Well, what a month!
Two weeks (from the 15th to 28th April) we’ve seen the delivery of four healthy foals!
At 344 days Catori gave birth to an unusually marked few spot colt, six days later at 349 days PP gave birth to a buckskin few spot filly, which we will keep because the odds for another is quite high (50% filly, 50% buckskin and 50% homozygous). This is the 5th foal born at the stud on the 21st of April!
Another six days passed and we saw just before midnight the safe arrival of Evee’s first foal, a filly born at 333 days on Friday 26th. With what seemed like only a few hours sleep…we sat waiting and watching our second maiden Myka deliver her leopard colt at 355 days (just past midnight) on the 28th.
All our mares are exceptionally well and being great mothers to their foals, all the foals are healthy and have all straightened up and now running around the field.
To be honest, April has been a blur, there are many emotions of foaling but the best sight for any breeder is the view of two feet and a nose!
From the delivery, the foals all managed to latch on and all the mares passed the placenta (all intact). We do consider ourselves very fortunate especially seeing what unfolded before us!!!
