PostSubject: Foal Cam - Kallie (5/14) @ Meadow Brook Stables FILLY (5/8)   Fri May 01, 2009 11:44 pm

Here is the link: http://www.marestare.com/cam.php?alias=meadowbrook

Don't be surprised if you don't see her in the shelter for awhile, she still has access to her own personal paddock so she can come and go as she pleases, but all of her hay is in the shelter so eventually she will show her beautiful face. During the day I will probably have the camera facing the paddock. Still trying to figure out the best position for it so bare with me if you notice it in a few different locations for the next few days lol!

Yellow Mount F W S, 'Kallie', is a 12-year-old Bay Tobiano APHA mare. This will be her 7th foal (so far she has had 2 Sorrel Tobianos, 2 Bay Tobianos, 1 Black Tobiano and 1 Red Dun Tobiano), but this will be her first foal with me. I don't know any thing about the signs she showed for the first 5 foals, but for the last one she carried 10 days past her due date, held the baby up high and tight (barely looked pregnant) the whole time, and didn't develop an udder until shortly before foaling. This year she is following a MUCH different trend! She started building an udder on April 8th, and it has slowly been getting bigger each day. Her vulva is slowly starting to relax more, and April 29th was the first sign of wax. Just the tinyest amount on her left teat, and this morning she also had a tiny little bit, again on the left teat.

She was bred to Coosa Kind, 'Laddy', he is a 8-year-old Red Dun AQHA stallion. Kallie was bred to him last year and produced a handsome Red Dun Tobiano colt. We are hoping for a colored filly, but will take anything as long as it is born safely and healthy! The color possibilities are as follows (although we suspect that Kallie is Homozygous for the Tobiano gene):

Offspring Color Probability (If Not Homozygous For Tobiano)

18.75% - Red Dun Tobiano
18.75% - Chestnut Tobiano
16.41% - Zebra Dun Tobiano
16.41% - Bay Tobiano
6.25% - Red Dun
6.25% - Chestnut
5.47% - Zebra Dun
5.47% - Bay
2.34% - Grullo Tobiano
2.34% - Black Tobiano
0.78% - Grullo
0.78% - Black

Offspring Color Probability (If Homozygous For Tobiano)

25.00% - Red Dun Tobiano
25.00% - Chestnut Tobiano
21.88% - Zebra Dun Tobiano
21.88% - Bay Tobiano
3.13% - Grullo Tobiano
3.13% - Black Tobiano

We have her out in her own grass paddock with her own personal shelter. We will allow her to foal outside providing the weather permits, if she starts showing more signs and we get a bad spot of weather then I will probably section her off in her shelter. She is a very quite mare and tends to be shy around strangers. She was very timid and flighty when she came to me but is much better now!

If you notice her showing signs and that I'm not posting on this thread then please try calling my cell (902) 986-6999 and if you don't get a response on that phone please try calling my best friend Anna (902) 233-4370 she knows where I am 24/7. The extra eyes are greatly appreciated especially at night! I will post many updates on her behaviour and changes in her body as time goes on!

Thanks for watching!

Now some pictures for your viewing pleasure . . .

Yes she certainly has had some pretty cute babies! And all the foals that I have seen from Laddy are very well put together! Only 12 more days to go! But who is counting hehe.

Kallie is much more comfortable in the shelter now that it isn't trying to blow away lol. And I will feed the most of her hay in there, but the little tiny shoots of grass are just too tempting right now to pass on hehe. We currently have it set up to switch between the two cameras, so one is the inside of the shelter, the other is part of her paddock. Going to try to think of a better place for the outside camera.

UPDATE: Just wanted to let everyone know that Kallie's "shape" is changing. This AM when I checked on her she was still very wide and round, her butt still had a round shape to it and her vulva was relaxed but only a medium color pink inside. And when I checked on her shortly after lunch she isn't looking as wide and as round, her sides are flatter, her butt is turning to jello, and her vulva is even more relaxed and is a dark pink color inside with a tiny little bit of red discharge which we will assume is from her mucus plug possibly.

Kallie's butt is like jello, before it was mainly just around the top of her tail head, but is even mushy down along the back of her butt alongside her tail. She has been holding her tail out all day and swishing it lots but there really are no bugs around. I know she has also been rubbing her butt on the tree from the sticky sap stuck in her hair lol. Her vulva is very relaxed, so much so that the lips aren't close together the whole way down, it is actually pointing outwards in some areas and she has a dark pink/purple color inside. Not quite a deep crimson red, more like this kind of purple. She also really, really, really liked me scratching her butt and she had two small droplets of wax on her left teat.

Looks like I'm not going to get much sleep tonight!

I got these lovely test strips that are made especially for testing mares milk. And even though Kallie's milk isn't looking milk like (it is a cloudy-clear color but very sticky) the test strip matches the test strip colors on the far left on the bottle (foaling range), and according to their website that means that foaling is probable within 12-24 hours!! Now if taht actually holds true or not we shall find out shortly!

I would have loved for her to foal out in the field, but with all the rain we are getting now she is locked in the shelter for the night, she still has a bit 10' x 9' door to stand at (her favorite spot) so it is still like being out side ;)

And here is tonights update: Just got in from feeding supper and tucking Kallie in for the night. She is NOT impressed about being lock away, she started pawing, walking in circles and is currently standing at the doorway neighing (no other horses are responding so not sure who she is neighing to lol). Udder is still the same, very full and swollen looking with some wax on the left teat (about 1/2 a cm or so). Her vulva is relaxed and fleshy and red inside. Her sides are doing a little dance, very twitchy. She ate all of her supper but doesn't seem to be interested in the fresh hay at all and is contenting herself with walking around in circles.

Kallie gave birth to a perfect little filly at 3:20am this morning! I got a call just before 3am from a woman in Arizona that was watching, she said that Kallie had been down and rolling a few times. lots of pacing and pawing (I of course was happily snoozing away!). So I get up and watch the cam for a bit before rushing right out, I didn't want to disturb her! So when I see her try to lay in her water bucket and head on out just in time to see her water breaking. She gets up and starts pushing standing up at first, already a foot is visable. Soon she lays down and starts pushing away, doesn't take long for most of one leg to be visable, I watched fro mthe entrance of the shelter, soon I saw a nose. Waited a bit longer and wasn't sure if there was another front leg or not so walk over to check, thankfully there was! Waited a bit more then it seemed like she wasn't making much progress so I went over and just twisted the shoulders ever so slightly, helped pull with a few pushes and woosh out came baby! I then got out of the way and let mom get down to business. A woman on Marestare recorded the birth so I will post the link for all of you that were happily sleeping :P

Both mom and baby are fine, pretty much text book, baby was up in a short time and walking around, she is 2 hours old and had a few trips to the milk bar, even trotted around the stall some and passed her first poop! Mom was a bit sore on her udder but seems to be doing well now and is happily eating her hay!

She is beautiful....Congrats...Isn't Marestare great...Had that lady not called you would have missed it...I should have gave her my number...Frig I missed it..I have been watching her and Otie steady and missed them both...I also had a few other favorites and I have missed them...But I did see idiots the other night foaling a mare in a tiny box stall...So tiny they had to open the stall door to pull the foal out cause it was wedged against the wall and couldnt get out....

Anyways I am rambling cause I can't believe I missed it...Back to the Dr
s for medication...hahahaha

She is just perfect, EXACTLY what I wanted. Couldn't have had her turn out any better if I were to paint her myself lol. Still not sure on a name, have a few floating around: Tru, Illusion (Lou or Lulu), and Vision (Vi). Any name suggestions would be great!
