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
Jess is so happy
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!
