She's such a gorgeous horse! Love her face. Glad to know that she's in a safe place, and you were willing to take on the responsibility of a horse who needed groceries and care, and was probably pregnant. Definitely can't wait to see baby pics when she pops. Best of luck! She's looking so good, and has come such a long way since you got her.

Baby has arrived!!!

So today, Ellie was pacing, circling around and around the yard, under the deck, all over the place. I kept saying, that foal is gonna come tonight...and lo and behold, she went and laid down in the middle of their hay bale (that they had conveniently spread out in a nice big fluffy pile)...and out popped baby! The whole thing took less than ten minutes start to finish, it was just the most amazing thing I have ever seen! Baby and mom are doing well. It got dark pretty fast but we are pretty sure we have a little filly! She has already stood up and walked all over the place, eaten from mama, and had a nice poop. She is very curious already, and we were able to introduce ourselves to baby as mama watched closely. I think we took about a gazillion pics and video of the whole thing! More pics to come tomorrow. I am so so grateful just at this moment. Mama and baby got through the whole danged process with no problems, no scary moments. My heart goes out to anyone who has lost a mare and/or foal this year.

Baby has arrived!

Introducing Aine, our new filly! I will post some pics for everyone (hope its not too many)! So far mama and baby are healthy and doing great! Aine is hopping, trotting, and learning how to kick. She already loves to nuzzle us, and is not shy at all. Anyone want to tell me what her poop should look like at 1 day old? Just want to cover my bases here. Ellie has been keeping her in or near our unfinished smaller barn that we partially covered on one end with a tarp, rather than in the barn, maybe because it is closer to the house. She lets us close, lets Idaho our paint horse close, but keeps our two younger horses a bit further away from the foal. I can't exclaim enough over this new baby! I feel so privileged to be part of such an amazing thing!

Yay! Glad to see everything went without a hitch. I know you were a little worried, given the condition ellie reached you in. Aine is beautiful.
