And Beretta(below) at 20 days...
Shooter was definitely more filled out than Beretta is. But then, his momma has had babies before and milks like a Jersey cow. Beretta is out of a maiden mare, who is milking good, but first time momma's just don't seem to have the same quality of milk. And little Beretta covers a lot more ground in a day than Shooter ever had to too.
Now if those other two humongous old bats(Cowgirl and Honky Tonk) would have their babies, I would really have something to compare her too. Neither one of them looks to be in any hurry to pop out a baby though.
We haven't even turned the stallion out yet this year. The rain, as much as we needed it, prevented me from moving horses around last week and now this week is gone. So, it looks like Pistol will only get one girlfriend to keep him company this year. I like Beretta enough that I am going to go ahead and breed my bay mare, Beauty(who is a 1/2 sister to Chunk, Beretta's mom) and then when(if) she foals next year...I will be done with babies for at least a couple of years.
And my how times flies....I can't believe I forgot Shooter's birthday. My poor baby boy...I'm going to go see him tonight and I'll get some new pictures. He sure don't look like the same colt as when he was a baby.
