Re: Foals of 2020

Wow, that sounds scary. :? This potentially deadly disease is easy to prevent, but it can be challenging and expensive to treat Neonatal isoerythrolysis (NI): This mouthful of a term literally means the destruction of a newborn foal’s red blood cells. The debilitating condition, in which a mare’s a...

Re: What Race Got You Into This?

I was always into horses as a kid, and I was a huge reader back then too. I read The Black Stallion’s Filly, which was about the stallion’s daughter Black Minx racing against the colts in the Derby and winning. I decided to watch the Derby that year and witnessed Funny Cide win the Derby that year. ...

Re: Foals of 2020

This barn has some of the worst lighting and it doesn’t help that the foal is dark bay. This is a Mendelssohn colt out of Switched Up.

Re: Foals of 2020

Mares can have foals naturally after having a c section prior. The risks are slightly higher, but not overly so, assuming she recovers well. I wouldn't breed her this year, but if she were mine and recovered really well, I'd breed her again in the future. Now we don't know exactly what happened tha...

Re: Foals of 2020

Not sure if everyone thinks this, but my boss said you have to breed the mare every other year because it takes so much out of them and that after they have a c section, they can’t birth naturally anymore. Like I said, don’t know if it’s all true. Also there’s only so many c sections a mare can with...

Re: Breeders' Cup 2020

I bought tickets for Saturday. Last time it was at Keeneland I went both days. With the farm being so short handed this year, I don’t feel too comfortable going both days.

I’m kind of worried about her. She’s been going up and down a lot and laying there. Hopefully she can get the foal into position

Re: Foals of 2020

Well the mare finally went. A Twirling Candy colt out of the half sister to Gr 1 winner Nolde. It was weird because she heated up good and then cooled off a bit and then broke water. https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/fr/cp0/e15/q65/89832664_10212338228129328_1928593968359014400_o.jpg?_nc...

Yes it’s normal. At least with the mares here, most of them usually go two weeks over their due date

I’m dealing with a fun maiden right now. Been walking for almost an hour and a bit heated, but not angry enough to foal yet. Maidens are so stressful to watch :lol:
