The BO's stunner of a mare currently looks like a tank and is getting ready to drop her (undoubtedly gorgeous) baby sometime next week (we hope).
Poppet is an eight year old Westphalian mare who has been sidelined by a hind suspensory injury. She was the top selling yearling at the Westphalian auction her year and continued to develop all sorts of well. She's definitely an older, heavier type, but her movement is K I L L E R. Unfortunately, she came off the plane with an injury and not a single therapy, treatment, or voo-doo known to man has been able to bring her back to full work.
She's the most steady, even tempered mare I've met (P should take note) and she'll work sound for about a week before her old injury shows up which is just long enough for everyone to get their hopes up for a full recovery...
So, instead, Miss Poppet gets to be a mommy and we're expecting her first baby (by Alabaster) in a matter of days. Momma has already moved up to her palatial straw bedded 14'x28' box stall maternity suite. The hope is that Alabaster lightens Poppet up a bit (although I like her tank-esque stature..). I really need to snap some shots of her while she's still the size of a school bus.
Stay tuned for BABY PICTURES!!! eeeeeeeeee
