Pips is due from the end of next week (3rd May onwards) if you go by the book. Given that she is a maiden mare who knows what she will get up to! No matter what I know the foal will be black. If it is any other colour something has gone seriously awry!!!

She has changed shape in the last few days alot and her boobies are coming in properly now!

If anyone looked through the pics on my phone for the last week they would be slightly worried ... dozens of the same pony from all angles and a couple of her boobies every day!

Happily in for the night for the first time in a few years to settle before she foals.

The stallion is a 41.5" solid jet black shetland with a star and small snip. Though the star has expanded with agem he is 28yo this year. The foal will be black, it can't be anything other. But it will be interesting to see if it has any white on it. The stallion has put a few white hairs or small stars on the forehead of every single foal he has thrown. The mare has white flecks through her body, not enough to be called roan though, plus she doesn't have the genetics to be roan.

She is rocketing out of her stable every morning like a demon possessed! She isn't due for another week yet and I think she will more than likely hold out that week, if not a little longer. But she is happy in her stable over night which is the main thing given she hasn't been in a stable in about 6 years! Don't get me wrong as soon as she hears me in the morning she kicks the crap out of her door to be let out! She is quiet as a mouse all night bless her.

Mum's doing fine, she is absolutely besotted with him! For a maiden mare she has got the hang of it all very quickly. She's tired as expected but is quite happy with her little bundle. Plenty of unfolding still to be done so he will be a completely different pony in a few days time!
