And here's another pic of the little guy that I took just before I left :)



But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

Aww thank you so much, everybody :)

He's probably one of the sweetest foals with which I've ever worked; he's playful but not out of control. (Plus, he gets a few points for that white marking on his forehead that, to me, kinda looks like an outline of New Jersey )

He would love that haha. But, as somebody said before, we have to be really careful not to spoil him, something that is difficult enough with foals who have normal relationships with mom...

What I found really neat, is that the marking on his forehead is identical to my Morgan's - only her cowlick faces opposite :)

Beautiful little man, it seems he is getting everything he needs physically but you are worried about his emotional state.
Well, if there are other foals for him to play with or a gelding (uncle) let me tell you, speaking from experience here (LOL), in a few weeks a colt will only regard his mother as an interesting smelling milk bar. He will be having such a ball with his mates that he will forget all about his mother. So don't worry about that side of it even though it is heartbreaking at the time.
Good luck with him - he really is a lovely looking chap.
