5 months!

Roxy has finally reached 5 months. Actually, today we are at 5 months and 5 days. We took pictures of the pretty girl today so that we can keep track of how much she grows. At this point she looks totally pregnant to me since I knew her before....but I'm not sure what she looks like to everyone else. What do you think?

This spring, mid April

Today-5 months 5 days along

At this stage the baby should weigh anywhere between 6 1/2-11lbs, be 8-14 inches in length, and should have hair on it's lips and eyes.

Rozzy Ridge

Roz had a big day today. He got new shoes, a hair cut and I took him for a ride. He was a very good pony, athough a little impatient during the "spa" part of his day. Silly boy.

Not looking too bad for an 18yr old! :)

Pasture buddy

Roxanne and her pasture mate grooming each other

Bailey has to stand on his tip toes to reach Roxanne's back :)

Aren't they cute? This is their nightly routine. 

The pretty girl today, before I brought her in.

Maternity clothes and pregnant mare vaccine

The rain has started in the Willamette Valley and I pulled out Roxy's rain sheet. I had to let the belly straps out by a good 6 inches to be able to fasten it around her. If you didn't know the mare you wouldn't suspect that she is pregnant but knowing her prior to pregnancy definitely makes you notice her extra size. She has filled out A LOT.

Miss Rox got her 5 month Rhinonuminitus vaccine today. She will get another one in her 7th and 9th months.

Tarra and I also got the chance to hang out with her today. We brought her in tonight and just spent some time hanging out with her. I pulled her blanket off so Tarra could see her baby belly. We then decided to groom her as well.  As we were grooming I notcied Roxy had her head resting in her grain bucket with her eyes practically closed. Silly girl! She was really enjoying all the love she was getting. :)

Big girl?

If....or when Roxanne becomes a dressage horse she is going to get a lovely pink browband. I did some shopping for her tonight and came up with 2 possibilities.

Light pink flower type pattern

Or darker pink beads

So many choices to make. It's a good thing I have plenty of time! :)
