Everybody asks about Mini-Mae. It seems she has been in foal for years. Although her udder has filled, she is not interested in delivering a mini-mini-baby any time soon. She was supposed to drop her foal before Mrs. M went home to Washington. This did not happen. She is fat, fat, fat!
So, when do you think the foal will be born? Check out the pictures and make your guess in the comments: 1) Date and 2) colt or filly? Whoever is the closest wins a fun Circle C flashlight keychain. In the event of a tie, I will do a random drawing. Don’t forget to include your first name! (Yes, I know it might get complicated, like “right date but wrong gender” or “wrong gender but closest to the date,” etc. I’ll work it out and maybe have to do a drawing or something.
Also “4 or 5 days from now” is not a valid guess.
Earlier this winter, Mini-Mae had her beautiful silver dapple coloring (winter coat). Yes, she has been pregnant since we got her back in late November (even felt movement). That is a clue for her delivery date. Yeah, right.
Now? Boring brown is the color of the last two months. And yes, this is the very same mini-pony! She is so ready to POP! And so not as pretty as she was last winter. The silver is gone and all you can see are dark “dapples” against boring brown.
But they are checking her every day!
Now, her dapples have almost vanished. And where oh where is that foal? This picture was taken just last week. (I will spare you the pictures of the filling udder.)
So, take your best guess. I will add to this post as soon as the foal is born!
And guess what! My daughter just told me the Andi fans can name the foal! So, after she or he is born, we’ll put on another naming contest. Then I’ll do poll to choose the top 3 names. Then I’ll let Kristi (the mini-horse’s “owner”) choose from those three. It will be fun!
