A little background: I was searching for a stallion to breed my mare to. I came across an ad for a gorgeous black tobiano stallion, and got in contact with the breeder. I instantly switched from breeding my mare to purchasing a foal in utero. One breeding caught my eye, genetically guaranteed to be a buckskin tobiano or a smokey black tobiano. With buckskins and paints being my favorite color, and both parents having great conformation, I jumped at the chance and paid the baby off in 3 months.
I had an inkling one morning that my baby had been born, and surprise, I got an email from the breeder saying the baby was here! Mama was being protective so she couldn't sex the baby, but she said it was a gorgeous buckskin foal with LOTS of chrome. I was hopping around the office I was so excited. I came home to pictures of my baby colt, Hennessy! He was the cutest little thing I'd ever seen, and immediately fell in love with him. Seeing as how I paid him off before he was born, I was able to choose the registered name. With the help of the FB group, I was able to come up with "Swen Sparks Fly." Not only did I have a flashy baby, he had a flashy name!
Henny was born April 23rd. My birthday is April 19th. My sister's birthday is the 24th. I also have two friends, ThirteenAcres(Tori) and Harley_D(Carrie) who had colts born on the same day! Henny was weaned August 13, and will be ready for pickup on Saturday. I'll be making a 4 hour drive one way to get my little monster, but he is so worth it! And for reading this novel, you will get plenty of pictures :) The pictures are in chronological order. I will definitely be posting more pictures when he gets home!
