Our First and Second of the Year

This morning we had our first baby of the year(*should* be second but the first mare is holding out on us). She is a future-registered American Saddlebred Filly. She has the CUTEST ears ever, real long and shapely. Looks just like her mother, and she is very shy. She'll let me touch her nose and face but if I even reach for her shoulder she'll shake (like a horse after rolling), and scamper off. Her mother's name is Whinny(barn name), so she is the Minny Whinny.

To me, she kind of looks like a Buffalo, but I guess she'll do just fine. Hehehe.

Well, okay, now that she is starting to stretch out, she is losing the look of a little buffalo/wildebeast. Hehe, she is a doll!

Her little neck is so short, but it appears like it is in a good spot.

She is such a little cutie. It was her idea to let me pet her today. I went out and checked on the other girls and stopped at her last. She came right up to investigate me. It took her lots of smelling before she would let me touch her. When I stuck my arm out straight and under her neck, she smelled me up my arm and I started petting her neck. And then she started trying to nurse me. Hehehe, it was so cute. She was nuzzling under my arm like she was looking for something.

Right now, she is a very promising filly. She has good size, looks like she will have good use of her legs, nice pretty head neck and ears, and she has a great attitude.

I'll try to get some better pictures on Friday.

Awww! She's absolutely adorable! I love foals, they're so soft and fuzzy and have such cute facial expressions!

I know! Thier eyes are always so big. "WHOA!" "What is this? What are you? Cool!"

Broodmares raising thier babies/babies growing up is one of my most cherished things with horses. There really is nothing better. Unless you count your good old buddies that you share a deep history with.

Whinny is being a fabulous mother. I am exceedingly proud of her. Not her first foal, but she is a very responsible mother. She lets her baby (already) go a little ways off, but still keeps her and the other curious mares in check.

This filly likes to run. I don't think she stopped running yesterday.
