She's just too cute!

She looks like she'll grow up to be a wonderful horse!

It sure looks like Ellie is having a wonderful time with Poppy

PRECIOUS!! I cannot believe I missed your post (I kept checking the breeding section) :) Good to know that was a good indicator that you saw...I will be watching for it now for sure!

I cannot believe how adorable she is! I love the name poppy by the way!

By the way...Meg looks exhausted in some of those pics. :) It is nice that she is such a relaxed mom too though.

Just look at the legs on that little girl!

Was the stud homozygous? Poppy got great color. :)

Don't worry about posting too many pictures, nobody could possible have an overload of foal shots :)

Thanks everyone.

I cant believe how nice the weather has been over here since she was born! We've gone from snow, wet and windy to glorious sunshine.
Poppy is an extrememly curious little girl, and is getting more and more playful by the day. She's so strong too! Cant believe she is only 5 days old, feels like she's been with us ages.
I managed to get the leading out of the stable issue sorted. Meg just would not lead, so for a few days the only way I could get them either in or out was a scarf round Poppy's neck and my other arm gently placed around her backend! It worked though, Meg just followed, but very closely. Now its gone the other way and Meg will lead with Poppy in close pursuit. :)
Its really cute how she has taken to Ellie (my daughter), she follows her around the paddock and calls for her when she sees her coming. I could just sit and watch them both all day. :)
Megs being a fantastic mother, she's so loving, and protective of her. She's happy for us to go and stroke, play and lavish affection on Poppy. I dont forget Mummy though, she gets plenty of kisses and cuddles too.

Its great you got a friendly filly! Reminds me of Saro at that age, wasn't afraid of humans the moment she popped out. I do put a halter on for short times (5 min. or so) at that age. You might try getting one on her when you have time to keep an eye on her.
I love Poppy for a name. I love flower/plant names, I have an Ivy and a Daisy (dogs). Now you have a Willow and a Poppy
