Hello everyone! I am proud to inform that I now have pics from when I first got to meet the baby, and will be taking some new ones when I can.
So here is one I made of her:
Unfortunately though in the midst of her cuteness, we had an incident occur Wednesday.
My cousin and her friend (12) were at the farm that day. I had seen this friend of hers already handling the filly, placing her hands about a foot up the neck from the withers, her fingers in place where the mane meets the neck, and would squeeze with all her might when she thought the baby was doing something wrong. I remained compuse, told her I didn't like it. The baby would panic even when the girl said it didn't hurt, and try to run but she'd grab the baby and pinch harder.
Well later on when I was gone from the farm...my cousin's mom (my other Aunt) saw them out in the horse field...
They had the baby (not even 3 months old mind you) in the round pen, running her, scaring her to run with a leadrope and cracking it. My other aunt who partially owns the foal with me (by the way we are getting along well now) checked the baby out later on but first, she was pissed.
She yelled at the two because of their stupidity. She said if the baby went wild, she'd have to shoot her. They do not realize if that friend was to be hurt, our family could be sued. And we don't have that kind of money.They also realize much worse could have happened to the baby.
We are going to have to spend hours with her, considering the fact she is now scared of ropes and her leg became enflammed and hot with a possible fever.
Everyone speculates (because my cousin is a follower and has never been a leader) that it was the girls idea. I do especially after the pinching incident.
So needless to say, I have already cried and bit my lip because of anger at the fact they hurt my baby. She is actually more like my little SISTER.
Hope you like her! And the picture! As I said I will try to get more of them later!
