Amy has found a wonderful new home!
have another Filly! Her name is AMETHYST MJW. Ariel foaled a lovely
filly last night (March 10th, 2009) at 12:40. She went exactly a year (365 days
gestation!) Maiden mares are always so hard since they don't know what is going
on. Had she been a proven broodmare she probably would of delivered at
9:30, so it was a stressful night as she had steam rolling off of her, and kept
rubbing her behind on the stall. That isn't fun to watch when you may have
to go in and physically take the mare away from the side of the stalls and
deliver standing up. However, Ariel finally went down at 12:30 pm and
delivered at 12:40. We are extremely happy with this gal, very fine bone,
great pasterns, one of the longest necks on a foal I have ever seen, nice short
Ariel is a great mom, which we were worried about since she never really liked other foals around. We had a hard time with her as she didn't want to get up and stay up, as she had a lot of cramping. We gave her banamine and still couldn't keep her up. The foal was already up and walking around Ariel. So, before we called the Vet out we gave her a flake of hay, and in true Haflinger fashion, she stayed up to eat! She was still uncomfortable, and was kicking at her belly and biting her sides, but we were able to get the foal

New Pictures taken 4-19-09!
These pictures were taken when we first turned Ariel and AMETHYST out in the arena for the first time. Ariel was very nice and came up to me while I was sitting down and showed me her new baby, and the baby came over and is already letting me pet her and rub my hands all over her. We are very excited about this new addition!
Enjoying time out in the 'big' pasture!
