For the up and coming days/weeks i shall keep all of my updates on this thread so not to annoy people:) I will be posting lots of pictures and i hope that again doesn't drive people potty but i would have loved to know Tessy Bears mum and foal pictures so this is a way of making memories for whoever eventually is sold Mini T when the time comes.

So I’m not quite sure how far gone she is at the moment :eek: so we will call this day 1 of the 2 weeks to avoid confusion :D

Day 1:

Well the snow that threatened us this morning vanished and the day turned out to be beautiful and got to a very hot 5 degrees:cool: i know what you are thinking... SUN:eek::eek: what is that?:D Hopefully the sign of spring will be with us soon and i hope so do not want Mini T going out in snow :) We pottered across the road today on the lead rope to a lovely big verge owned by the council and did a bit of in hand grazing whilst mum walked the dogs up and down the dike beside of us, after grazing for a good 20 minutes we returned home where we took her rug off:D she didn't melt, vanish, combust or shrink so all is good :cool:

Then she was brought back in after a good 4 hours in the field and bedded down in a sparkly clean stable with a large haynet and some tea:) I sat with her for a good hour and took some photos, watched Mini T have a disco in her belly and got farted at :rolleyes: Tess is starting to look fed up and has turned round to nibble her sides sometimes when Mini T is in the middle of doing gangham style.

Not long I suppose so here is todays token photos :)
this is the HOW THE HELL COULD WE NOT TELL SHE WAS PREGNANT ?!? photo:eek:

The im still stunning photo:

Kisses !

and the Tess has just farted very loudly prior to taking photo :D


Im so excited now just like you all said.... terrified yes... The "nursery" is on the go we have penned the field off and tried to foal proof it :cool:

Yes but a home born foal is a member of the family!! Just do "big eyes" as my daughter calls them, and say "you kept ME so we must keep our baby foal" :)

Oh WOW! That V-shaped belly is definitely a tell-tale sign of days rather than weeks.... especially with her saggy bottom (said in the nicest possible way! :p)
Oh lawd, she better give way this weekend while we are all off :eek: and our Amazon order of books better get here :eek::eek: headless chicken mode again ?:p

What a lovely thread:)

I will be following this with lots of hope for everything going smoothly for you all. My guess is she'll drop on Monday night...just before you have to actually get up and do something the following day :eek:

Thank you lovely :) well goodness knows what could have happened if she had gone to someone who couldn't financially afford a youngster :(

:p Tess has her own little fan base now :)

Bridgnorf, innit!
Don't know if anyone else has warned you, don't be upset if Tessy gets protective or her baby and turns a bit nasty for a few days.... it's all perfectly natural and means her hormones are working correctly... and it doesn't last. She will come back to you within a couple of weeks so don't try to force things. It doesn't mean that she doesn't love you anymore!!! Just try to make sure you are never positioned between her and the baby in the first couple of weeks.

Oh no , no vet has wanred us but we already had an idea she might :) Its normal i think as humans we are protective anyway its natural :) We have all the time in the world do things nice and slowly and at their pace

I'm terribly excited - weird because I don't know you at all :D I too have been following with interest and actually checked my phone as soon as I came out of my meeting in Birmingham yesterday to see if there was any news and then on the train on the way home. :eek:

There is something really special and lovely about a new life coming into the world.

Will definitely be following this - Tessy looks like a lovely mare and I can't wait to see Mini T :)
