    Her understanding of English might be crap, her understanding of kindness  and empathy is not

    Your vigils will be remembered long after the birth without doubt, by her, by Jerome and by you

    Another chapter in your book.

    I hope the wait is soon over for her, for you and for Jerome :rose:

    We are no further on.
    Jonquille is calm, tired, but let out into the field everyday, hopefully to walk and get things moving.
    Jerome sleeps with her in the stall now.
    If he is there he sleeps, albeit in a chair, but knowing he will hear a change.
    Toto is ever vigilant.
    As I get full nights at home, I am working on the farm and collecting feedstuffs etc from suppliers.
    Today was demolishing an old wire fence for replacement.
    And chatting to Jonquille.
    She likes resting her head on my shoulder.
    We are comfortable with each other.
    The vet is so laid back and unworried.
    11 o’clock now.
    Bed with phone by my side.
    I really had thought this would have been over the night of my first post.
    Updates as soon as.
    Thank you for thinking of a horse you do not know, so many miles from you.
    This world still has it’s share of nice people. :heart:

    I was excited and thought the foal has arrived!  Will look again tomorrow  early! Thank you, Stinky, for your endless days and nights of no sleep, to help this beautiful animal. :heart:

    We may not know the horse in person Stinky, or you for that matter, but thanks to your brilliant way or transporting us to where you are we feel as though we know both. Poor Jonquille! She must be heartily fed up, as no doubt is Jerome! He must be so anxious and that in itself is exhausting as I’m sure you all are. My money’s on a boy when it does arrive! I hope all goes well and not too much longer for all concerned! Fingers crossed. :heart:

    This is Her Royal Largeness, Jonquilles des Graves.
    This was taken this afternoon.
    As you can see, her foal seems to be rather fond of his present abode.
    Please note that I dressed up for the occasion.
    Jonquilles and I

    Not at all how I imagined you, Stinky, but perhaps it’s the fatigue. But no blue wellies!

    My wife says Jonquille’s “prête à pouliner”, but one can also say “prête à mettre bas”, apparently. Whatever one can say, it’s obvious she ain’t done it yet. Patience.

    30 degrees in the shade today, shorts a necessity, Blue wellies do not come in size 14’s.  Edit.That came across as rather abrupt, wasn’t meant to be, sorry, just mucked out 12 stables, hot and smelly needing a beer. :yahoo:

    Not how I imagined you either Stinky, nothing to do with tiredness, age or anything else, just that I always picture you as a cross between a dusty boy in blue wellies and a jolly little man in a blue bib and brace overall holding a pickaxe!

    Beautiful horse! That, as Liz said, is a lovely photo.  :yes:

    My fault, when loading it I did not realise you can choose how long it stays and I suppose it went default.
    So, the still pregnant Jonquilles des Graves et moi.

    The call has come and I am hotfooting it to the farm.
    Jonquilles is standing, ears back and trembling.
    The foal is still in the wrong position.
    Sideways on and arse down.
    Jerome is going to try and turn it as Mum is pushing and this is not good.
    I am to hold the biting end.
    As we watch, Jonquille shudders, grunts and her stomach comes alive.
    I have never seen anything like it.
    The foal is turning.
    By itself.
    Her stomach ripples, moves and her shape changes in a matter of seconds.
    And the foal is coming.
    And is here.
    A boy, big and strong.
    Ribs heaving, a bewildered newborn lies at Jonquilles’feet.
    He is beautiful, same face markings as Mum and three white socks.
    On unsteady legs we see his size.
    He is so tall.
    He is Anglo/Arab, but his rear end is all Anglo.
    Built for power and speed.
    He has to lower his head to suckle such is his height.
    Jonquilles is making comforting noises to him.
    And so it has finally happened.
    Well done Jonquilles.

    Fabulous, well done to Jerome and you, vet anywhere? And ofcourse the beautiful Jonquille. What a magical moment and extra special experience you will never forget Stinky. Perhaps he will be a prize racehorse!   🏇
