Within the midst of tragedy, a flicker of light.

Some of you may have already read my thread Mare dies after foaling. What happened? about our horse passing away after foaling.

Today I went to visit the colt. As soon as I stepped into the stall he came over and was nickering at me. Put a smile on my face thats for sure. Everyone joked he thought I was his mother seeing as I was the one with him every step of the way through everything.

So now I will flood this post with pictures of this adorable, yet hilariously spunky colt.

A cat looks down on a man,
But a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal

What a cutie.

That mare looks like she is happy to have someone also. It looks like a good match so nice to know that in spite of what happened there appears to be bonding developing.

Oh, he is positively adorable. I'm so sorry about his dam -- but goodness is he a little darling. He has a sweet face to hide the mischief. ;)

They have bonded so well. She is very protective of him already. When he goes gallavanting around the stall and get out of her sight, she panics. She lost her foal a week ago today. So, in my mind, they most definatly needed eachother :)
