The new babe on the ranch

Jess has this old roping mare that she adores, it has been her go to horse for parades, barrels, chasing cows, trail rides, 4-H, rodeo queen and whatever else one can do with a horse.
This mare is her "heart" horse.
She has wanted to breed a foal from this mare for years now, and last year it was time.
She took her to a lovely stud, and today, her new baby arrived.
We were delighted to be able to watch his birth.
He is a bay colt, no markings, as for now he has no name.

And, so it begins...

Crackers is wondering what is coming out the back end of Loretta

Jess, felt like she needed to help.

and, out he slides

The bonding begins

Very sweet

Jess is so happy


Handsome dude

Legs are a little long and kind of in the way

Plenty of onlookers..

Even, all the drafts got into the baby action

Mommy and me

Jess, is the over protective, helicopter mom

Finding the milky way

Baby had no shortage of hugs today

Welcome little fellow!
