2000 Miniature Horse Foals


Wesco Farms Bella Luna - DOB 05/16/2000

In 2000 we had our first experience delivering a Miniature Horse foal. When we purchased our first three Minis - ET, Woody and Silhouetter - the breeder dropped them off in November 1999 with the last word that ET was due in May. My response was due for what? I hadn't "intended" to breed Minis, the three we bought were to keep me busy until I had time for a "real horse". A quick six months learn and buy everything you can ASAP, Una was born May 16th. Fortunately ET being an experienced pro foaler, found my hysterics funny running around trying to do everything the "proper" way. So while I ran around like a crazy person grabbing the foaling kit and all the "must haves" for foaling and post foaling she happily munched her hay and gave me the "silly human" look.<

we "thought/hoped" we'd see some spectacular loud color (we don't intentionally breed for color, but cross our fingers and consider it a wonderful bonus!). Una got his leggy, refined build, a couple of coronet bands of white and one blue! The star was compliments of her dam. We love our fist foal and she's a lifer here

Foals

We breed for foals to be born in April-May.

Foals receive their first hoof trim at one month and are put on a regular de-worming program (Safeguard until six months). We do not like to wean until at leat 5-6 months, so our foals are ready to go to their new home on or about October 1st.

We do not vaccinate before six months of age. Purchased foals can be vaccinated through UC Davis or with the new owners vet.

Colts that a new owner would like gelded, we're happy to make the arrangements through UC Davis, but this is dependent on fly season!

A 25% non-refundable deposit will hold them until weaning. Foals purchased before four months old we do not charge board or care fees.

We like to have paperwork and registration completed before a foal leaves including the DNA/PQ testing for AMHA horses.

If you'd like to come and see the Minis, please call or email us ahead so we can set time aside for you!
