  1. Wow! I had no idea that they could run so soon. What a lovely little chap, and he loves his Mum! Congratulations to all concerned!!!

    1. Yes foals are up and able to run withing 30 minutes or so - natural protection from when they were wild animals. Deer, etc are the same. (A couple more pics have been added by the way)

    What a little jumper already. Just too bad he was born too late to be on your "Escaped to the Country" TV segment. Such a lovely little chap. Thanks for sharing his young life with us.

    1. Yes he would have been the star of the show!

  3. Congrats on the new Baby Boy! Just look at those legs! Momma looks pretty proud, too. Bright Blessings and Wonderful Adventures await. <3

    1. Thank you Jax - he's now just over a week old and already growing big!

  4. If I'd been born with long legs like his, I could have made a much better living ... Oh, wait. That would likely have required me wearing a fur coat and peals as well... So, let's just leave it at eternal hope for recognition as a writer of historical fiction.


Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
