It’s that time of year again that the babies start to come and we sure look forward to it. This year we had 4 mares due to foal in the end of March/beginning of April, before things got too busy with calving cows. Two of the mares were maiden mares (meaning they had never had a baby before) so we weren’t sure what to expect from them. They both did great and both foaled very early; one had a filly and the other had a colt. The one that had a colt foaled 11 days before her due date, and if you know anything about foaling horses, you know that when a mare has a colt she generally goes at least 2-3 days longer in her gestation, and we’ve had them be as much as 2 weeks late. For this little guy to be 11 days early was a big surprise and he was a little bit of a preemie too but he’s doing quite well now. The two older mares had great big colts with long legs and they are both extremely friendly little guys. They all appear to bay/bay roan in color although we won’t know there true color until they shed off their foal coat. There’s nothing cuter than a baby and I sure enjoyed taking these pictures of them, I hope you enjoy them too.
