A couple of days ago a friend of mines first ever foal was born. About 3 or so months ago, she lost her husband to a logn battle with cancer.
Before my friend bred her horse, she was abotu to sell her because she couldnt handle carign for a foal and her husband in his condition.
Her husband talked her into it, because it would be her greatest pleasure to breed her mare (she had wanted t for a long time.)
The foal was born healthy and very friendly. He is a stunning little black one, and I saw the photos recently of them hugging and patting him, you should have seen the look on my friends face. I have never seen her happier since the death of her husband. This little foal, has brought so much joy into her life and that of her young daughter also. I am just so so happy for them.
Anyways, id just thought Id share. Just how much pleasure these animals brign to our world is amazing, and id be lost without them.
