    Oh my goodness! She's gorgeous. Palomino or dun? I'm a sucker for chrome. I'm getting foal fever just looking at her. But my mare is 19 now, and she didn't have the best mothering instincts the one time I had her bred. Welcome to the forum. Please post more pictures as Slipper grows.

    Kassie and everyone, thanks for all the kind remarks about Slipper. She is palomino and will be registered Paint (solid paint bred) and AQHA, She could also get Pinto and Palomino papers. We only breed one or two mares a year so I know what you mean by foal fever, I have already bred one for next year and I find out tomorrow if she's in foal or not. Spring is really an exciting time here!

    She's darling, Anna! I've been away from here for a while- but BD told me you'd posted foal pictures. Hope they're both doing well!
