    Well, we are crossing the days off the calendar now - Kim (Fell) is due around 28th April and Marj (Dartmoor) is due a week later. Both Mums to be are 'expanding' and looking really great.

    Anyone else got any foals due in the Spring?

    I have bred two foals (both in my sig) the bay is a TB filly by Andes she will be two in may. The Chestnut is a colt out of my showjumping mare by Polling he will be one in April.

    I dont think I will breed any more as its sooo stressfull, I didn't sleep for weeks!

    You bet I'm excited - the old camera batteries will keep running out when they are here :D

    Oh yes, master to the sleepless night I am :rolleyes: mind you, have sussed out what to do - I get nice and comfy in bed with a good strong flask of coffee and have the tv on with some scary film playing - when it gets to the scary/gory bits I switch over to the foal cam - guaranteed to keep me awake for hours :cool:

    i have one due i the spring andalucian xluciatano
    i am soo exited,
    i am trying to decide wheather to put my three year old in foal next year (she is only 2 now)
    it depends how she grows really
    she is a britishwarmblood out of fulton.
    the mare was out of an oldenburg and uranium who was a big show jumper, so hopefully she will have a huge jump!
    lol
    hope your foals are all ok when they get here!

    Quick update - both the girls are coming along really nicely, looking very 'swell' and last night I had my hand on their tums and felt babies wobbling away quite merrily :D Only about 6 weeks or so to go now so getting rather excited :D

    I'm still waiting LOL! Both of the girls look like rugby balls on legs, I'm on night watch CCTV now and the alarm is set for every hour (just in case) I have turned them out this morning onto some fresh rested paddock to see if a good dose of Dr Green will get them moving!

    Watch this space and fingers crossed :D
