Jewel is testing around 250 but quiet. She isn't due until July 20th. Jewel has gone 21 days early in 2014 and 19 days early in 2015 so she will be stalled tonight. She is not pacing and is standing quietly. When a mare is in the first stages she will pace and break into a sweat. We have her on the monitor and if that starts we will all be on alert. We may be gun shy ever since that Marika's emergency C section but Jewel has always foaled without incident and this is her 5th foal all by Evan. Jewel's first four foals have been amazing and we expect no less from this one. Her first foal was a gorgeous black filly born August 30th, 2012 we named Olivia.
The next filly born on August 15th, 2013 was a bay filly we named Rhiannon but her owner renamed her SkyFire. Skyfire is now 16.2 hands and competing and winning championships for her owner.
Jewel's last year colt was the first colt she had ever thrown. We think they were all nice but this colt was amazing. He had a trot that floated, his regular trot looked like everyone else's extended trot. He was born June 20th, 2015. But even better than his amazing movement was his sweet loving, want to please disposition.
check out his movement in the video below:
Volley ball is getting ready to start over at the playground. A big group showed up and all had a great time.
Of course we had somemores over the camp fire.
The volley ball court lights needed to be turned on as the games went late into the evening.
Sarah Reinhard brought out lots of fun fireworks for the kids.HERE.
