Heather delivered her unbelievably large colt last night at 11.
He is so tall, so beautiful, and so affectionate! He was born into the arms of the barn owner, who fortunately spotted that Heather was in trouble.
And here's why. Look at him! Huge! He's 19 hours old in this picture.
Delivering such a large foal ripped her badly, but after a check at the vet it appears that she'll be fine. But it was an exhausting night.
And the colt... I've never seen such a friendly colt. He comes right up to you for a petting and loves to be handled and hugged.
And he bounces around so happily.
His legs are nearly as long as momma's.
He's got the cutest little curl to his ears. Can you see them?
DH always has a way with animals. Colt (yet unnamed) walked right up to him.
And Heather is a wonderful, attentive mom.
Tomorrow I'll have a little movie. And maybe a name too.
Colt will be sold relatively quickly, he's really built for hunter jumper and Dad's a national champion. As affectionate as this boy is, he's going to be a dream.
