Bye from Baby Bunny
Spanish BunnyJune 28th, 2022
As we posted here yesterday, Spanish Bunny is content and well at Gainesway, entering her second month of pregnancy. For more information on gestation through all three trimesters, visit the Breeding/Reproduction Blog of our Season 5 Education Site.
We waited a long time for "Baby Bunny" to arrive this winter, and Foal Patrol thanks Gainesway for giving us the chance to share Spanish Bunny and her Uncle Mo colt with their dedicated Foal Patrol fans. Spanish Bunny 22 continues to enjoy overnight turnout with his pasture buddies, all foaled around the same time, including his best pasture buddy, Money Huntress 22. Spanish Bunny 22 will be weaned in the next few weeks along with his pasture mates. The farm staff will wait for a mild day, and after the group is weaned, they will remain in their current barn while their mothers are moved to another field with other mares at about the same point in their current pregnancies.
Foal Patrol thanks Gainesway Farm for giving us insight into broodmare operations and for the many opportunities to learn more about the care and management of mares and foals. Thank you for all your hard work and an awesome season, and best wishes to your crew, broodmares, stallions, and horses of all ages.
Enjoy this final clip of the season from Baby Bunny at Gainesway.
