I thought I'd post pics for you all to enjoy - we just moved the horses to a new boarding place called Birds Hill Ranch, and the guy who owns it bought this dapple grey QH mare already pregnant. I honestly have NO idea why, it's a dude ranch of sorts in a provincial park so all the horses are used for trail rides. I rarely even see Ivor ride, and I certainly can't imagine why anybody wants a mettlesome foal around!
Either way, it's nice getting to enjoy a newborn foal with none of the responsibility! The mare has been a sweetheart, doesn't mind us in and around the foal. He was born sometime in the middle of the night, early May 26 (yesterday). He was born and standing when the ranch hands arrived at 7:30am. These pics are from last night, so about 12 hours old!
I wish I could name him, but heck I don't even know HER name so for now it's Mare Mare and Baby!
