Getting Ready for Spring

It's getting close to foaling season. Normally I'd be excited at the prospect of seeing the new additions to our farm but not this year. As the projected foaling date gets closer all I can do is pray.I've never been so concerned about a mare foaling as now.

I have put off breeding Solidare for three years. Worried about the condition of her back legs I just couldn't bring myself to do it despite the fact every vet I spoke to was encouraging me to breed her. Even though the mare had dropped some on both hind fetlocks, those vets believe breeding the mare will turn out fine.
