I've been meaning to start this thread for a while, but just haven't been able to find the time until now. For those of you who followed my foaling thread, I bred my Arab/Paint cross mare to a Paint stallion. After 359 loooonnnnng days, and showing absolutely no signs of being imminent, Lilly had a beautiful maximum tobiano filly in the middle of a rainy day.
I have named her Elsa for a barn name (yes, from the movie Frozen) and her registered name will be (if available) Coos' Frosted Lilly. I'm waiting until she sheds her foal coat to register her because I am about 99.9% she will be Seal Brown like her mom.
Elsa is 5 1/2 weeks old now and has been a TON of fun. She leads like a charm, really yielding to pressure, but she actually yields a little TOO well, so we're working on the difference between a pet or scratch and when I actually want her to move off pressure. Other than that, she is wonderful to work with and is growing like a weed. I haven't gotten around to measuring her, but she is looking to be a sturdy girl as she grows. She is starting to shed her foal coat and dark fur is coming through, so she looks like a little raccoon right now. Here are some photos I snapped of her last weekend.
