He kind of reminds me of a Duke.

Kansas, what I meant by that is exactly what you said. The very docile Lena has another side to her. I've had to watch myself pretty close when I go into her stall. Even if I just want to pet her, her ears go straight back and she gets ready to bite. Earlier today she was just warning me with little nips to what ever I was holding. When we were trying to get his blanket on, she came at me with teeth bared and almost got ahold of me. Though, she is a lot calmer when it is only me in there.

He is getting use to me. I was able to kneel down in front of him and he got to check me out pretty good. Sat there sniffing my hair, face, coat. He really liked my nose, actually licked me a few times. So he isn't bad around us. Probably would spend more time with us if his momma didn't make him stay by her.

Also, someone answer me this. When we first put the blanket on, we didn't want to stress them out to much so we just buckled the belly strap and had taken off the leggings. So earlier when I fed them, he let me put the straps on. Do you think if I wouldn't have put the straps on that the blanket could of slid over? He wore it without the straps for atleast 2 hours, laying down and all.

Hmm, we might have a name for him. Phoenix. As everyone may know, Phoenixes are a fantasy creature, when they die they are reborn from their ashes. Why are we thinking of this name for him? It goes back to when we first got Lena. Our vet checked in April, no foal. She wasn't bred in our care, so how did we get this little colt? Checked in August, no foal. Again, we didn't breed her. Now look at the bundle of joy we have?

Thoughts on this name? We are really looking for a name that suits him. One that has to do with going against the odds. I mean look at how skinny she was when we first got her. She was atleast a month pregnant with him at the time, he shouldn't be alive with that alone. Also a name to do with patience would be reasonable. Share your thoughts, if you have a better barn name with him, give it up with a reason. I really want his name to fit him.

Whew, I'd put her in check if you can! My little paint mare would lunge at other people looking in her stall at the baby and nipped at me a couple times the first day. She quickly straightened out though. Good luck! I just love that little guy and I bet he will have a great personality! My little filly I had wanted nothing to do with me at first! I had to corner her if she wasn't taking a nap to put my hands on her face, lol.

Being horseless is the pits!!

Yeah, no kidding Kansas. Now we have to worry about Lena getting at Lady. For a while, Lady wanted to be all up in Lena's buisness through the fence. Lena just scared her off enough times she finally started minding her own. Even then Lena kept a firm glare on her.

My first reaction to when she came after me was to get after her for it. I just refused to because didn't want her to associate anything bad with me being near the foal. Though now with his blanket on, school tomorrow (maybe) and a definite play time for about two hours today; I think she will calm down. Weather permitting they might get about three hours tomorrow to spend playing around. Though, it is supposed to snow/sleet/freeze here. If you went to the store today.. good luck. xD You would think we were having another blizzard with the way everyone acted.

I think mystery would be a cool name, personally. After all, he is a mystery baby. A mystery in phoenix could be a registered name. Then you could call him Phoenix or mystery. IMO
