We had the privilege of breeding a truly lovely paint mare last year and her owner just shared the photo of the resulting foal. Mamma's name is "Princess Joy" so how perfect is the filly's name: "El Gitano Alegre" (The Joyful Gypsy).
Yesterday, I mowed and got sunburned and today, temperature dropping to freezing tonight which pretty much assures that Conesa will foal. This will be Conesa's first by Gitano and although every anticipated foal is exciting, these first crosses are even more so. No sleep for me tonight and guess I'll get out the gloves and winter garb that I had put away!
