I'm Counting the Days!!!!

OHHHH I am just getting so excited!! I'm on the count down from now until I get my new foal!! Depending on the time that the couple I'm buying her from reach their destination I could be getting her in 9 days or 10!! The timing is just perfect to because weaning dates are coming up, we always follow the Farmers Almanac and for the month of October the early wean date is the 5th so I will plan to have the others weaned by the time the new filly gets here!! She will probably stay in confinement for a couple of days just to be sure we are clear of any illnesses that she could contract during her travels.. And then guess what?!?! We will be playing another name game because I have NO clue what I'm going to name her!!

She is just born in this picture. She was born at the end of June..

  1. What a cutie. Her current color reminds me of butterscotch or latte.

  2. She is a beauty - I love foals.... We've only had one baby born on our place (that is Smoke who just came home) and good ol' Ace came as a weanling. It makes them so special! Best of luck with that name game.

    Michelle, also wanted to thank you for your honesty on my blog earlier. It doesn't make sense the sadness sometimes. Sending some prayers your way my friend.

  11. I totally understand how you are feeling right now!! A new baby, the excitement of getting them home, finally being able to spend as much time as you want with them...I am going through the same emotions with Chance!
    I think she is beautiful! Can't wait to see her arrive home and hear what name you pick for her!!

  12. Bekkah & BEC~ her dam is Beaus Last Charm and the Sire is Texas Apache. I have 1 other 3 yr old filly that came out of Apache.

    Becky~ Well thanks! And I'm definitely nothing if I'm not honest LOL!! I tend to embrace it when I feel sad because it brings me closer to my dad for some reason...I don't know, but God does :)

    PG~ I am very excited, and I think I might even be more excited for you because I know how badly you have wanted to do this!!

    And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU friends!!!
