Sorry for the delay in updates - we have been revelling in the awesomness that is Teddy (he finally has a name) .
It's surprising how much time your horses can take out of your day (especially when you have a deckchair next to the stable haha).
For 3 weeks, Teddy wouldn't leave the safety of his stable - Fox would and did, but Teddy found the big wide world too scary a prospect to step outside! Finally, when I had gone a way for a few days with our younger boys (left hubby and eldest son in charge), a friend who had called to see our boy managed to get (i.e. Carry) Teddy outside where he stood with splayed legs wondering what the heck he was stood on! Once he realised that there was waaaaaay more space outside to run about, he's at the stable door first each morning raring to go!
Fox is now totally uninterested on what we do to Teddy - he can still be a big baby and squeal for mummy, but she knows we're not going to hurt him and carries on munching.
Once the hormones had calmed down and Fox was happy to let us near her precious baby, we started on the headcollar and leadrope training. We've had endless hours of fun with a (big) squirmy baby who can have some fantastic tantrums, kicking etc but it seems to have finally clicked that it's happening every night whether he likes it or not and last night it was on and both mum and baby were being led round the field in a matter of a minute - our best time ever haha.
A visit from the farrier has happened and although Ted kept his distance at first, the farrier was happy that we left him and after a while he was curious enough to some and check him out and nibble on his belt! Daily leg rubbing and lifting is underway - so the next time it'll be Teddy's turn with the farrier (who by the way said he's the most perfect put together foal he's seen - I'msoproud.com)
Teddy's teething at the moment and seems to find relief in biting everything he can - he particularly likes any item of clothing and will clamp on and just let you pull him around whilst he follows you.
He really is our superstar - Fox is her usual "Where's my dinner?" mare that she's always been, but she seems the calmest that she's been - motherhood suits her
Anyway, now for the best bit - the piccys:
Beautiful baby! A tricolored foal! You must be so happy!

He's not tricolored. He's bay.

He sure is a cute guy.

Gelded - check
Weaning - not yet, but preparing for it in the next month or so.
Passport name decided - YES!!!!! After almost 10 months, I finally have a name to register him that I think is worthy of his awesomeness :) - Bronntanas Fox - which means Fox's Gift in Irish - mum is called Foxy and she's from Ireland so I wanted something that linked her to him.
Perfect methinks :)
