabian mare crossed with our dark bay 16 hand TB stallion, probably his last foal as he has been diagnosed with cancer now :(

My daughter has been looking at colors - we have several dun's - our mare (who foaled on Good Friday - pics are on my Sparkpage) - had a grulla - and the daddy was a buckskin. She is out on a date this week with an appy - color should be very interesting. What we have learned this spring - is horse color is always a surprise. The owner of the appy - said she bred two blacks - that had black in the lineage for generations but still got a red. Genetics is fun, and gets more fun with the diluted genes.

PS - I hate biology - not predictable - due dates are fuzzy. But the rule of thumb for a horse is 11 months 11 days - but mares are remarkable - they can delay a bit.

Cowboy's grandad investment by choice was a buckskin. His mom was his daughter and she was a dappled grey. Cowboy's dad a charcoal grullo. How they got a red dun out of that combination is beyond me. I guess the red must have been real recessive. Cowboy has produced 3 on the ground babies where one was just a red dun with a overoo sorrel, one charcoal grullo with a bay and with sweetheart in 2009 a bay dun with all primitive markings. I would not mind a grullo though. Sweetie's dad" too hard to hold" was homozygous for the tobaino gene so this year we are hoping for some chrome. If the color gods are listening a grullo tobaino would be awesome!

So exciting! I can relate to your breeding colors. We got a red dun years ago. She was supposed to be a buckskin, but I loved her anyway! :)

Good luck! My "baby" is six years old now, so its been awhile since I've been there.

Don't follow where the path may lead...
go where there is no path & leave a trail

The hardest thing about riding...is the ground

Dogs have owners... Horses have staff

Horses are God's apology for men ;)

Riding is good for the Soul

I have a mare that is at 330 days and mare stare officially begins. No she is not part of the foal cam, but I keep staring hoping this baby gets here soon.
Sweetheart my 8 year old bay apha mare out of mr classy norfleet lines is bred to cowboy My former 90% fdqh red dun stallion(former being he got gelded in december) his grandad was investment by choice western pleasure great out of the invester. I have pics on my page but will post a blog this weekend. This is sweethearts second foal and she had a bay dun colt and this time we would like some chrome. She went a lil over last time at 344 days, her bag is filling and getting bigger but we are not quite there yet. I am guessing at least another week but who knows but mama is getting bigger and bigger.
