How crazy!! The shape of the "star" on her forehead is almost the exact same as my mares!! That's so weird.
On another note, are these curly horses typically thick boned? I know nothing about them.

Snapped some pictures with a much better camera than the one on my phone, so now the colors are clearer. Even at three days old Takala is already wondering what is in mom's grain bucket. Takala isn't the tentative 'follow behind mom' type either, she wobbles around and expects mom to follow. Occasionally she will seek mom out for a drink, but she is already quite the independent! The only gaits she has down are walk and her interpretation of canter. Her trot is sort of a fast walk. She doesn't have a good place to burn around yet, but once our arena gets out of this frozen solid funk that it is in, Takala and Tenakee will get more supervised arena time. I can't really think of a way to get the two of them out to pasture without Takala wandering off, so they'll have to plop around in the arena and in their outside run until better weather, or Lala is more cooperative.

I even took her blanket off for a bit, it was a bit funny because you can tell she feels nekkid. It was a hassle getting back on, though. Takala was perfectly willing, but Tenakee wouldn't get her nose off my hands and pockets, perhaps thinking if I am this close to her baby that treats must be given. I rarely give any of my horses treats, but 3rd parties have been supplying her with plenty.

OP..where are you in Wis? My cousin lives in the Black River Falls area and she has/had a curly. I wasn't sure how common that breed is. Cute little filly for sure.

She's ADORABLE! Loving her spotted behind, and her lovely face. My guess is a lovely copper penny chestnut, for color.

I agree. Copper penny is a cute comparison for the color.

Lala is adorable! I can't get over how much I love her snow flaked tushy, lol!
Thank you for sharing with us all these baby pictures. Look forward to more!
