so much has been going on in this part of the world. But first, Missy mare was giving all the signs of pregnancy but, when taken to the Veterinarian, was found not to be pregnant. Will try again next year. Rescued a calf separated from her mother. had a short and small cattle drive and other interesting things.
In the recent rain, while attending to the mare's evening feed, the droplets collected slowly while under the shelter of a tree. A bit of a chill to be sure and the last trimester foal wriggled in protest which caused the mare to "dance" a few steps. By gently rubbing the mare's underbelly, and indirectly the foal, they both settled down more peacefully. Missy mare is becoming more "needy" for attention as she gets closer to her time. It is my guess that she would prefer to have me by her in the pasture at all times now.
More work at the ranch, where the mare is quartered, so that my postings will be hap-hazard. As the saying goes "I do not have a life, I have a horse." Add to this "My veterinarian drives a Porche, see horse for details." I have added pictures of the stallion the mare was breed too and the mare starting her third tri-mester.
