When I first bred Belle, it was cause I didn't know what else to do with her. I really like her, but shes so afraid of everything. I had taken her to someone to ride and after 2 weeks she said it would take forever cause shes just afraid and suggested I ride someone else. She doesn't spook, and she seems fine on the ground. I'm not sure what caused this, but its how it is now. So since I really like her confirmation and papers are not bad, I thought I would get a colt out of her and see then. Well the people I got her from offered me a free breeding when i bought her two years ago, so I called them up and went to see hi studs. The first was out cause its her sire, the second was NICE, but...(always a but) he was quite aggressive with the mares and she was so timid, we picked Joe. Hes gentle and quiet, even a little afraid of the mares (it was cute, he comes up to us for feed instead of chasing the mares away)
Anyways back on topic, I was so excited waiting for a baby, then I got Razz and she was bred too and so I was kinda glad Belles baby wouldn't be alone all summer. Then I ended up with Gypsy and shes also bred. Then I was a little worried about getting in over my head, but was kinda glad Gypsy was gonna be first, cause shes done it before and it should be easier that way.
Well as time went on, I realized there was sooo much i didn't know about mares foaling and her I have three, 2 which are new to this. I tried to learn all I could, and some is similar to cows, and some way different. I am lucky to have people who help me and I can ask all kinds of crazy questions.
Now as Gypsy is getting later and later, I am just getting impatient, I want a baby already! I need to get out and see other people and get a normal life. I try to go out and do stuff, thinking it wont be today, but the whole time I am gone I am worried she needs help. Even at night I have to fight the urge to stay inside, I would like to see her all the time so I know its going to be all right. I am totally prepared to miss the birth and I am okay with that, I just wanna go out ans see her and a baby beside her.
On other sides, there is a horse sale in Brooks tonight and I might go with a friend and see what everyone else is up to. Its raining, so everybody in the country will be there.
Oh and yesterday i got to ride Shaken again. Hes pretty fun to ride and its good for me to ride with my left hand, I am super uncoordinated with the left hand, I can ride fine in tow hands, and if i ride one handed with the right hand i am pretty good, but it doesn't seem to transfer over. So he lets me know when i done it wrong, cause he always wants to go to the middle of the arena and stop if I'm not paying attention.
And I think Dinero is going througha growth spurt again cause he is looking gangly and long legged again.
