Finally we have a baby!!

When I saw white milk and wax last night I was pretty sure of a foal in the morning. All night I woke up every half hour and got up at 4:30 to go check. It was just getting light out. I found them in the field and saw something tiny moving! Sure enough there it was!

Its a colt and I imprinted him right away. He's doing awesome and loves people. Nellie is doing great too and was very happy to let me handle him. She's going to be kept on her toes with this one I think - he already runs and bucks in the air and she has to chase him around - lol!

Here is some pictures of him - I'll get more later of course. They will be better when its a bit lighter out. Enjoy!

Congratulations on the birth (finally)!

I'm surprised at how fast he has been able to stand up and run around. Could that possibly be due to the late birth at all? I'm still very new to horses.

He's a cutie! ^-^ Congrads.

I'm sure Mum's happy to have him out. :P

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thanks! Yes, he's pretty fast on his feet. They have to be in the wild, or predators can get them, so they have to be able to run as fast or faster than their mother an hour or so after birth. I think thats why they are born with such long legs!
