It's A Boy!


Born to Maggie the Minature, a colt weighing in at 19.5 pounds and 6.1hh (25 inches). He looks like his daddy, as the mom is a dark bay.

I had just returned home from Home Depot, and the girls were out in the field gathering horses for the farrier. While the farrier worked, one of the girls looked in the stall, and there he was! They'd, after weeks of sleeping in the barn, missed the actual birth.

We are all happy though that he is very strong and nursing well. Funny, even only an hour old, he tried to buck and kick at us, though he could barely stand.
