We're Having a Foal

The vet came out today and ultrasounded Miss Kitt and she's definitely pregnant. Yeeha, Yeah.  I'm saying this even though Tommy is saying, "my foal won't have any friends./ Who's going to play with my foal?"

Why won't our foal have any friends?  I'm hoping those of you who have raised foals might help me here.  OK, here's the backstory.  Kitt has lymes. Her numbers were off the charts and she tossed me, knocked me out and bucked her way back to the barn.  I should not have ridden her, but that's another post for another time. I took her to a barn where they are wonderful about giving meds.  She was pulsed on doxie for 18 months. But still her numbers were off the charts.  I love her, she's my best friend, and so selling he was not an option. I went on line and found a vitamin regimen that put the mare into permanent remission. I tried it and it worked.  My results have been so amazing, that the huge time equine vet who treats the thoroughbred racehorses and warmblood show horses is recommending this to all of his clients whose horses have lymes,.

My girl got pregnant right way and tomorrow, I'm calling my high quality vitamin supplier and getting her on mare and foal and she will have mare 14 feed for her last trimester. I expect a healthy foal. 

Why am I saying this.  The barn manager owns a warmblood mare worth $40,000. She has uterine infection issues. She has spent over $5000 on an AI procedure that did not work. I suggested she go online and find a vitamin regimen that would boost the mare's immune system to the point that it could overcome the infections. She basically told me, I'm a new age nut and there's nothing that can be done.  HELLO. I have an off the chart lymes mare who has inspired the most expensive equine vet in Maryland horse country to recommend my vitamin regimen.

Kitt knows that she is pregnant. Don't ask me or you'll think I'm a new age nut. She's so happy.  I'm so happy.  Tommy is worring himself to death about how his foal won't have any friends to play with. Stay; tuned. We're having a foal.
