  1. Knowing the power of the PF, I though it would be nice for my beautiful mare Willa to have your good wishes as she spends the last four weeks of her LONG pregancy.

    She is due August 20!

    Here she is, pre pregnancy...



    Here she is, two weeks ago. she just came in from the rain.... not a great pic, but you can see her big belly!


    And getting a little cranky as her time is near!!


    This is her firsts foal, and ours. We are getting a little nervous. She is about two hours away, at a barn with a vet in residence, which we thought was best. We will be "on call" and use a foal predictor kit as the time grows nearer, that will give us 24-48 hours notice.

    Here, by the way, is dad...:heart::heart:
    It was a 'long distance relationship...":graucho:

  2. How exciting! I can't wait to see the pics of your new foal!

    Is Willa a Swedish Warmblood too? I can't see pics of dad.

    LOL at the cranky picture. Her neighbor doesn't looked too phased by it though.
  3. Yes, she is too! She is usually so sweet but right now she is crabby at the geldings!
  4. She is absolutely gorgeous! Foaling time is so exciting, I'm sure you'll both do just fine. Good luck and congratulations to you and Willa!
