so this is how my year has gone so far but i got to take you back to last year first
so last year i went and did a thing and went with a build a foal program to get my dream foal and i was like heck why not get one for my boyfriend too so they can grow up with each other
so i have had horses my whole life and her only got into horses cause of me. lol
i had to use out side mares cause most of our horses are grades other then my OTTB geldings and my 2 pure breed Arabian so they didnt fit the bill. so i found someone that was willing to do it and other people have used her and speak good of her so i went and did it
now Fast forward to this year
so baby number one was going to be mine but when baby was born we know there was a Problem we breed a solid mare to a Paint and foal can out as a Solid which foal should of been paint and the color was wrong for what they should of had. so we did a color test which took forever to get 18 days which they said should only take 2-4 days and the stud i picked out could no way be the father and we hit another wall. the foal real father has Appy color in somewhere(sorry i have not a Color genetic nerd so idk the terms are) so now this foal cant be reg. as a Paint or QH and we are pretty sure the Real stud owner will not accept the foal as their cause they would have to go on record about the Appy color. but hey they had a very pretty Grullo filly so i might end up buying her in the end my boyfriend loves her but we are going to do a rebred for next year and pray this dont happen again.
they where supposed to be almost 2 months apart
she was Due end of next month
will after i find out about Baby one color i get news that baby 2 mother has placentitis and has detached 45% and they where trying to keep her from foaling till baby lungs were devopled but last night she went into labor and foal was born dead
also a couple other things has happened
a monnth ago i hit a deer with my car and almost 1k later my car is fix went to drive it yesterday and she decide she is not going to move and my boyfriend get outs and looks and we are leaking transmission fluid. thankfully is was just that the hose was not hocked up to the radar and seems unhurt.
and a couple other things has happened this week my boyfriend has testing positive for covid. now we both are out of work for 2 weeks and i am just a temp and my job so yeah.
and also with the weather change here it has cause my 3 year old filly to get sick now she needs antibiotic twice a day
though i really shouldnt say year cause all has happened this month other then hitting the deer with my car.
so yeah how is your year going?
