Update on the pregnant Merlot Moo

Yes at last here are update photos just taken of my girl Merlot (and her shadow - Persil Beaucoup)
She is due to foal any time from about two weeks now though I think it will be more towards the end of Nov.
Her coat (and they are NOT covered) gleams like burnished copper and she is contented and smug. Even Persil looks like he is in perky anticipation of his neice or nephew (someone to play with) Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pics...
PS sorry about the pics of Persil, who is NOT pregnant, I just can't resist uploading them as well as in my books, he gets 50 million points on the Cutometer reading
Oh and while I am bragging about him - here's a weird fact.
I broke my foot (very badly) about 2 1/2 months ago so I am still hobbling around with a stick. I practise walking the length of the paddock as it is flat and I enjoy being with the horses.
Persil walks just behind me at my pace (verrry slow) with his nose on my back, every so often he nudges me extremely gently. He also draws me into his chest with his head over my shoulder every minute or so and hugs me while knickering as mares do to their foals....WEIRD...or WHAT LOL
