    The last foal for Little Church Minis is geting closer to his/her arrival. Chloe's bag got my attention this morning... My dad was already on Mazie watch as the wee one is spending her first day in the back pasture with electric fence--without my supervision. :wink: Even though she's never gotten out--it's good to keep an eye on her just in case. So, after I checked Chloe... Dad got another call to add her to his watch.

    I'll be checking the monitor through the night.

    Chloe is a holiday foaler. Blessing was born on Mother's Day; Claire just an hour before my birthday. Tomorrow is Mark's b-day. Could she be planning for that?

    Will Little Church Mini's last foal finally be a colt? OR will a 6 for 6 filly arrive? :shock: Will it be a buckskin like the last two? Time will tell...stay tuned. :D

    Good luck with your foaling. Hoping for a colt for you. I assisted with foaling the years I worked on a ranch in central BC. Foaling here is cold business with most of them arriving March/April. We didn't have minis. I'd love to be there for this one. How big are they at birth? Keep us posted.

    A colt would be nice, then you could keep Tucker for the name. :)

    I'm sure you'll figure out a name for a filly if you have to.

    Can't wait to see the little one. Just make sure you rest up!

    Yes, I do have Mimisharons number.

    Thinking positive thoughts for Chloe. Hope she times it for you for the weekend Karla. Anxious to hear how Mazie did out in the back pasture today. Glad your Dad is able to be there for you!

    Looking forward to your last baby Karla. Hopefully she'll wait until the weekend so you can be there and watching. I think I'll hope for a colt for you this time!

    Here's Chloe from today! She's relaxed in back, but her bag softened a bit--her teats always separate when she's about ready to go--and while they were this morning, they were touching again tonight. Her tails is braided and she's washed up.

    Mazie did great in the pasture!! But when I was taking photos of her today--I noticed something up with the color under her eye--and it's tearing a bit. Not nearly like before--barely noticeable, but Mark and I got her ointment in again.

    Look at Chloe's eyes... I love them.

    Here she is with Gypsy and Mazie!

    50-50 it's tonight... I wish Kennedy was here--but it's not a 100% like with Gypsy. Her milk is "I need to wash my hands" sticky though... which a step up from "It's fine to just wipe it on my pants" sticky. :wink: :lol:

    Overlander--Mazie was 20" at her last mane hair--that's how they measure minis--strange, I know. :roll: Her canon is 7.25", but I'll check it again now that she's unfolded... multiply that by 4 and add 2" and it's a good estimate of mature height---puts her at 31". :D Her full sister is 34"+
