Sending positive thoughts to Wrecker!! Glad chilly is doing great as well.

Big hugs from us all and we hope Wrecker's on the mend x

We had to leave Fox on her own (apart from putting feed and water through the door) for the weekend as she turned into a monster mummy and thought that everyone was out to get her baby! My fear was that she would harm her babe!

But Chilly seems like a much more chilled out mum - she's living up to her name - and why wouldn't she be with a beautiful little filly at her side x

Well I'm glad to hear that, so far, she is looking better. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you guys that Wrecker keeps going in that direction and you don't have any complications. She is just adorable! Such an expressive little face!

that's unfortunate that Fox is being a booger. But, give her some time and she'll come around!

My mom is actually quite mad and Chilly. Whenever she goes into the stall to do something, give her water, food, clean the stall...Chilly places herself between my mom and the baby. Protecting baby. And not letting my mom touch her. But me, lol, I can go into the stall and do whatever I want, include hugging baby, and Chilly just glances at me and then goes back to either eating or napping. LMAO. My mom is NOT happy. She says she wants her OWN baby. LoL.

I find it quite amusing to be honest.

Swelling was down last night at the midnight check. And has stayed away when my mom fed them this morning. (Im sure with an evil mare glare from Chilly towards my mom...*snicker*snicker*) can't wait to see how she looks tonight.

Takala and Tenakee are the same way. I try to explain to people how they are, and they say she must be skittish, or mom must be over-protective. I try to explain it, but the only people who understand are those who see it themselves. I was very cautious the first time I went in the stall with Tenakee and her new baby, but Tenakee wasn't too bad with me, just a little on edge when we dipped Takala's navel, but that was about it. I'm still the only one who can really get my hands on Takala, but she'll come up to other people through the fence. Tenakee could care less when I play with her baby, but with others she turns very 'mother goose' and hides her. Not that I mind. Makes me feel special, such an honor to be picked by a old nag to baby sit her little devil child. But I did spend most of winter scratching her bottom and other unreachable places while she was big, so it was the special bond we forged.

Hopefully Wrecker will be all clear in a few days, those little horses how they manage to hurt themselves. Takala had an ugly scab on her soft little nose for her first few weeks, and it has finally healed, but she is shedding and is patching and weird anyway. Her walking should improve. Takala only really walked funky on one foot, where she'd walk on her heel or her fetlock. Now she has straightened out, but I still occasionally catch her rocking back on that one foot. Best of luck to all of you! I have to say I was really looking forward to this baby since last year, and Wrecker is a beauty and I'd love to see this pony grow up!

Thanks BITD. I do feel somewhat special when Chilly allows me to handle baby and glares at everyone else. But, I rescued Chilly at 7 months. And we've been together ever since, I trained her on the ground, and under saddle, and have really been the only person to ride her. Only a handful have.

Wreckers leg appears 100% better. Swelling has disappeared. She's not lame at all. And she's sprinting around the stall like its a racetrack!

Tonight she even got in trouble by Chilly. LoL. She was sprinting around and around and around the stall while it was being cleaned. She was running behind mom, around her, under her neck and to the end of the stall and all over again. After 4 times, Chilly pinned her ears and gave her a momma-mare-glare. Poor Wrecker's fun came to an abrupt halt as she stopped. Only to start again just moments later.

She is such a doll. Congrats on you new babe!

There are times when you can trust a horse, times when you can't, and times when you have to.

Your poor mum - tell her I know how she feels

Fox seems to have calmed down considerably now - and is only grumpy when we go near her food so back to normal now for us haha.

The little man feeds (quite vigorously sometimes) and Fox will nip his bum - sending him into a bucking gallop round the stable - so funny

Isn't it amazing just how capable they are after just a few short days - and before we know it, they'll be all grown up xx
