**Spices Foal**Ellies Updates

Sadly, its time to put her foaling thread to rest and start a new chapter on horse forum for Ellie the baby elephant

***For anyone interested in Spices foaling thread here is 61 pages of some good reading haha Spice's Pregnancy/Foal Thread***

So I'm going to start this thread on an adorable note, with pictures from her birth until now!!!

This is her at a few hours old. She was trying to suckle my fingers before her back legs where even out. I imprinted her, and after about a half hour of watching her flop all over the stall, and trying to eat the walls, we helped her stand up. Her legs where just so long she couldn't get them under her haha It her a whole 30 seconds to find and eat her first meal. From the moment she was born she adored people.

At 3 days old the little terror was trying to knock the stall walls down, so she got her first taste of freedom ( well the amount of freedom a 30 sq ft round pen provides that is)

She was such a scrawny little thing, haha and those long legs sure didn't help
Ellie027.jpg
Haha too soon she found out what those long legs were for. She took quite a few tumbles. haha I should of named her Grace

After a long day of playing we were taking a snooze in the stall.

At 3 days old she was completely halter broke. At 7 days old she lead like a champ.

The Next 4 are the most recent, from 2 days ago. I've now taken to calling her the hairless wonder. She has found something she really like to rub on, and has succeeded in rubbing off most the hair on her chest. As I mentioned before I should have named her grace because she is missing patches of hair on most of her body because of her escapades. Of course now that that the hair is grown back in she decided its the perfect time to start shedding , so of course shes looking pretty rough >.<

Finally shes starting to fill out. I think shes going to be a tank like her momma, shes starting to get a nice hip. She still hasn't quite grown into those legs but its a work in progress

you know, I so , so wish I had the chance to know a foal, from birth to growing up. I just have never had that wonderful opportunity. I admit to being jealous when I see these pictures. But, putting that aside, baby is gorgeous and you're doing a great job with her.

i feel the same way, but i intend to have a foal at some point in my future haha (well have a foal born on my property... not have a foal myself lol)

Very cute girl, despite her lack of hair lol!

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.
