Our very first Rocky Mountain Horse foal Silver Sam Mountain Trooper was a winter foal too. Many many years ago my friend Louise and me went to America to find me a Rocky Mountain Horse, since I fell in love with a cross RMH and had an very strong urge to own a full Rocky wich I could breed with. We found two wonderfull mares, Miss Daisy Mae (an older mare) and Nicky’s Delight (a 2 year old). I wanted Daisy in foal before coming overseas ofcourse so had to breed her in December (we bought them late in that year).
A dream foal, a beautiful chocolate fillie, came in November when it was already real cold. I bought a babyblancket to be sure. I never needed it, since the foal was completely suited to the cold weather. So maybe Sue’s foal is first making more coat??
