CHF Simon’s Isabella greeting CHF Talbot’s Tessie
Number Four….already training for that “look at me” position!
Just a few hours old and outside for first time, this little filly has got the milk bar routine down pat. Everything has gone smoothly from start to finish, THANK YOU GOD!!! Seriously, I pray for my horses, for their well being and often, just to help me understand what I don’t know. Still working on the “Poop” post, just in case you were wondering!
The first of what turned out to be five fillies! Five in Five! The day began as every day, Dudley waking me around 5am…it is March and it is dark! But I made a cup of tea thinking, I will get him fed and do my morning pages ( an exercise in creativity) before heading for the barn to check the mares. Only two are in, one ready to foal and the other to keep her company. Isolation is not a calming situation for horses or anyone accustomed to a support system. Soon, the cup is empty and “morning pages” and complete. Note: I am writing about ‘Poop” this am. Having heard the second time Lois Lerner of the IRS has taken the fifth ( a denial to tell the truth about her knowledge of the events that led to the discovery the IRS had been discriminating against certain non-profit applications and politically connected organizations and individuals.) The whole ‘poop’ idea just evolved …..guess you will just have to read it. In the meantime, enjoy the babies as we post them the day of their arrival…even if it is in hindsight! You will see them in the order they come into the world. This one will be registered as CHF Talbot’s Tillie.
