Foaling time is getting close!

Foaling time is drawing near and as always, I am anticipating the arrival of our first foal of 2012! I love foaling season! Our first mare is due around the first part of April. She is our ASPC mare, Outlaw’s Tap Dancer, a daughter of D&S Tom Collins and out of our Michigan bred mare, Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina. This will be her first foal and also our 2nd cross with a Tom Collins daughter bred to our other Senior Stallion, AE Bey Star. The poor girl is as broad as a barn and honestly I’m not sure if she will fit through the side barn door that I usually use. I might have to open up the big doors to bring her into the barn. She also doesn’t like stalls so it will be interesting to see if she is feeling too fat to argue with the stall or if she’ll throw fits being in a stall. I’ll have to keep a close eye on her that’s for sure. Her foal will be our only April foal so of course, it will be spoiled. 🙂 Did I say that I love foaling season?
