Noo, I am a horrible horse owner. I can't pick a name for her. It's the hardest thing ever, I don't know why really.

Since you're from Nordic stock-- what about Freya-- Goddess of Valkyries-- who ride noble steeds..

He's doing very well for a premature foal. I don't have a lot of experience with premie foals, but if they're anything like humans, they will be the size their genes call for if momma had good nutrition with no other complications, and baby gets good nutrition while growing up.

Thanks for all the pics, and good luck.

Druydess, I am considering Khaleesi right now, and I still have Stormborn in my head.

So I have a absolutely horrible picture to share... the bad quality is beyond acceptable in the second picture but I had my camera in the car so I had to film with an old mobile phone, and then take a snapshot from the film.

But it shows how much she has grown from one week old to...


...9 weeks old.

See she is going to make up that height! I'm sure she will grow to be her expected height :)

Foal
My two year old Arab is quite small. His breeder told me that when he was born he was so small they used to cradle him in their arms like a cat. Arabs tend to be slow growers, so I'm really curios to see what he tops out as. We plan on training him to drive, but I'm hoping he is going to be big enough to ride as well.

Your mare is beautiful and I just love that cute little foal! She is precious. Your mare's color is just wonderful. There is nothing prettier than a deep liver chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail.
