Checking In

We are chugging right along towards April 19th. I am so looking forward to meeting this little guy! Roxy is doing well and may even be a little bit fat. Oops! Her placenta is being checked tomorrow. We have reached another spot in her pregnancy where foals are commonly slipped. Checking her placenta could give us a head up on any potential problems.

The last week has been super rainy here in Oregon. Roxy was in for a couple of days. Friday I spent some time grooming her and took her over to the arena to stretch her legs. I haven't taken her over there since we decided to give her time off, and bred her. Because of this she hadn't seen the new mirrors that have been put up in the arena. Of course, being the bold girl that she is, she puffed herself right up and trotted on down to check it out. She is such a cutie. She never did roll or even run around. She would trot if I jogged along with her but that was about it. Here are a couple pictures. The quality isn't very good as they were taken on my cell phone.
