    My alleged warmblood filly....

    They must have got the semen mixed up, because my little warmblood is resembling a welsh mountain pony. We are going into winter here, so not overly worried about her weight, though she is on the porky side.

    Tiff foaled a little filly.... Pic overload

    Here are the pic's of my lovely mare Tiff (Amiro M) and her filly foal (Luidam) who foaled early hours of this morning. The foal who's stable name is Sookie is so brave. Mum is a little foal proud though, but this is her 1st so can be expected. What do you think?

    Colt or Filly, bit of fun

    There were taken today. Tiff is 10.5 months now, and a maiden. I read that some experienced breeders can have a pretty good guesstimate at the sex by the way the mare is carrying. Can all you breeders have a guess at the sex.
