Well I had an interesting morning.
For those that don't know, I have
been waiting for one of my mares to foal.
Last night early morning one of them did.
I looked out there this morning and saw
the mare, and no baby. So I went about
my business, got a phone call and while
talking on the phone looked out again and
there was baby. I went out to check to see if everything was ok, the mom was not
very nice and also didn't seem happy
didn't want me around..... too bad though
I got right in there and was petting baby
and she was nickering away. After watching
them for awhile I began to notice that things
weren't quite right, the other mare was
extremely upset, she was running around crying and just totally out of character. I think she thought I was going to help her in some way. As soon as I got near the baby she came running over and then Jill decided she was going to hurt her.I noticed then that it looked like Jade had foaled and not the other mare. Jill stole her baby from her and everytime she tried to get near her Jill would attack. Anyhow I can't get into all the details or we will be here all day, suffice it to say Baby Wanted is with the right mother now and both appear to be doing well. Jade is still quite upset and jumpy, can't say I blame her, that blue..... layed a pretty bad beating on her. She didn't give up that baby without a fight. Funny thing is though, until Baby came Jade was the boss of Jill. Anyhow I managed to get the foal in the barn, Jill almost killed me in the process I put Jade with the foal and then ran around opening and closing gates until I got the she devil away from the barn. That is one scary horse. I hope she doesn't have issues when she foals cause I think I will be staying my distance for a bit. Not really, isn't a mare out there that is going to keep me from the foal.....but I'm not kidding......... S C A R Y !!!!! Well maybe now she will have her own baby. The way she's running around out there who knows? Well enough excitement for me. I have to go check and make sure everyone is where they are supposed to be.
