New Foal!! (Bay Tobiano Colt) Pic heavy!!

I don't post much on here, so I never made a foaling thread for our pony mare, Missy, who we bought unknowingly pregnant.
Long story short, after speaking with her previous owner when we grew suspicious of her being pregnant, we found out that the probable sire is a dunskin AQHA driftwood/ doc olena stallion. We really didn't have a clue when she was due, so have been expecting it for QUITE some time now!
After many, many sleepless nights of watching Missy on camera, we ended up missing the birth of her colt altogether!!
I woke up after sleeping through 2 alarms at about 1:45 this morning to not one but two paint ponies on the cam! He was dry, nursing, and already on reasonably sturdy legs! I fell asleep a bit before 12 last night, so had just missed it! Apparently she knew she was being watched even on cam We decided on the name Toby.. I love it!
Any questions, just ask away
Here he is!

ETA: The blood on Missy's legs may seem excessive to some, but that is simply due to the fact that she has white legs which obviously show the blood much more than any other coat color would

Oh my god he is such a cutie! His markings kinda remind me of my Henny! :) Love his white tail, though.

Thank everyone Missy is being aggressively protective, so haven't been able get my hands on him yet He's super curious an friendly, but mama Missy won't let him near people yet!
Should be interesting when the vet comes in a bit to draw blood to check his igG levels!
